Following Barack Obama’s political punt on taking executive action on “immigration reform” until after the mid-term elections, liberal allies are allegedly “furious.”
One group, however, is confident that the President will act on his threat to grant unilateral amnesty following the November elections.
In a press release issued by the Service Employees International Union, after blaming Republicans for not supporting immigration reform and vowing to “hold them accountable” in November, SEIU boss Mary Kay Henry stated that the White House action to delay “will only be temprorary.”
“By far, this isn’t the end game. Immigration reform has and always will be our future. While the president will continue to hear from us, Congress will feel the pressure of a growing electorate.
“We haven’t forgotten how we first got here. Republicans failed the American people by refusing to vote on meaningful immigration reform. Holding them accountable in November is a promise that we intend to keep.
“We know that whatever administrative action the president takes in the future will only be temporary. Whether it’s at the polls or on the streets, we’ll make sure immigration reform becomes a reality.” [Emphasis added.]
