In an effort to woo Hispanic voters, President Obama made a pledge Saturday to push for immigration reform early in his second term. "This is something I care deeply about, [and] it’s personal to me," Obama told news anchor Enrique Acevedo in a television interview with Univision (left), a network viewed largely by Hispanics in the United States. Obama’s appearances on Univision have been frequent, as Saturday marked the 15th time he has been interviewed by the network, which purportedly reaches 97 percent of Hispanic households in the United States.
The Boston Herald reported on April 13 that Immigration and Customs Enforcement is pushing to deport Onyango Obama (left), President Obama’s illegal-immigrant uncle. Onyango came from Kenya and never went back, just like the President's Aunt Zeituni. Cops collared Onyango Obama in August 2011 after he almost crashed into a police cruiser. The President’s uncle was driving drunk, a charge to which he confessed in court in late March.
In a new ploy to push backdoor amnesty, the Obama administration is quietly working to curb the deportation of illegal immigrants by granting "unlawful presence waivers," for which to qualify, an illegal immigrant must be a relative of an American citizen.
Under current procedures, such illegal aliens must leave the country and request waivers of inadmissibility while undergoing the overseas immigration visa process, "often causing U.S. citizens to be separated for extended periods from their immediate relatives who are otherwise eligible for an immigrant visa and admission for lawful permanent residence," according to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
Current U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner David Aguilar (left) was caught on video during a 2007 town hall meeting with agents suggesting that stopping illegal immigration was not a high priority for the Border Patrol, sparking criticism from experts and even his own officers.
