  • July 15 - Lawyers Heckle WH Advisor

    Comment: Lawyers Heckle WH Advisor
    "About Time!" is the reaction of Ruber Navarrette when White House adviser Cecilia Munoz who is the director of the Domestic Policy Council was heckled and booed at a recent gathering of American Immigration Lawyers Association by a few immigration attorneys. Navarrette points out that, AILA, like many other immigration advocacy organizations, has been Democrat first and advocate second. As a result, it has carried water for the current administration even while the administration has wreacked havoc on America's immigrant communities. He lists a long list of administrations actions to the effect.

    It has broken Barack Obama's promise to make immigration reform a top priority, deported more than 2 million people, separated hundreds of thousands of families, spread misinformation about who was being removed, set a yearly quota of 400,000 deportations, used local police to enforce federal immigration law in order to meet that goal, denied that Obama had the executive authority to stop deportations only to reverse course and discover the authority when campaigning for re-election, detained women and children indefinitely without giving them access to counsel, sent Central American refugees home to possible death sentences without due process, and politicized the immigration issue in ways that help Democrats and hurt Republicans so that now no one in Congress will go near it.
    Ms. Munoz has been a major player in this debacle of administration's immigration policy and the chief spin doctor of propoganda about it to the Latino community. Navarrette notes that overall reception to Ms. Munoz was positive and supportive, and the protesters were few. We encourage more robust and vocal criticism of the administrations record on immigration from immigration attorneys, who are palpably aware of the high price their clients have had to pay due to it.
