  1. Roger Algase, Attorney at Law's Avatar
    As an article about Arizona Senator Kyl mentioned in one the tweets in the June 22 ID observes, the Republicans are torn by their desire to use immigration racial politics in order to gain white votes without alienating Hispanic voters even further. At the same time, the Democrats are afraid pf losing white votes if they stand up for their Latino constituents, whose votes were crucial to electing President Obama.

    The Republicans, unfortunately, have a long and sorry history of using racial politics in order to gain votes; the only reason that so much of the South is solidly Republican today is because of Richard Nixon's anti-black "Southern Strategy" of exploiting the white backlash against the reforms of the civil rights era.

    The difference between then and now is that President Lyndon Johnson believed in attaining justice for African-Americans, and was willing to pay the price of losing the South for the Democrats for at least a generation. It has turned out to be longer than that. But under the weak, if not cynical, leadership of the Obama administration, the Democrats have abandoned any kind of principled stand in favor of protecting brown skinned immigrants from racism and prejudice, and are just pandering for votes wherever they may be found on both sides of the issue. This is the only explanation for the administration's hesitation in filing a lawsuit against the Arizona anti-immigrant hate law.

    Waiting for some real action by this administration in support of immigrant rights, as opposed to a few timid moves around the edges from time to time, is like waiting for Godot. Now we know why Godot never showed up - he probably couldn't get a visa.

    American citizens in Latino, Asian and other non-white communities should form their own party, one strongly committed to immigrant rights. If the Tea Party movement, which is at bottom little more than a Fox News inspired front for opposing any attempt to rein in the excesses of large predatory corporations, can do so much to shake up the Republicans, why can't a Tequila party do the some for the Democrats?

    Something big is needed in order to change the politics of contempt, cowardice and cynicism on immigration and race which is disfiguring American politics and may be putting the very foundations of our democracy at risk.

    Typographical correction - I meant: "do the same for the Democrats?", not "do the some".
  3. Roger Algase, Attorney at Law's Avatar
    I did not mean to imply in my previous comment that a new party supporting immigrant rights should limit its membership to minority Americans only. Nor should immigration necessarily be its only issue. There must be tens of millions of American voters of all ethnic and demographic varieties who are outraged by the Obama administration's timidity, weakness and indecisiveness in failing to stand up against the exploitation of racial hatred against non-white immigrants for political purposes, as well as the exploitation of ordinary Americans to boost the profits of the corporate elite.

    The latter, of course, is evidenced most recently by the BP oil spill catastrophe, which, as we are learning day by day as more of the details come out, appears to have been the direct result of deliberate decisions by the company to cut corners on safety while compliant government regulators looked the other way. If only the Obama administration had shown as much interest in keeping brown oil slicks out of the country as it has in keeping out brown immigrants.

    Dear Editor:

    As the Federal Court continues to deliberate on the validity of Proposition 8, I hope more people in San Diego will recognize that our constitution guarantees protection to ALL - not just some - Americans.

    As a Unitarian Universalist, I know it is important that marriage equality be decided based on law, not religion.

    My faith tradition teaches us to uphold the values of freedom and respect the dignity of our fellow human beings.

    As a lay leader I want to be able to treat my gay and straight congregation members equally.

    As a teacher, I want my students to be able to marry the person they love -- the gay and the straight ones alike.

    My marriage has been strengthened -- not threatened -- by the example of the gay and lesbian couples in my life.

    I hope the court recognizes the constitutional importance of those freedoms and rules to dissolve Prop 8.

    Given recent election results, where the GOP has been nominating lots of "brown" candidates, just not those with opinions Mr. Algase seems to prefer and Democrats have moved backwards from their last Presidential contest and dumped good minority candidates overboard, perhaps a radical rethink of what the two parties are "really after" is in order? Mr. Algase's proposal - a Tequila Party seems odd to me, but I am am as Republican as he is Democrat, so perhaps it would surprise me as much as the Tea Party's backing for gay and "brown" candidates was to him.
    If nothing else, it might actually create a statesmanlike constituency for actually resolving the myriad problems in our dysfunctional immigration system, where illegal immigration seems preferable to legal entry for vast numbers of people.
