President Obama keeps saying he is serious about fixing immigration. You can expect him to say it again at the National Hispanic Prayer Breakfast in Washington on Friday morning. He will likely say it again next week, if his twice-postponed meeting with Congressional leaders to discuss immigration reform finally takes place.
This profusion of promises has not led to any results. Inaction and the passing of time have only increased the frustration of those who have been counting on Mr. Obama to deliver something on immigration reform — a plan, a timetable, the outlines of a bill.
Mr. Obama needs to break the stalemate on immigration. And he needs to do it soon.

With the millions of Unemployed Americans, yep.. What a great time to impose rewards for Criminals that crossed into this country Illegally..

This would also set up Obama to be a one-term President.. Is that the goal of the New York Times?

The pattern of lying soaring speech followed by just the opposite behavior of lying soaring speech is beginning to catch up with the left wing radical Maobama.

Yes: Obama needs to do something about illegal immigration.

#1: start enforcing our laws pertaining to the above criminal losers.

#2: do away with the Anchor Baby loophole.

#3: make English mandatory for all official business in the USA with the exception of public health/safety issues.

Obama might do this his second term, but right now he won't mess with it. He probably wants to get re-elected.
