    I'm not surprise, about President Obama aunt, she was always going to get asylum. This system is so screw up and double standard. Mothers came to this country with their young children, and after waiting for several years in line to obtain a green card, are being told that their children age out, and cannot obtain the benefits. And these children are left out in the cold, with no hope, because immigration refused to follow the Child Status Protection Act, by allowing these children parents to retain their priority date when they refilled for them, but this woman because she has the President in her corner, she can disobey a deportation order,and live in government funding houses, and still get a green card. Editor something is not right with this picture, the law only applies to certain people, this is a very wicked act. What about the children that have their whole life ahead of them, they did not disobey any law or live off the government, instead their parents are hard woking people that came to this country and abiding by every law, which includes paying taxes and supporting their family. This system is very bias, these children may not have a nephew in the white house to fight for them, but they have a God who is in total control of us all and he has the last say.

    Does Tuesday's election mean anything for immigration? Perhaps not, because it does not seem to have been even mentioned as an issue in any of the campaigns. (Obviously, Arizona is an exception, where the choice is between an overt bigot who wrote a book saying that all Hispanics, including legal immigrants and US citizens, are a danger to America, and an unprincipled flip-flop artist who has thrown his previous principled stand on immigration reform into the Rio Grande.)

    But the Tea Party candidate's win in Kentucky and the Democratic primary loss in Pennsylvania by former moderate Republican (an oxymoron) Arten Spector and the poor showing by that Republican in Democratic sheep's clothing, Blanche Lincoln, (both of whom were supported by President Obama), may show that "centrism", which has never been a real political ideology, but only a euphemism for corrupt, business as usual Washington deal-making, is on the way out.

    Whether this is good for immigration or not is an open question. As many people have been pointing out, sentiment among leaders in both parties has moved far to the right since the last attempt at reform in 2007. The Obama/Napolitano administration is now pursuing the same "enforcement-only" agenda that only extremists in the far Republican right (is there any other Republican wing?) were advocating three years ago. Even Senator Schumer seems to be buying into this, with his call for a national ID card and other enforcement-only measures in the guise of reform.

    This could all mean that only the rise of a real left in this country will bring about genuine immigration reform, which, like the civil rights movement and the anti-Vietnam war protests of the 1960's involves a profound moral and human rights issue. Fortunately, the overtly racist, quasi-fascist Arizona WSIP ("Wo sind Ihre Papiere?") law, and its Orwellian companion, the ban against teaching children about their own heritage and large parts of America's (or even the world's) history, including subjects such as the Holocaust, Chinese exclusion laws, Japanese-American internment, and Native American studies, appear to be bringing this into focus.

    The rise in the number of boycotts, peaceful demonstrations and outspoken criticism of Arizona's attempt at imposing an apartheid-style racial pass system under the guise of "enforcing" federal immigration policies (which Arizona is in fact trying to subvert) even from normally conservative spokespersons such as Laura Bush, may be the beginning of a new era for immigration in America, one based on humanity instead of hate. At least people of good will in every corner of this great nation of immigrants, people who still believe in equality of opportunity regardless of race, color, national origin or first language, can hope so.
