1 - OBAMA PLAYS POLITICS WITH IMMIGRATION REFORM
President Barack Obama addressed the National Council of La Raza on Monday, promising to keep fighting for immigration reform while blaming Republicans for lack of progress.  Apparently in search of votes for his 2012 campaign, Obama contradicted the political advice of his former Chief of Staff and current Mayor of Chicago, Rahm Emanuel, who worked hard on enhanced border control issues but avoided pro-immigrant measures like the plague.  "We have a system that separates families and punishes innocent young people for their parents' actions by denying them the chance to earn an education," lamented Obama.  It's too bad the President hasn't done anything to rectify this deplorable situation.  Obama won 2/3 of the Latino vote in 2008, and hopes that this fast-growing sector of the electorate will help him to victory in 2012.
