Obama Turns Back on his Political Base – Immigration Politics

By September 8, 2014 Politics No Comments

President Obama has once again turned his back on the huge voting bloc that helped him into office, blaming “political pressure” for his failure to act.  American Immigration Lawyers Association President Leslie Holman elaborated on the scope of this betrayal in a press release this past weekend.

The fact is, the last time Congress did anything substantive about immigration was in late 2000.  There is no “right time” for the president to do the “right thing,” and nothing to indicate that if he waits, Congress will do the right thing.
