DACA Field Report

Napolitano's Changed Stance

Rate this Entry
A new report has emerged in Politico's Glenn Thrush's e-book, Obama's Last Stand, about Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano's reluctance on the deferred action program. Thrush reports that Ms. Napolitano initially blocked the program as she might allegedly be interested in running for Senate in Arizona in 2016 and would not want to distance non-Latino voters from her there. This is even after Florida Senator Marco Rubio proposed a limited version of the DREAM Act, an attempt at re-gaining Latino voters who had drifted away due to Mr. Romney's support of the Alabama and Arizona immigration laws. Seeing that this would be detrimental to the Democratic Party, White House policy adviser Cecilia Munoz pushed Congressional leaders to pass a bill that would implement deferred action. While she was unsuccessful in doing so, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) advised Ms. Munoz that President Obama should pass an executive order. The internal battle continued when Ms. Napolitano refused to sign off on any such order until late May when she suddenly changed her stance and approved the deferred action program. What caused this reversed course by Ms. Napolitano is not clear, however. If you would like to share your thoughts, please share below; the original article on Ms. Napolitano's changed stance can be found here:
