ITEMS


1. Comment: Children Are Our Future - The Democratic leadership
has indicated that DREAM will be on the Congressional floor
beginning next week onwards. DREAM has 134 co-sponsors in the
House and 40 in the Senate. Meanwhile, Miami Herald
http://www.miamiherald.com/2010/11/18/1931760/birthright-citizenship-will-be.html#ixzz15kSU2UjR
reports that "As one of its first acts, the new Congress will
consider denying citizenship to the children of illegal
immigrants who are born in the United States. Those children, who
are now automatically granted citizenship at birth, will be one
of the first targets of the Republican-led House when it convenes
in January. GOP Rep. Steve King of Iowa, the incoming chairman of
the subcommittee that oversees immigration, is expected to push a
bill that would deny "birthright citizenship" to such children."
The DREAM Act and the attempt to repeal the 14th Amendment are
diametrically opposite views of children. Are children an asset
or a liability? Our future hangs in the balance.

    With regard to ID's comment "Children are our future" in the November 23 edition, the real issue behind both the DREAM Act and the counter move by immigration opponents to nullify the 14th Amendment's guarantee of birthright citizenship is not whether children are an asset or a liability, but whether non-white ethnic groups are.

    Just as the Republicans have largely written off and tried to limit the influence of African-American voters during the past 45 years, they are now doing the same with Latino and Asian voters, whom they regard, not always accurately, as firmly pro-Democratic. Immigration politics is, first and foremost, racial politics.

    The most frightening thing about the Republican resurgence is that the Republicans have become so extreme in their wish to appeal to white voters, especially less educated ones, that they have adopted racist policies that formerly used to be identified only with far right extremist groups such as the Neo-Nazis and the KKK.

    What used to be limited to the ravings of extreme white supremacist crackpots, namely that America is in danger of being taken over by "inferior", "criminal" or "impossible to assimilate", "non-white" racial groups (and let us not forget that most or all of these labels were applied to what are now mainstream immigrants of European ancestry such as Jews, Italians and Eastern Europeans in the 20th Century, Irish in the 19th and Germans in the 18th), has now become mainstream, thanks to Fox News and the open bigotry of Tea Party candidates such as Rand Paul and Sharron Angle, not to mention Arizona's Republican Governor Jan Brewer and her cohorts in that states's legislature and the Maricopa County Sheriff's office.

    One of the most important lessons we must learn from 20th Century European history is that when unpopular minority groups start to lose their citizenship rights or to be evicted from a given country as undesirable for whatever reasons, fascism is usually not far behind.

    We must make sure that this does not happen here. But in order to do that we must realize that it can happen here, and that it is happening here. It is not only the future of our children that is at stake in the debate over the DREAM Act and the 14th Amendment. It is the future of our existence as a diverse, tolerant, multi-ethnic society. Beyond that, it is the future of our democracy.
