March for Immigration Reform in Los Angeles

La Opinin, Posted: Mar 27, 2010

LOS ANGELES -- First it was Washington; today, its Los Angeles. Editors of La Opinin write, "We join the thousands of voices marching today for comprehensive immigration reform this year." The editorial argues that the lack of a modern immigration policy is harming our country. Editors write that the normalization of status for millions of workers currently living in the shadows will help stabilize the economy, contribute to national security, and serve as an acknowledgement of these immigrants contributions in both productivity and taxes.

There is a window of opportunity for legislative debate to take place on immigration reform this year, editors write. But time is limited. The comment by Sen. Lindsey Grahamthe Republican sponsor of the immigration bill in the Senatethat there will be no reform this year shows that this window is threatening to close.

The victory in health care reform is an indication of what can be achieved, although the comparison only goes so far, according to the editorial. Todays march for comprehensive immigration reform is a message to Democrats and Republicans, editors write, and "a valid act of free, democratic expression in favor of a law that will benefit society as a whole."
