Comprehensive Immigration Reform on Steroids

A big push led by the National Council of La Raza (NCLR) president and CEO Janet Murguia and Dr. Victoria DeFrancesco Soto for Immigration Reform and a halt to deportations, or should I say NCLR and Dr. Victoria DeFrancesco Soto has resorted to threatening President Obama with a lawsuit if he doesn't use his Executive Power to stop deportations.

I hope everybody see and understand why this sudden big push for Immigration Reform is happening. Recently President Obama started an initiative for ‘Young Black Men’ called ‘My Brother’s Keeper’ to help Black youth. Immigration Reform advocates are pretty much saying, “If he can do that for Black people, he should be able to do the same for Hispanics.”

There definitely should be a ‘Comprehensive Immigration Reform Law’ passed without hurting the people the law is suppose to help, and the law should be passed sooner than later. With that said, first of all, Black people didn't come to America on their own. Secondly, every immigration advocate knows it’s Republicans who are stopping such a law from passing.

What immigration advocates should do, instead of branding the President as “Deporter In Chief” is encourage some Hispanics to stop voting for Republicans who view your concerns as meaningless.
