Obama agenda: An olive branch

The New York Times: “The Obama administration announced Thursday that it would suspend deportation proceedings against many illegal immigrants who pose no threat to national security or public safety.”

Latinos are a key voting bloc for this president, but even though polling still shows strong support for the president among Hispanics, many have expressed frustration, including notably Rep. Luis Gutierrez (R-IL), of Obama’s hometown Chicago, who has been arrested for handcuffing himself to the White House fence.
