Awaiting the Obamnesty

By Mark Krikorian on December 1, 2008

From a piece (not online) by Frontera NorteSur:

Meanwhile, many Mexican migrants are hedging their bets in the Promised Land. Taurino Castrejon Salgado, a Guerrero leader of the Union of Campesinos and Mexican Emigrants (UCEM), said the election of Barack Obama to the presidency of the United States has strengthened the decision of many migrants to remain north of the border.

"When thinking about the Mexican or the US crisis, the Mexican or Guerrero native prefers to endure the one in the United States," Castrejon said, "because they are already over there and believe that it is only a matter of waiting days or months to normalize their situations."
