Immigration Reform 2011?

Immigration Reform 2011? – U.S. President Barack Obama has made it clear that the next thing on his agenda is immigration reform. The topic has always been a controversial one, but has been even more controversial in recent weeks after Arizona passed a bill that allowed police to ask for immigration documentation from individuals that they deemed ‘suspicious.’ Opposition to the bill has stated that they believe that the bill leaves too much room for racial profiling, and that other restrictions need to be put into place if the legislation is to be successful.

Obama said on Wednesday that he would like to begin work this year on legislation overhauling the federal immigration system. It may be a coincidence that his comments came on Cinco de Mayo, of all holidays. However, they reaffirmed the notion that the White House is willing to work on a long term solution for a problem that has gone on for far too long. Latino groups have called for Obama to deliver on his campaign promise of making immigration reform in the United States a top priority. Some went as far as to say that he simply was not doing enough.

Obama recently stated that “there may not be an appetite” in Congress to debate another highly controversial issue just after health care and financial regulation legislation was recently passed by Congress. The midterm elections that are scheduled for this upcoming November may also hinder the ability to reach a decision on the subject, as candidates are gearing up to please their largest supporters one last time before the upcoming election.
It is not clear when the discussion will begin, or who will head the discussion, but it does appear that Obama would be interested in working on immigration reform throughout his second year in office.

  1. Most analysts agree that the Dems will lose House and Senate seats in November. How will losing seats to enforcement only Republicans improve the chances of passing immigration reform after the midterm elections? The simple answere is that it won’t and Obama knows it. He is throwing the immigrants under the bus.

  2. thats why the spanish people have to keep voting for the dems, and even if the reps do win the senate and house which btw is unlikely, i know they’ll lose seats but not that many. The reps still have to do immigration reform because more than 60 percent of the nation believes that there needs to be an immigration reform

    • I think your estimate of 60% is grossly over estimated. If the number was so high than immigration reform wouldn’t be an issue to day because it would have already passed. You wouldn’t have states drawing up their own immigration enforcement laws to protect their states. Now remember immigration reform is different than immigration enforcement. I would venture to say that in this nation the people who want immigration enforcement is at around 65-70%. The other 30% are politicians trying to wrangle a latino vote, latinos themselves, and progressives who want no border at all.

  3.

    • Mexico is like that because its goverment not because of the people. I own a 63 employee electrical company and 57/63 are Hispanics. They show more effort than any other american that i have hired. People like you are the ones that are mad because ya’ll feel like they are stealing something from you. Well to be honest thats not the situation. All they want is a better life for their family’s. So back off buddy and keep your racial profiling in your crappy mouth.

      • Bottom line at the end of the day the LAW is the law.
        and to come here and live here means you have to respect that.

        And U.S. government is corrupt like mexico.

        (People like you are the ones that are mad because ya’ll feel like they are stealing something from you. Well to be honest thats not the situation)

        THAT is the situation, your taking from this country in several ways.

        And it’s not fair to the people standing in line trying to do things right.

        All this racism talk is psychobabble, TO try to take your attention OFF the real issue.

      • Let me tell you the U.S.A. government is the kings of corruption. So I don’t buy what you are saying john!
        The law is the law,and to come here and live here means you have to respect that..
        And you are taking from this country.
        And it’s not right to bypass the law and jump in front of the people trying to do things right.
        And to say (All they want is a better life for their family’s)That’s what we are trying to do too in our own country we are not invading other countries to achieve it.
        And anytime someone says anything that go’s against your invasion plans or your agenda, you scream racism.

    Here are the facts
    71% of illegal immigrant are on some kind of welfare program

    $150000000000 that’s one hundred fifty billion dollars a year that cost the American people

    $5.5 billion in the state of Florida alone each year.

    You Do Take And You Lie And You Know This

    • in fairness, where you got the 71% of non-legal resident on some sort of welfare? dont you know that there are perhaps equal number of residents that are in the same program? one has to look deeper over their own noses, majority of non-legal residents are also paying taxes, when they buy goods at the store they pay tax, etc etc…and this one thing that Rick Sanchez, the former CNN anchor has always emphasize, non-legal residents are paying taxes through ITIN, and they dont get anything from it as yet, it goes to the govt coffers for use by those with SSN…just think of it guys…a lot of milking cows there are!!!

    • MORON!!! GET UR FACTS STRAIGHT BITCH!

      I PAY MORE IN TAXES THAN WHAT UR WHITE ASS DOES! YES IM ILLEGAL BUT I PAY INTO THE SYSTEM!!

      I BET UR MAD CUZ THEY CUT DOWN UR WELFARE
