  • ✪ Gerrymandering: Crash Course Government and Politics #37


My first critic is that this entire story isn't really being told you know a big big focus in the debate has been on whose crossing the border and whether or not they have the proper documentation to do so, very little about why they're coming here in the first place. My other critique of the way politicians have been talking about immigration is that there is really really harsh rhetoric really from both sides of the aisle coming at immigrants to the point where many latino residents documented or not are being seen as criminal are being seen as being potentially undocumented and this has really harmful on the ground kind of effects i'm so i think that's my biggest critique of of the way the debate has gone so far is that they're not talking about exploitation they're not talking about the economic realities of this and they're not talking about no one's willing to really step up and challenge the decriminalization narrative people get a lot of their information from the media and so when these same debates are getting repeated over and over and over again there being jack-hammered into our consciousness what we're finding is that these debates this issue of immigrant illegality has become so pervasive to the point that when you ask an ordinary citizen about the issue of immigration this is kind of what they talk what they talk about i think the way forward i mean i think that the what we should be thinking about as we move forward as is kind of forming these class based on alliances that are really going to challenge some of these these narratives and some of these practices that are gonna challenge exploitation that are going to challenge the criminalization of immigrants i think that's really the way forward as is more of a grass roots kind of thing i mean comprehencive of immigration reform is is needed and it's something that's important but given the current state of our political system i'm not optimistic number one of the getting past the number two if it does get past of it something fruitful were really actually creating real change in immigration system we don't want to get to the point where we're using immigrants as kind of a redevelopment ploy we're not we don't want to get to the point where bringing in immigrants is going to help us as a community and if immigrants are going to arrive that's great but we need to help them as well and we need to have concerted efforts to help them we don't want to pass pro-immigrant legislation just in order to make our predominately white communities look-like cosmopolitan hot spots that are going to attract creative entrepreneurs and we need to really make sure that this is a genuine effort and genuine effort that immigrants themselves are involved A genuine effort that's really happening from the ground up
