Obama is a lawyer. As a matter of fact, he is surrounded by lawyers. His cabinet, his advisors, Senator Harry Reid, John Kerry, and even his wife are lawyers, just to name a few. It is the party of lawyers.
Along with Labor Unions, law firms are HUGE contributors to democrats.
But, we know, of course, that gigantic contributors don't reach deep into their pockets without expecting something in return. We have elections coming up in a little over three months from now. Then in a couple of years, another presidential election.
BIG MONEY has got to be raised and you can only do that with "promises".
So, what is Obama promising.
I'm going to focus on just the lawyers in this OP, although I think Big Labor Unions are on his list of promises as well.
If you have been following the issues regarding the illegal mass influx of women, children, teens, and others from Central America, you know that they are requiring a great deal of justice and legal advice. It is a multi-level process from understanding current laws, finding loopholes around the existing law, helping with documentation, advising on issues of legal procedures, and even helping in the acquisition of benefits.
When you hear this administration or any other parties weighing in on this angle of immigration saying, "such-and-such a law firm is offering their services pro bono", meaning free to the recipient of said services, you need to be aware that THE LAWYERS ARE GETTING PAID WITH YOUR MONEY. Yes, their service is free to the illegal immigrant, but the lawyer or law firm is most likely getting paid through the grant process. The government agency provides the money to a funding source grantee who then dishes it out to the grantee of their choosing.

Time to pay back favors. I hear Chicago AND Hawaii are most willing to take on these "poor immigrant children".....you know...out of the goodness of their hearts.
Some of the country’s biggest temp agencies and high profile companies regularly delegate hiring and employment services to a network of underground labor brokers that charge workers obligatory fees for rides to their jobs and to cash checks. The fees push workers incomes below the minimum wage. That’s according to a new investigation by ProPublica and Marketplace, which ran a multi-part series this week on the practice.
