While Republican politicians try to distract attention by focusing on the manufactured, "Trumped-up" Mexican "Border Crisis" caused by desperate brown-skinned immigrants seeking refuge from dictatorship, gang violence and political turmoil in their home Caribbean and Latin American countries (as I have discussed in previous comments), a debate is now taking place in Congress which could determine the future of US immigration for a generation to come.

As Vox reports, the Senate is now debating a wide ranging immigration reform bill which could provide major relief to undocumented immigrants and significantly reduce backlogs in legal immigration visas.

But the bill is in serious jeopardy because of the influence of "identity politics" (a/k/a white racism), which could derail the proposed reforms in a major blow to immigrant Human Rights. See, (November 15):

Immigration fixes may not survive in Democrats' budget reconciliation bill
