Bloggings: The Republicans move ahead with plans to impose their rich white males only agenda on America. What will the future of immigration be if the party of bigots and billionaires wins in November? By Roger Algase

Rate this Entry

Everywhere, the signs are becoming clearer than ever that the Republicans cannot wait to impose their elitist, sexist and racist agenda on America. According to a report in the Washington Post, House Republicans are set to introduce a tax "reform" bill that will shift more of the tax burden away from the rich and on to the middle class and the poor. Meanwhile, Willard ("Mitt") Romney promises to defund Planned Parenthood the day he takes office as president.


On the same day, Romney has also announced, he will order the Justice Department to drop its challenges to the anti-immigrant hate laws that have been passed in Alabama, Arizona and other states. There can be little doubt that Kris Kobach, the author of most of these laws and strong advocate of the voter ID laws that many states have adopted in order to disenfranchise minorities, the less well off and students, would have a great deal of influence in a Romney administration. Could he become our next Attorney General? 


Could an open enemy of immigration such as Texas Republican Representative Lamar Smith or Iowa Republican Senator Charles Grassley be the next Director of the Department of Homeland Security? With every passing day, the Republican candidates, and the billionaires who are supporting them with unlimited Super-Pac money that Obama and the Democrats have no hope of matching, are making it even more clear what type of America they intend to bring about if they win the White House and Congress in November.


It is not an America that will have very much room for immigrants. It is all too easy to forget what kind of immigration bill the Republicans passed when they controlled the House of Representatives in 2005. That bill, H.R. 3447, turned out to have been a model for the state laws which are now causing so much havoc in minority communities. Who can doubt that one like it, or even worse, will become the law of the land if the Republicans' unlimited billionaire money enables them to buy this fall's election?

    The blatantly obscene post on this site, dated March 20 at 3:12 pm, by an evidently disturbed individual, should be deleted.

    A Republican win will have zero impact on the current state of affairs, as the Obama administration is the worst in history when it comes to immigration reform and immigrant rights.

    I would rather vote for a rock than reward this President with my vote, as he IS the problem.

    I will be voting for a third party candidate this November (again), and anyone who cares about immigrant rights should do the same.

    I completely understand Matt's feelings about Obama and I was initially tempted to vote for a third party too. In New York state, there is no shortage of them. The reason I have changed my mind is that the Republicans are constantly going to greater and greater extremes to show their hatred for immigrants and all brown people, and to transform it into law.

    If Romney wins this fall (and no other Republican has a decent chance of being nominated)then soon every state will have its own immigration law, most of them more punitive and draconian than the last.

    If the Republicans also take the Senate and hold onto the House, then we will definitely have an updated version of H.R. 3447 from 2005 as the law of the land. As immigration lawyers, how will we advise our clients then? More to the point, well we be able to advise our clients at all without risking going to prison?

    Alabama's current immigration law and H.R. 3447 make this a legitimate question. Before voting for a third party, which is the same as voting to hand the White House over to a Republican right wing immigrant-hating radical, we should be sure that we have an answer to this question we can live with.

    I respectfully disagree Roger. Voting for this President sends the message that you can trample on the rights of immigrants with impunity.

    Here is a sampling of what has come out of this President's administration in the last month alone:

    Report: Obama Administration Fails to Clean-Up Deeply Flawed Immigration Detention System. http://bit.ly/Herd5L

    UN Report: Obama Administration Allegedly Tortured 16 gay and transgender Immigrants Held in Immigration Detention. http://bit.ly/GEspFa

    Justice Department Lawyers Mislead Supreme Court to the Detriment of immigrants. http://bit.ly/y9nKll

    Obama Administration Seeking to Destroy Another Gay Couple Through Deportation. http://bit.ly/GGMIBo

    Only 1% of all Reviewed Deportation Cases Have Received a Favorable Exercise of Prosecutorial Discretion. http://bit.ly/x6iE2d

    Obama Administration Deporting Immigrants Despite Court Orders Blocking Deportations. http://bit.ly/yp46oa

    Obama Administration Deported 46,000 Parents of United States Citizens in First-Half of 2011. http://bit.ly/zfBCcj

    Point being, the argument that you are voting for the lesser of two evils enables this President to continue his attack on the most powerless among us. You can't permit it. Not if you care about human rights.

    The only way either political party will acknowledge the need for humane and just immigration reform is if they lose the immigration reform vote.

    Given the Obama Administration's record of raping, torturing, and abusing immigrants, coupled with the destruction of more families than any President in history it is insanity to reward him with our vote.

    No thank you. I would rather have a Republican win the White House, and reload for 2016.

    Matt's view is powerful and well-argued. it is almost convincing. Obama's record on immigration was a disgrace, as sell out, a betrayal, an atrocity. But let's pause for a minute. Remember how bad George W. Bush was on immigration?

    The massive workplace raids? The attorney general who proclaimed that people in deportation proceeding had no right to counsel? The legal harassment of minority voter registration organizations? Special registration for immigrants from Muslim countries after 9/11? Signing the "Real ID Act"?

    Then, things seemed about as bad as they could get at the federal level for immigration and minorities in general. Now, many of us immigration supporters look back on the Bush era as almost a golden age for immigration. Do we, one day soon, want to have to look back on the terrible era of Barack Obama as another immigration golden age?

    If so, let's put Willard Romney or one of his lunatic opponents in the White House. Let the Republicans make Kris Kobach attorney general and Lamar Smith DOS director. Let them win both houses of Congress and pass another, but even worse, H.R. 3447. Then we can have a nice talk about golden ages of immigration.

    I withdraw my previous "correction". I really meant: "a sell-out, a betrayal" in the first paragraph of my latest comment.
  11. Roger Algase's Avatar
    One more correction: I meant "DHS director", not "DOS director", in my latest comment.

    Roger,

    President Obama's record on immigration is more than a disgrace. It is criminal.

    His administration should be charged with violations of articles 7 and 12 of the United Nations Convention against Torture.

    The rape, torture, and abuse of immigrants in immigration detention is President Obama's Abu Ghraib, only it is far worse because it continues to happen on U.S. soil. We aren't talking about something in the past. It is happening right here, right now, on the Deporter in Chief's watch.

    If there ever were an impeachable offense this is it. His administration has known about the torture and abusive conditions in immigration detention since 2009. He has done nothing but turn his back on the problem.

    You go ahead and vote for the guy with the D after his name.

    I'll be voting my conscience.
