Adelina: Personally, I feel that this lack of action by the House isn’t just about immigration reform, but,as we have seen, any proposal that President Barack Obama puts forward will be and has been rejected, not just in their discourse, but also their actions. Conservatives and the Republican Party have the slogan to vote “no.” They refuse to support any initiative Obama puts forward. It is an open secret that virtually no Republican will support any proposal by an African American president. This is a problem of racism.”
