Regardless of what you think of the man and his policies, the cartoon is incorrect.
Mr. Obama is talking about what to do with the people already here, many of whom have been here all their lives. This has nothing to do with encouraging people currently in Mexico to move here.
And, as everyone here should know, it is up to Congress to do the heavy lifting on immigration reform. And Congress has done, and plans to do, nothing. Nothing. I’ll say it again. Nothing.
Everyone wants something done. Congress won’t do its job. Whether he has the authority or whether you like his plan, at least give Mr. Obama credit for wanting to get something done. Something.
For all of you Obama-haters, your best bet is (and has always been) to encourage your “representatives” in Congress to do their job. They are being paid very well by both taxpayers and lobbyists. They truly do have the best health care system in the world (which is why they have no clue as to what the rest of us go through) and they have all kinds of perks, privilege, and power.
It’s time to make them earn it by facing the tough problems and making the tough decisions. If Congress acts, Obama will not and cannot act alone.
I will not say that there is no reason for anger and frustration: there is plenty. I will state for the record that much of it is misplaced and misdirected.
