  • Oct 28 - Hillary and the Dreamers

    Comment: Hillary and the Dreamers
    While the midterm election is still a week away, there are already clear indications that the 2016 presidential campaign has quietly begun. In a recent campaign rally for North Carolina Senator Kay Hagan, a local group of undocumented immigrant youths voiced their disapproval of the Hagan's immigration-related record. But the protest was not directed entirely toward the Senator (who was one of five Senate Democrats to vote against the Dream Act). Hillary Clinton, who was featured at the event, was challenged directly as to her stand on immigration. According to the New York Times

    [One protester] held a sign that read, "Hillary, do you stand with our immigrant families?" and shouted that his mother lives in constant fear of deportation. "I have to say that I understand immigration is an important issue, and we appreciate that," Mrs. Clinton said. "We thank you for your advocacy."
    ...
    Behind the public confrontations is a quieter but concerted effort by a critical bloc of young Latinos to urge others like them not to automatically support Mrs. Clinton in an increasingly likely 2016 presidential campaign. "If you're going to pick politics over our families, you should know that you can't take this constituency for granted," said Cristina Jimenez, managing director of United We Dream, the largest national network of young undocumented immigrants.

    Judging by the past, pre-election promises are infamously empty. But it is never too late to demand higher credibility in US politics. Share your thoughts by writing to editor@ilw.com.
