Email from a Martian: Selective hardline when applying U.S. laws

The internet is now a Solar System phenomenon. This email showed up in the inbox recently:

Dear Porkopolis:

My fellow Martians and I have been monitoring some of your fellow countrymen's logical contorsions with two major issues your country is dealing with. We are hoping you can explain the following:

We have figured out that both the NSA surveillance and illegal immigration issues both have homeland security implications.

What we don't understand is how a paper like the Philadelphia Inquirer can first take a very hardline, no "disturbing end-run around U.S. surveillance laws and, possibly, the U.S. Constitution" approach on one hand but then take an "common's not amnesty" approach on the other.

You Earthlings are a curious bunch. Look forward to a reply.

Marty the Martian

Our friend from the red planet has me stumped. Possible replies in the comments are welcomed.

They're supposed to be smarter than us. Let them do a mind probe of the "journalists" at the rapidly declining (circ down 5% in 6 months) Philly Inquirer, and explain it to US.
