DEPORTATION MADNESS -- The Wild, Wild World of Immigration Law

Courtesy of the Texas Observer

Once again, I turned on the computer this morning and can only wonder what the heck is going on in the world of U.S. immigration law and enforcement.  The nation continues to pursue the massive deportation of "criminal aliens," many of whom are long term lawful permanent residents convicted of relatively inconsequential crimes. A court criticizes the U.S. government for failing to recognize the compelling evidence that an ethnic Korean woman would likely be tortured if returned to China.

I refuse to turn on the television news for I am likely to see some wacky Arizona legislator criticizing the federal government for challenging SB 1070 on federal preemption grounds and railing on the feds, immigrants, and immigrant-lovers.

I think that I will avoid using any more electricity today and go take a walk!
