Does Sotomayor’s Nomination Mean Delay on Immigration Reform?

with one comment

Although this blog entry deviates slightly from our normal immigration related material. Sonia Sotomayor’s nomination is relevant to immigration, to immigration reform, and is a truly inspring American story.

President Barack Obama has tapped federal appeals judge Sonia Sotomayor for the Supreme Court. If Sotomayor is confirmed she will make history, becoming the first Hispanic and first Hispanic woman to serve on the Supreme Court. Sotomayor has in many ways lived the American dream. She was born to a Puerto Rican family and grew up in a public housing project in the South Bronx.  Sotomayor’s father was a factory worker with a third-grade education, and died when Sotomayor was nine years old. Her mother raised Sotomayor while working as a nurse.

The Latino community strongly supports immigration reform and would like President Obama to make the illegal aliens living in the U.S. legal. Some immigrant advocates fear that Sotomayor’s nomination might be an effort by President Obama to put the more controversial immigration reform on a slow track.

  1. The age-old pesky U.S.-Mexico border problem has taxed the resources of both countries, led to long lists of injustices, and appears to be heading only for worse troubles in the future. Guess what? The border problem can never be solved. Why? Because the border IS the problem! It’s time for a paradigm change.

    Never fear, a satisfying, comprehensive solution is within reach: the Megamerge Dissolution Solution. Simply dissolve the border along with the failed Mexican government, and megamerge the two countries under U.S. law, with mass free 2-way migration eventually equalizing the development and opportunities permanently, with justice and without racism, and without threatening U.S. sovereignty or basic principles.
