Immigration Reform is a National Security Dilemma, The White House must be on the Table!

QuestCinq.com/February 17, 2013

By Jean-Wisly Simon

Thanks to a combination of forces President Obama won the 2012 presidential election; most Latinos voted for him. Statistics show, this group will continue playing an important role in American politics in the future. Thus, politicians in both parties understand that in order to win they would have to find reliable partners in order to win future elections. Obviously, it is good politics and good government to have immigration reform during the second term of President Obama, as a national security dilemma.

As for now, all predictions paint Latinos as a group to partner with. Therefore, strategists and elected officials in the GOP’s especially decided to be part even leading force for immigration reform. As a result, a bipartisan commission has been formed in the Senate with eight Senators to put forward a plan to regulate the status of 11 million people who are living in the country illegally. Republicans do not want Obama to lead on that issue although he has won election on ‘a promise to fix it’. They imply if the President chooses to guide the process in any shape or form they will quit and block it altogether. According to the GOP’s outline, President Obama must be quiet on immigration reform.

The question people like me ask: Can they be trusted to bring about immigration reform? President George W. Bush wanted to do just that, however, his party the GOP said NO. My question again: Why should we think they are serious about it this time?

If they are serious today about it, one could foresee enormous roadblocks on the path of that reform. We all know that the Republicans do not have great desires for immigration reform but bitter ones. So, it’s possible they may use everything in their power to deny legal status to 11 million people.

If we are adults and serious on that issue, why President Obama has to be placed in quarantined mode on immigration reform in 2013?  Seriously!

USA Today said on Saturday that a draft of a White House immigration proposal would allow illegal immigrants to become legal permanent residents within eight years.

Immigration reform is a necessity; by the way, it should be seen as a national security dilemma. In short, it is a national security issue. Who’s the Commander in Chief?
