    More Mano Dura in El Salvador.

    The Salvadoran government just passed legislation promoting more of what has failed in the past: enhanced sentencing for gang members in the absence complimentary prevention, rehabilitation and social reinsertion programs. The new law doubles the maximum allowable sentence for 16-18 year olds convicted of homicide; a legislative act intended to cut down on the number of gang related killings. El Salvador has one of the highest murder rates in the world and clearly the government needs to act decisively to address this abysmal statistic, but in the years since Mano Dura (tough, or firm hand) was enacted the strategy has done nothing but worsen the problem the government purports to resolve. One of the many unintended negative consequences has been gangs' virtual declaration war on society, which resulted in escalating levels of persecution and increased migration to the U.S. An additional concern is that while enhancing sentencing, the law fails to address the investigative and judicial inadequacies that account for a closure rate on homicide cases that hovers between two and four percent!

    For those who read Spanish, a link to the article announcing the new law is found below.

    According to an AILA report, DHS Secretary Napolitano has been making the rounds in Congress trying to reassure long standing Republican anti-immigrant Congressmen like Lamar Smith that she is stepping up workplace enforcement efforts. The only important thing seems to be how many more fines are being imposed and investigations conducted. There is apparently no discussion about whether any serious violations of law are being unearthed or whether the stepped up "enforcement" activities serve any purpose other than increasing statistics to make it look as if the DHS is doing something, anything, to justify its immigration budget.

    This appears to be an example more of appeasement by the Obama administration of a Republican right wing anti-immigrant "enforcement only" agenda than an example of clear anti-immigrant ideology on the part of DHS. The same thing might be said for the recent Donald Neufeld memos attacking certain basic rights under the legal immigration system that had been long regarded as fundamental policy even if not enshrined in any law or regulation. It is very hard to believe that a president who was willing, as a candidate, to speak up boldly against scapegoating immigrants, has turned into an ideological restrictionist. It is more likely that this administration is taking the line of least resistance and expediency in passively going along with the agenda of some of the most bitter opponents of legal immigration, just as President Obama has been accused, not without justification, of lacking backbone in other policy areas as well.
  3. Honza Prchal's Avatar,0303-woods.shtm has some interesting insights into the ideological pretzels libertarians can get themselves into and the actual impact of immigration. Personally, I want more numbers of legal immigrants and a greater point of origin/cultural mix (more Africans, East Asians, South Asians, Antipodeans and South Americans [not enough Europeans really to add them to that mix these days], fewer relatively uneducated Mexicans) among those coming in in order to avoid the inevitable bi-cultural hostility and to speed assimilation, and I'd like more encouragement for entrepreneurs also in far greater, not lesser, numbers, but the argument is fascinating and provides a good underpinning for discussion of immigration that gets beyond the usual "racist" versus "lunatic who hates normal people" taunts that characterize most immigration discussion whenever one gets beyond strictly accounting numbers involved.

    What has been missing from immigration debates is a hard headed analysis of costs and benefits that include cultural costs, specifically the ethnic and racial "management" of too many of our bureaucracies and too much of our court system.

    If we do not stand together as brothers and sisters, our states, our country and our world will lose. It is time to speak up and be heard. Unless we stand for every human being having the right to live a life with dignity and purpose; then with our silence, we agree with those that would have decisions made out of fear and war mongering.
