Immigration and foreign policy

It's very common to use examples to show whether Barack Obama (or any other U.S. president, really) is "serious" about Latin America or is "paying attention" to the region.  Such examples are usually overstated, as there is no single issue that Latin American leaders are centered on.  For Mexico and Central America, however, it is fair to say that immigration is critical--lobbying the U.S. government has now been a top priority for their presidents.  It will be at the top of the agenda for Guatemala when Arturo Valenzuela visits.  It certainly will be for El Salvador as well.

Immigration is too often framed solely in domestic policy terms.  It is an intermestic issue, to be sure, but immigration policy is foreign policy--that is the crux of the debate over state and local immigration laws.  We become too mired in the overcharged swamp that is current immigration debate, without thinking sufficiently about the broader regional implications.

Keith Olbermann - Mexico Issues Travel Warning About Going To US

Video : Well Known Sports Writer Dave Zirin against Arizona's Sport - Tax Money goes into Diamondbacks pockets - Boycott the Arizonan Diamondbacks

Millions of dollars in public funds go for the Baseball Stadium and other favors and support for the Diamondbacks.

Let's see who is Dave Zirin, a great enemy of Rush Limbaugh in Sport and Political Matters. They have had ugly fights.

From Wikipedia :

Dave Zirin is an American sportswriter. He champions athletes and issues which might be overlooked by corporate sports media and addresses the tendency of the media to objectify and employ athletes as pawns in money-making efforts.

Zirin's column, Edge of Sports, appears on Sports Illustrated’s website and he is the host of XM satellite’s weekly show, Edge of Sports Radio. Zirin is a frequent contributor to The Nation, a columnist for SLAM Magazine, and The Progressive. He was named one of Utne Reader's 50 Visionaries who are Changing Your World for 2009.

His first book, What’s My Name, Fool? Sports and Resistance in the United States (Haymarket Books) has entered its third printing.[1][2]

Zirin has taken his blend of sports and politics to ESPN's Outside the Lines, the Rachel Maddow Show, CNBC’s The Big Idea with Donny Deutch where he discussed steroid use in baseball with John Rocker and José Canseco; C-SPAN’s Book TV, and the WNBC Morning News in New York City, and MSNBC's Morning Joe.

Red Meat Inventory of Boycott to Arizona : Boston, Oakland CA, West Hollywood CA, El Paso TX, Philadelphia. Tucson and Flagstaff City Councils voted to oppose SB1070 :

The problem is that the cities of Tucson and Flagstaff are located in Arizona.

I want to give you the red meat and not the fat - Dozens of cities are considering the Boycott of Arizona, I will mention them only when they approve the boycott.

Have you thought of the billions of people around the Big World that are starting to hate and dislike Arizona as a Land of Racists ??

A land where they won't be welcome ??

Why go to visit People that will harass and stalk you ??

People will vote with their dollars by not going to Arizona.

How long can this grudge last ??? - Someone asked !

My answer : a feeling of resentment can last one thousand times more than the Arizona Racist Law. This grudge against Arizona will be felt by billions of people, not only in America, but around the World. Most of the World is not Milk White in color.

The grudge against Arizona will last for many years, you can see the Gran Cannyon in Video, the way that I see and admire Venice, Italy or Florence Italy every week.

You don't have to go to Arizona to see a cannyon or a desert.
