Comment: Letters On Impact Of Election -
Immigration Daily readers are always encouraged to comment on our content. Below are some submissions we received in reply to our request to readers to share their thoughts on what the impact of the election will be on immigration:
"I am afraid that we have even less reason to expect success with immigration reform now than we did before the election. Some have said that Romney lost because he failed to get sufficient support from the Hispanic community. Maybe, but I can think of a half dozen or so other reasons why people wouldn't want him to be elected. He went into the campaign with lots of baggage. He wasn't a strong candidate; yet he came close to beating Obama. Frankly, how important can the Hispanic vote be if the Republicans were able to keep their majority in the House? They are the bastion of all that is considered hostile to immigration reform. Yet there they still are. In control. Any immigration reform bill that manages to pass in the Senate will be dead on arrival in the House if it has the legalization program that is the sine qua non of immigration reform. I don't know what people expect Obama to do about that situation. If a bill has the legalization program the Dems want, the republicans will keep it from being considered. It will stay in the dead-on-arrival filing cabinet of the House immigration subcommittee chairman's office until the end of the Congress when it will officially be deceased. And if it doesn't have the legalization program....the Hispanic Caucus will oppose it, which eliminates leadership support in the House. Please let me know if I am overlooking a way that it could happen. And the Senate isn't receptive to immigration reform either. The Senate majority favors it, but they hold the majority by a relatively narrow margin. It won't be difficult for the Republicans to defeat immigration legislation...unless they let it through as a political gesture with assurance from the House Republicans that it won't be considered. I think that's how the McCain/Kennedy bill was passed. What's the answer? Find out what it will take to get the Republicans to cooperate and give it to them, even if it means that we don't get the legalization program we want or that we have to accept a large-scale, nationwide enforcement program to convince them that there won't be a new population of 11 or more million undocumented immigrants ten years from now (the IRCA deal --wipe the slate clean by legalizing the ones already here and enforcement to prevent new ones from coming to take their place)." -Nolan Rappaport
"Today, Tuesday, November 6, 2012, may be one of the most important days in the history of US immigration. It may determine whether white supremacist ideology, in the form of Mitt Romney's aging white male base, with its anti-minority state immigration laws and voter suppression tactics, will be in control of immigration policy for the next four years, or whether Barack Obama, that most imperfect of presidents, will be given the chance by a multi-racial coalition which also includes younger and women voters, to take immigration policy in a more racially inclusive and open direction, in keeping with the reality of demographic change in this country. Today's results could determine immigration policy for at least a generation. If the white supremacist party wins, all of the technical analysis of immigration law for which Immigration Daily is so deservedly respected and well known may be like rearranging the deck chairs on the Immigration Titanic." -Roger Algase
"I hope Mr. Obama will do something about Immigration in this country. I`m an immigrant who i`m waiting for my papers of 11 yrs. I don`t think they will do something so sun. Mr. Obama lye us 4 yrs. a go. I hope he will do something this yrs." -Star023jon
