    You are absolutely correct. Immigration reform is great campaign fodder. It's time to scrutinize all candidates. NO passes for those who publicly state support for reform. The experience with President Obama should be a lesson for us all.

    Thank you for your comments.

    It's unrealistic to blame President Obama for failing to make immigration reform happen. That's not something that one man can do, even if he is the President of the United States. In any case, the real key to immigration reform is finding a way to meet the political needs of both parties, something I don't see anyone trying to do.

    It is realistic to question the approach taken by the Obama administration legal team regarding their mediocre so-called "Executive Actions" on immigration - which were NOT Executive Orders as portrayed by mainstream media and NOT properly clarified by immigration advocates.

    In legal terms the United States of America is currently in a State of War: Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF - http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/PLAW-107publ40/pdf/PLAW-107publ40.pdf).
    DURING TIMES OF WAR AND UNDER THE GROUNDS OF NATIONAL SECURITY, THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH IS GRANTED EXTRAORDINARY POWERS TO GOVERN BY DECREE IF NECESSARY; THEREFORE, THE GOVERNMENT COULD HAVE ISSUED EXECUTIVE ORDERS PERTAINING TO IMMIGRATION UNDER SUCH CIRCUMSTANCES AND THOSE ACTIONS IN MOST INSTANCES CANNOT BE REVIEWED BY THE COURTS.

    A genuine statesman would have proceeded in that direction.

    As always, it is imperative to reiterate that willful ignorance displayed by members of Congress, State officials and the political class while dealing with the immigration issue is an irrefutable evidence of constituents? stupidity (specifically those who are fervidly opposed to any sort of temporary relief granted by the Executive Branch to certain unlawfully present immigrants) and excoriating the current administration on immigration is not going to elevate their brutish status.

    "Article"???? of Sheila Danzig

    Editor. I'm all for capitalism, advertising, marketing, and the American way of life. But, this is not an article; it is an advertisement. Many of the articles and blogs you run have some self-serving verbiage, but this is okay: at least they almost inevitably provide (or attempt to provide) meaningful and enlightening content.

    ILW loses credibility in our community by failing to screen its 'articles' more carefully. Unless you engage in a mea culpa, at least I will be a tad more reluctant to click on future would-be articles and blogs.

    It is fine to talk about meeting the political needs of both parties on immigration, as Nolan does, but how does one do this in practice when the "political needs" of one of those two parties (or at least a substantial segment of its elected representatives) are based on demonizing and stirring up prejudice against Hispanics and other immigrants of color in order to cater to white voters in certain sections of the country?

    The answer to the question referred to in today's article and to Roger's objection to my previous comment can be found in the following article, which explains the origin of the Republicans' enforcement first demand, What is IRCA, and What Does It Have To Do with Comprehensive Immigration Reform? (Feb. 8, 2013), http://www.lexisnexis.com/legalnewsroom/immigration/b/immigration-law-blog/archive/2013/02/08/what-is-irca-and-what-does-it-have-to-do-with-comprehensive-immigration-reform.aspx
