RNHA Responds to the President's Immigration Reform Speech

In his speech at the American University School of International Service in Washington D.C. today, President Obama called out Republicans in the effort to lay the ground work for blaming the GOP if immigration reform fails, yet again. Since the President ran down Republicans, it seems only appropriate to hear what the Hispanic Republicans had to say.

Responding to the President's speech, Republican National Hispanic Assembly (RNHA) National Chairman Alci Maldonado said, “While I welcome President Obama's attention to the immigration issue, I am disheartened by his inability to lead. His polarizing demeanor is the cause of the lack of bipartisanship we see in Washington D.C."

As usual, the President blamed Republicans in his speech for prolonging the immigration problem. He suggested states like Arizona took up the immigration issue because Republican senators backed away from immigration reform following the debate a few years ago led by Sen. John McCain, (R-Arizona), and Sen. Ted Kennedy, (D-Massachusetts).

Chairman Maldonado continued by saying, “States are addressing this issue without the input of the Federal Government because the Federal Government, no matter if it was led by Republicans or Democrats, repeatedly dropped the ball. At least President George W. Bush advocated immigration reform. It's time that the Democrats as well as the Republicans in Congress and the President pick that ball up and lead as they promised they would."

Chairman Maldonado concluded by stating, “It should be noted that if immigration reform fails while the Democrats hold control of both houses of Congress and the White House, it is not because of the Republicans but rather due to the President's incompetence as a leader. The American people are waiting for leadership on this issue and we can not tolerate the President's blame game any longer. Do your job Mr. President!"
