A personal look at the orchestrated backlash against an immigrant rights activist reveals fierce conflict in California’s Orange County over what it means to be American. Once regarded as the vanguard for the ultra-right movement, Orange County is becoming less predictable, less tidy, more diverse, more interesting. In a word: Mexican. But this is where the immigrant backlash of the 1990s first caught fire and, for some, continues to burn – even within the Latino community.
