Civil rights leaders slam Obama’s immigration amnesty proposal Civil rights leaders slam Obama's immigration amnesty proposal | The Daily Caller

The rewrite of immigration law now being pushed by President Barack Obama and major industry groups will disadvantage poor African-American communities, two Republican members of the federal U.S. Commission on Civil Rights say.

A “grant of legal status [to roughly 11 million illegal immigrants] will likely disproportionately harm lower-skilled African-Americans by making it more difficult for them to obtain employment and depressing their wages when they do obtain employment,” said the Feb. 12 letter by the commission’s vice chairwoman, Abigail Thernstrom and commissioner Peter Kirsanow.

They must condone it, they voted for him.

People sleep but awake it seems, when it is much too late.
last night when I saw the State of the Union address, I thought how different would it be with
Romney giving the speech with Ryan and Boehner sitting behind him. The reality is it wasn't Romney, and Republicans in the audience saw that also.

If you see who voted for Obama it was old people, college kids, blacks, hispanics, women, working white, rich people. Basically a cross section of the American people.

Everybody was awake this past election. The polls showed before the election that most Americans were for some form of the Dream Act. Nobody wanted to budge. Nobody wanted to give an inch. Now, with less than 100 days into his 2nd term, the President with help from congressional Republicans are planning full on CIR.

To think, just 2 years ago, all those kids wanted was to go to college. Sometimes when you are head-strong and wont give an inch, you lose more than a mile.

you are dreaming evidently.

it was no "cross section"-it was DEPENDENT people.

nobody is awake, nobody cares, and nothing is going to get fixed. that's why people voted FOR a bad economy and don't seem to have much interest in which way the economy turns-as long as they think the checks are still rolling.

there is a reason that the government is trying to take away the guns, and why drones are flying over our own country.

obama is incapable of understanding the problem, so he cannot offer a solution. Yellen is another bernanke, and the spending will not slow down, nor will the printing. it will blow up at some point and obama is just hoping that it doesn't happen on his watch-but i wouldn't take that bet.

you can tell how much the illegal immigrants have "contributed" to this country by how many more dependents we have now.

so more of a bad thing has become the new good thing, evidently.

oh, and the college thing is going to blow up too. student debt is now higher than credit card debt, and the default rate is rising rapidly.

The truth is that implementing a so-called CIR aka amnesty will be a big loss for most Americans. Too bad that the bleeding hearts, ethnocentrics and politicians williing to give away our country for votes are dominating our country today.

Well, I'm glad for his focus. Immigration reform doesn't only affect Hispanics.

Hispanics didn't have much choice. Hispanics voting democratic is also guaranteed because under the republicans they would be worse off. The truth of the matter is, Romney got the republican nominee because of his position on illegal immigration and his theory of "self-deporting." When Romney did an about face on his position of immigration after becoming the nominee, he basically fractured the white vote, and all those who want our current immigration laws enforced. Romney would have secured more votes if he continued his stance on enforcing our current immigration laws. But, as usual he flip flopped.

WASHINGTON — No sooner did President Barack Obama and a group of senators separately outline proposals to revamp the nation’s immigration system than the phone lines on several African-American-oriented talk radio shows heated up with callers blasting the plans.
They shouldn't have voted for Obama.

Immigration reform: bring back the laws for immigration of 1964.

Agreed. In many ways LBJ ruined this country. However, I believe the original National Origins Act, allowed an unlimited amount of Mexicans to come to this country; Mexico I don't think had any kind of quota.
