    Want President Obama To Sign Comprehensive Immigration Reform Bill


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     verichards8 told me, 'I believe that when not if President Obama delivers on his 2012 campaign promise to sign a comprehensive immigration reform bill he will change America forever for the better.'
    - hhanks, CNN iReport producer

    I want President Obama to deliver on his 2012 campaign promise to sign a Comprehensive Immigration Reform Bill during his first year of his second term. A comprehensive immigration reform bill will affect me personally because it will make America a more just democracy for all of its citizens including African-Americans. Therefore, I hope that the Boehner and the Republicans who are using the debt ceiling to force President Obama keep his promise to reduce the deficit are as adamant about him keeping his promise on Immigration Reform.

    As I stated in an I-Report dated April 23, 2010, “According to Glenn Beck if an immigration reform bill is passed by Congress and signed by President Obama it would guarantee that the Democrats will control the White House and Congress for the next 60 years. The families of people who will benefit directly from the bill will remember the political party and president that represented their interest. Voters will have the opportunity from Obama’s presidency FORWARD to evaluate president candidates, their vision(s) for America, their past record/actions, and character and cast their votes.


    Candidates will have to be mindful of the needs of all Americans and not just one race or the rich in order to win an election.President Obama will be the first of many more African-Americans, women, Hispanic-Americans, and other minorities to become president, senators, congressmen, governors, judges, and mayors, in America.

    Lastly,  A Comprehensive Immigration Reform Bill will lay the foundation for Dr. Martin Luther King’s dream that people be judged by the content of their character and not the color of their skin becoming a reality and not a dream for my grand boys and all of America’s children. America will be CHANGED foreve for the better.
