No, President Obama, we are not a nation of immigrants. Most of us were born here, as were our parents. Furthermore, there are no “undocumented” immigrants. One is either here with permission (legal) or here in violation of our laws (illegal). At least be honest while pandering.

WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama says those opposing a pathway to citizenship for the millions of undocumented immigrants living in the U.S. shouldn't have amnesia about how the country began. He says America is a nation of immigrants.

I see, so those of us who oppose amnesty for illegal aliens are not honoring the past of our ancestors who came here legally? Obama, are you living in the twilight zone?

Because he and the rest of the pro-illegals are making this a Hispanic issue when it is not. Illegal immigration is against the law and affects everyone of us.

Is Obama planning on attending Hispanic events daily leading up to the election?

I have read a lot of blogs written by Hispanic folks and they don't seem to be very fond of Obama.....Most of them are sick of his lying ways as well.

The only lies that I know of that most Hispanics are sick of is that they didn't their amnesty as promised by Obama.

I suppose it's just much easier pandering to the group that has seen nothing but more government handouts and more good jobs and opportunities than to go speak to a group of unemployed Americans or Americans losing their homes to foreclosure.

I don't think Obama is going to get the same applause from American groups. It seems absurd that he seems only to be campaigning for the foreigners here illegally - but when you look at the way things are for the American people with floods, droughts and fires and no money from the government to assist them, plus the skyrocketing gas and food prices, you can kind of see why.

I don't think Obama wants to show up in Detroit or some of those desperate cities of Americans.
