CHICAGO - Congressman Luis Gutierrez (IL-4) isn't going to be so patient with President Obama this time around. He is pushing for comprehensive immigration reform - a very lenient version - and he went to bat for the President during the campaign by promising dramatic reform if his Latino supporters would help re-elect Obama in 2012. They did what Gutierrez asked, and now he wants action.
But Obama's not cooperating. The Hill reports:
“Who’s missing from these conversations is the president of the United States,” Gutierrez told The Hill. “When senators from both parties and members of the House are talking, when you have the Senate majority leader and Speaker Boehner both saying that this is an important priority. Who’s the one missing? The president.
“He’s saying good things. He needs to be an actor,” said Gutierrez, referring to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio).
Umm... we think he was really referring to the president, but you can read more for yourself at HERE
