THE recent news that President Obama will “halt” deportations against non-offending undocumented immigrants is a joke and a clear attempt to attract Latino votes next year.

Can this president do anything right? Can’t he just fight for what he believes in, instead of all the half-hearted measures he’s been putting forth since taking office?

He promised comprehensive immigration reform, and could have worked towards that end during his first two years in office but he did nothing. Now he wants us all to believe that he is pro-immigrant.

The only “pro” thing Obama is is himself and his re-election campaign.  If you stand for nothing you’ll fall for everything, and that’s exactly what’s happened to him since taking office.
