Jeffrey Kaye: Immigration Reform: The Time is Now! Meets Legislative Reality

How truly pathetic, they can't see the writing from the wall....

Quote:
But, from the beginning, calls to action, announcements about forthcoming rallies and marches, and passionate pleas about the pressing need for immigration reform seemed tempered by reality.

The town hall's moderator, Angelica Salas of the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights (CHIRLA), announced that two of the invited guests whose pictures had graced the event poster - Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) and Rep. Henry Waxman (D-Los Angeles) - had scheduling conflicts and so would not be appearing (Waxman has a safe seat, but Boxer may face a serious challenge from whoever wins the GOP primary). And before Becerra showed up, Salas, clearly anticipating that the Congressman might deliver a somber caution, coached the packed room on how to respond if Becerra demonstrated any inclination to extend the battle for immigration reform beyond 2010
I truly do feel compassion for those being misguided and mislead. It's all about politics and money, and amnesty is unfavorable to anyone jumping into the ring. Americans have spoken and will be heard loud and clear in November, even to those who are now hiding...bye-bye.

Sounded like Becerra didn't dare come out and tell the truth.
This audience wouldn't have believed him anyway.
