Obama 'Absolutely Convinced' Immigration Law Will Pass This Year
By Kathleen Hennessey and Christi Parsons May 3, 2013
MEXICO CITY -- President Obama said Friday that he is absolutely convinced Congress will pass new immigration laws this year, projecting more confidence in his ability to work with Republicans from the Mexican capital than he has shown lately at home.
In a speech to Mexican students, Obama said he has tried to lift the shadow of deportation from young people brought to the United States as children and said he wants to do more thorough comprehensive changes to U.S. immigration policy.
I am optimistic that, after years of trying, we are going to get it done this year, Obama said. Im absolutely convinced of it.
The upbeat assessment came several days after Obama openly acknowledged the roadblocks he faces on Capitol Hill. When a reporter asked at a White House press conference Tuesday if he still had the juice to get his agenda passed, Obama joked that maybe he should just pack up and go home.
But on a two-day trip to Mexico visiting President Enrique Peña Nieto, Obama has projected optimism about his chances of passing a new immigration law that will offer a pathway to citizenship for millions of people now living in the U.S. illegally.

Why wouldn’t he? He has Tea Party Favorite Rubio leading the charge.
What a vile human he is. Goes to Mexico and says this. Why am I upset, I expect nothing less from him. Yet it does upset me.
Didn’t he say the same thing about avoiding the sequester? And gun control?
Carnac The Magnificent he is not.
Just like he was sure that gun control would be on his desk by now.
A sure thing....sure..
This asshat vowed there would be no sequester during a debate with Romney. He is no credibility on ANYTHING.
What was that his predecessor said? “See you at the bill-signing”?
I’m absolutely convinced he’ll make it happen even if he has to have an E.O. to do so - “Whaaaa, you’ll do as I want or else!”
(Proverbs 16:18, FR Version)
the big push is on and anyone who talks about Benghazi will be accused of trying to take the focus off of immigration reform
Another statement soon to be “non-operative”.
He’s been so right on with his past predictions.
The liberals have to have it this year so they can start counting all the new voters.
Just this week......Throughout the Hidalgo County area that day, Border Patrol agents with the help of local police had found 230 additional immigrants suspected of being in the country illegally, bringing Mondays total to 322. That figure doesnt include the alleged smugglers.Everyone near and far is coming for amnesty.The word is outhttp://www.themonitor.com/news/local/article_bee44dbc-b39c-11e2-b228-001a4bcf6878.html
Of course it will. Barry and the ‘RATS love sticking it to Americans as quickly as they can under the cover of darkness. You have to clobber Americans before they know what hit them.

Ya Da Ya Da! Same old BS from the phoney in chief. Just as he said Gitmo will close, that his administration would be transparent, and all the other lies too much to mention.
No... in fact it will not pass. I can feel it in my bones.
This means he is absolutely sure it will NOT pass. He always tells the opposite of the truth. If he believes it’s sure to pass, then it would clear to everyone. No need to brag. That fact he’s saying this shows he’s fearful that the Boston bombing has not destroyed his chance at destroying America for all time with this idiotic Third World Stampede bill.
