1. Comment: Democrats Versus Immigrants - We commend our readers'
attention to a fascinating opinion piece today in
titled "Latino Dems should rethink loyalty".
Some quotes from the article to whet the appetite:
"Today, of the 10 most economically "stressed" counties, seven
are majority or heavily Latino... You have all these job losses
in Latino districts represented by Latino legislators who don't
realize what they are doing to their own people... Despite []
economic logic, Latino Democrats mindlessly follow liberal
Democrats such as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Rep. Henry
Waxman of California and Sen. John Kerry of Massachusetts, who
represent largely white, affluent white-collar constituencies on
issues such as cap and trade and federal regulation of greenhouse
gases. Whatever the intent, these policies are likely to further
decimate blue-collar employment in Latino districts... [The]
disjunction between interests and politics is particularly
evident in California, the state with the largest Latino
population. Latino Democrats have generally embraced the state's
draconian environmental and planning policies ... As Latinos
become a critical part of our emerging economy, they need to
develop a policy agenda that focuses less on old-style, machine
ethnic politics and more on the critical issue of upward mobility
... Latino voters might also consider avoiding the African-American
one-party model by embracing both growth-oriented Democrats and
enlightened Republicans. This is most likely to increase their
political leverage, while creating a politics that supports their
most fundamental interests."

    The Politico article that you are passing around seems like it is a shill for some special corporate interest like perhaps the Koch Brothers or the American Petroleum Institute.

    The argument is about as weak as it gets. Poor Latino communities are being hurt by environmental regulation, so let's dump environmental regulation and then we'll have more jobs. Now that's building a sustainable future isn't it? But the question is whether that's even empirically correct. I doubt the article provides that kind of evidence. It's just an assumption, and most likely entirely false.

    I'd like to see a more critical appraisal on your part before sending around this kind of stuff.

    I'd like to thank you for this entry. I'm an georgia immigration attorney and this is very useful information for me.

    William is absolutely right. Just as anti-immigrant groups like FAIR have been trying to use fake environmental arguments (overpopulation, destruction of natural resources, etc.), as a pretext for their goal of reducing or cutting off immigration, now it looks as if the oil companies and other big polluters are using phony concern for the interests of the Latino community as an excuse for business as usual on climate change.

    If we lose our planet through climate change, as some reputable scientists are warning could happen within only a few centuries, that will certainly solve our immigration problem - no more immigrants, and no one left to deport them, either.

    Since when did your newsletter get hijacked by the republican party? you aint foolin anybody. this is the only newsletter that i actually read because you maintained a neutral view. now you are saying that republicans are better? i guess so if you support seccesion of the states and mass enforcement and family separations with hope for reform dead. think twice before you send out partisan stuff.
  5. John Frecker's Avatar
    Mr. Algase apparently believes that the destruction of the world due to overpopulation is inevitable. If we continue on our present course it's inevitable, but it doesn't have to be that way. To change our present course and to address our population problems would take courage, and that may be why Mr. Algase may eventually turn out to be correct.
  6. Roger Algase's Avatar
    John Frecker obviously did not read my previous comment very carefully. I said clearly that overpopulation was a fake environmental argument. The real danger to the future of this planet, according to the overwhelming majority of reputable scientists, lies in carbon emissions from fossil fuels. This is an issue of oil company and industrial manufacturing greed and irresponsibility, not population levels and even less so of immigration.

    My reference to immigration was simply to point out that if there are no people left on this planet, then no one will not have to worry about immigration policy any more. Some people want to make immigrants scapegoats for every problem faced by humanity, including climate change. They will have to look elsewhere than in my comments for support.
