With Bloomberg Out, Chicanos To Pressure Bernie Sanders For CIR (3/6/2019)

With Michael Bloomberg Out Of Nomination Process, Chicanos To Pressure Bernie Sanders For Comprehensive Immigration Reform.

La Cartita --- Michael Bloomberg announced yesterday that he will not contend for the Democratic presidential nomination for the 2020 US presidential contest.

Bloomberg, a billionaire philanthropist and owner of Bloomberg LP, a finance software company, is looking to sidestep controversial topics like immigration in order to achieve immediate solutions on urgent issues relating to climate change and gun control.

In a letter published to Bloomberg News, Bloomberg mentions the main issue is maintaining Democratic Party unity against Donald Trump. Thus, he wished to not fragment the party with his nomination, noting that it was crowded with candidates and a voting base not friendly to market oriented government. In his words, the risk of party fragmentation was too great, which could lead to another "four more years" of Trump.

Mexican Voters, Immigrant Voters Proposal

A proposal to mobilize Mexican and immigrant contingent of voters was ignored by Bloomberg as a possible counter-balance to Democratic party fragmentation. Under the plan, White, college-aged voters would be swapped for multi-family households with Chicano, Mexican and immigrant voters. Anecdotal evidence suggests these voters sat the 2016 election out.

Sanders is known to be hesitant to invoke issues relating to colonialism and slavery, but many believe pressure can be set on the Democratic party generally on the topics.

Bernie Sanders Now Object Of Activist Efforts

Efforts to pressure Bloomberg on comprehensive immigration reform (CIR) will now be oriented towards Bernie Sanders, the obvious front-runner for the general election who faces stiff internal opposition from monied donors, unpragmatic activists and a large base of the Democratic Party.
