Returning to an important topic I blogged about: Deportations. Tom Eley (WSWS) reports:
This is appalling. And Barack talked big about immigration in the campaign but he's done nothing for immigrants.
I think it's disgusting to break up families anyway but I especially think it's disgusting to do so when you have refused to offer a path to citizenship like you promised in the election.
Barack is full of crap.
And let's take note of the fact that when not one but two of his family were caught, after he was sworn in, being in the country without documentation and both were scheduled for deportations, they got to stay. One nearly hit a cop car while driving drunk and he gets to stay too.
But everybody else is out of luck.
Closing with C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
