A friend becoming a stranger

Question:

I hung up the phone last night after talking to my best friend of 30 years. I haven’t been able to think of anything else, since then. So, I decided I needed to ask someone I admire to help me understand. She and I have spent so much time learning about different paths to spirituality, reading The Power of Now, Conversations with God together, and traveling to Las Vegas to see all of you wonderful teachers at the “I Can Do It” Events. So my question is this: She told me on the phone that the Mexican immigrants are ruining everything in CA. They take jobs away from us and don’t want to work just drain the government, etc. How can I reconcile this behavior with who I thought she was and accept or help her see exactly what she is saying? I tried to ask her where she got those facts and she said, “I do my research”. Am I crazy? It just seems that the “right wing extreme positions” (I don’t know how to describe that) cannot coincide with A Course in Miracle’s teaching of love and acceptance and abundance for all. Help me, I don’t want to lose my dear friend, but I don’t know how to talk about things with her anymore. Thank you for any insight you may have for me.
