President Barack Obama is postponing a key meeting with immigration reform stakeholders because of a scheduling conflict.

The meeting with top lawmakers and advocacy groups was originally set for June 8 but is now being rescheduled for June 17. A White House spokesman said the postponement is because of the president’s travel schedule.

“The president is inviting a small group of bipartisan Senate and House leaders on the immigration issue to the White House for a meeting to have an honest discussion of the issues, identify areas of agreement, and areas where we still have work to do,” said the White House aide.

Obama has signaled support for discussions on comprehensive immigration reform this year but not for passing legislation. That sentiment was conveyed in the statement given by his spokesman Wednesday: “The meeting is intended to launch a policy conversation, with the hope of beginning the debate in earnest later this year.”

“I know that comprehensive immigration reform is a priority for all of you. It is also a priority for President Obama. We all agree that we need immigration reform that will keep our country safe, reunite families, protect workers, meet our economic needs, and have a pathway to legalization,” Pelosi said.

I think we should legalize all 20 million of them, including the ones that are in jail, in accordance with the provisions listed below:

1. Each member of congress in favor of amnesty will agree to sign an affidavit equally dividing up the number of illegal aliens and taking physical custody, financial, and moral responsibility for their new family members and any offspring that they reproduce, throughout their life time.

2. They must agree to build homes for and live with their new family members in gated communities so that they can all live as a cohesive unit.

3. They must be responsible for them learning English, finding work, paying their taxes and never becoming a burden to the American taxpayers.

4. They must be responsible for providing any and all food, educational costs and medical bills of their new family members.

5. They will be solely and financially responsible for any costs incurred during the lifetime of their new family members. No: medical, educational costs, welfare, food stamps, section 8, interpreters, jail costs, or legal fees will ever be funded by taxpayers.

If they want amnesty for them, then let them live amongst and bare sole responsibility for them.

This is an update on the much-publicized immigration reform meeting. Do you have a problem with this?

JDubsMom,
I wanted to give you a rep point, but I must spread some around. Good idea and I hope you do send it to Congress.

Thanks grammy it's the thought that counts! I am thinking of sending it, if nothing else it might make them realize how ridiculous they are.

Dream on TF. We all know that politicians would rather die and go to hell than put their money where their mouths are.

But thank you for the compliment just the same.
