Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy

GOP in More Trouble with Hispanics than President

Rating: 4 votes, 5.00 average.

If President Obama does well with Hispanic voters next year, it will be due in large part to the GOP wasting a huge opportunity to convince those voters that they are worth supporting. Interestingly, in a new poll released by Univision, Rick Perry is doing worse with Latinos than Mitt Romney, surprising given that Perry has the more moderate positions on immigration issues of interest to the Hispanic community. Of course, that may be due to some of the highly publicized gaffes made by the Texas Governor. The President's support is getting closer to the levels he was at early in his presidency which may be the result of his shifts in immigration policy over the last few months.

    The key piece of information here is not so much if Hispanics support the president more than the republicans but if they actually go out and give him their vote given his record, is the motivation there to believe on this guy....again? He will have to see that and tell them why, off course he will have t promise CIR the question is will they believe him? I guess the calculation is that people are soooo desperate for CIR that they will believe him again as opposed to saying fool me once shame on you fool me twice shame on me!!!

    Let us not forget that in the Gallup tracking poll the President's position has improved considerably. It has to do with the economy..and the fact that they either messed up calculating the August jobs numbers or they fixed it to look better later. When it was reported in early September the number of private sector jobs created was 17,000...by the time of the final revision it was 170,000...a ten fold increase. In early September they were talking about recession..now with the exception of two forecasters, no one is!

    Generally:

    o ICE attorneys and officers have both stated informally that they do not intend to comply with the June 17 memos absent specific rules to do so. (3 responses from

    Sept. 20, 2011).

    ICE ERO:

    o ICE's initial response to a PD request was to accelerate removal, but after further advocacy, ICE permitted the client to continue on an order of supervision while awaiting approval of a family-based petition. (Oct. 19, 2011).

    o An officer reportedly stated that he did not care about "any of this" and that he is in the business of arresting and deporting. (Aug. 21, 2011).

    o ICE encouraged an attorney to request deferred action in a particular case. (Aug. 9, 2011).

    ICE OCC:

    o One attorney reports that while proceedings have been terminated for a few DREAM candidates, nothing else has changed. (Sept. 30, 2011).

    o One attorney was told that OCC already reviews cases for discretion and HQ has not provided any guidance specific to the June 17 memos or the August 18 case review announcement. (Sept. 30, 2011, Charlotte, NC).

    o OCC is operating no differently than before.

    (Sept. 20, 2011).

    o ICE was willing to administratively close (but not terminate) a case in which the client would be eligible for adjustment of status through a family-based petition in a couple of years (Aug. 3, 2011), however, another attorney reports having a similar request denied. (Aug. 3, 2011).

    As a die-hard republican, I hate to say it but I am not surprised. As Senator Rubio put it, worse than the policy differences (actually quite small) is that "the tone is all wrong". Perry had a chance to correct that but his campaign has been less than inspiring.

    I think it's more about substance than tone. For instance, Greg links to Marco Rubio "dumping on immigrants" in 2008. I looked for something of a hostile tone but the only thing there was a generic, tone-free statement of his position against amnesty. Merely holding that policy position constitutes "dumping on immigrants"? To those who think immigration law should mean something and be enforced, there doesn't seem to be an acceptable tone to express that to hardcore anti-enforcements.

    Yes, there are plenty of stupid, tone deaf statements made--I'm not referring to those (which play into the hands of anti-immigration law demagogues). I mean what appears to most as the overreaction which greets anything less than 100% agreement with the anti-enforcement agenda or use of a disfavored word (alien, illegal, etc.) Even people like Cecila Munoz get the vitriolic treatment! However politely a pro-enforcement politician makes his case, anti-enforcements are going to accuse them of lacking civility, fostering hate, etc. A politician should heed the call to consider tone when it comes to immigration, but some of these critics simply aren't reasonable. Let's face it, you're never going to satisfy the Roberto Lovatos of the world.
