Dec 22 - Articles And Bloggings

-----------------IMMIGRATION DAILY FROM ILW.COM------------------

December 22, 2010,1222.shtm


1. Comment: Articles And Bloggings -For many years we carried blog

posts with titles of the format "Article: Bloggings On PERM Labor

Certification by Joel Stewart". The problem with this format of

titles was that it did not mention the specific content of the

article. To solve this problem, a few months ago we changed the

title of blog posts to the title of the first blog post in that

article, for example: "Article: PERM Opinions Vary Greatly! By

Joel Stewart". During the past three months many readers have

complained that this format of titles for blog posts makes it

impossible for them to distinguish between blog posts and other

articles. Many of the blog posts tend to be shorter than most

articles we carry and we understand the need to distinguish them.

From this issue onwards, we will be changing the first word of

the title of blog posts to "Bloggings:" for example: "Bloggings:

PERM Opinions Vary Greatly! By Joel Stewart" Please let us know

how this change of format works for you. As always, we are always

open to hear any comments you may have on any aspect of Immigration

Daily. Write to us at

    No one can fault either David Bennion's article in support of DREAM Act activists, who were so cruelly disappointed by the deadly combination of Republican bigotry and Democratic cowardice in the Senate last Saturday, or Greg Siskind's article urging President Obama to take the route of executive action (ID December 23).

    But both articles only deal with pieces of the whole picture. Despite all attempts to convince immigration restrictionists that DREAM was in a class by itself, only tangentially related to the larger issue of immigration reform, it was impossible to sell that idea to the wider public, poisoned by the unrelenting stream of anti-immigrant propaganda coming from the right.

    In the same way, despite the merits of DREAM, it was also impossible to conceal the fact that it would only have helped a small percentage of the people who need relief from our punitive, irrational, enforcement-mad, immigration system. DREAM was, in one sense, just throwing a bone to Latinos and other minority immigrants by a Democratic party and administration that should have been doing much more to support real immigration reform.

    The heart of our immigration dilemma is not the failure of peripheral proposals such as DREAM, no matter how distressing. It is not even the fact that Republicans (except for a very few courageous examples such as Senator Lisa Murkowski) are voting like bigots. What else do we expect from them?

    The immigration problem today lies squarely in the White House, with a president who is doing everything in his power to curry favor with anti-immigrant racists even as he mouths empty phrases about immigration reform. We have a president who wants to have it both ways on every issue of social and racial justice. Just for one example, gay advocates came off much better on Saturday then immigrant advocates did.

    But even with the repeal of DADT already signed, how long will it be before gays openly serve in the military? Don't hold your breath. The president is going to take his time, perhaps a very long time, before he does anything concrete to offend the homophobes, whose votes he is also hoping to hold on to.

    In the same way, Obama thinks that he has the immigrant communities in his pocket, because they have nowhere else to go. Nothing will affect the anti-immigrant, enforcement only mindset in the White House until that dynamic changes.

    There is a spelling mistake at the end of the third from last paragraph in my previous comment. I meant to write: "than immigration advocates did", not "then immigration advocates did". My apologies.

    To take up where my last sentence left off, advocates for Latinos and other immigrant groups (including, but by no means limited to South Asians, who are being singled out as scapegoats by this administration to an unprecedented and previously unimaginable extent) must make it clear to the White House that their communities cannot be taken for granted by the Democrats in 2012.

    One way to do this would be for voters belonging to immigrant communities, together with progressives infuriated by the president's sellouts on other issues not directly related to immigration, to form a new movement. This movement, unlike the Fox News Tea Party, would be a real populist movement, not just a front for the big corporations and right wing billionaires. "Tequila Party" would be a good name. I do not think I am the first one to think of it.

    If Obama and his immigration enforcement-only minions are faced with a real revolt on the left, with the likelihood that Latino, Asian and progressive voters may go elsewhere in 2012, we will start to see a changes in White House immigration policy faster than anyone can say "Janet Napolitano" or "Donald Neufeld".
