Bowing to Pressure from Advocates Obama Calls for Review on Deportations
President Obama for months has repeatedly stated that he is powerless to curb his record deportations by further expanding prosecutorial discretion initiatives such as deferred action or parole in place. It appears he found his powers again after meeting with three leaders of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus to discuss the fact that he is getting slammed in the press and on social media over his deportation record.
The strategy of pressuring the White House has clearly weakened the President's resolve, as he has flip-flopped again stating his willingness to review deportation policies to ensure that people are deported humanely, because when you are destroying a family with deportation you want to make sure that it is done as humanely as possible. Apparently, Obama is only powerless when the focus is solely on the GOP's failure to move reform legislation through the House.
Keep the pressure up, as it is Kryptonite to this President.
