As the NFL scandals keep breaking and a greater degree of attention is placed on violence against women, it is my hope that groups which do not get much attention in this conversation are brought more to the forefront: Native American and immigrant women.
It's no secret that President Obama could heal the pain of immigrant families facing separation today with the stroke of a pen. But instead of taking action now, the president has ordered a "review" of deportation policies.
The Latino and immigrant community has been criminalized and targeted for several years. As a Latino, I find the Obama administration's public relations move to use Cecilia Muñoz, a former immigrant rights advocate, as the spokesperson for their worst immigration policies despicable.
For the president to win re-election, he must garner a significant percentage of Latino votes. SCOMM, the, massive and controversial deportations program that President Obama is championing, is one sure way for him to lose the election.
