Keep reminding the brown folks, Mr.President.  Tell them who is on their side.  Arizona certainly is NOT.  Don’t forget who is against you; remember who stands with you.

    President Barack Obama said he won’t “walk away” from an overhaul of the nation’s immigration laws in remarks tonight before an annual gathering of Hispanic members of Congress.

    “I know that many of you campaigned hard for me, and understandably you’re frustrated we haven’t been able to move this over the finish line,” the president said at the Hispanic Caucus Institute’s annual awards dinner in Washington. “But let me be clear: I will not walk away from this fight.”

    Obama has regularly called for Congress to take up a revision of immigration laws to tighten border security, deal with the millions of people in the country illegally and create a mechanism for foreigners to work in the U.S.

    Previous efforts to pass immigration legislation during the administration of Obama’s predecessor, President George W. Bush, failed in Congress over disagreements on how to treat the estimated 11 million immigrants already in the country illegally.

    “When millions of immigrants toil in the shadows of our society, that’s not just a Latino problem; that is an American problem,” Obama said. “And we have to solve it.”
