The White House has announced that Obama will NOT "act" on any immigration reforms until *After* the elections this November.

Well with all the shouting and squealing, you would have thought he would have made these big immigration decisions by now.

I guess they either don't know what to do to make everybody happy, or they are scared stiff of fallout and major Democrat losses coming up.

But then again, *Delay* has become Obama's middle name.




Abandoning his pledge to act by the end of summer, President Barack Obama has decided to delay any executive action on immigration until after the November congressional elections, White House officials said.

The move instantly infuriated immigration advocates while offering relief to some vulnerable Democrats in tough Senate re-election contests.

Two White House officials said Obama concluded that circumventing Congress through executive actions on immigration during the campaign would politicize the issue and hurt future efforts to pass a broad overhaul.

When political considerations instead of what is good for the nation are a priority what can anyone say except how did these clowns ever get elected. By the delay I can only assume the new policy will be more of the same polarizing crap.

it's the same as with the most dire aspects of Obamacare, hold off til after the elections and get those votes before you go in with no lube.

OK.
Dude ain't eligible to run a third term? He's just fumbling/handing-off to the next incompetent, sorry, I mean,
wait...

What do I mean?

the Twenty-Second Amendment provides that "no person shall be elected to the office of President more than twice".


So, this next pres. gets to blame the woes on his predecessor? Issue of border becomes non-issue by default?

So Obama and the Democrats finally realized that what they think is good for the country (Amnesty for illegal immigrants) isn't what the people actually want, and hence knowing full well it would hurt their party to push their agenda through have decided to play petty politics. Wow, and anyone is actually shocked that the Socialist in Chief is two faced liar........pathetic. If he was Pinocchio his nose would reach from D.C. to Florida, figure it out.

They won't do anything except talk about it. Its one of those things that need to be put off. In my mind so the corporate farms, grow houses, slaughter houses, etc. can keep their undocumented workforce. If they ever got serious about deporting people the farm industry would have to pay Americans more to do the same work. So carry on, promise and deliver nothing.

If it was another aircraft carrier though, watch how fast they sign the check.

Immigration activists rip Obama's 'betrayal'


"To wait nine more weeks means that I must again look my mother in the eye and see the fear she has about living under the threat of deportation every day," said Cristina Jimenez, director of United We Dream, an advocacy group.

No Freeloaders!

More back door wisdom from Obama....



Perhaps signaling that he will soon enact executive actions to ease even more deportations, President Barack Obama said on Friday that illegal immigrants should not have to "look over their shoulder" while in the country illegally.

Mr Shoulder Pads Himself



He said, she said.

What really frustrates me is the low attention span of the American voter. The president knows the people are against amnesty by a large margin,yet he says he`s gonna ignore the will of the people and go it alone with a illegal executive order granting amnesty to millions of illegals,despite the fact there`s not enough jobs here for us Americans let alone another 10-15 million job seekers.It makes no sense either way.He either puts more of us out of work or he adds millions more to the dole. The only thing he`s doing is further crippling a already crippled economy.
Why you ask? Simple.FOR THE VOTES. He'd rather rule over a decimated shell of a country than not rule at all and that`s what dictates his actions.
Whether he does it now or later he is still stating his intentions,so why are people so dumb that they dont hold him accountable now? So frustrating.

I think he will do amnesty for all illegals. Then the country will fall into riots and civil war. It will get crazy quick. I have no doubts. There's a reason he's waiting. It's so he doesn't destroy the dem's chances with his little plans against the American people.

The op has asked what happens after the elections when it comes to immigration. It all depends on who has the majority. If the democrats take the majority, then he will push such forward. If the Republicans, it will stall out in congress and he will be powerless to do such.

This depresses me. Since the average voter has an attention span a few seconds longer than, oh, say a goldfish, they'll forget this promise and continue to vote for their own demise.

If you can't get Americans to conform, and be content to live on far less income, and be the indoctrinated cheap labor force the new socialist states desperately need to remain competitive in a global economy, you must replace them, or at least as many as you can...

After the midterms, of course.

The Obama administration announced today that it would break it’s promise to pass immigration reform until after the elections, and many immigrant groups are sorely angry at him. In order to quell the furor, Obama ran off to Chuck Todd in order to explain that it wasn’t about the midterm elections, but it was because Americans didn’t understand the reform.

Obama actually tells Chuck Todd that his immigration delay WASN’T about the midterm elections!


"because Americans didn’t understand the reform"

Sadly, many Americans have trouble understanding basic math, have pathetic reading and writing skills, and have an average attention span of seconds or less...

Isn't about the elections?

What elections?... When? What we voting for? Do we get more free stuff?

We want to do what the people don't want so we will wait until after elections so people will vote for us still. Awesome.

They always say follow the money so... What are some of the companies which have laid off 100s if not 1000s and yet are backing immigration reform ?
www.abovetopsecret.com...


"It is difficult to understand how these companies can feel justified in demanding the importation of cheap labor with a straight face at a time when tens of millions of Americans are unemployed," writes the Center for Immigration Studies, which strongly opposes the Senate Gang of Eight bill and similar measures. "The companies claim the bill is an 'opportunity to level the playing field for U.S. employers' but it is more of an effort to level the wages of American citizens."



The officials represent companies with a vast array of business interests: General Electric, The Walt Disney Company, Marriott International, Hilton Worldwide, Hyatt Hotels Corporation, McDonald's Corporation, The Wendy's Company, Coca-Cola, The Cheesecake Factory, Johnson & Johnson, Verizon Communications, Hewlett-Packard, General Mills, and many more. All want to see increases in immigration levels for low-skill as well as high-skill workers, in addition to a path to citizenship for the millions of immigrants currently in the U.S. illegally.

There's never a reason to fear doing the right thing. If this were the right thing for the country and what the American people wanted, there would be no reason to delay this action. So why wait? And even if it does hurt your party in the short term, if its the right thing to do, shouldn't you do it anyway, if you're supposedly the president of the entire country and supposed to act in the best interests of the entire country?

It seems to me that what he's doing is the wrong thing and he knows it, as does the Democrat party as a whole. Why else try to avoid accountability to the American people?
