GOP Feels [Coming Soon] About Immigration

(Read the full article here: GOP Feels [Coming Soon] About Immigration)

The GOP has been twisting itself into a pretzel since Obama’s executive order last Friday tohalt deportation of DREAM Act-eligible undocumented immigrants.

Some GOP lawmakers out the gate threatened to sue over the legality of the EO, but that’s the knee-jerk reaction of the smaller portion of the party that’s causing the Republicans to bleed Latino votes….Read More

(Read the full article here: King, Grassley, Rubio Throw A Fit Over Obama’s Immigration Order)

Conservative leaders got their panties in a knot after Obama ordered his administration to stop deporting Dream-Act eligible illegal immigrants. Here’s a brief rundown of conservative responses to the President’s executive order:

Peter King

On Mike Huckabee’s radio program, Iowa Republican Rep. Steve King announced his intentions to sue the Obama administration, claiming to have successfully sued his own state governor for a similar issue: “I have done it once in the past successfully when then-Governor Tom Vilsack thought he could legislate by executive order — and the case of King vs. Vilsack is in the books.”… Read More

Obama Stops Deportation of Dream-Act Eligible Eligible Illegal Immigrants

(Read the full article here: Obama Stops Deportation of Dream-Act Eligible Eligible Illegal Immigrants)

Circumventing an obstinate Congress, Obama has ordered his administration to stop deporting illegal immigrants under the age of 30 if they meet certain requirements.

Effective immediately, undocumented persons who came to the States under the age of 16 will be allowed to stay and apply for work permits, provided they have lived in the country continuously for at least five years, pose no national security threat, have a clean criminal record, and be either enrolled in school, hold a diploma or GED, or serve or have served in the military….

Mitt Romney Remains Comically Unpopular With Latino Voters

 

 

Soooooooooo the Republicans have been trying Hispanic outreach to close what can only be described as a comically large gap between Romney and Obama among Hispanic voters. How’s that going?

Welp, according to a June 8 poll by Latino Decisions (I’m guessing they tilt to the left, but whatevs) Obama has…a comically large lead over Romney, 66-23. I’d say there’s no way Obama can go any higher, but 11% of respondents were undecided, so I guess can he still hit 77%… Read more

For those of you scoring at home or alone, Barack Obama’s gonna lose the state of Florida. A Qunnipiac poll has Obama down by six points to Mitt Romney, 47-41, the most definitive lead Romney has over Obama in a swing state. 

Six points is not an insurmountable lead, but everything about the state works against Obama. America’s wang swung for Obama only by 51% in 2008, after two elections of going red (one of which you may remember). The state’s older, white demographics went against Obama even during the 2008 surge, and Obama can’t count on any offsetting enthusiasm this time around… Read More.
