God Bless America I AGREE With the President
If you can figure out tonight’s piece you are smarter than I am.
The President blamed the Republicans today, in a speech he gave that was mostly lies — for his immigration plans failure.
By his twisted logic, since the Senate is holding up his Supreme Court nominee and then as a result of that, the SCOTUS ruling today occurred — that then undid his “Executive” immigration plan.
I could write a book about all the things logically and legally wrong with his position(s) on this BUT I’m not going to because I have to admit a bigger point.
I agree with the President.
Certainly not about the limits of his executive authority, nor the history of immigration reform (he’s a Bishop fan), nor his approach and/or speeches on the subject BUT he is right about the most central and important point, these people are Americans and deserve to be allowed to stay in this country and pledge for citizenship.
Process matters and Obama’s refusal to see this has cost him dearly and this time is also going to cost 4 million immigrant-Americans just as dearly.
I don’t know what type of miracle it would take to solve this, but I wish it would occur and for once, Obama and the NeoCons would bury the hatchet and agree to get this done legally through Congress.
