Obama'sExecutive Action.Immigration Reform,the Dream Act.

We can't keep complaining politicians don't value our political importance and yet not go out and vote massively to support those who are fighting for us.

President Obama has in fact granted a very partial amnesty in the only way he could at this time,also he has shown favorable views to the immigrant community in general and the hispanic communitty in particular.This is a high political risk the president is taking specially as the election cycle gets near. I understand this has some electoral motivation because he needs to give something to his base because until now he has pretty much consumed his presidency trying fruitlessly to find some way to compromise and carry out big national policies with the republican party, party that due to the situation it's in where the tea party and the right wing extremist talking heads hold hostage, and has it's only goal to defeat Obama regardless of the consequenses as it has publicly been expressed by Mitch McConnell and other republicans in leadership as well as the emperor our fearless leader Rush Limbaugh, glory to his name.

Immigration Reform by Executive Action

So the time is now , to put up or shut up!Either we start voting in droves to protect the political back of the people that are fighting for us,or they will be defeated by the bigots and xenophobes and replaced by politicians who see the only immigration reform they will accept is to put those damn foreigners in boats and ship them out. These are thealternatives we face, be as loud, outspoken, and aggresive politically speaking as the teaparty and extremists are, or face a future of uncertainty, relegation, and expulsion . The main point I want to make is that , if you have ever been an illegal alien, and you know exactly how much time and hard work and money it takes to ever get your green card first and then wait five years spend more money to become a US citizen,while maintaining a pristine record in every way so your path to citizenship is not jeopardized,or if any family member has suffered the situation of being illegal, or any of your close friends has been in this situation,you have the moral obligation of going out and voting on every election, but most importantly voting on a national election because as much as any politician may want to do the right thing, and defend the weakest link in our society, they can not do it and be successful in their attempt if the people they are fighting for do not care enough to bother to vote in instances that are crucial to their own benefit.so all I have to say to you at this point is NOT A SINGLE HISPANIC VOTE FOR THE PARTY OF BIGOTS XENOPHOBES AND ZEALOTS IN 2012.

I respect your opinion,but I disagree ,in the absence of a serious third option one of the two major parties will be in power,and outside of utopia land the reality is that the republicans are detrimental to the health of the working man, and immigrants and minorities and women more than the democrats are,so if you fall into any of these categories you should support the option that at least will harm you less.The right and the oligarchy has always promoted the notion that all politicians are the same and want to rob the people to maintain the status quo,defeat the left and remain in power.

Apparently you're in your own bubble. Obama has deported more people than Bush. It is not in the US interest to give the citizenship to illegal people. The immigration reform will always hang over the electorate as a weapon. When Obama decides to drone Afghanistan or Syria, he doesn't need the approval of the congress, does he?

To think that both parties oppose each other is an illusion, they work in collusion.

You want real change, vote none of the above! If you don't vote, your voice doesn't count but if you vote "none of the above" your voice states clearly your opinion and we will win over the thugs that are depriving us of our freedom and of our prosperity

well i'd rather see my guy in the white house regarded as a puppet of the labor unions,defending the interest of the working man and the middle class than the other guy who will be a puppet of the teaparty who are in turn the dummies carrying the water for the mega corporations and the trillionares that while continue to amass immeasurable fortunes refuse to let go of their welfare benefits.

Sad to say that we appear to agree that whoever gets elected in 2012 is going to be regarded as a puppet by a large segment of the population.

We also agree, I think, that the next election will probably see a record voter turnout, not just in numbers, but also in percentage of eligible voters. It might even exceed 100%.

us hispanics need to understand we have the most to lose in the coming election if Obama is not reelected and the tea party's puppet sits in the oval office, it is crucial we go out and vote in crazy high numbers.

You are exactly correct Mio Cid. President Obama has no chance in passing a new Immigration Reform bill in this xenophobic Congress. The Dream Act failed so no bill has a chance. The Dream Act was a no-brainer bill but I guess the Tea Party have no brains. The President will push a lot of progressive legislation if he is re-elected especially with both houses in the Democratic column. The Republican party has turned so far right that I do not see how any minority group votes for them. The Tea Party wing is racist and they are wagging the dog. We need top get out and vote Democratic in 2012. Everyone needs to vote. Great Hub.
