Happy Democrat Photo: Richardson! Edition


“The Congress should abandon the fence, lock, stock and barrel,” Richardson said Thursday in a speech at Georgetown University laying out a four-part plan for immigration overhaul. “It flies in the face of America as a symbol of freedom.”


Note to other prominent Democrats, especially those whose names begin with J and end with Biden or Lieberman. Instead of going on Meet the Press and scolding his own party for not behaving properly in order to capture the Latino vote, Richardson stood up and gave a speech laying out actual work to be done to make immigrants’ lives better. Watch. Learn.

  1. “Instead of going on Meet the Press and scolding his own party for not behaving properly in order to capture the Latino vote, Richardson stood up and gave a speech laying out actual work to be done to make immigrants’ lives better.”
    Can he *do* that?

  2. Fence or no fence, we on the left must understand that the resistance to increased immigration comes partly from those who think that it undercuts their economic opportunities, and that those people are not *completely* wrong.
    No one denies that the main jobs “illegal” immigrants take are those not requiring even a high school education. The US has almost 30 million “native” citizens without a high school education. The programs currently in place to provide them with HS equivalency or other educational opportunities are an underfunded joke.
    If we paired immigration reform with increased support for remedial education, we could assemble a winning coalition, and slice one of the cords linking low income Americans (especially whites) from right wing politics. If for every dollar earned by an immigrant in a low-wage job, even 10 cents were appropriated for remedial education, we would have tens of billions of dollars to support such a program.

  3. Didn’t you hear?- Biden explained it- it is is all Mexico’s fault.
    They have a corrupt governent and a bunch of narcos. No mention of our corupt government and our nation of coke heads.
    Biden is a tool.
