A LITTLE TOO MUCH LIKE W:

Raid on illegals dismays Obama backers: Rights groups see broken 'commitment' on illegals policy (Stephen Dinan, February 26, 2009, Washington Times)

Immigrant rights groups blasted President Obama on Wednesday for breaking what they called his "personal commitment" to change Bush-era immigration raids after U.S. authorities raided an engine machine shop in Washington state and detained illegal immigrants.

The Obama administration itself seemed taken aback by the raid by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents, with Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano vowing to Congress that she would "get to the bottom of this."

"The secretary is not happy and this is not her policy," a Homeland Security official said Wednesday evening, speaking on the condition of anonymity because the secretary's review is ongoing.


George Bush needed to pretend to care about these raids -- and the "fence" -- to quiet his Right. The UR has no such need. Just pass the Amnesty.
