President Obama says immigration is his major second-term priority, on par with his push for health care in his first term, according to an interview aired Sunday that continues to boost the issue to the top of the political conversation.

“Fixing our broken immigration system is a top priority. I will introduce legislation in the first year to get that done,” Mr. Obama told NBC’s “Meet the Press” host David Gregory, who had asked the president what the second-term equivalent would be to his all-encompassing push for health care during his first term.
Obama says immigration reform will be priority - Washington Times

I guess jobs for the 23 million unemployed/underemployed citizens will just have to wait. Perhaps that insignificant issue will be addressed during the final year of his presidency. That is, barring another more pressing issue involving the "new" illegal aliens who will surely flock to our shores.

Personally I think it's a slap in the face to the millions of unemployed Americans that we are even talking about giving amnesty to people who have no right whatsoever to be here. It's like they're telling us how unimportant we are...as if we needed reminding.

Indeed it is a slap in the face. It's beyond belief that he would actually make amnesty for millions of illegal aliens a greater priority than jobs for his own suffering citizens. But, he must keep his globalist masters happy.

It's not just him, it's all of them pandering to a lobby of people who shouldn't even be here. It's not a priority just because La Raza says it is. There are endless groups with endless agendas, all of whom think their pet issue should be a priority. That doesn't make it so.

I think La Raza's views border on treason and any politician who supports amnesty will never again receive my vote.

The pandering is one of the main reasons I became an Independent after being a lifelong Democrat. Both parties are competing to see who can get the most Hispanic votes by selling this country to illegals. It's sickening. I have no doubt amnesty will pass, and at least 30 million illegals will be offered a path to citizenship. Then, the floodgates will open at historic proportions. This will prove to be the final chapter.

This "immigration reform" wouldn't be such a bad thing if the resulting product was different. Mexico has lots of very bright youth that are going through college and trade schools that wait a little while before getting married and having children. They are productive and beneficial to their society. They are Mexico's future leaders and the one's that are being counted on to make the country prosperous and take it through the 21st century. They are Mexico's abundantly growing middle class.

Sadly, the ones described above are not the ones flocking to the United States. The ones we're receiving are the ones that can't even cut it in their own country. The poor and illiterate underclass who's main function, if not outright goal, is to pop out as many babies as possible, while at the same time enjoying American freebies and sending all their earnings back to Mexico helping their economy flourish.

Mexico's government has just gotta love the United States. What a win-win situation for them!

Of course Obama will pass amnesty. Everyone knows that the mass majority of minotities vote democrat regardless of personal or religious convictions, and there's no faster growing demographic than Hispanics. It's a gimme vote. Even if the GOP betters its relationship with minority voters they'll still be behind come election time. If amnesty is granted, never again will a republican see the oval office. Bank on it.

When he's done there won't be any "illegal" immigrants. His idea of immigration reform is probably to disband ICE and let in anyone who can get to the US.

His handlers include major corporations, enjoying obscene profits from a glut of cheap labor; other peddler and profiteers of illegal aliens, such as the Hispanic lobby and the "immigrant" union, SEIU, which, by the way, spent $70 million to help reelect Obama. And last, but certainly not least, George Soros, the Bilderberg Group, the Council on Foreign Relations, and other powerful billionaires/organizations pulling his strings.
