Thank You President Obama for your new immigration reform policy and for releasing hundreds of detainees. Now, please release the rest of these no risk, innocent immigrants.

On June 15 2012, the Obama Administration announced that it would grant deferred action (a form of administrative relief from deportation) for certain young people who were brought to the U.S. as young children and meet certain criteria.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

You can add a private note to this diary when hotlisting it:

    Tipped and rec'd for the name of this charitable organization to help elderly Jewish pensioners in Russia with their living expenses. It brought a smile to my face. Hope intended recipients smile at it, too.

    Now, in recent memory, as we're all aware, the RW has made a big hew and cry about "illlegal immigration." They've made their outrage at poor, brown-skinned illegal immigrants "mooching off taxpayers" into a talking point that's been in steady use by both sides in all recent discussion about immigration.

    What never gets asked, or discussed, is why. Why would so many poor people be risking life and limb to immigrate from their native countries, to a very uncertain future in the U.S.? What is going on with the world economy that would cause such large dislocations of the population? Let's introduce this question more into all our future discussions about immigration.

      I agree totally. Good question.

      As a very young man; my Grandfather came all the way from Russia, all by himself in the late 1870's. He did have a brother already living in Connecticut, but that was a long trip for a young person to undertake.

        immigrated in the middle 1800s. On my maternal side, they clearly immigrated to escape religious persecution. On my paternal side, it's less clear, although economics were probably a factor. Also, there's evidence (migration patterns in the U.S.) that my paternal ancestors' fortunes were somehow tied to the construction of the Eerie Canal. We don't have much information available there.

        The times were different. Major economies were still undeveloped. Today, it's a whole different ball of wax, and provokes different questions.

      I've always loved Cesar Chavez and totally believe in the power of boycotts.

      I stopped eating grapes during the boycott back then and I totally forgot to ever eat them again, in all these years since.

      I just started eating grapes again about two years ago.

        same. Took me years to start eating grapes again.

        My (then) husband was a Teamster at the time, and we had a bumper sticker:

        THIS TEAMSTER SUPPORTS FARMWORKERS
        and that was because the Teamsters were signing sweetheart contracts with the growers. We were active with Friends of Farmworkers.

        That was a damn fine fight, as Mother Jones would say.
