Comment: CIR Flip Flop

Los Angeles Chronicle
writes "Last week at a meeting with immigration reform advocates,
Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Michael Steele
promised a public statement in support of comprehensive
immigration reform and pledged to work hard to get additional
Senate Republicans to join Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) in
advancing bi-partisan immigration reform legislation with Senator
Charles Schumer (D-NY)."

    With regard to ID's comment concerning a presumed Republican "CIR Flip Flop", immigrants might be better off if Michael Steele came out against immigration reform. Otherwise, the public might think that any Republican effort to support reform will be launched in a California nightclub.
  2. Honza Prchal's Avatar
    Rifqa Barry's case calls to mind the Elian Gonzales custody case. It seems to be going better without federal intervention. Perhaps there's a lesson there for all of us?

    As for the Washington post book review of bi-lingual education, if bi-lingual education, at least as practiced in dysfunctional California, had not been harmful to immigrant children, one suspects their parents would not have voted so heavily to move away from it. I am sure it can be done well (and my fears when my own daughter was put into such a program in Alabama were certainly exaggerated based on my own California experiences). I am sure many fears are often misplaced, as mine were, but many hopes for bi-lingual education are similarly misplaced. Specifically the half and half model cited by the author as the ideal is NOT the model used in most bi-lingual programs - in fact, I have heard from people who studied that way in the first Czechoslovak Republic and in the Habsburg Empire and nowhere else, certainly not in US schools. The closer of the article is undoubtedly correct in asserting "These findings undeniably invite additional controlled studies. Nonetheless, they are a necessary starting point for lawmakers reconsidering the No Child Left Behind policy.", but forcing truly bi-lingual education instead of the lousy foreign language instruction is far preferable to the disastrously separate and unequal tracks formerly common on the West Coast. I am not sure "teacher qualification standards" crafted by groups like the NEA would allow us to hire enough truly fluent foreign language speakers as teachers. Not many fluently bi-lingual people are willing to waste their lives getting a meaningless teaching degree.

    I would be willing to consider CIR regardless of where the Republicans launch it, and despite Steele's recent difficulties I give him props for sitting down and talking about it, he could have ignored the group who did the sit-in.

    I also think its instructive to consider the visit as reported as well. The Republicans are deeply divided on Immigration Reform, the base thinks a realistic legalization program to tax those benefiting from our economy but the leadership continues to sacrifice candidates on the alter of Nativism.
