Today, the opinion pages of the Spanish-language press assess the prospects for immigration reform — and note that more demonstrations are underway.
Frustrated op-eds. The editorial “Reform left behind” in La Raza (Chicago) says:
“The president should speak directly to the American people about the importance of immigration reform. He should do what he does best: roll up his sleeves and speak from his heart at town hall meetings and in televised speeches. But what happened after he met with Latino leaders in the White House? The president returned to the public square to sell his plan for health-care reform. He even added other items to his agenda: financial regulation and new changes to the education law No Child Left Behind. It looks like what’s really been left behind is immigration reform.”
