I THINK TODAY PRES. OBAMA SHOULD SET THE COURSE WITH THE HISPANIC CAUCUS. I FEEL THAT HE SHOULD LET THEM KNOW THAT HIS DUTY IS TO PROTECT LEGAL AMERICAN CITIZENS, WORKERS, AND VOTERS! IT SHOULD NOT BE HIS POSITION TO HONOR THE REQUESTS AND AGENDAS OF THE HISPANIC CAUCUS AND ALLOW THESE INDIVIDUALS TO SHARE IN THE BENEFITS THAT LEGAL AMERICAN CITIZENS, WORKERS, AND VOTERS WILL RECEIVE, AS A RESULT OF BEING LEGAL CITIZENS. THE PEOPLE THAT THE CAUCUS REPRESENTS WOULD BE ENTITLED TO THESE SAME BENEFITS WHEN THEY ATTAIN LEGAL CITIZENSHIP, AS MOST OF OUR IMMIGRANT PARENTS AND GRAND PARENTS HAVE DONE. NO AMNEASSTY, NO JOBS, AND NO HEALTH CARE FOR THESE INDIVIDUALS WHO DO NOT ENTER THIS COUNTRY LEGALLY AND BECOME AMERICAN CITIZENS, WORKERS, AND VOTERS!!

I agree completely with you Mr. Balcerowski.
