"They helped get you another term, B-Rock. Looks like they want something in return."
The Daily Caller: "Hispanic amnesty activists are expanding their goals beyond the so-called “DREAM Act” youth amnesty, towards a national amnesty for roughly 11 million Hispanic illegals.
President Barack Obama and Congress “need to come together to deliver change on immigration policy, and by that we mean … a roadmap to citizenship for our parents and communities,” said Cristina Jimenez, direct of an advocacy group, United We Dream.
Their demand is an opening salvo in a post-election campaign to persuade the House GOP to provide “a path to citizenship” for roughly 11 million illegal immigrants, most of whom are low-skill laborers who compete for jobs against low-skill Americans.
The amnesty goal is supported by many progressive groups, in part, because most Hispanics prefer generous welfare policies, and so usually vote for Democratic candidates.
In contrast, many Republican advocates and legislators favor high-skill immigration, partly because high-skilled workers spur the economy and lower unemployment."No one can say they didn’t see this coming. Obama sucked up to this community, promising them the moon and stars if they voted for him (whether they legally could or not) and they did. Obviously, they haven’t been paying attention over the last four years or they would have figured out he was bullshitting them the whole time.
But hey…at least they sold their Catholic souls and made sure that ObamaCare continues and their churches (at least the American ones) will be spending its money on birth control instead of needy communities.
