    As a resident of the island of Oahu, I suppose I understand what you mean when you say

    ?We urge leaders from both sides of the isle ??

    but I?m not sure your editor would see it the same way.

    To John R Egan,

    “We urge leaders from both sides of the aisle …” is the better expression for it. We appreciate your correction.

    "Aisle" certainly agree that the question in Immigration Daily's September 26 editorial about how long the Obama administration can continue to get away with making promises to Latino (and other immigrant) communities that remain unfulfilled is highly appropriate.

    Latinos and other immigration supporters are an essential part of Obama's base. By turning against them, the president is not only betraying his own (professed) principles, but is also making a tactical mistake of monumental stupidity - antagonizing his own base before a crucial election.

    Through his cowardice (which is the kindest word "isle" be able to think of for "postponing" executive action on immigration - no one in his or her right mind can believe that he will really go ahead with it after this coming election - when the best that the Democrats can hope for is a razor-thin hold on power), President Obama is sending a loud and clear message to Latinos and everyone else who cares about immigration reform: "Don't Trust Me".

    "Aisle" venture to predict that millions of people who supported Obama and the Democrats in 2012 because of immigration will get that message and either stay home or vote Republican this fall, leading to an historic, catastrophic, defeat for the president and his party.

    Even that party on the other side of the aisle has enough sense not to declare war on its own base, as the president is doing with his.
