Added DiffLines:

* KickTheDog: The horrible treatment that immigrants suffer at the hands of Springfieldites. Special mention goes to the elementary school students (and principal) picking on Uter, a foreign exchange student who came to America legally. Even [[NiceGuy NED]] [[TookALevelInJerkass FLANDERS]] joins in!


Added DiffLines:

* PetTheDog: Groundskeeper Willie leaps to Uter's defense when the rest of the school starts picking on him for being an immigrant.

* BaitAndSwitch: After Apu reveals that he, too, is an illegal immigrant, Homer (one of the major proponents of the anti-immigration bill) has an empathetic expression and admits, "I got so swept up in the scapegoating and fun of Proposition 24 I never stopped to think it might affect someone I cared about. You know what, Apu?.... I'm really, really gonna miss you." And proceeds to staple an "I want you OUT" poster next to him. ** Later, during the party held to celebrate Apu's recently-gained American citizenship, Homer makes a speech that convinces the attendees to vote against Proposition 24. It still passes with a landslide.

Added DiffLines:

* JuryDuty: After getting his citizenship, Apu receives a letter summoning him for jury duty and he happily takes it as a sign he's now an American. Then he casually tosses the letter at a wastebasket. It contradicts [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS5E20TheBoyWhoKnewTooMuch another episode where Apu was a juror]].
