  1. Roger Algase, Attorney at Law's Avatar
    I read the article referred to in today's tweet about the attempt to deport a Harvard student who was brought here illegally as a child and has never been back to or had any connection with his native Mexico since. There were two comments to that article. Both were screaming for his deportation.

    I have also recently been reading about the Spanish Inquisition. These were laws then, too, and "illegals" who persisted in violating them. These illegals were known as heretics. Heresy was not only against the law, but it was as unpopular among most of the general public (at least those who did not happen to belong to the Muslim, Jewish or Converso persuasion) as illegal immigration is now.

    There was also a clear legal punishment for heresy back then, in a proceeding known as an auto da fe (act of faith). Carrying out this punishment had wide popular support. Very possibly, the inquisitors might have asked their victims "what part of 'heretic' don't you understand?" before roasting them alive.

    As it happens, these particular ceremonies took place not only in Europe, but in colonies such as Mexico. Even as 21st Century Americans try to purge Arizona and other states of the presence of Hispanic immigration heretics, our country may have absorbed more medieval Latino ways of thinking, and behaving, about law enforcement than most of us would care to admit.
  2. Roger Algase, Attorney at Law's Avatar
    Since I have been writing so much about what is wrong with the immigration system, I would like to suggest a few ideas to improve it. First, attempts to legalize bigotry or make it worse should be stopped in their tracks. A good way to do this would be for the federal government to grant automatic TPS to anyone stopped or arrested by the Arizona police for immigration related reasons. End of the new Arizona law - period. Immigration enforcement will stay with the federal government, where it belongs.

    This doesn't necessarily mean that INA Section 287(g) would have to be abolished. But whatever local enforcement there is must stay firmly under federal control. This is the most serious flaw in the Arizona hate law - it tries to supersede federal power over immigration.

    But Section 287(g), and all federal immigration enforcement, should be carefully and strictly redirected to going after the bad guys - the terrorists, killers and the drug cartels. Aren't there enough of them around to merit our attention? Can we as a nation really afford to waste our our resources going after people who work hard, pay taxes, educate their children and contribute to our economy but happen to be here with Latino-looking features and skin color but without authorization?

    Next, our law should and must reinstate the old idea of "equities", i.e. ties with the US, in deciding whether or not to deport someone. No more mandatory deportation. Finally, we need to make many more legal visas available, especially to our closest neighbors in Latin America, but also to many more qualified people from Asia and Africa. The job of ending whites only immigration policies only began in 1965. Now is the time to finish it.
