Immigration in Inauguration

For what it's worth, Barack Obama did mention immigration in

Our journey is not complete until we find a better way to welcome the striving, hopeful immigrants who still see America as a land of opportunity -- until bright young students and engineers are enlisted in our workforce rather than expelled from our country.

That's not much, but especially in short remarks it matters. With immigration reform there's not much more to say. It's all about Republican electoral incentives.

Successful and Beautiful Inauguration of President Obama - Everything can be summarized with a word : DIVERSITY - America the diverse - It is also breathing a sigh of relief because America has been saved of a horrible destiny : Racist Plutocracy

What the GOP wanted was a Racist Plutocracy and Misogynist Theocracy, but the USA was saved by President Obama and the Democratic Party. ..... - I hope that the Republican Party becomes more tolerant and abandons its Racism and constant Dog Whistles.

But somehow the realist inside me trumps over the idealist. I know the Reality is that the GOP is very racist and filled with hatred and antagonism against all Minorities. And the theocrats are very powerful inside that Party.

The Republican Party has to lose two or three more Presidential Elections before it changes this behavior.

The fear that President Obama is going to transform America into a "Welfare State", expressed by intelligent and kind Republican Mr George F. Will is a wrong vision of the Future.

I don't know what sufferings or events in his formative years Mr Will had to undergo to be filled now with such a pessimistic idea. It just doesn't coincide or concatenate with reality.
