Another enterprising election year strategy to shore up his Latino vote. Heck, why not just give them all cash payments in order to get their vote.
This man is very dangerous and needs to be removed from office.
The Obama administration will announce Friday a proposed new regulation that would allow certain undocumented immigrants to remain in America while applying for legal status — a step aimed at keeping families intact and one that may also shore up the president’s support with Latino voters.
As it stands, people living in the U.S. illegally who leave the country to apply for a green card face years of separation from family members.
Depending on how long they’ve lived in America, once they leave they are barred from returning for up to 10 years.
They can claim that their absence would pose a hardship for their spouse or parent and ask the Department of Homeland Security to waive the re-entry restrictions.
But to do that, they must first travel to a consular office abroad and begin a process that can take months or even years, experts say.
Eh, why bother with laws any more? Just open the borders and give everyone a voter ID card (without a photo, of course) as they cross the border.
They’re not even trying to conceal the reason for doing this.
The proposal is likely to win plaudits from a crucial constituency in the 2012 election: Latinos.
Obama won two-thirds of the Latino vote in 2008, and he needs this fast-growing constituency energized and excited about his reelection.
