I encourage all of you to look at the Diplopundit’s blog today at http://diplopundit.net/
As many of you might have guessed, I am “Mr. Requester”.
The idea that Jeff Gorsky responded to a FOIA request concerning himself would normally defy the imagination, but I have come to the conclusion that when AILA touches something or someone, an alternate reality takes over and they think they don’t have to answer to anyone.
An appeal has already been filed with both the State and Justice Departments.
Anything AILA touches means a lack of transparency.
With regard to Immigration Daily's April 23 editorial. no one does a better job than ID of explaining the powerful economic arguments for immigration reform. Important and valuable as this is, however, immigration law and policy are not determined only by economics. If they were, we would arguably have had immigration reform a long time ago.
Immigration is also a human rights issue, an issue of racial justice, an issue concerning the power of the privileged as opposed to the rights of the less advantaged in our country, and an issue affecting every aspect of society.
Immigration is also related to and an important part of the battle against discrimination all its forms - based on gender, sexual orientation and religion, not only ethnicity or nationality.
If we truly want to understand what is at stake in immigration, we must look at it from the broadest possible perspectives, something that Immigration Daily has also been taking the lead in doing. This is the only way we will ever be able to achieve reform.
