ImmigrationProf Exclusive! Interview With Senator Barack Obama

160pxobamabarack We are pleased to announce that at 8 A.M. PST on Tuesday morning, the ImmigrationProf blog will post an exclusive interview with Senator Barack Obama (D-Ill), one of the candidates vying for the Democratic Presidential nomination. We prepared a list of questions for Senator Obama on a range of difficult immigration issues, including immigration reform, undocumented immigration, family immigration, deportation and immigration raids, local (anti-)immigration ordinances, integration of immigrants into U.S. society, the deaths along the U.S./Mexico border, and his vote in favor of the Secure Fence Act.  Readers will see that Senator Obama's responses made for a very interesting dialogue!

We are actively seeking other 2008 Presidential candidates to answer the same immigration questions that we posed to Senator Obama.

Please make sure and check out the exclusive Barack Obama interview on Tuesday morning!

Jennifer Chacón, Bill Hing, and Kevin Johnson

Let's compare that with the questions you ask.

Frankly, Senator Obama's immigration policy is the most sensible of any of the candidates. He wants to lower citizenship application fees lower than any candidate, give more "points" for keeping families together, and implement the DREAM act nationally so that the children of immigrants who deserve to go to college can actually afford to do so and actually get on a path to citizenship. I think the DREAM act is one of the most rational laws out there.
