Michelle Obama to Latinos: ‘We cannot afford to wait on Congress’ for immigration
Washington Times ^ | 07/13/2014 | By Cheryl K. Chumley

Posted on 07/13/2014 6:49:00 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

First lady Michelle Obama grabbed the political reins during a speech to the League of United Latin American Citizens in New York City, telling the crowd of admirers not to worry — that her husband wouldn’t wait on Congress to take action on immigration reform.

“So make no mistake about it — we have to keep on fighting as hard as we can on immigration,” Mrs. Obama said, to a cheering crowd, Breitbart reported. “And as my husband has said, he’s going to do whatever administrative action it takes to fix this broken system.”

Mrs. Obama then vowed that Congress wouldn’t get in the way of her presidential husband’s hopes for immigration change.

“We cannot afford to wait on Congress to lift up our next generation,” she said, Breitbart reported. “We can’t afford to wait on anybody when it comes to our kids’ future. Your grandparents and parents didn’t wait for opportunities to come to them. No, they packed up their families and moved to this country for a better life.” Shortly after, Mrs. Obama began to list the civil rights offenses that plagued the Hispanic community at America’s hands in recent decades.

Mrs. Fat Butt rules the roost, I guess. Not surprising.

She has his cajones in her purse all the time anyway.

Here is the kill part “We cannot afford to wait on Congress to lift up our next generation,” she said, Breitbart reported. “We can’t afford to wait on anybody when it comes to our kids’ future

.......OUR kids future?

OUR KIDS?!?!

So America IS the world now?

Are Mongolian Children our kids too?

How about German Kids or South African Kids?

Though I suspect I know they answer. I am sure she doesn't mean "America's" Children. She means the Democrat Parties Next Generation. This is the next Generation of Democrat Voters.

Those two sentences speak volumes.

“”We can’t afford to wait on anybody when it comes to our kids’ future””

Whose kids’ future would that be, Michelle?

Is the private school their kids go to going to admit some of the ILLEGALS arriving in our country right now with their diseases? They can’t afford the tuition? I don’t see that as a problem for the bozo with the phone and the pen!!! Get them admitted and write a check!!! FROM YOUR CHECKBOOK, jerk!

“”‘No Mexicans Allowed’ signs hung outside of restaurants and storefronts. Latinos often couldn’t own property, or serve on a jury. And if you walked into a public building, you’d often see not two water fountains, but three — one white, one black and one brown.”””

I guess our history books forgot to take pictures of the signs that included BROWN...Where does she get her information from or does she just make it up?

It is NOT the Obamas who are the problem. When are you folks on here going to wake up??? The wealthy enablers behind the scenes are pushing this immigration and one needs to determine the WHY behind all of this. It basically boils down to the need for cheap labor and constituency. It is to create votes they are losing by alienating those who are from here with values.

Think of who is going to benefit by the massive influx of illegal aliens with basically a catholic background. Politicians who need their votes, businesses who need their cheap labor, Federal agencies that stand to benefit by dealing with them and the catholic church which needs their loyalty and support. It is pretty obvious to me.

Getting angry at the Obamas and failing to go after the enablers is a lack of correct thinking that is beyond description. It is time to start looking at the REAL sources of why this is all happening.

Everything she says is ridiculous and most of it is made up. If “Latinos” couldn’t serve on juries, it was generally because they couldn’t speak or read English and often were not citizens, and in the old days, you had to be able to function in English and had to be a citizen to be on a jury. The same with property: they often weren’t citizens or had no connection with US banking and couldn’t get loans.

Was there discrimination and bigotry? Yes, of course, and there still is. But what in the world do the Obamas get out of stirring it up? Division is their middle name, and of course, we do have to remember that Satan is the father of lies - and discord.

Aside from that, what is Moochelle doing even talking about this issue? (Note - I think she’s going to be the Dems’ presidential candidate in 2016, or at least is positioning herself for consideration.)

PLEASE! Most of us now are ready to commit Hari Kari. That would absolutely push us over the edge.. Makes my head hurt to even think about it.

I think we can correctly say that neither of these bumpkins received enough attention as children. What was the line from Full Metal Jacket? That fits them!

If we carry that far enough back in history, that statement would be talking about the pilgrims. I thought they were evil Europeans for taking the land from the Indians. Thus the rest of the immigrants were more evil Europeans who moved here and messed everything up by owning slaves, keeping women down, using child labor, causing global warming etc. You can't be proud of your heritage and preach white guilt at the same time.

SO there queen moochele is telegraphing that they will just go around Congress. And what is Congress going to do about that? They had better step up to the plate or else they may never get a chance to. Baraq and his fellow travelers are on a tear and don’t show any signs of letting up.

Read between the lines there Congress, repubs and dims.
The dimrats who enable baraq are in more danger than they know. Look at what happens to the useful idiots after a revolution. Same with the enabling media.

That’s the problem. The Obama’s see Congress as a duma - a rubber stamp organization there to make the powers-that-be look good.

Either Obama doesn’t understand this country - and our system of freedom and checks and balances or he’s some whacked out communist. What a horror.

“Immigration reform”...still a very general term like “hope and change”, could mean something different to each individual who all end up demanding something they know nothing about. So what specific reforms are they proposing?
