Justice for Immigrants

11 April 2009 4 Comments

News reports today stated that a law effected in Texas in 2008, eliminating the right of seasonal workers to obtain drivers’ licenses, has been overturned by a judge.   Hallelujah for the democratic process, which most often results in justice.

News reports today also presented an update to the recent serving of justice in the case of an immigrant college student from Florida, originally from Egypt, who was accused of engaging in terrorism, after what may or may not have been pipe bombs were found in the trunk of a car he was a passenger in.  The student was found “not guilty.”  He and his parents, also immigrants, applauded American justice.

Americans believe all persons are “innocent until proven guilty.”   This man has been proclaimed innocent by a jury of twelve U.S. citizens.

The update:  Today, immigration agents arrested him again and are seeking to deport him, essentially on the same charges for which he was just unanimously exonerated.

Is this the new face of America?  I think not.  American justice is most often well served.   When it is not, the effectiveness of the system relies upon public outcry of the citizens.

American Citizens,  it is time for your cry.

    God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference. Ring a bell?
