On October 27, 2008, as founder of The Blue Dogs of the Democratic Party, I wrote the Blue Dogs endorsement of Barack Obama, " >Blue Dogs Endorse Barack Obama for President." The Blue Dogs gave considerable thought to this endorsement because Hispanics were our largest membership component with Immigration Reform being our highest priority.
Obama Fails to Obtain Immigration Reform, Deports 1.2 Million Hispanics & Lies to Cover-up Failure
To obtain Hispanic support in the 2008 presidential election, Obama promised Immigration Reform in the first year of his presidency but Obama failed to make good on his promise. In the second year of Obama’s term, when Democrats still had a majority in Congress, Obama again failed. Obama then proceeded to deport 1,200,000 undocumented Hispanics and lied he had no alternative but to uphold the law. Then seeing the handwriting on the wall ― HISPANIC VOTES ARE REQUIRED TO WIN RE-ELECTION ― Obama announced only immigrant criminals would be deported but deportations of non-criminal Hispanic immigrants continue. With complete failure to deliver Immigration Reform as promised and over 1,200,000 Hispanics deported leaving behind devastated American families, there is no Mexican American enthusiasm to vote for Barack Hussein Obama in the 2012 presidential election. Without Mexican American votes, Obama will not win re-election.
Obama's lack of leadership and failure to make good on promises to deliver Immigration Reform and deportations exceeding 1,200,000 Hispanics, are the number one issue for America's Hispanics.
There is a long litany of other failures that have caused the demise of the United States of America. Hispanic News, Latino News, New Mexico News, Solidarity USA, and Jon Garrido News have begun to identify these failures to build consensus of all Americans to end the Obama presidency and his White House staff for failing to provide fiduciary leadership for all Americans. Each website has a section, "JON GARRIDO ACCUSES OBAMA OF BETRAYAL OF AMERICA" that documents Obama's failed presidency. - From this section will come the basis for the actual Accusation and at the beginning of the Accusation will be a demand Obama end the Secure Communities Program and fire Janet Napolitano and Cecilia Muñoz.
The United States Supreme Court
On December 12, 2011, the United States Supreme Court agreed to decide the constitutionality of Arizona’s S.B. 1070. Justice Elena Kagan, who served as Solicitor General when the Arizona law was challenged in the lower courts, will abstain from ruling. The loss of Kagan significantly increases the probability of an affirmative vote to uphold Arizona S.B. 1070 making Arizona S.B. 1070 the law of the land.
With this forthcoming United States Supreme Court ruling, Immigration Reform becomes crucial to the welfare and future growth of the Hispanic community in America. We all know Obama is a gigantic failure to obtain Immigration Reform. We all know Obama has deported 1,200,000 Hispanics and lied when said he had no choice.
If Obama is re-elected, Immigration Reform will never be achieved and another 3,000,000 Hispanics will be deported. If a Democrat other than Obama, or a Republican can achieve Immigration Reform, we will endorse this person for Immigration Reform is our priority ― not party loyalty but not any Immigration Reform is acceptable. Only Immigration Reform that advances and protects the civil rights of all Hispanics living in America bringing an end to all deportations.
On January 2, 2012, Hispanic News asked Hispanic American voters in November 2012, not to vote for Obama for President of the United States.
Disillusionment with Obama & Puerto Rican Liberal Dominated Congressional Hispanic Caucus
In the 2008 election, we were Democrats. Today, we are disillusioned with Obama and congressional liberal Democrats not only for the lack of Immigration Reform but also for Obama attacks on the Catholic Church.
Other Christian values are being attacked by Obama and the Congressional Hispanic Caucus that supported the nomination of a Puerto Rican woman as Ambassador to El Salvador. The woman was serving as provisional ambassador to San Salvador since September 2010 after Obama, looking to bypass Republican opposition to her nomination, made her a recess appointee. Her temporary tenure ran out because Republican lawmakers resisted a determined administration effort to secure Senate confirmation.
Though the Senate Foreign Relations Committee approved her nomination on a 10-9 party-line vote, her fate in the full Senate was uncertain until the legislative session came to an end. Conservative anger toward the Puerto Rican woman was based, in part, on an op-ed she wrote June 28, 2011, in La Prensa Grafica, a daily newspaper in El Salvador promoting a lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender agenda. Republican South Carolina senator Jim DeMint, a chief opponent of the Puerto Rican appointment, claimed the op-ed was an “attempt to impose a pro-gay agenda” on El Salvador. Hispanic News agreed with Senator DeMint.
57 percent of El Salvador’s population is Roman Catholic, and several Salvadoran family and religious groups wrote to U.S. lawmakers criticizing the appointment for “abusing her diplomatic status, showing a clear disdain concerning our values and cultural identity.” They urged lawmakers to oppose her confirmation and suggested she be removed from the post.
Hispanic News contacted Senator DeMint recommending the U.S. Senate let the temporary tenure of this nomination run out ending the government career of this Puerto Rican woman advocate for a lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender agenda.
It appears the Congressional Hispanic Caucus only promotes Puerto Ricans who are 9% of America's Hispanics but Mexican Americans who are 63% of America's Hispanics are not considered worthy for ambassadorial appointments nor is Immigration Reform a priority for Puerto Ricans who can travel back and forth at will from Puerto Rico to the USA because Puerto Ricans being USA citizens do not have to comply with draconian immigration requirements as do Mexicans.
This is why Puerto Ricans think Immigration Reform is not important but this belief is naive, stupid and selfish. When the tide rises in the harbor, all ships rise — not just some. It is through increase of Hispanic immigrants entering from Mexico, Central and South America that will lead to greater and fuller participation in the American Dream for all Hispanics living in the USA and this includes Puerto Ricans benefiting from the Hispanic growth of the Hispanic population in the United States of America.
The Only Hope for Immigration Reform
Most Americans have no understanding of how Washington works.
In Winning the Future, Newt Gingrich writes, "The United States has a special place in this vision of a Continent of Hope. We are a very special nation because we are founded on a revolutionary idea: That we are created equal ― citizen and non-citizen alike ― and endowed by our Creator with inalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."
"The idea of America as a Continent of Hope carries both privileges and responsibilities for the people of the United states. It means every person has an inherent human dignity that must be respected, including those who are in our country illegally. But it also means all of us must respect the laws that have been passed to ensure freedom and security. As Pope John Paul II recognized, 'The Rule of Law is the necessary condition for establishing true democracy.'"
"In fulfilling a vision of America as the Continent of Hope, two values are inextricably linked: our compassion for those who come to our country for a better life and our commitment to the Rule of Law. Just as we would betray this vision by turning our backs on the poverty and injustice suffered by our neighbors, we would also undermine the very foundation of our nation by tolerating eleven million people in our midst in open violation for our laws. If we fail to abide by either of these values, we risk becoming less of the nation our Founders and Pope John Paul II believe we could be, and which we have been for 230 years."
"But how we reconcile this inspiring vision of America with the day-to-day demands of controlling our borders? To build a Continent of Hope we need a system of 'patriotic immigration.' Patriotic immigration means knowing that all immigrants to our country are legal and accounted for, and that once they're here, they learn to be Americans."
Americans would Agree with Gingrich Except Washington DC can Change the Rule of Law
All Americans would agree with Gingrich but Gingrich is playing a game with us. To those outside Washington, the above is what makes us Americans but for those who are familiar with the way Washington works, all in Washington know if you want to change federal law, a lobbyist from K Street is hired to begin to lobby a member of Congress to propose new law, repeal, or modify existing law.
This is where the nuts and bolts of Federal law has its beginning to persuade a member of Congress to sponsor new Federal legislation with the intent of becoming Federal law also labeled the Rule of Law.
This where the Cuban American Congressional Members of Congress have been highly successful in sponsoring and obtaining passage of Cuban Immigration programs enabling Cubans to freely enter the United States.
Unfortunately, the Congressional Hispanic Caucus controlled by Puerto Ricans because of lack of interest has never been successful in spearheading Immigration Reform to facilitate ease of entry for Mexicans, Central and South Americans.
These actions or rather lack of action is why there are presently two very different United States Immigration Polices for Hispanics/Latinos. One policy is the friendly welcome initiative for Cubans and the other polar opposite is for Mexicans, Central and South American countries and is a draconian maze with the primary intent of keeping Mexicans, Central and South Americans from entering the United States.
Both policies follow the "Rule of Law" but why is there two very different policies? Gingrich writes "We are a very special nation because we are founded on a revolutionary idea: That we are created equal ― citizen and non-citizen alike."
If this premise holds true for all then why is there two very different immigration policies or rather, two Rules of Law ― One for Cubans and a vastly different policy/Rule of Law for all other Hispanics/Latinos?
To bring immigration policy back to the principle of equality for all as defined in the U.S. Constitution, the immigration policy for Mexicans, Central and South Americans must be changed by passage of new Immigration Reform mandating only one policy/Rule of Law for all Hispanics/Latinos.
Then and only then would the Rule of Law be equally applied to all and would reflect the intent of the authors of the U.S. Constitution for the Rule of Law to be equally applicable to all.
If the Republican Party accepts this and spearheads new Immigration Reform passage for all Hispanics/Latinos that advances and protects the civil rights of all Hispanics living in America bringing an end to all deportations, then all Hispanics/Latinos should register for ever more as Republicans and vote a Republican for President of the United States.
