John Barrow is Georgia District 12’s representative to the United States House of Representatives. As one of his constituents, I met with him today. I pressed for two issues: decriminalization of narcotics and immigration reform.
For decriminalization of narcotics, he told me not to hold my breath.
Then he told Anibal Ibarra and me that he would not support immigration reform until the border was secured. He said people were fearful and would not support immigration reform until they thought the border was secure.
If the United States is going to wait for its white people to stop being scared of non-whites, then the entire country ought not to hold its breath.
A politician does what he or she feels will get him/her the votes to win the next election. A leader would guide his/her constituents to the sane, moral, humane and safer policies whatever the constituents’ misapprehensions.
It’s obvious into which category John Barrow falls.
