1. Comment: Taken For A Ride - Politico



 


http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1010/43928.html

reports that leading Hispanic organizers in battleground states


are seeing a startling drop-off in dollars spent on Hispanic


outreach efforts, while the Democratic National Committee claims


that it is pouring money into the efforts. We saw a largely


symbolic last minute effort by Senator Reid for DREAM just before


adjourning for the elections. Senator Menendez of the Hispanic


caucus suggests that the Senate will consider a CIR bill during


the lame duck session, Representive Velasquez of the Hispanic


caucus is campaigning on claims that there will be a vote on


DREAM during the lame duck. We are skeptical about these claims


from the Democratic leadership whose pattern of actions over the


last two years points to paying only lip service to the


immigration cause while taking Hispanic voters for granted.


Furthermore, the consensus among political analysts portends a


large Republican wave, sufficient to dislodge Speaker Pelosi and


much of the House Democratic leadership from power, even within


the Democratic caucus. We are betting that the current


Congressional Democratic leadership will offer the sweeping


election results as an excuse for postponing immigration to the


112th Congress, proving once again that their commitment to


immigration reform is less than whole-hearted.

  1. Helen S (Proud Army Wife)'s Avatar
    Hello, my name i's Helen S. I'm a proud military wife. My husband is currently stationed in korea. I think it's sad that any military wife should worry about getting deported. This is currently my situation. How can I support my soldier, when I worry about being deported? How can my soldier perform his duties as a soldier, when he worries about my safety? It's not
    fair. My son and I serve this country as well.
  2. Roger Algase's Avatar
    Helen S., there is something terribly, terribly wrong with our whole immigration system, and our politicians are utterly lacking in the courage to change it. If the people who are defending our country cannot rest assured that their immediate family members are safe from deportation, then who can?

    The same is true of the shocking Immigration "Court" system detailed in the Nation article cited by Matthew Kolkien in what, in accordance with ID's incomprehensible policy, was mistakenly called his article, but should properly have been called his news item in today's ID issue.

    I am sorry for misspelling Matthew Kolken's name in my last comment.
