Comment: Happy New Year - The ILW.COM team wishes you a joyous and prosperous 2012. We look forward to seeing what 2012 has in store for all of us. With an upcoming Presidential election, we are eager to see what Democrats and Republicans will do to attract the immigrant vote. Will our deporter-in-chief continue with his strategy of deporting innocent hard-working immigrants and separating families? Will he have a change of attitude and fulfill the presidential campaign promises he made to immigrants? Will there be more SB1070 copycats? We look forward to continue bringing you the latest news and points of view in immigration. Please let us know your expectations on immigration developments for 2012 at
