immigration reform in second term
The Hill -- 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.
Blog author's comments - I can imagine the many things Obama will try to do if he wins a second term with no worry about reelection.
Obama views illegals as future Democratic Party voters. This is only one of many reasons why he has to be stopped in November. This is a must win election for the Republican Party and for the future of America.
Obama said, “I’ve got no Republicans who are prepared to vote for it (immigration reform)." Of course not, there would be a guaranteed influx of millions of lifetime handouts to lifetime liberal voters.
