(CNSNews.com) Journalist and TV personality Geraldo Rivera summed up the optimism of pro-immigrant activists and mostly Democrat politicians at the 13th annual U.S.-Mexico Congressional Border Issues Conference by saying he is confident President Barack Obama will keep his campaign promise to sign comprehensive immigration reform into law.
Barack Obama is the first Hispanic president the same way Bill Clinton was the first black president, Rivera said at the conference, which took place Thursday at the U.S. Capitol.
Rivera also said the Hispanic community should give the president some slack in keeping that promise on immigration reform, given the pressing problems with the economy and other priorities, including health care.
At the conferences morning panel, experts and activists called on the Obama administration to champion rational immigration reform that would give the estimated 12 to 14 million people who are in the country illegally a path to citizenship.
Panelist Kathleen Walker, past national president of the American Immigration Lawyers Association, said she wanted to avoid the A-word, or amnesty, but said there is a direct link between the future health of the economy and the millions of illegal aliens who are working in the United States.

Horrendo Revolver strikes again!
Stands to reason that Obama is the first Hispanic President. Clinto was the first Black President.
You man Whorealdo Redundo.
It’s to FOX’s shame that they still have whorealldo on their payroll...
Okay, I get. He’s had untreated syphilis for the last 25 years.
I don’t know whether or not BO is “the first Hispanic president” or not but his admiring, dumbass followers sure do say some goofy things.
Clearly all it takes to be Hispanic is to give them (some of them) what they want. In that case, isn’t McCain Hispanic too? Heck, half our Congress probably is.
And we all wonder why the Republicans Lost these last two elections...
WHOREALDO is a RACIST.
Good point. What I don’t get is why they have him on F&F and fawn all over him. I turn the station when he comes on.
Just because Whorealdo said he was a registered Republican doesn’t mean he is and doesn’t mean he votes Republican. He is just full of sh** and hot air.
Many feminists think he’s the first female president too! He’s all things!
2. You'd Rivera had slipped across the border himself with the way he is trying to represent Hispanics who are in this country illegally.
Rivera was born in Manhattan, New York, the son of Lillian (née Friedman), a waitress, and Cruz “Allen” Rivera, a restaurant worker and cab driver. Rivera's father was Puerto Rican and his mother was Jewish, and he was raised “mostly Jewish” and had a Bar Mitzvah
G. Rivera seems to be as confused about his roots as he is the facts behind his stories (e.g., Al Capone's secret vault).
I was watching him on a border segment.
I couldn’t help noticing that he was wearing rose colored sunglasses.
Obama is actually the first INDONESIAN President of the US.
How about Obozo as the first NO NOTHING PRESIDENT. I believe there was a political group once called that only in Obozo’s case this was meant literally...lol
