« Sealing the border is unrealistic | Main | Obama Reneges on Key Agreement with Immigration Advocates »

“Abre” (Spanish for “open,” but also an acronym for “Anyone But Rahm Emanuel”)

Finally immigration reform has new life; with the departure of Rahm Emanuel from the White House. His total opposition to immigration reform kept reform from occurring under the Obama administration.

For example in 2005;
go to Rahm Emanuel no friend on immigration
By Ruben Navarrette, Jr., Special to CNN;
"Emanuel spent that year whipping up support among Democrats for the Border Protection, Antiterrorism, and Illegal Immigration Control Act, a terribly unimaginative enforcement-only bill proposed by then-House Judiciary Chairman James Sensenbrenner, R-Wisconsin".

Or in 2009/2010 you may read; Good riddance to Rahm Emanuel - blocked immigration reform in White House;

"He was particularly so on issues such as immigration where his overly cautious approach meant that no bill was every formulated to bring about immigration reform and Obama was never out front on the issue.

He misled the Hispanic and indeed Irish lobby continuously on that issue causing a very irate Congressman Luis Gutierrez to proclaim Emanuel to be the biggest snake he had encountered around Washington in his time there—and that is saying something".
