Despite a promise to act on immigration reform by the end of summer, President Obama has decided to delay taking action on the issue until after November congressional elections. The decision to postpone means any political repercussions for trying to reform the immigration system by himself would come after the congressional midterm contests. “The truth of the matter is that the politics did shift mid-summer because of that problem,” he said. His action and words say that politics is more important than the people and that’s completely wrong. People on both sides of the immigration are debating and criticizing the postponement, including pro-immigration reform groups that are impatient for action.
