Guest Blogger: Jose Aristimuño “Semana decisiva para la reforma migratoria de Obama”

Con el regreso del Presidente Obama de su viaje diplomático por Asia, y el año ya por terminarse, Barack Obama ya se está preparando para firmar lo que muchos llaman "una de las decisiones políticas más importantes de su presidencia". En Washington, ya se rumorea que posiblemente tan pronto como esta semana, el Presidente esté listo para tomar acción de forma ejecutiva. Sin embargo, antes de que el Presidente tome una decisión definitiva, ya los Republicanos se han visto atacando al Presidente por su decisión, acusándolo de que estas acciones ejecutivas son inconstitucionales y un abuso … [Read More...]
