U.S. Immigration Reform: July 2011 Archives

While I hold the Obama administration responsible for the increasing violence being done to migrant communities (exemplified by the last post I just wrote), it's important to be clear who our friends and enemies are. There is a good contingent of pro-migrant Democrats in Congress that have stood with our communities through these difficult times.

I just received a press release from the office of U.S. Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL-4) which I will paste below that lists some of the pro-migrant Democrats that are standing with us, and also point to a threat coming from the number two enemy of migrant communities, U.S. Rep Lamar Smith (R-TX-21). With everything that's happening it's tempting to ignore it, but I know for a fact that this is precisely the sort of bill that the Obama administration fears if they provide our community with any sort of administrative relief.
