Thursday at the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Dinner, President Barack Obama had to shout down protesters as he promised to act on executive amnesty.
Obama said, “This is not a question of if but when. The moment I act, and it will be taken place between the November election and the end of the year, opponents of reform will roll out the same old scare tactics.”
But the president went on to explain, “They will try and block any immigration reform” and he pointed out there is only two more years left in his administration so in order to pass lasting legislation he said, “I’m going to need you to have my back. I’m going to need you to keep the pressure on Congress” adding, “anything I can do could be reversed by the next president.”
Obama begged the caucus to work harder to get out the Hispanic vote by taking another shot at the Fox News Channel saying even Sean Hannity agreed we need immigration reform after last election’s Latino turnout.
