Son of Undocumented Immigrants Wins Gold


Whatever you do, don't let Michelle Malkin and her horde of flying wingnut monkeys hear about Henry Cejudo:
Henry Cejudo, the 21-year-old wrestling prodigy who had wrestled in only one world-level senior tournament before Beijing, has won the Olympic gold medal in men's freestyle 55-kilogram wrestling.
Cejudo, the son of undocumented Mexican aliens who bypassed a college career to try to become an Olympian, assures the United States of winning a freestyle wrestling gold for the ninth consecutive Olympics at which it has competed.
If the nativist wingnuts -- the ones demanding the deportation of all 12 million "illegal aliens" (as they like to call them) -- get ahold of his parents, they could wind up back in Mexico. Heaven forfend if any children should be involved.
