Skip to comments.Obama: Time running short for House on immigration reform
Posted on 05/13/2014 11:50:16 AM PDT by lowbridge
President Obama on Tuesday said the House has a very narrow window of two or three months to move forward on immigration reform.
The closer we get to midterm elections, the harder it will be to get things done, Obama said during a meeting with more than 40 law enforcement officials Tuesday at the White House.
Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, who is undertaking an internal review of how the White House might alter deportation procedures unilaterally, was among the administration officials attending the meting.
The president tailored his remarks to the audience, arguing that having to focus on immigration enforcement was stopping police from chasing gang bangers and going after violent criminals.
Our broken immigration system makes it harder for our law enforcement agencies to do their job, Obama said.
It was the latest in a series of meetings between Obama and stakeholder groups as the White House tries to whip up support for immigration reform.

"The bravest are surely those who have the clearest vision
of what is before them, glory and danger alike,
and yet notwithstanding, go out to meet it."
Notice how they say “immigration reform” in the most generic way possible
Shut up, Squatter.
How come the Demonuts never pass an immigration reform and it always has to be done by the GOP ?
What’s the rush Barry? Are you afraid the invaders will go home? I don’t think so. You’ve got all the time in the world to destroy America. Knock off your “I want it now!” crap.
He starts ignoring the law? Or making up his own ‘laws’?
He’s ALREADY doing both, so what’s the difference?
“Obama: Time running short for House on immigration reform”
Well, at least there’s some good news today!
Yeah, he needs them legal before the 2014 mid term elections. If the GOP does this, they are toast.
Plenty of opportunity in the Lame Duck....
The president tailored his remarks to the audience, arguing that having to focus on immigration enforcement was stopping police from "chasing gang bangers and going after violent criminals."A few points here. The groups of illegal aliens and gangbangers are not mutually exclusive.
Local cops are tasked with chasing gang-bangers and violent criminals, and according to federal courts, have no business enforcing immigration; so there is no "competition" between those two duties.
Federal law enforcement, in particular immigration enforcement other than border enforcement, is deliberately slacking under orders. IOW, the feds aren't focusing on immigration enforcement, either.
Not that the public knows any of this, and not that the press will call him out on his stupid argument and failure to uphold the law.
Looking forward to “time’s up”. Can’t happen soon enough.
Why on earth does this issue have “time” affiliated with it, anyway?
Is Mexico going away? Will we run out of border? Is there some special transgendered status they will no longer be able to change to? Are we running out of drivers licenses? What about domestically made tacos? Are they going out of print?
Obama is not trustworthy. Passing laws with him in power is foolish.
Why doesn’t Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson,just do the job he is hired to do ? He is putting into the system his own personal beliefs about how he thinks the laws must be and he is not going by what the laws actually say and how he is required to follow these laws passed by Congress.He wants to make up or alter the laws to suit him and his goal of this is really what the laws should be
No one who is sane or has half a brain listens to or heeds a word that comes out Obama’s lie telling mouth!!! He’s done...he is toast, “Lame Duck” it’s called!!! Very few Democrats running for office or re-election want to be seen anywhere near this miserable, failed, un-American, lie telling, POTUS!!!
