Obama Moving “Full Steam Ahead” On Immigration Reform

At a news conference commemorating his 100th day in office, President Obama indicated that his administration is planning on moving “full steam ahead on all fronts” on immigration reform. Obama told Telemundo reporter, Lori Montenegro, that he hopes to convene working groups to start building a framework for how immigration legislation might be shaped. Obama once again stated the need for comprehensive immigration reform that brings undocumented workers out of the shadows. He also emphasized that Janet Napolitano, Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, is working on making sure that the U.S. border is secured to show Americans that the government is competent in getting results in respect to the systems which are already in place. When asked when Obama hopes to see immigration reform legislation introduced, he replied “I’d like to see the process move this year.”

    PLEASE HEKP LEGAL IMMIGRANTS CONVICTED OF MINOR CRIMES REHABILITATE THEMSELVES HERE AND GIVE THEIR CHILDREN A FAIR CHANCE

    It is about time for the bigots to grow up and to learn that discrimination is but an expression of moral decay. The bigots and the religious right zealots are the bigest chest pounding hypocrites full of hatred and desdain for human dignity. God’s creatures deserve the oportunities the American dream has offered all immigrants regardles of whether they arrived at the shores of America in the XVIIIth, the XIX, the XXth or the XXI century.

    I agree with Shellie Richards, particularly since it is my strong belief that the absence of parents is VERY likely to lead to these United States citizen children finding other “father- and mother-figures” (and a “home” and place to belong) on the streets and in gangs. Help the society improve, please. Do not hasten its decay.

    Polls show that 75% of Americans favor just and humane immigration reform. The absence of such has broken families in a country that so emphasizes family values.
    Inhuman conditions exist in too many detention prisons and there have been too many suicides as a result. Extremist violence has increased leaving innocent, productive human beings dead or mentally impaired. And it has enabled characters like Sheriff Arpaio in Maricopa county, Arizona, to take matters into their own hands and reap havoc with the human and civil rights of those subjected to his witch hunt style deportation campaign. IT’S TIME FOR A CHANGE!
