Leaders of immigrant rights and Latino groups told reporters in a conference call on Wednesday that Obama owes his second term to Latino voters, and should repay them by passing comprehensive immigration reform.
Latino groups to Obama: You owe Latinos the election, now pass immigration reform | The Ticket - Yahoo! News


So, Obama "owes" Latinos amnesty? Do tell. I wonder what he owes the millions of non-Hispanic voters whose votes gave him a second term.

By "immigration reform" they mean allowing millions of hispanics to come here because they are hispanic. Worse, they mean allow them access to the welfare system, don't ask them to learn English and raise taxes on the middle class to support them. Selfish jerks. Why don't they make demands on the leaders of hispanic countries instead of ours?

They honestly don't think black or white votes counted in any way or had any effect on this election. On Mexican radio stations they are claiming that the Mexican vote is what has gotten Obama into the White House twice now.

Maybe they're right? Maybe all the votes made by white and black Americans were tossed into a shredder and it only matters how the illegals and other "latinos" voted. That's how even the media makes it seem.

It's absolutely mind-boggling. The MSM is now only mentioning the "Hispanic vote" as if they alone were responsible. I think it's safe to assume non-Hispanics no longer matter. But, let's see how far the next candidate can go with ONLY the Hispanic vote.

IMHO Obama will throw the pro illegal alien Hispanics under the bus: he don't need them any more to win the POTUS.

Apparently, the rest of us are just chopped liver. The arrogance of this attitude just infuriates me.

I have noticed this also. Everytime I turn on the news it is all about the Hispanic vote and how the GOP will have to give them what they want in the future (amnesty) or they are dead in the water. Disgusting! So now our politicians are to be blackmailed by a certain group?

If only the idol of the GOP secured the border way back then. I'm talking about that stalwart of American conservatism, a true American hero, the one and only amnesty loving Ronald Reagan . He could have secured the border after he passed amnesty, but he didn't. Blame Reagan for setting the US on the path its on now, ironically.

I am not hardliner on immigration but I certainly am on illegal immigration. If we have only bark and no bite why hasn't congress passed an amnesty or the Dream Act? It is because of our bite (input) that it hasn't.
