And Romney came out and condemned it...wait, that never happened.

Obama Immigration | Breaking News for Black America

African Americans represent the demographic that is most supportive of President Obama, yet they are the most devastated by the effects of mass incarceration.

With his announcement on illegal immigration, Obama has effectively granted immunity to nearly 800,000 illegal immigrants who clearly broke the law. All the while, he is unwilling to seek the release of thousands of men and women who were sentenced under drug laws that even the president knows to be clearly unjust. He made campaign promises to black Americans that he would fight diligently on their behalf to end the war on drugs, but has shown the courage of a toothless ***** cat who’s had his claws removed.

The time for patience with the Obama Administration should be over, and African Americans who’ve deluded themselves into believing that their first Black president loves them need to take a step back and look at reality.
Conservative employers love the dirt-cheap labor. Who are you kidding with this long inane post?

Imagine -- with such chronic high unemployment rates for Americans, Obama can only come up with yet another work visa to lovingly dole out to his beloved illegals. Giving away American jobs for some votes he expects to win by this in November.
At the end of the day while Black youth have the highest unemployment rate of any group, White Americans have lost their jobs (by the millions) run out of unemployment and continue to lose their homes. At the end of the day the race issue needs to die. Americans of all races on many fronts are suffering. Keep in mind plenty of White people voted for Obama as well, to put the onus of getting him in and out of office based on the Black vote is ludicris at best, delusional at worst.

I work with plenty of White liberals who love Obama and have stated to me on many occasions that they plan to vote for him again.

Youth Unemployment: More Than Seven In 10 US Teens Jobless In Summer


By race and income, blacks, Hispanics and teens in lower-income families were least likely to be employed in summer jobs. The figure was 14 percent for African-American teens when their family income was less than $40,000 a year, compared to 44 percent of white teens with family income of $100,000-$150,000. Hispanics in families making less than $40,000 also faced difficulties (19 percent employed), while middle-class black teens with family income of $75,000-$100,000 did moderately better, at 28 percent employed.

I do find it real sad so many of our "Black" posters here on CDF don't care about other Blacks who can't find work cause of the millions of illegal aliens in the US.

I have a huge problem with illegal aliens too and I ain't Black.

I know Americans should come together but the hispanics don't apparently mind that their unemployment rates are actually quite high and they're simply celebrating with great glee that their "ethnicity" has won yet again.

But there's a problem with disadvantaged black youth are employed at only 14%, white youth is also struggling but not nearly as much.

I'm a "pick yourself up by the bootstraps" type -- but when Obama has cut off those bootstraps, now what for these people who are struggling?

they did it to HR OPM and HR K12. leap frog laws. giving cuts in line to dead beats behind on student loans to be teachers, and hiring afhganistan vet spouses first for any fed jobs. giving of citizenship to illegals that came here as kids. all of these special laws designed to walk all over the agencies created to ensure fair employment and fair immigration policy.
these things hurt alot of us but buy alota votes
