An activist calling for stronger measures to fight illegal immigration in Arkansas holds a town hall meeting in Benton County on Monday. Fifteen people show up, and two walk out.
The petition drive the activist is pushing to restrict state services for illegal immigrants failed to land enough signatures for consideration on the ballot in November.
Is it the message or the messenger? Is it time to consider that illegal immigration, as a red hot vote-moving political issue, simply is not the wildfire issue that advocates want it to be?
