It's no secret that President Obama could heal the pain of immigrant families facing separation today with the stroke of a pen. But instead of taking action now, the president has ordered a "review" of deportation policies.
The Latino and immigrant community has been criminalized and targeted for several years. As a Latino, I find the Obama administration's public relations move to use Cecilia Muñoz, a former immigrant rights advocate, as the spokesperson for their worst immigration policies despicable.
For the president to win re-election, he must garner a significant percentage of Latino votes. SCOMM, the, massive and controversial deportations program that President Obama is championing, is one sure way for him to lose the election.
