Deception and Intrigue As they Urge Latinos to Cooperate with the Census

OPINION AND ANALYSIS
by Rev. Miguel Rivera

Almost eleven months have passed, after the National Coalition Of Latino Clergy and Christian Leaders (CONLAMIC) Bishops and Pastors calling all undocumented immigrants not to participate in the upcoming census effort.

None of the so called advocates of the Latino community have argued successfully against the fundamental principle of such radical call powered by TRUTH and DECENCY.

Their response instead has been an extremely well financed advertising campaign in full force such has never before witnessed in our country.

Their mission is to convince every undocumented immigrant - "You Don't Count, But You Must Be Counted".

Further analysis of this opportunistic political scheme deems constitutional rationale about the 1940 Japanese Americans who were rounded up and forced to live in interment camps, exposed by their own census "confidential" information.

The truth is that after the 2000 census data was made public, Latinos were signaled as a majority among minorities, which increased anti-immigrant rhetoric among those who feared change and diversity. This has dominated the local and national political spectrum, which continues to grow more each day, damaging the moral fabric of America.

A fascist tone of nationalism impedes all possibilities for a comprehensive legislative approach to solve this matter. Even worst, ICE Agents negotiate "snitch" (S) Visas among unauthorized immigrants, hiring them as informants and accelerating the rancor and animosity inside our communities and neighborhoods.

Meanwhile, Republicans and Democrats alike are fearful while politically capitalizing and doing nothing. This irresponsible behavior empowers and provides more credibility to those who poisoned the immigration debate with racial intolerance and discriminatory corrupted facts. Legislative efforts have been initiated but the fact is that there is no will in this Congress to tackle the moral legislative responsibility for Comprehensive Immigration Reform.

Public policy procrastination has set in to repeat this immoral Congressional conduct and is excusable because unauthorized immigrants Don't Count, But Except for Obvious Opportunistic Reasons, (Need) To Be Counted..!

More federal funding is allocated for private detention centers to incarcerate and accommodate the "illegals". Unauthorized immigration has become a major economic force for many rural and inner city communities who are eager for federal funding, while enhancing the nations beauty with wire razor, steel and concrete correctional institutions not build for comfort. More raids are being executed elevating the highest number of deported immigrants during this Democratic (Yes We Can) Obama Administration. And to make matters worst - more division among Latino Elected members of Congress makes legalization less achievable, due also
to the inept and corrupted partisan ways of business in Washington where Latino constituents' concerns don't matter to the administration and Congress because - Si Se Puede! - they have no other choice but to vote Democratic.

Evidently, a Spanish cry for justice and honest political slogan serves well for the coming mid term elections:

CONGRESS: (YES WE CAN) ASK UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS TO BE COUNTED, WHILE THEY DON'T COUNT!

CONGRESS: (YES WE CAN) VOID THEIR PRIVILEGE TO A DRIVER'S LICENSE;

CONGRESS: (YES WE CAN) DEPORT MOTHERS WITHOUT THEIR AMERICAN BORN CHILDREN STRIPPING THEM FROM THEIR MOTHER'S RIGHT TO RAISE THEM (108,000 so far and counting)

CONGRESS: (YES WE CAN) USE ALL THE FUNDING WE CAN GET OUT OF COUNTING THE ILLEGALS WITHOUT DELIVERING RUNNING WATER, SEWERS, ELECTRICITY AND ROADS TO "LAS COLONIAS", IN TEXAS, BECAUSE THEY DON'T VOTE. WE ARE NOT ACCOUNTABLE...!

CONGRESS: (YES WE CAN) SEEK HEALTH CARE REFORM WHILE ILLEGALS NEED NOT BE PERMITTED TO BUY INSURANCE WITH THEIR OWN MONEY..!

CONGRESS: (YES WE CAN) COLLECT SOCIAL SECURITY AND HOME OWNER'S PROPERTY TAXES FROM UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS, WITHOUT FURTHER ACCOUNTABILITY..!

And joining the choir:

The CENSUS: "WHILE YOU DON'T COUNT, ITS OUR SOLEMN DUTY TO GET YOU COUNTED.

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT IS NOT OUR RESPONSIBILITY, NOR SHOULD WE CARE"!

Yes We Can (No Matter What Happens To You Later) its the Census 2010 very intriguing and deceptive, propaganda, against Latino unauthorized immigrants indeed..!
