Obama looking to give new life to immigration reform by Peter Nicholas Los Angeles Times March 04 2010 reports
...the White House has discussed prospects for reviving a major overhaul of the nation's immigration lawsâ€¦Obama took up the issue privately with his staff Monday in a bid to advance a bill through Congress before lawmakers become too distracted by approaching midterm elections.
Senator Lindsey Graham (Scalawag â€“SC) has needless to say rushed to help:
Obama and members of his Domestic Policy Council outlined ways to resuscitate the effort in a White House meeting with two senators — Democrat Charles E. Schumer of New York and Republican Lindsey Graham of South Carolina — who have spent months trying to craft a bill. According to a person familiar with the meeting, the White House may ask Schumer and Graham to at least produce a blueprint that could be turned into legislative language. The basis of a bill would include a path toward citizenship for the 10.8 million people living in the U.S. illegally.
Significantly, the rest of the MSM has ignored this story almost completely, although the Washington Post did supply some covering fire in Obama risks alienating Latinos with lack of immigration reform By Joshua Hoyt Friday March 5th.
(This is an unusually arrogant demand that Obama and the US generally abandon any efforts to restrain the growth in the Hispanic population or its access to taxpayer-benefits, brandishing the Hispanic vote myth. Hoyt is Director of something called the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights and a bad actor. As usual nowadays with propaganda of this type, the quality of some of the hostile comments is far superior to the original article, for instance Norski 3/5/2010 4:24:41 PM:
It is evident those Americans who work in the lower end of the pay spectrum pay the highest price due to an Illegal Immigration driven oversupply of workers. And the price is falling wages and unemployment. Free labor markets do not work when a huge global supply of under employed and unemployed labor meets the limited supply of US jobs.
Ask Joshua Hoyt why he cares more about illegal aliens than Americans)
Very likely the usual Democratic MSM cheerleaders are silent because, knowing the employment situation and what the public thinks about the economic effect of illegals, they cannot believe Obama is serious. They may be hoping this is just an Hispanic-appeasing feint, a possiblility raised by 24ahead.com.
Time to read Steve Sailerâ€™s book, guys. It's all there. Obama is crazed with narcissism and conceit, cannot envisage being denied, and is primarily motivated by wanting to benefit other races at the expense of whites.
