The President Meets with Grassroots activists

I’m impressed.  The President has met with a number of grassroots activists groups to discuss immigration reform.  I think he may be getting an ear full of reasons why giving a path to amnesty is a bad idea…oh wait, after taking a look at the ‘grassroots groups’ I may have looked at this wrong…what do you think:

·         Eliseo Medina, Executive Vice President, Service Employee International Union

·         Lillian Rodríguez López , President, Hispanic Federation/Chair, National Hispanic Leadership Agenda

·         The Most Reverend John C. Wester, Bishop of Salt Lake City, Catholic Church

·         Deepak Bhargava, Executive Director, Center for Community Change (CCC)

·         Ali Noorani, Executive Director, National Immigration Forum

·         Reverend Luis Cortes, President, Esperanza USA

·         Clarissa Martínez De Castro, Director of Immigration and National Campaigns, National Council of La Raza

·         Angelica Salas, Director, Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles (CHIRLA)

·         Carlos Saavedra, National Coordinator of the United We Dream Network

·         John W. Wilhelm, General President, Hotel Employees and Restaurant Employees (HERE) International Union

·         Joseph Hansen, International President, United Food and Commercial Workers International Union (UFCW)

·         Gustavo Torres, Executive Director, CASA De Maryland

·         Chung-Wha Hong, Executive Director, New York Immigration Coalition

·         Joshua Hoyt, Executive Director, Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights

These don’t look like they may be giving him any of the cons of amnesty, I wonder where he gets that information?
