    I agree with JR. I think we also should look closely at the administration’s lawsuit and try to force an injunction from SB 1070 going into effect this month. What it the “progress” that Obama mentions? More deportation, detentions and deaths? We cannot allow the narrative that we are making progress on immigration law to be passed on.

    Sadly dishonest and disappointing. It’s as expected however. Our job is not to coddle this administration but to show them why this kind of liberal response is inhumane and that one speech (or 20) will not be enough to appease us. This is a call to action for the immigrant justice movement.
