11/17: Is Obamaís Immigration Plan Too Modest? Proposals Cover Less Than Half of Nationís Undocumented

By The Democracy Now!

Obamaís executive actions will not provide any formal, lasting immigration status, but many immigrants will receive work permits, which will give them Social Security numbers and allow them to work legally under their own names. Another key component could prevent the deportation of parents whose children are U.S. citizens....

The Green Monster - how the border patrol -got out of control

By Garrett M. Graff - Political

Gil Kerlikowske was hoping to make it through at least his first week on the job without being awakened in the middle of the night. President Barack Obamaís new head of Customs and Border Protection, Kerlikowske could have used a week of quiet as he began to figure out the nationís largest law enforcement agency, with its 46,000 gun-carrying Customs officers and Border Patrol agents and massive $12.4 billion annual budget....

9/28: Asylum seekers abused in German shelter by security contractors

10/2: Immigration Reform, Activism, and Moral Certainty

By Duane Campbell - Talking Union

Attacking allies does not move immigration reform forward. And, an argument from a position of moral correctness does not change policy. We need to be on the morally correct side but that is not enough to change policy because political and economic power largely controls this country. We have a political oligarchy- our government is dominated by corporations. We need to understand neoliberal capitalism, then, work to change it....

Is Obama's Immigration Plan Too Modest? Proposals Cover Less Than Half of Nation's Undocumented

Democracy Now! Co-Host JUAN GONZÁLEZ: Well, the president clearly made the—he made the statement right after the election, that this was the direction he was going to go to. But what happened on Friday was that it's becoming clearer that it's going to happen sooner rather than later, as we head to the end of the year. But the key thing, I think, that's being missed is that the numbers that are being bandied about, between 3.7 and 5.3 million undocumented, that number includes the 1.2 million young people that are already under a protected status, or deferred deportation, under DACA. So it's really a much more modest number that we're talking about. And the difference is, it's still a question of what plan President Obama takes, whether he will require the parents of U.S. citizen children to have been here at least 10 years or five years, which would affect the final number, and whether he will include the parents of the DACA young people who have already received a deferred deportation situation. And, of course, this is all temporary, because Congress can change it at any moment. So, I think it's actually a pretty modest proposal whichever way President Obama goes, because even at the most expansive plan, which would be about 5.3 million people, that's still less than half of the undocumented that are in the country currently..

Obama executive action on immigration only decent thing to do

Richard Cohen - Southern Poverty Law Center

By halting the deportation of millions of undocumented immigrants, President Barack Obama has done the only decent, humane thing he could do

It makes no sense for the administration to continue deporting immigrants in record numbers given the fact that Congress is debating legislation that could provide them with a path to citizenship. Enough hard-working families have already been harmed.

The president’s action is quite limited. It does not create a path to citizenship. It does not entitle undocumented immigrants to receive public benefits like food stamps. It simply halts deportations for those who meet certain criteria, giving them lawful presence in the United States – but only for the time being. The rug could be pulled out from under them at any time by this or any future president.

In short, President Obama has simply given a small measure of security to millions of immigrants who are now living in the shadows.

But we need to give them more. And for that, we need congressional action.
