    What is the real reason for the cynical "Realpolitik" in the Obama administration that lets all the president's men (and women) think that they can get away with having ICE pull mentally ill immigrants out of hospitals and lock them up in rural Texas, far away from their families, legal help and medicines, before dumping them in remote areas in the US or in the streets of their own countries where their chances of survival are slim, as the New York Times has reported?

    The same question can be asked about the scandal involving Haitian earthquake victims who were actually flown here for treatment by our own military only to be locked up for two months before their story appeared in the New York Times, and the related scandal involving the ICE memo ordering agents to set quotas for deporting immigrants who are not violent criminals and pose no danger to this country, a memo that was hastily withdrawn only after a Washington Post story.

    We can also ask the same question about the recent Donald Neufeld memos reversing long standing protection against deportation for people with properly and timely filed pending adjustment (green card) cases, and barring employment agencies from using the H-1B system without any legal basis.

    The political calculus in the White House can only be that immigrants, and their US citizen families and employers, have nowhere else to go. The Republicans, if they get back into power, will most likely try to pass a law criminalizing even the most trivial or technical immigration violations, as the Republican-controlled House of Representatives tried to do in 2005. Or, the Republicans might even try to put through a total moratorium on immigration.

    Moreover, the administration has the advantage of compliant media which, with the exception of these two courageous newspapers and a few others, refuses to give any publicity to these and many other outrages against minority immigrants that are taking place daily. The silence on TV toward the ongoing persecution of immigrants under President Obama and DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano, for example, whether on the "liberal" CNBC Maddow and Olbermann shows, or on "centrist" CNN, not to mention the unspeakable Fox News, is deafening

    But this kind of political cynicism on the part of the Obama administration contains the seeds of its own destruction. Voters belonging to Latino and other immigrant communities played a very important role in electing Obama as president. They also played a major role, by staying home, in electing Republican Scott Brown as Senator in Massachusetts. Many of these voters may decide to choose the Republican anti-immigrant devil that they know to the Obama administration's anti-immigrant devil that they are being lied to about.

    Roger Algase may have actually hit part of the Administration nail on the head. It has also opposed justice for black farmers, despite bipartisan support for compensating them in the last two Congresses. It is more "left" than concerned with the left's various constituencies, and that can be either a good or bad thing depending on how one looks at it. The end result is that groups that expected a favorable hearing are a lower priority than they expected since the Adminsitration is racing to build lasting "progressive" institutions along the European model - and a cynic like myself would say that all talk about social justice being mostly secondary to the drive to increase the power of government over people's daily lives.

    If the point is more the growth of constituencies and institutions, it matters less who gets ground up by those along the way. Despite being something of a Hamiltonian as opposed to Jeffersonian myself, I am beginning to more vividly than formerly appreciate the shortcomings of that governing strategy now that I represent people getting the short end of the stick.
