I was invited to comment on the State of Union speech yesterday on the Rick Amato Show, it was obvious that the President was going to mention the Immigration issue, and he did. He briefly mentioned that Congress has a responsibility to fix our broken system.
I am very optimistic, McCain’s win in Florida today maybe an indication that we are getting ready for a possible change. The foreign Born community in thid country will support the Candidate that will take a chance on immigration reform. Ruben Navarrette Jr.writes today:
For the foreign-born, many of whom care deeply about the immigration issue, maybe the person who deserves their support in November isn’t the candidate who voted to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexican border (Barack Obama) or the one who equivocated on giving illegal immigrants driver’s licenses only to cave in and oppose it (Hillary Clinton). Maybe it’s the guy who stuck his neck out and co-sponsored with Ted Kennedy, no less, a comprehensive immigration reform bill that offered a path to legal status and made him a pariah in his own party.
And maybe it’s the person who, despite learning that protecting the border is the first priority, still stuck by his guns about the need for a comprehensive approach: Viva McCain.
I will also post my radio podcast in the next few days.
