It’s a rare thing when I read something and have an immediate, visceral, and negative reaction to it. I didn’t even make it past the first sentence of the second paragraph before I knew this article was crap.
The Obama administration has no intention of pushing comprehensive immigration reform any time soon, but with his nomination of Judge Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court, the president may have found a suitable consolation prize for the Hispanic community.
A prize is due. Hispanics gave 67 percent of their votes to President Obama, delivering key states like Colorado, Nevada and New Mexico to his electoral column, and sending him two new Democratic senators and three new House Democrats from those states alone.
No one is ever “due” anything in this life, much less preferential treatment from the government simply because you voted on a ballot written in Spanish.
The only thing any of us are entitled to is the right to try our best, unfettered by governmental interference either for or against us.
