Obama picks immigration reform advocate to lead domestic policy
By Amie Parnes and Erik Wasson – 01/10/12 03:30 PM ET
President Obama has picked a strong advocate of immigration reform to head his Domestic Policy Council.
The White House announced Tuesday that Cecilia Muñoz, a former senior vice president of the National Council of La Raza, would replace Melody Barnes at the top of the council. White House press secretary Jay Carney announced the appointment during his press briefing.
Muñoz is now serving as the White House’s director of intergovernmental affairs and is in charge of outreach to state and local governments.
“The president has asked, she has accepted,” Carney said.

Muñoz is an immigration expert who worked for the National Council of La Raza, the largest Latino civil rights and advocacy organization in the United States, until she joined the administration in 2009. The group works to improve opportunities for Hispanic Americans and advocates legislation that would provide a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants.
Obama has frequently been criticized by pro-immigration reform advocates for not pressing harder for changes to the country’s immigration laws. Hispanic groups also have complained that the administration has stepped up deportations of illegal aliens.  
All of this has led to questions about whether Obama will garner strong support from Hispanics in his 2012 reelection bid. It is crucial to Obama’s reelection that he win a large majority of the Hispanic vote, particularly in critical swing states such as Florida, New Mexico and Colorado.
Carney called Muñoz “the best person for the job.”

Last I heard, the Dear Ruler had all but halted deportations of the illegal invaders, so I really do not get what the Hispanic groups have their boxers in a bunch about.
Nothing like a little election year pandering to the illegal aliens who have invaded our country. Of course, many of them will be voting in the upcoming 2012 election, and if recent polling data is to be believed, El Presidente Obama needs all the votes he can get.

Barack is deporting illegal aliens at a record rate. He should be more compassionate in my opinion. Deportation of a family member is very hard on the entire family, deported or not. I think that we need a more humane policy

You know, walt of bellbookcandle, if you’re gonna be a Republican traitor and Obama suck-up, at least get your facts straight. Chris Crane of the National ICE Council told the House Judiciary subcommittee that Obama has ordered immigration officers NOT to arrest and deport illegal aliens: “ICE enforcement removal officers and agents in the field alleged that unwritten directives from ICE headquarters had been issued nationwide ordering officers not to arrest aliens unless it was confirmed that the alien had recieved a prior conviction for a criminal offense.”

Breaking the law and coming here illegally is very hard on us taxpayers.
Please tell me what other country in the world would let you move there illegally, work, start a family and support your children (through school) on the taxpayers’ dime? Because if there is one I suggest we transport illegals there ASAP.

He has to be easy on illegal immigrants, he and his aunt and uncle are here illegally. When Mr. Soetero was adopted by Lolo Soetero he became an Indonesian citizen. There are no records indicating he was ever naturalized.
I’ve always felt that is one reason he was adopted by the Native American tribe during his campaigning too.

This Son Of A Whore needs to be in Leavenworth for the rest of his days, at hard labor. Then he might realize that he is NOT A KING but a peon like the rest of his illegal buddies! Semper Fi.
