Immigrant Workers in New Orleans

Mary Sanchez:

The dire poverty suffered by black people in New Orleans was not created by Katrina. The hurricane simply exacerbated it. The immigrant workers who are taking the jobs now should not be blamed for a situation they did not create.

Nor should they become scapegoats when strategic, long-term solutions that could help blacks haven't even been tried yet.
