President Obama did some more Hispandering yesterday speaking to a "town hall" carried on the Spanish television network Univision. His remarks show some improvement but, in some areas he still does not get it! Here are some of the money quotes:

"President Barack Obama on Monday told a student who has received a deportation notice that he does not want to deport her -- he wants people like her to succeed."

Succeed at what? Continuing to break our immigration laws? Succeed in jumping to the head of the line over other more deserving immigrants who are patiently waiting to enter the United States legally? Succeed in making U.S. taxpayers continue to pay for her education?

"The president later added, “America is a nation of laws, which means I, as the president, am obligated to enforce the law.”

BINGO! Yes, enforce the law Obama. But, you are not enforcing the law when you give a free pass to those who are here illegally and allow them to take advantage of U.S. taxpayers by allowing them to take seats away from U.S. and legal immigrants in colleges and rewarding them with misguided legislation like the DREAM ACT.

"After the president addressed the illegal-alien student’s question, the moderator of the event asked Obama, “Mr. President, my question will be as follows: With an executive order, could you be able to stop deportation of the students?”
Obama said, “There are enough laws on the books by Congress that are very clear in terms of how we have to enforce our immigration system that for me to simply, through executive order, ignore those congressional mandates, would not conform with my appropriate role as president.” 

Maybe we are getting somewhere here. Perhaps Obama finally is starting to understand that Congress and the American people have made it clear that we want illegal immigration to stop and we want something done about the illegal immigrants in this country who continue to violate U.S. immigration laws. We don't want to continue to reward them.  He's getting better but, still has a long way to go.
