Obama's DREAM is All About the Politics

As the mainstream media predictably swoon the day President Obama’s immigration fiat kicks in, Democrats let the cat out of the bag: It was always more about politics than anything else.

[M]ore than 5,000 have registered for an information session [Re. Luis] Gutierrez is planning Wednesday at Chicago’s Navy Pier. Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Sen. Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.) plan to attend, basking in an election-year initiative that Democrats hope will please Latino voters after years of record deportations. “This is such a contrast to the years of deportation,” Gutierrez said. “The rewards are going to be huge.”

Electoral rewards, of course.

The letter of the law, our national sovereignty, and the process by which we have governed this nation for more than 200 years no longer matter at all.
