Posted on 07/17/2014 4:03:40 AM PDT by markomalley
Yesterday, the Hispanic Congressional Caucus took a trip to the White House to give Obama a message: don't back down. With the added attention to the border crisis, the Caucus is concerned Obama will not be as "bold" now that the country is focused on the humanitarian crisis at the border.
Theyve been weaved together to such a point that the children on the border are now the cannon fodder for fighting the president on anything he might want or any executive order he might take, said Democratic Rep. Raúl Grijalva. It panics people. They worry about their elections and its being exploited well politically. Ideally they are separated. I dont think right now, given the context and the atmosphere, its going to be pretty hard.
Rep. Luis Gutierrez complained that the Democrats have allowed Republicans to make the first move on immigration and rather Obama should make "broad, expansive and generous" measures.
Rep. Joaquín Castro said Members of the Hispanic Caucus feel they should have their day in court. We hope that [Obama] agrees These kids are fleeing from horrible and violent situations in their home countries, and for those reasons we hope they have their day in court.
But Rep. Henry Cuellar broke with the group to join Texas Sen. John Cornyn and introduced a bill to modify the 2008 bill that treats those children arriving here the same as children from Mexico, which would expedite their court hearings, returning them to their country.
The future for black D party voters is that of a Hispanic/gay/oligarch boot on their faces forever. Too bad suckers
How dare the DOJ permit and organization to exist on public funded properties that is based on preferential membership or participation based on the race or color of ones’ skin!
Horrific racism. Same for the “black caucus”
What these idiotas don’t understand is those things that be done through executive order, can also be undone by executive order. Hasta luego..
