  • July 16 - O'Malley Outbids Obama

    Comment: O'Malley Outbids Obama
    CBS News reports that Democratic Presidential Candidate Former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley has unveiled a proposal to fix the broken and inhumane immigration system and pledged to begin implementing it on his first day of office.

    Here are the highlights of the proposal:

    • Use bold executive action to provide immediate relief to immigrants waiting for CIR.
    • Expand acess to waivers to the three or ten year bar
    • Use detention only as a last resort
    • Restore due process safeguards and basic fairness to immigration enforcement
    • Disentangle local law enforcement from immigration enforcement
    • Overhaul legal US immigration system by reducing employment barriers for foreign professionals, promoting family unity and restoring judicial discretion.

    We urge Democratic Presidential candidates to fully exploit the anti-immigrantionist rhetoric of Donald Trump as a foil to lay out their own vision of 21st century immigration policy-and, if elected, follow through with it.
