The Senate yesterday to throw $600 more into the useless and hopeless project of "sealing" the U.S.-Mexican border. What a waste!
It is unconscionable to blame and persecute Mexican and other immigrants who are forced to migrate because of trade policies that our own government has so forcefully promoted.
Two things about immigration are assured this coming week.
As a Jew, I have become alarmed over recent events on the immigration issue regarding the Arizona Law SB 1070 signed by Arizona Governor Brewer.
Latino players plan to boycott baseball's all-star game if it occurs in Arizona.

On May 1st, the immigrant community from New York City to Los Angeles stood up to the racist law passed in Arizona known as SB 1070.
