Latin@: January 2011 Archives
In a Racewire doubleheader, it looks like neither Fox News nor President Obama can make up their minds on immigration and the growing U.S. Latin@ population.
Fox News wants Latin@s to watch one of its channels, and white nativists to watch the other.
Obama wants to be both Deporter in Chief and champion of immigrants.
If Obama doesn't become a true champion of immigrant communities and continues to deport record numbers of immigrants, he will lose in 2012. At this point, though, it's hard to see how the next president could be worse than this one for immigrants in the U.S. Getting him out of office would be a step forward, not a step back.
