Last week, Southern California protesters blocked buses carrying migrants who recently arrived in the country and were on their way to be processed. After numerous protests, fasting by activists on the National Mall, sit-ins and civil disobedience, immigration advocates have come up empty. The advocates’ demands for a hiatus on deportations have been pushed to the background by the arrival of tens of thousands of children, many on their own, and families on the Texas-Mexico border. While President Barack Obama has said he would take action on immigration now that the GOP House has retreated from any action this year, he has repeatedly said the action he may take would be limited.
