WOW! (AP) ASSOCIATED PRESS IS REPORTING THAT DEMOCRATS ARE CONCERNED/CAUTIONING OBAMA ABOUT USING HIS PEN-POWER ON IMMIGRATION. The psychopath in the Oval Office is sinking fast. His own media team is turning on him. (And he's clinging to his anvil.)
WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama is facing potential rifts with members of his own party in tough re-election contests as he barrels toward a fall fight with Republicans over his ability to change immigration policies.
If Obama takes the broadest action under consideration - removing the threat of deportation for millions of people in this country illegally - the short-term risks appear greatest for Senate Democrats in conservative-leaning states. Weeks before the November vote, Democraps could find themselves on the hot seat for their views not only on immigration but also on Obama's use of his presidential powers.
Wary of what could be coming, some of those lawmakers have said Obama should act with caution.
"This is an issue that I believe should be addressed legislatively and not through executive order," said Sen. Kay Hagan, D-N.C., one of the top targets for Republicans trying to retake control of the Senate.
Sen. Mark Pryor, D-Ark., another vulnerable incumbent, said in a statement that he also is "frustrated with the partisanship in Washington. But that doesn't give the president carte blanche authority to sidestep Congress when he doesn't get his way."
Such statements have immigration advocates on edge. [OH, Like #Obama isn't gonna fuck Latinos, like he fucks everyone else? Why do they think they're so special?]
A coalition of advocacy groups, in a letter to congressional Democrats on Friday, said immigrant families should not have to wait until after the November elections for relief. The organizations said any attempts by Democrats to delay or dilute administrative changes "will be viewed as a betrayal of Latino and immigrant communities with serious and lasting consequences." [BEEN AN ISSUE FOR DECADES, but MUST BE RESOLVED, WITHIN NEXT 60 DAYS (though no vote has even been taken/nothing decided, including by the President) -- yet, they come to America for the United States and all it stands for. HOW RATIONAL! You could get the fucc outta here, and go to where the government treats you better/in a country that kept it safe for you to come to. What are you gonna do...VOTE REPUBLICAN? Naw, too DUMB in the first place. #STFU!]
The letter was released because of advocates' concerns that leading Senate Democrats may be shifting their positions because of political considerations after previously urging Obama to act.
