But let's be honest. With unemployment rising and the economy in deep recession, this is a politically dangerous, if not impossible, time to overhaul decades of failed policy. Still, three targeted measures can and should be passed in the first year of an Obama administration: the DREAM Act, granting legal status to undocumented students; the AgJobs bill, benefiting farmworkers, and the Immigrant Visa Recapture bill, which would require the government to issue immigrant visas allocated, but unused because of bureaucratic delays, during the past 15 years.

Wernick is an immigration lawyer and professor at Baruch College of the City University of New York.

Barack Obama should take three strong steps toward true immigration reform

I think I'll send a letter to the NY daily news and advise the delusional professor to put the crack pipe down.

He is indeed delusional, if he thinks we will sit idly by while they attempt piecemeal amnesty. The outrage that closed down the switchboards is nothing compared to the current climate in this country. Let them try.

The current climate in this country against illegal immigration is almost identical to my memories of the tensions felt during the civil rights era. An amnesty will signal the start of its reincarnation.
