LOTS OF MIXED MESSAGES ON IMMIGRATION REFORM

From the last few days:

LEADING HISPANIC DEMOCRAT WARNS OBAMA ON IMMIGRATION -

Representative Javier Bacera (D-CA) warned President Obama that he's in danger of losing the support of the country's Hispanics over his failure to take action on immigration reform.

From The Hill:

A member of the House Democratic leadership said Wednesday that Latinos view President Barack Obama with 'suspicion' for failing to meet expectations.

Rep. Xavier Becerra (Calif.), the House Democratic Caucus vice chairman, offered stern words for Obama, saying that the Latino population wants to see more from the White House on issues that are important to them.

'I think there's a lot of suspicion, a lot of doubt, a lot of concern,' he said on KPCC Radio of Obama's image among Latinos. 'The president made a promise. He hasn't fulfilled that promise. Rightfully, I think a lot of folks are questioning where the president's priorities are.'

Latino groups have been pressuring Congress and the White House to act on comprehensive immigration reform amid doubts that legislation will be passed this year.

Becerra's comments are one of the most significant broadsides from a lawmaker against Obama's sway with Latinos.

    I think the possibility of it at least being introduced in the Senate is good. Whether it will pass is another thing.

    I don't know what's Durbin up to by making contradicting statements. I think it's just a mental lapse or something.

    He was also recently quoted as saying that the Senate bill will be introduced by April 30.

    So, I think he knows it will be introduced soon and the contradicting statement he just gave maybe just a lapse.

    At this point it seems that they may do something but is probably more political posturing than real CIR.
