Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

Congressman Luis Gutierrez on Meet The Press: President Obama hasn't Demonstrated the Political Will and Courage to Tackle Comprehensive Immigration Reform

Rate this Entry

Congressman Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill) is at the forefront of the
immigration debate.  He has been harshly critical of the
President for his handling of the situation in Arizona, and for his
failure to meaningfully address comprehensive immigration reform
eighteen months into his presidency. He has also put his money where his
mouth is, getting
arrested in front of the White House while peacefully protesting the Arizona immigration law. 



The Congressman appeared on NBC's Meet the Press last Sunday, and as always he provided clear insight into the immigration reform issue, rationally evaluating the problem.  In doing so he assessed President Obama's political will as it relates to immigration reform as follows: 



"I don't think [President Obama] is there yet, and I think that the President has to understand that simple political soundbites is not what the American public want.  They want practical solutions.  He knows what the solution is to this issue.  He needs to demonstrate the political will and the political courage to take it on."



Plain and simply we need more people in Washington like Congressman Gutierrez.

    Your readers should check Mr. Gutierrez's press in Chicago concerning jobs obtained for relatives, favors to a developer to get a zoning change, artificially low real estate taxes on his new home and more.

    The "glass house" analogy applies to his harsh comments about the President.
