Kirk Semple wrote in the New York Times wrote on July 24, “After federal border agents detained several Mexican immigrants in western New York in June, an article about the incident in a local newspaper drew an onslaught of vitriolic postings on its Web site. Some were racist. Others attacked farmers in the region, an apple-growing area east of Rochester, accusing them of harboring illegal workers. Still others made personal attacks about the reporter who wrote the article.”
Apparently, these and other racists posts originated from computers of Homeland Security.
