Obama risked no political capital on immigration reform early on. Instead, he waited until 2012 and issued an executive order allowing DREAM Act wannabes to apply for "deferred action" that stops deportations and delivers work papers.
Obama overrode the will of Congress, so is it legal? Maybe voters will find out after the election.
Unashamed, the president told Ramos that the Latino community "can send a message that this is not something to use as a political football," by -- wait for it -- voting.
For Obama, of course. He never would use immigration as a political football.
