I know that I am late with this posting, but my birthday falls on May 3rd and I have been celebrating Cinco de Mayo with Tequila and Corona all weekend...I am starting off a little slow today. But I feel we should celebrate this important event all month long. I am sure The Dear Leader will be.
(ABC News) — President Barack Obama hosted a Cinco de Mayo party at the White House — “even though it’s only tres de mayo, we just like to get the fiesta started early around here” — and promised to push for a comprehensive overhaul of America’s immigration policies if he’s reelected.
“There’s still plenty of unfinished business, including fixing our broken immigration system,” he said. “It’s long past the time that we unleash the promise of all our young people and make the DREAM Act a reality.”
Mitt Romney has vowed to veto the legislation, which would allow some undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children to stay on American soil legally, provided they have a clean record and graduate from high school or serve in the military. Republican Senator Marco Rubio has also pushed a version of the measure that would provide temporary, non-immigrant visas.
“No is not an option, I want to sign the DREAM Act into law!” Obama said. “I’ve got the pens all ready, I’m willing to work with anybody who’s serious to get this done, and to achieve bipartisan comprehensive immigration reform that solves this challenge once and for all.”...More From ZIP
