Obama's Moment of Truth
Is He For America or Mexico & the Globalists? 

Lou Dobbs Tonight -- CNN -- November 11  

    Kitty Pilgrim: Barack Obama's position on immigration during the campaign was a calculated formula to draw Latino voters. He called for beefing up border security and enforcing existing immigration laws, but he also supported amnesty, saying immigration enforcement raids were, quote, "terrorizing communities".
    
Obama: They are counting on us to stop the hateful rhetoric filling our airwaves and rise above the fear and rise above the demagoguery and finally enact comprehensive immigration reform.
    Pilgrim: But a new Zogby poll taken after the election, found fewer than a third of Obama supporters favor amnesty for illegal aliens. In fact, the majority of voters, 60 percent, said cracking down on employers of illegal aliens is important to them. Fifty-seven percent of voters said amnesty would harm American workers and further strain public resources.
    Steve Camarota: So, the question for Obama is -- is he going to want to own this issue? Is he going to go out on a limb and face all the public opposition to an amnesty approach?
