In pursuance of demonstrating encouragement for the development of the country’s immigration regulations, President Barack Obama has assembled leaders aligned with former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro, as well as Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey, who also served as Washington, D.C. police chief.
The bipartisan party members were those invited to the said assembly at the White House. They anticipated to convene with the U.S. leader this Tuesday afternoon to talk about the reform needed to improve the immigration scheme.
Industry along with religious heads, even present and past public senior officers coming from various political sectors were to be called to attend the assembly, according to an unnamed White House executive.
According to the White House last Monday, U.S. President Barack Obama has been set to preside the assembly in order to explain profoundly the significance of overhauling the country’s “broken immigration system”. This must be done so that the government will be able to conform to the nation’s 21st century economic as well as public security requirements.
President Obama was already criticized by Latino and immigration protesters for being unsuccessful in giving priority to the immigration concerns during his first term in office. Although the president was constantly getting a reminder about his obligation to resolve immigration issues, the deportation of 393,000 immigrants – a first in U.S. history – in the previous year triggered the Spanish-language media and Hispanic communities to criticize the ability of the president to resolve the worsening situation in immigration.
Due to occurrence of these issues, Illinois democratic representative Luis Gutierrez quoted the people of Chicago of his doubt to support Obama for the 2012 presidential elections if the president failed to come up with immigration developments. To recall, it was Gutierrez who convinced Hispanic voters to support Obama during the 2008 presidential campaign.
It was reported in the previous week that 22 Senate Democrats submitted a request to President Obama to procrastinate deportations of juvenile undocumented immigrants who entered the nation with the guidance of their parents.
