The Immigrant Vote & the Need to Denounce Nancy Pelosi

October 24, 2008

On the heels of Nancy Pelosi’s statement reversing the Democrats commitment to push immigration reform in the first 100 days of the next political year, this interview with the Bay Area’s Your Call show with Rose Aguilar was pitch perfect in its timing. Rose, her guests and I got to explore and discuss the historic role of the immigrant and Latino vote in this year’s Presidential election. And it was quite a good omen to be able to discuss Pelosi’s controversial statement – “maybe there never is a path to citizenship if you came here illegally”- on one of the most widely-heard public radio stations in her district. As I did during the show I will do now: If you live in the Bay Area and are incensed, concerned or angered at this naked betrayal by Pelosi and the Democrats, then go and give her office an earful; Those of you that can might even consider going and sitting in at her office until she retracts these statements (some of Pelosi’s DC-based friends in the nonprofit world are saying it was a “slip”). So, check out the show here!

  1. If you came here illegally, then you should not expect to be handed citizenship.

    Thanks for the tip. I am considering campaigning for Cindy Sheehan and will definitely send Pelosi an earful.

    This is ridiculous — Even if it is political rhetoric, we shouldn’t accept it.

    Or let’s just recall her, she’s been an embarrassment on a number of issues:

    There is one reason migration is from Mexico to the U.S. The difference in potential is caused by corruption. Mexico has more oil, a thriving tourist industry, a longer growing season and a better work ethic. When U.S. corrupton exceeds all others and socialists line entreprenuers up for the firing squad, where will the current flow?
