Resolving Immigration Problems In An Honest & Responsible Manner

Deportation possible for Occupy Oakland protester

Immigration issues are a highly contentious subject. The Obama administration has not earned the best reputation because of its high rates of deportations, and it seems that as an election approaches, officials are getting tougher on their immigration stance. At least that's how it could seem to one California resident, who is being held without bail in an already overcrowded jail system due to his immigration status.

Students facing deportation instead of a college degree

It was back in January of this year when one California university campus was raided by federal immigration agents and subsequently closed down. The school in question was Tri-Valley University, with its campus located in Pleasanton. The closure came about when it was alleged that the school was a front for illegal immigrants. And now as the case has developed, hundreds of students who went to the university are caught in the crossfire, and are facing deportation and removal proceedings.

ICE deporting some U.S. citizens?

It is truly unfortunate, but it appears that the Obama administration's eagerness to deport record numbers of illegal immigrants is also resulting in the government deporting people who are U.S. citizens. Any California resident watching the news of late knows that the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency is conducting more immigration raids. During the last fiscal year alone, some 396,000 people were deported. But in some cases, deportation and removal proceedings were less than accurate, resulting in some legal citizens being deported by mistake.

Unlike rest of U.S., California makes life easier for immigrants

It seems that the state of California is doing what the federal government cannot do in terms of passing immigrant friendly legislation. Over the last several months, California has made some important changes in their immigration policies that are set up to actually help illegal immigrants. These changes include some new measures that will help open state-funded scholarships to undocumented students, as well as a law that states that employers are not required to check immigration status via the federal E-Verify program. This is a major step forward in employment immigration law and making California a welcoming place for immigrants.

Deportations weaken Latinos' faith in Obama

Unfortunately, the threat of deportation and removal proceedings for immigrants accused of committing a crime in California is not limited to crime shows; it is a fact of life for many immigrants facing charges. The Latino community is consequently disenchanted with the perceived failure of the Obama administration to live up to its campaign promises concerning immigration and deportation.
