Harry Reid was in full pander mode in his Unvision interview with anchor (and noted amnesty for illegals advocate) Jorge Ramos.
Ramos first confronted Reid about Obama’s failure to keep his campaign promise to push for an amnesty bill in his first term, despite his 14 months of Congressional filibuster-proof super-majority in 2009-10.
An irritated Reid responded as we would expect him to: by blaming Republicans, even though the GOP could not have stopped any bill in Obama’s first term, if Obama had actually made it a priority (which he did not).
But then Reid made news by revealing that Obama – who has already dismantled the enforcement regime against illegal aliens, and granted a unilateral amnesty for nearly 2 million illegal aliens by a stroke of his pen last August – would be engaging in more amnesty moves without Congressional approval in the near future:
RAMOS: Because he didn’t keep his word on presenting an immigration proposal his first year, is there a Hispanic problem for President Obama?
REID: Well, Jorge, the polls, because of what the Republicans have done on wide-ranging issues to be anti-hispanic, the polls show Democrats leading by significant numbers including President Obama. President Obama is not a perfect man, he hasn’t been a perfect president. He’s been a very very good president. And we’ve done some extremely good things, especially as it relates to the dreamers to make sure they are not taken away in the middle of the night. There’s a lot more than can be done. There’s more the president is going to do administratively and that should happen fairly quickly.
There you have it – with their electoral backs against the wall, we can expect even more extra-judicial, extra-Congressional, lawless amnesty moves by this cabal before November.
And don’t you just love the phony drama about preventing “Dreamers” from being “taken away in the middle of the night“, when in reality they parade around on city streets and protest state capitols with no fear of the neutered ICE whatsoever.
Ramos, who recently had his own feisty interview with Joe Arpaio, then asked Reid about the popular and controversial Sheriff, absurdly asking if Arpaio should “quit”…
REID: Well first of all he should never have been elected and should he quit? The answer is yes. This is a man who is demonstrably one of the most unfair people I have ever dealt with in government. It’s too bad he’s done what he’s done. But he relishes in being a Hispanic-basher, and that’s really too bad.
Typical Reid, like Chuck Schumer, Dick Durbin, or even Barack Obama: blame Republicans for your own failure to push through immigration “reform”; and slam Sheriff Joe for doing the job that the Feds refuse to do: enforce the laws on the books.
Are Hispanics so gullible as to fall for this crap again in 2012, as they did in 2008?
