Bloggings on Immigration Law

by Roger Algase

Apr 20, 2011

Immigrants and the 2012 election

The patterns for the 2012 election are already beginning to emerge, and President Obama's immigration strategy remains clearer than ever - more draconian enforcement, more cynical pandering for votes among immigration opponents who think that Obama himself is an illegal alien. Obama is apparently convinced that immigrants have nowhere else to go and that he can do whatever he wants. These may be true, but it will not change without vigorous action by the people who are most affected. Where are the Latino, Asian and other minority communities? Why are they not out in the streets day after day demonstrating for immigrant rights all over America, just as union workers have been doing in Wisconsin for their bargaining rights? If voters in immigrant communities make their voices heard, Obama will have to listen. If they remain cowed and silent, nothing will be achieved.
