Skip to comments.Obama: I'm not walking away from immigration reform
Posted on 09/15/2010 8:11:02 PM PDT by Justaham
President Barack Obama assured Hispanics on Wednesday he was not walking away from immigration reform while expressing disappointment that he had not delivered on a 2008 promise to overhaul U.S. policy.
Obama, a Democrat who is ramping up his rhetoric against Republicans ahead of November 2 congressional elections, said only cooperation from both parties would allow reforms to advance.
He blamed Republicans for backing away from reform and urged Hispanics -- an important and growing voting bloc -- to continue giving him the support they gave during his presidential campaign.
"Now, I know that many of you campaigned hard for me, and understandably you're frustrated that we have not been able to move this over the finish line yet. I am too," he told a gala dinner for the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute, referring to immigration reform.
"But let me be clear: I will not walk away from this fight. My commitment is getting this done as soon as we can. We can't keep kicking this challenge down the road."

Please continue to be a radical America hating out-of-touch narcissistic liberal socialist POTUS!
I can see November from my window...
He needs to run away from it. I still haven’t found anyone who could tell me WHY we need “immigration reform”. Nobody seems to know.
“WHY we need immigration reform...”
Because the Ruling Class intends to use it to put out the Tea Party fire lit by We the People.
from what I’ve seen, he doesn’t walk... he slithers.... toward anything that hurts America.
Best answer I’ve been able to get yet. Most people just shrug their shoulders.
Let me be clear: “Zero is an absolute jackass!”
An issue which Obama shares with Dubya. Two ruling class elitists when it comes to amnesty for illegals.
How else are Dems going to get another 20 million votes to steal all elections? It’s getting really hard to manufacture those votes from the dead.
Because the Ruling Class intends to use it to put out the Tea Party fire lit by We the People.
I really believe that's all there is to it.
The Ruling Class wants a more compliant electorate.
It's disgusting to contemplate. But likely true.
In the absence of immigration reform...the probability of the Ruling Class being deposed successfully rises dramatically.
“Immigration Reform” sufficiently dilutes the power of We the People that the Ruling Class might yet be able to post-pone the inevitable.
Immigration reform yeah,this country needs it badly.
Bs amnesty and more pandering to tech companies looking for sub-wage workers.............uh no.
Not to mention the cartels would not have been able to get where they are if it wasn’t for human trafficking.At this point we don’t even really need a fence because of what the border’s turned into.
It used to be dehydration and the occasional rogue “coyote” now it is ending up in a mass grave outside some nameless border town.
November 2, 2010:
(Thanks imahawk for introducing me to that one)
I can see that.
The Community Organizer has:
- sued a US state (Arizona) who even tried to find out who its illegal invaders were during routine police questioning
- sent Arizona 30 troops for its border when it asked for 3,000+, and then rubbed salt in the wound by placing signs in the desert telling American citizens to stay out of there because it was dangerous
- harassed Arizona's best sherriff with civil rights charges and other nonsense because the illegal lobby resented how effective he was
- stopped construction of the border fence
- conspired with Harry Reid to put an amnesty clause into the Senate Defense Bill (along with a sodomy promotion clause)
- nudged ICE, DHS, and the FBI to turn away from enforcing laws against illegals, and instead focus on "right-wing extremists"

I don't see much compliance in 20-40 M illegal immigrants from south of the border. They may support the dems now, many, because it gets the foot in the door, but their loyalties do not extend to the dems, rather to themselves and their "race", as it were.
STFU already Obama.
Somehow the USA Chamber of Commerce, which sends $$$ to the GOP, is one of the master agents in driving Immigration Reform.
The real estate and builders are also driving this. The excuse is cheap labor cuts the price of homes. In reality the real benefit goes to developers. After 8 years in construction, I can tell you the industry is up to its eyes in corruption.
Its the job of We the People to make him and every Congresscritter in DC RUN from it!!!!!
Not even the Hispanic Congressional Caucus would take this to the floor for a vote right now.
Liberalism running on fumes. Ellis Island nostalgia from ideologues, materialist marxist economic voodoo from supposed conservatives, taboo enforcment from cult minders who shout “racist” at a drop of a hat do not make an “elite.”
He can’t walk away from something he’s never walked towards.
Exactly. Hussein wants 20 million new “Americans” who neither know or care about the principals upon which our nation was founded.
Ohaha's carefully laid plans for installing a permanent Dem Majority w/ illegals----bombed bigtime last Nov: Ohaha was heavly invested in the NJ gubernatorial race---one of only two statewide 2009 races w/ VA.
OBAMA WAS DESPERATE FOR DEM CORZINE TO WIN W/ ILLEGAL VOTES--- Obama put the power of the WH machine behind Corzine.
The NY Times reported :
(a) every TV ad Corzine put on the air was being screened by Obama's WH team.
(b) Corzine's aides gave the WH daily briefings.
(c) Obamas pollsters took over for Corzines polling team, and,
(d) White House operatives were on the ground for internal strategy sessions,
Vote-starved Democrats rigged the election with latino votes (so they thought)
(e) White House operatives were orchestrating obscure pep rallies with Latinos (kept secret from voters),
(f) Corzine had a "Peruvian Pac" endorsing him.
(g) Ohaha campaigned in the state three times, Biden was there twice. Ohaha TV ads ran relentlessly.
(h) Corzine promised to give illegals driving credentials & in-state tuition.
(i) Corzine sucked up to illegal immigrants and REFUSED to enforce current immigration laws
(j)Corzine formed a Blue Ribbon committee of hypenates using tax dollars to mine votes for Corzine.
(k)Also sucking up to illegals was Sen Robert Menendez, a Corzine campaigner.

NEW JERSEY IS IDENTITY FRAUD CENTRAL FOR LATINOS
Two Texans busted in bogus ID operation in NJ
NORTH BERGEN, NJ -- July 21, 2006 -- Pelcastre brothers, Angel and Jorge, Dallas, Texas, were a walking threat to US national security, expert document forgers who, for a few thousand dollars, could give anyone a new identity, authorities said. The Texas brothers turned a NJ hotel room into a business office and were readying a massive cache of fake Social Security cards for delivery to a local NJ identity broker.
The Texas brothers were a "one-stop shop" for a myriad of fake US documents, including birth certificates, Social Security cards, driver's licenses for any state in the US, passports and resident alien cards, said state police. Officers happened upon two cars bearing Texas plates in a NJ hotel parking lot. Authorities wouldn't identify the NJ hotel by name for fear it would spark retribution. The Drug Interdiction Task Force, regularly runs checks.
The Texas brothers were followed to a NJ office supply store nearby where they purchased computer supplies. Officers then followed the Texans to a NJ storage facility in Secaucus, NJ, where the Texans loaded several boxes into a car. One of them stood lookout. Authorities approached the Texas brothers when they returned to the NJ hotel and questioned them separately. The Texas brothers consented to a search.
Police recovered laminating sheets with built-in security features, pages of blank documents waiting for fake names and information, finished documents, computers and software to create the fake IDs.
All told, the haul was worth about $500,000 on the street. Police also recovered $6,000 in cash, which was the first payment from a NJ fake document broker for a shipment of 500 Social Security cards.
AND THIS The winning Republican Lt Governor candidate, former County Sheriff Kim Guadagno, had applied for the federal 287(g) program, which sought to question every inmate coming to the County jail about his/her immigration status, regardless of the offense. Then-Sheriff Guadagno said she wanted to ensure that "illegal criminals" were not unduly released for fear of further harm to the community. The 287(g) program would provide the Sheriff with personnel and tools to punish individuals being held at the County jail (even if they do not meet the criteria set forth by Corzine's sucking up to illegals).
Illegals lacerated Sheriff Guadagno for political pandering and for scouting incidents of indictable offenses such as driving under the influence by undocumented immigrants.
She won state office, anyway.
And the Dems intend to co-opt them the same way they have co-opted the black vote -- thru pay-offs to racist organizations (e.g.,La Raza) and racist agitators.
