Still think that electoral politics is going to solve the immigration issue? Or that being a Democrat means a magic answer to save Latinos once we, as a sleeping giant that everyone keeps talking about, vote? Gracias to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who is keeping it real by stepping away from offering a path to citizenship to immigrants.
…Pelosi also said Congress would have to tackle the politically sticky job of overhauling immigration laws in the new Congress, after a bipartisan measure collapsed last year.
The estimated 12 million immigrants in the U.S. illegally “are part of the U.S. economy. We cannot send them all home, and we cannot send them all to jail, so we have to address it,” Pelosi said.
Any solution would have to be bipartisan, she said, so it may require sacrificing some of Democrats’ past priorities, such as giving illegal immigrants a path to citizenship.
“Maybe there never is a path to citizenship if you came here illegally,” Pelosi said. “I would hope that there could be, but maybe there isn’t.”
What’s with this maybe business all of a sudden? Maybe now the Dems are telling the truth, that they never intended for there to be a path to citizenship or any sort of recognized status? Maybe it’s easier to keep millions of people and their families struggling in underground economies, living in neighborhoods that that are third world nations within this first world nation until ICE catches and deports those that survive horrific prison conditions?
It’s so convenient for the politicos and their reps in the mainstream media to blow smoke up out collective Latino asses and make us feel important, when already they are planning on backing out of promises even before your vote is cast.
Remember that on November 4th.
