Obama and his administration are looking at expanding the Democratic voting bloc: By allowing more illegal immigrants to cross our borders and legalizing them. From The New York Slimes:
While acknowledging that the recession makes the political battle more difficult, President Obama plans to begin addressing the country’s immigration system this year, including looking for a path for illegal immigrants to become legal, a senior administration official said on Wednesday.
Mr. Obama will frame the new effort — likely to rouse passions on all sides of the highly divisive issue — as “policy reform that controls immigration and makes it an orderly system,” said the official, Cecilia Muñoz, deputy assistant to the president and director of intergovernmental affairs in the White House.
Mr. Obama plans to speak publicly about the issue in May, administration officials said, and over the summer he will convene working groups, including lawmakers from both parties and a range of immigration groups, to begin discussing possible legislation for as early as this fall.
Some White House officials said that immigration would not take precedence over the health care and energy proposals that Mr. Obama has identified as priorities. But the timetable is consistent with pledges Mr. Obama made to Hispanic groups in last year’s campaign.
Of course, Cecilia Muñoz was vice president for policy at the National Council of La Raza, a group hellbent on giving rights to illegals and opposing any effort to secure our borders.
Of course, you can do something about it by calling your Congressperson or Senator and demand that they vote against the DREAM Act that gives grants from taxpayers to illegals to go to college and against any other Shamnesty program that comes into play. We did it in 2007, and we can do it again if we are united and show our politicians that we do give a damn about our country.
