Comment: The Moral Dream
On the fiftieth anniversary of Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech, NBC News reports that some immigration advocates are making connections between Dr. King's themes and immigration, and adopting a "moral tone". Fifty years ago Martin Luther King Jr. fought for human equality. But in his fight he did not focus on policies, he focused on the moral dignity of a person regardless of their race. He knew what he wanted to see in the world and he worked to close the gap between his vision and reality. Today in 2013, we are faced with the same issue of human equality as we did in 1963, but this time as it relates to immigration. Advocates sometimes get caught up in the minutia of public policies but they must, like Dr. King did, remember there is a bigger vision that needs to be achieved - a restoration of full human dignity to a people demeaned by unjust laws. America has progressed through its young history by extending its founding vision of "All men are created equal" progressively to more and more people - to women through women's suffrage, to African Americans through emancipation and civil rights. It is high time that this American dream, which was also Dr. King's dream, be applied to the largest persecuted population in the nation today, its immigrants, by passing comprehensive immigration reform.
