  •  False equivalence. (0+ / 0-)

    The GOP'ers and their minions have done far worse damage to the country than any blocking of comprehensive immigration reform that those from the left might be doing. Lack of employer oversight allows the exploitation of these workers...and that sure ain't Democratic doing.

      Sure it is, I can make the case all day long that the Democratic Party doesn't want employer enforcement of immigration law anymore then the Republican Party does -- they simply don't want it for a different reason.

        Cecilia Muñoz is the Director of Intergovernmental Affairs at the White House. Prior to her post with the Obama administration Cecilia Muñoz was Senior Vice President for the Office of Research, Advocacy and Legislation at the National Council of La Raza.

        The National Council of La Raza has been a consistent opponent of employer enforcement of immigration law since the 1986 IRCA (because they know that the crux of the biscuit is, if you are going to make it practically impossible for the illegal immigrant to work in the U.S. you may as well deport them).

        Do you think that Cecilia Muñoz is counseling President Obama that we need strong employer enforcement of immigration law?

              ...and taking Cecilia's position to be what you assume it to be. Basically demonizing her as a shill for oligarchs exploiting her own people. I'd call that close to blood libel.
