Immigration reform news 2015: GOP concerned over blocking Obama executive order, Immigrant Family Detention shutdown demanded

Immigration reform is moving nowhere despite a sort of realization among conservatives within Republicans that without it Republicans have little chance of bagging White House in US Presidential elections 2016. They are asking GOP to come out with a blueprint as to how it intends to absorb as many as 12 million undocumented immigrants.

Nonetheless, they have made so many blunders as far as immigration reform in the US is concerned, that undocumented immigrants and their supporters are not going to believe their promises just before the crucial elections slated to be held next year.

The way they have destroyed every effort made by President Barack Obama and Democrats has proved beyond doubt that they just don’t hate immigrants, they hate any sort of amnesty for the immigrants who have been working hard to be accepted in the US society.Photo courtesy woodtv.com

Notwithstanding the trust deficit there are signs that political compulsions may force Republicans to announce some sort of roadmap for immigration reform.

In the meantime there is intense lobbying to close the immigrant family detention program. The Congressional Hispanic Caucus’ (CHC) demands for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to end the immigrant family detention program seems to have gathered momentum now.

Reports suggest that Detention Watch Network (DWN), a leading coalition of NGOs and individuals working against injustices of the U.S. immigration detention and deportation system, have come out very strongly against the Obama administration. They have blamed the White House for the continued practice of family detention.

While talking about the development DWN Co-Director Silky Shah said, “Locking up women and children endangers their mental and physical health…Women and children detained in these centers are fleeing violence and often have legitimate claims to asylum, yet the White House’s policy systematically denies them any refuge and their right to due process…It is long past time for the Obama administration to abandon the abusive, and inhumane practice of family detention that erodes family bonds and undermines children’s wellbeing.”
