On Immigration Reform, the Democrats Caved

By Miguel Perez

Just when we thought we were about to see fair and compassionate immigration reform, when we thought the Latino vote in the presidential election had opened a real pathway to U.S. citizenship for some 11 million undocumented immigrants, when at least some Republicans seemed to be retreating from their anti-immigrant offensive, the Democrats caved!

The comprehensive immigration reform legislation drafted in secret and finally unveiled by a bipartisan group of U.S. Senators known as the “Gang of Eight” — including four Democrats — is not the “path to legalization” many of us expected.

It’s a minefield!
