Will the Real Barack Obama Please Stand Up?

La Prensa-San Diego, Posted: Aug 08, 2008

SAN DIEGO An editorial in the bilingual newspaper La Prensa-San Diego wonders which is the "real" Barack Obamathe presidential candidate who spoke in Germany about tearing down the Berlin Wall, or the U.S. Senator who voted in 2006 to build a wall on the Mexico border. Speaking before a crowd of 200,000 Germans, Obama said that the greatest danger of all is to allow new walls to divide us from one another. Yet editors argue that the U.S.-Mexico border wall will become a symbol of racism and nativism to 40 million people of Mexican ancestry in the United States, Mexico, Central and South America. Although Obama currently enjoys the overwhelming support of Hispanicshis speeches support humane changes to U.S. immigration policythe editorial contends that actions speak louder than words and the Hispanic vote is not yet in the bag.
