Immigrants in the U.S. Take to the Streets to Demand Equality
Between The Lines' Scott Harris spoke with Labor journalist David Bacon
As immigration reform legislation was debated in Congress, hundreds of thousands of immigrants and their supporters have marched in cities from coast to coast across America. Their large numbers -- half a million in Chicago and estimates of a million in Los Angeles -- illustrated what's at stake for the immigrant community if proposed laws are passed that criminalize undocumented workers living in the United States.
The leading legislative proposals now before Congress deal with two main paths to reform. The version passed by the House, sponsored by Ohio GOP Rep. Sensenbrenner, takes a punitive approach by making undocumented immigrants and those who assist them felons -- increasing employer sanctions and border security -- but offers no provisions for legalization. The Senate is considering a less draconian measure sponsored by Senators John McCain of Arizona and Ted Kennedy of Massachusetts that proposes a guest worker program and a process for legalization.
Within this often emotional debate, strains of xenophobia can be seen in groups like the Minutemen, whose volunteers -- criticized by many as vigilantes -- patrol border areas without government sanction. Between The Lines' Scott Harris spoke with Labor journalist David Bacon, who takes a look at the U.S. immigration debate and the winners and losers among corporations and workers if provisions of some proposed reform legislation are signed into law.
