Is This One of the Four Boxes Used to Defend Liberty?

Lisa Benson, 5/12/11:

Those rascally Democrats have locked up Immigration Reform in a giant Ballot Box, and are using it to lure unsuspecting citizens in so that they what, exactly?

And are the people being lured supposed to represent Latinos -- that first guy's mustache, maybe? -- or the kind of upstanding Orange County Republicans Benson usually aims her cartoons at?

And what kind of Immigration reform is it that we would have had without a ballot box? Is Benson advocating for some undemocratic diktat?

Good editorial cartoons don't leave the reader guessing as to the cartoonist's intentions. Nice labels, though.
