” President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama met informally with immigration activists on the National Mall on Friday.
They visited individuals taking part in Fast for Families to “offer their support for those who are fasting on behalf of immigration reform,” a White House official told the pool report. The Obamas spoke with the activists for about half an hour.
The immigration activists have been fasting since Nov. 12, abstaining from all food except water and “are calling for the Republican leadership in the House of Representatives to take up action on comprehensive immigration reform,” the official said.”
We guess the “website thing” is all straightened out since Obama has time to meet with illegals where he was too busy to attend 150th anniversary festivities for Gettysburg , and what of the troops ? When has he visited them ? How about the wounded at Walter Reed Hospital ? They are unlikely to vote for his policies so they must make up that part of America that he doesn’t represent .
The Border patrol had their hands full the other day at the canal in the Tijuana border area as hundreds of illegals tried to force entry into the US . The resulting near invasion , complete with bottle and rock throwers forced the Border patrol to bring out the tear gas in an effort to stave off the massive influx of democratic voters .
A search of the MSM revealed nothing of this brazen move by the “undocumented” democrats , which , given the inherent bias of the media should come as little surprise . It happened nevertheless as do lots of things that the lamestream media fails to inform the viewing public about .
” The first Texas elections under a contentious new photo ID law drew interesting conclusions for an off-year election that normally draws a low amount of voters.
There were nine proposed amendments to the Texas Constitution, and the number of votes tallied was nearly double what it was in 2011. Democrats and civil rights groups have long argued that voter ID requirements suppress turnout, particularly in poor and minority communities.
All nine measures were approved during this election, and dealt primarily with taxes and state budgets, according to Ballot Pedia.
Statewide, an average of about 672,874 Texans voted on those 10 constitutional amendments in 2011. In 2013, the number of votes cast in Texas reached 1,099,670. “
When people are assured that their vote will be counted they are more likely to make the effort to cast their ballots . That shouldn’t be a difficult concept to grasp , but it does prevent the Dems from padding the rolls …
” They’re already breaking the law, why not go for the gold?
The frustration, say immigration advocates, is reaching a fever pitch.
That is why, many say, recent weeks have seen activists use chains and pipes to tie themselves to the tires of buses that carry immigrants slated for deportation to court, block traffic on Capitol Hill and get arrested, surround Tucson police when they targeted two immigrants during a traffic stop, and chain themselves and block the entrance of a federal detention center.
More such actions, they vow, are coming.”
They sure learned the way to a progressive’s heart quickly enough . Make some threats and get what you want . It works for the Muslim hordes and it’s working for the Illegal invasion too . Cowardice thy name is progressivism .

HOUSE LEADERS TO EDUCATE VOTERS ABOUT IMMIGRATION: ‘BECOME AMERICA’
” House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) will lead a tour of House leaders next week aimed at educating Americans, and each other, about the history and importance of immigration to the United States. The tour, dubbed the “Become America” tour, will feature events and speeches aimed at overcoming opposition to the passage of comprehensive immigration reform, which has stumbled amidst opposition from conservatives.
