Garden City Telegram (Newspaper) - January 5, 1983, Garden City, Kansas True immigration Reform not impossible today in Garden City by Antonia Hernandez the 97th Congress attempt to provide the country with immigration Reform died a few Days before a Christmas. In legislative debate and in some a not All a newspaper accounts of the congressional mane vering which occurred in those final heated Days and nights we hispanics were often Given the role of the villain. . Selfish. House speaker mip of Neill even used some Choice language with California representative Edward Roybal in his. Arm twisting efforts to get a Bill a any Bill a passed. With Many colleagues from the mexican american Legal defense amp education fund Malden spent countless hours this month in the Halls of Congress. We were there not to kill immigration Reform but to insure that the rights of hispanic americans and other a foreign looking americans were not abridged or abrogated by individuals who neither understood nor have experienced the discrimination we hispanics have endured in our uneven Progress As americans. The legislation we opposed failed to provide additional enforcement dollars for the immigration amp naturalization service while calling for unenforceable employer sanctions which in effect a invited employers to discriminate hispanic link against . Hispanics with impunity. It offered to cure the problem of too Many immigrants with an h-2 provision which would bring in a minimum of 175,000 guest workers. It contained provisions allowing Long time undocumented residents to remain Here Only under grossly restrictive and punitive terms and conditions a an officially sanctioned . Underclass. We were a on the Hill past Midnight and on weekends whenever the debate and occasion demanded. We were there because we were extremely concerned that such non Reform elements would dilute our democracy and Divide us. What happened in those final hours of decision and debate gives me Hope that True immigration Reform is not an impossibility. For other reasons it also gives me Pride. There were some positive actions too i. The congressional hispanic caucus a whose numbers will increase from 8 toll next year displayed a Unity and commitment unequalled in its 6-year history. During the debate its members were Ever present United and vocal. 2. Other members of the . House of representatives recognized a Many for the first time a that the issues and fears which groups such As Malden and the league of United latin american citizens had been expounding on for months were not just concerns of civil rights organizational activists. They saw genuine apprehension in the eyes of their minority colleagues and heard it in their voices. 3. For the first time hispanics saw a forceful Black Brown coalition work on a primarily hispanic Issue. Black members Felt out fears in their gut and led by such men As Texas Mickey Leland California s Ron Dellums and Augustus Hawkins and Michigan s John Conyers they were eloquent in the debate Resolute in their support. 4. Also for the first time Congress Felt the Impact of what its hispanic members a few As they Are a can do. Hispanic representatives played the a a games by the other Guys rules and they made their Point. The congressional establishment has Learned a lesson we Hope. Latino legislators organizational leadership and individuals want immigration Reform. We want to eliminate the country a shadowy subclass of undocumented workers As much As a or More than a anyone else does. The undocumented so often pushed by our foreign policy decisions and encouraged by our hypocritical a hot and cold spigot immigration policies remain the biggest victims of inaction. If any statement can be made about what happened to immigration Reform in the 97th Congress it is that Reform was killed by some outlandish provincial attitudes and selfish interests which went against the National Grain and interest. As for the role hispanics played we stood up to be counted we led a successful fight to kill a Bill which had become a piece of racist nativist legislation unworthy of consideration by the nations lawmakers Antonia Hernandez is associate counsel of the mexican american Legal defense amp education fund in Washington d.c., where she directs its capital staff or.

The a Mondale for president committee is identified As the com Mittee formed to further the candidacy. This delicate dance around the question of whether Mondale is or is not a presidential candidate is choreographed by the requirements of Federal election Law which requires potential candidates to file declarations of candidacy if they receive or spend More than $5,000 in their Effort to decide whether or not to run no one expects Mondale to follow the example of Edward m Kennedy who decided not to pursue the 1984 nomination it was the Massachusetts senators announcement on i that propelled Mondale into the front runners role. Former gov Reubin Askew of Florida also took an official step monday toward formal candidacy. He did no to file a form but accomplished the same thing with a letter to the Fec in which he said a while a formal announcement or declaration of candidacy for the democratic nomination has not been made i am taking this action because i anticipate receiving contributions or making expenditures in excess of $5,000 which May Well fall beyond the terms of the testing the Waters sen Alan Cranston a Cali sent a similar letter to the commission last november Sens.
