President Obama plans to unveil a “blueprint” on Tuesday of what he wants Congress to include in a comprehensive immigration reform bill, according to senior administration officials.Unless they have a suicide pact, the GOP would be nuts to go along with this nonsense. Of course they'll be called racist, but what else is new?
Obama is scheduled to visit El Paso, Texas, with Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano as part of the White House’s increased efforts to return immigration reform to the national spotlight.
A senior administration official told reporters in a conference call Monday evening that Obama’s renewed push for an immigration bill was not merely a political move attempting to paint Congress as the inhibitor and the White House as the doer in the eyes of Latino voters ahead of the 2012 elections.
“While it may be true that there are significant obstacles in Congress, we believe the American people expect the policymakers to do their job,” said an official. “So we do not accept the argument that because there are some in Congress who are unwilling to act that we ought to just wash our hands of trying to get this done.”
Americans are hurting economically and there's absolutely no desire for amnesty. Then again, the public's opposition to anything never deterred the left from trying to shove it down our throats. Obama realizes independents have largely abandoned him and is desperate to add new voters to his party. It's all quite obvious.
