You say Tequila, we say Scalia!

From CNN’s website:

Justice Antonin Scalia opened the Supreme Court’s new term Tuesday by questioning whether a man deported to Mexico after a drug conviction would be “abstaining from tequila” for fear of violating his U.S. parole terms.

The remark came as justices heard an immigration case involving a Texas man, Reymundo Toledo-Flores, who was deported in April after being convicted of illegally entering the United States.

This may be a small quibble, but language matters. Isn’t a person who is deported after “being convicted of illegally entering the United States” a Mexican man, not “a Texas man”?


One response to “You say Tequila, we say Scalia!

  1. Very good catch.
