GO VOTE: Election Day is Tomorrow, November 4, 2014!

GO VOTE: Election Day is Tomorrow, November 4, 2014!

With all the talk of the Republicans being poised to take control of the Senate, you may think you have a million other things to do more compelling than standing in line to vote 다운로드. And you could not be more WRONG!

Even if Republicans do win the Senate and control both houses of Congress after tomorrow, they will not gain enough seats to effectively pass legislation without Democratic support in the Senate since it requires 60 votes to invoke cloture and vote on legislation 다운로드. It also takes 66 votes to override any veto by President Obama. As a result, a minority Democrat party will still be in a position to defend the precious few but important gains achieved in the immigrant community, such as DACA 다운로드. While many vocal Republicans in the House and Senate have squawked about repealing or ending DACA, this will be impossible with the slim control they may have after tomorrow–provided the new Democrat minority stands up against them 맥용 오피스 무료.

But consider, what incentive will this new Democrat minority have to stand up and defend these important gains if our voices are not heard on Tuesday 건강손지압? If in the minority on Wednesday, the Democrats will be on the defensive on many many different fronts: Budget, Taxes, Appropriations, Keystone, etc. etc 비발디 브라우저. etc. The Democrat party, which has benefited greatly from the immigrant advocacy over the last decade, MUST know that we demand they stand up for our community and push back to preserve what immigration gains we have made 레나 마리아.

AND President Obama MUST now be willing to go big on administrative prosecutorial discretion relief 다운로드. With the Senate Democrats forming the firewall against any Republican push back, now is the time for Obama to bring the majority of undocumented immigrants, who are law abiding, productive, tax paying members of our communities, out of the shadows 이상한 나라의 앨리스 자막 다운로드!

Doing so will set the table and the standard against which any Republican effort at immigration reform will be judged (if indeed they even have the backbone to address the issue in the run up to 2016) 다운로드. Failure to do so will leave a huge indelible stain on any legacy Obama hopes to have!

I’ll see you tomorrow morning, bright and early!

Immigration Reform Update: Napolitano Pushes for Broader Executive Action!

The Washington Post.  October 27, 2014.  1201 a.m 유튜브 연령 제한 다운로드.

The Washington Post this weekend reported that former Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano stated in an interview:

“If Congress refuses to act and perform its duties, then I think it’s appropriate for the executive to step in and use his authorities based on law . .  텔레 그램 pc 버전 다운로드. to take action in the immigration arena,’’ Napolitano, a lawyer and former U.S. attorney in Arizona, said in an exclusive interview with The Washington Post 다운로드.

She made her remarks to the Washington Post ahead of what the Post has reported will be a significant speech by her scheduled for Monday, October 27, 2014 to be delivered in Georgia.  The Post has further reported that she is expected to detail the heated debate that took place inside the Administration in 2012 when the Administration and Napolitano announced and implemented the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.  DACA  is now considered to be largely successful, benefiting over 580,000 young immigrants to date.  It is expected that Napolitano will detail how she urged much broader action in 2012.  It is expected that she will likely push for broader action now 다운로드.

Hopefully, Secretary Nepolitano’s interview this weekend and her speech on Monday is part of a broader effort to lay the groundwork for a concerted push for expanded executive action once the November elections are over!  Stay tuned 삼성노트북 무선랜 드라이버 다운로드.
