Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

A Child's Plea: Obama's Deportation Enforcement Has Left Scars in my Life Forever

Rating: 13 votes, 4.69 average.
From Presente.org:

The story of the Obama Legacy on immigration is being defined by the President's own actions. It will be remembered in policy briefs and in law books. But more than anything, it will live most vividly in the hearts, minds and stories of millions of men, women and, especially, the children of the Obama era.

With only two years left in his Administration, President Obama owns an immigration legacy that remains an extraordinarily tragic one: mass deportations, shattered families, militarized communities and much more. In the hopes of raising the kind of awareness that alters not just legacies but destinies, the Obama Legacy project will tell the the human and factual story of the President's immigration record, especially as it impacts Latino immigrants and their communities.

With so much at stake, we call for a shift in trajectory, a new beginning. We call for an end to all deportations, as a critical first step. And we look forward to joining others in making the Obama Legacy one of peace and prosperity for all 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the United States.

    What about the law? I suspect the presumptuousness of these demands doesn't go over well with most Americans. Don't we have the right to control and limit who enters and resides within our borders? I guess not according to this group. But why? Is Presente.org purely opposed to borders ideologically? I can at least respect that as an opinion even if I think it's terrible policy. Nah, it's an ethnic chauvinism thing and about who's doing the violating--which just happens to mostly be their ethnic group. So it's not a principled stand, but purely self-interest and special treatment which does not deserve respect. Presente.org essentially calls anyone who doesn't condone violation of immigration law anti-Latino. Their position is essentially that violation of immigration law should be condoned, rewarded, etc. so long as it's us doing the violating. That is pretty ridiculous and actually offensive when you think about it. Obviously these purely self-interested type of organizations should not be listened to when immigration policy is considered by the government but will always have a seat at the table with today's Democrats.

    We call for an end to all deportations, as a critical first step.
    The next step being citizenship and does anyone really think after mass legalization Presente.org is going to be anything other than categorically against enforcement? Actually, they probably would be the biggest enforcement hawks out there if just "their people" were allowed unlimited immigration. But short of that, it's a safe bet they will always be open borders regardless of what the law says.
