Olivas on the Obama Administration's Immigration Enforcement Now, Enforcement Forever Strategy : “We literally have the worst of all worlds.”
Julia Preston of the N.Y. Times reports what ImmigrationProf has been reporting for weeks -- that the Obama administration has focused increasingly on immigration enforcement with little movement on pushing comprehensive immigration reform in Congress. The article quotes Professor Michael Olivas (Houston) about how this is "the worst of all worlds." The Obama enforcement orientation led to protests by immigrant rights advocates in Los Angeles and New York last week.
When will we see a meaningful push for comprehensive immigration reform?
