  1. Roger Algase, Attorney at Law's Avatar
    I have read the text of President Obama's immigration speech. It is a great speech. And the fact that it was made at all is great. If only Obama's actions could match his soaring rhetoric. But the reality is that simply blaming the Republicans for not supporting immigration reform will solve nothing. There are also plenty of Democrats who are too scared to stand up for humane and sensible immigration laws.

    The big point, which Obama mentioned only in passing, is that there is a great deal that his administration can do to make the system work more equitably on both the illegal and legal immigration sides. This means getting away from the rigid "enforcement only" mentality and "culture of no" that are making the problem worse.

    Instead of quoting Emma Lazarus, President Obama needs to begin by firing Janet Napolitano and bringing about the prompt return of biased USCIS officials such as Donald Neufeld to private life. Everyone agrees with the President that the immigration system must change. But change must begin with a new way of thinking in the White House.
  2. Roger Algase, Attorney at Law's Avatar
    To add a couple of thoughts to my previous comment, every immigration lawyer knows quite well that the federal government agencies primarily responsible for immigration, including the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Labor and the Department of State, have enormous regulatory power under existing law, not to mention wide discretion given to different immigration offices and immigration officials to interpret these regulations.

    It is safe to say that USCIS officials such as Donald Neufeld probably make more immigration "law" in their memos to the field than Congress does when it passes amendments to the INA. The same is true on the enforcement side. Existing law gives the Department of Homeland Security a great deal of discretion in exercising what used to be considered the drastic remedy of deportation (at least in a famous and often quoted early 20th Century Supreme Court opinion by Justice Louis Brandeis).

    But both USCIS's application of the laws granting immigration benefits and ICE's enforcement policies are largely driven by the political considerations of the day. These political considerations, as everyone knows, are now in favor of making immigrants, especially from Latin America and Asia, scapegoats for all of America's problems, and making it harder and harder to get through the gates to this country. Appeasing anti-immigrant sentiment is now the biggest priority of all with regard to both legal and illegal immigration issues. This theme obviously ran through much of the president's speech.

    Obama was, of course, justified in criticizing the Arizona immigration law and warning against the fragmentation of immigration policy among many different state and local governments. But this argument needs to be made in federal court urgently, not just in a television speech. Where is the administration's much anticipated but still not yet filed lawsuit against Arizona's "Where are your papers" ("Wo sind Ihre Papiere")law?
