Obama pledges to pursue immigration reform in second term

 

Obama vowed in an interview with Univision to pursue comprehensive immigration reform and attacked Romney and GOP lawmakers, saying they would oppose his efforts.

President Obama promised to pursue immigration reform in his second term, but said Republicans in Congress may keep him from succeeding.

“I can promise that I will try to do it in the first year of my second term,” Obama said in an interview with Univision set to air on Sunday. “I want to try this year. The challenge we've got on immigration reform is very simple. I've got a majority of Democrats who are prepared to vote for it, and I've got no Republicans who are prepared to vote for it.”

The president also took a shot at Mitt Romney, his likely Republican opponent in the fall, for supporting Arizona’s controversial anti-illegal immigration law.

“We now have a Republican nominee who said that the Arizona laws are a model for the country; that - and these are laws that potentially would allow someone to be stopped and picked up and asked where their citizenship papers are based on an assumption.”

Univision reporter Enrique Acevedo interjected to describe such stops as “racial profiling.”

“Very troublesome,” Obama continued Scissors-32x32.pngohmy.png

Is this the half white Obama speaking or the half black?

How does he explain his anti-Zimmerman anti-Hispanic position?

I'm guessing it's the half black O, since he has seven months left in THIS term in which he apparently plans to do NOTHING about immigration reform.

He may have already spoken to La Raza in this confident manner
