Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

February 26, 2014

PHOENIX, AZ - Erika Andiola, an undocumented youth and national immigration activist, has been arrested after she refused to move when Phoenix Police sought to disband families who were in a hunger strike. The families have been fasting for over a week were on a hunger strike to call on immigration authorities to release their loved ones.

More than 1,100 people are deported every day, and President Obama nears a grim two million deportations. About 41 percent of those deported were parents and workers with no prior criminal record. This unabated and arbitrary enforcement is creating a crisis of family separation, with millions of American citizens in mixed-status families being affected. Dreamers, like Erika Andiola, are fighting back and now risking arrest.

    Why would anyone think enforcement of a law is "grim"? Unless they do not think that law is legitimate. Judging by their apparent outrage, it seems like a lot of immigration attorneys do not think the law they work with should be enforced, that aliens should simply be allowed to violate it with impunity. Actually, non-enforcement never seems to be enough--legalization is constantly demanded. In other words, they wish the law should never have existed in the first place.
