Latinos furious at Obama on immigration delay, vow more pressure

Rep. Luis Gutierrez addresses delegates during the second session of the Democratic National Convention in CharlotteBy Julia Edwards WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Hispanic lawmakers and immigration advocates harshly criticized President Barack Obama’s decision to delay executive action on immigration and vowed to keep pressuring him to make bold changes. Democratic Representatives Luis Gutierrez and Tony Cardenas on Sunday accused Obama of playing politics the day after the president said he would wait until after November’s congressional elections to change policy on immigration. The announcement marked a reversal for Obama, who publicly promised to act by the end of summer. “But it almost never leads to fairness, to justice and to good public policy that you can be proud of.” Senate Democrats at risk of losing their seats in the November elections pressed the White House to hold off an executive order.
