Pelosi Accuses GOP of Blocking Immigration Reform Because of Race. By Roger Algase

Rating: 6 votes, 5.00 average.
Update, April 11, 3:30 pm:

Andrianna Huffington, President and Editor-in-Chief of the Huffington Poat, is also blasting away at Obama's deportation policy:

The Huffpost reports her as telling Fusion host Mariana Atencio:

"I feel that when it comes to deportations it's been very inhumane...I feel this is very un-American and if it had been done by a Republican we would have been much more up in arms."

Which is worse? Republicans blocking immigration reform because of anti-minority racism, or the Obama administration deporting the same minority immigrants at the fastest rate in history in order to accommodate Republican racism?

To the two million people whose lives have been destroyed by Obama's deportations, it does not make much difference.

My initial post follows:

In a late breaking news story, POLITICO reports that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-California) is accusing the Republicans of not bringing immigration reform up for a vote in the House because of racial issues.

In its April 10 story: Nancy Pelosi: Republicans won't push immigration because of race, POLITICO quotes her as saying:

"I think race has something to do with the fact that they are not bringing up an immigration bill."

House speaker John Boehner's response was the same old tired argument that a president who has deported 2 million people since he took office cannot be trusted "to enforce the law as written."

I have two questions:

1) What took Nancy Pelosi so long to say what has been obvious ever since last June, if not long before, and which i have been contending countless times in this space?

2) Where is President Obama's leadership in the biggest racial issue facing America since the civil rights era 50 years ago?

How can America's first non-white president keep going ahead with the deportations of 400,000 brown people each year? How can any president do this in good conscience?

What kind of place in our history does Barack Obama wish to create for himself?

    Did Pelosi fail to introduce comprehensive immigration reform legislation when she was Speaker because of race?
