"He will also argue that those who care about this issue need to step up pressure on Congress to act, a point he has made privately in a string of meetings with business executives, evangelical leaders and Hispanic celebrities."

I see, so this is a "Hispanic" issue, Mr. Obama? Are you admitting then that most here illegally are Hispanics and that their citizen counterparts have an ethnocentric interest in all of this? Why would you side with these people?

I agree there are other nationalities of illegals.

Why is he fighting for invaders, & people that have no interest to become American? (by that I mean speak our language, learn our heritage & culture.

I think it is more like wanting to go after that "overblown" importance of the Hispanic vote now and in the future.

Why spend so much money and effort to cater to a specific group that doesn't even have a lot of political clout?

It truly is puzzling, isn't it? But then the open borders, bleeding hearts and greedy corporations are behind this also.

I wonder if he'll mention this article?

Quote:
The message, signaling the presence of the Border Patrol, was sent by a smuggler watching the groupís progress through binoculars from a hillside on the Mexican side of the border, members of the group said later. It was part of what border officials and immigrant activists say is an emerging trend in illegal border crossing ó the use of what is being called the cybercoyote.

ďIíve crossed eight times, and this is the first time theyíve directed me with my cellphone,Ē said Sandra Silva, 30, a native of Guadalajara, Mexico, who was on her way to Phoenix. ďItís like a guide through the desert.Ē
