Obama Campaign Sends ‘Dreamers’ Fundraising Email Hours after Amnesty Announcement

(CNSNews.com) – Seven hours after President Barack Obama announced that some illegal aliens would be allowed to stay in the United States and could be allowed to work here, Katherine Archuleta, Obama’s national campaign director, e-mailed a fundraising letter seeking donations to his re-election effort.

The e-mail, with the subject line “wonderful news,” contains links to the website, where visitors can listen to Obama’s speech on immigration he gave at 2:08 p.m. on Friday in the White House Rose Garden.

Archuleta – who was hailed as the first Latina to run a major presidential campaign when she was named director in June 2011 – sent the e-mail at 9:08 p.m.

“Thanks to our president, this nation’s immigration policy just became more fair and more just,” the letter begins.

“Effective immediately, the Department of Homeland Security is taking steps to ensure that young, undocumented immigrants who were brought here as children by their parents, and who have followed the law since then, will be able to request temporary relief from deportation proceedings — and will be allowed to apply for authorization to work in this country,” the letter continues.

The following paragraph is in bold font:

“They’re a group that we’ve come to call the “Dreamers” — and today, the country they love is telling them they should be able to dream as big as they want,” the letter states.

The letter said that Obama has been trying “for years” to get Congress to act on immigration reform.

“They haven’t,” the letter states. “So he did.”

The letter states Obama’s executive decision will help “hundreds of thousands” of illegal aliens.

“They study in our schools, play in our parks, and pledge allegiance to our flag. Some of them have served in our Armed Forces,” the letter states. They’ve started businesses; they’ve started families. They are Americans in every way but on paper.”

Archuleta notes in the letter that if the Democrat-proposed “Dream Act,” which gives amnesty to certain young illegal aliens who were brought to this country as children, was approved by Congress, Obama’s new policy would be unnecessary.

On Sunday on CNN, host Candy Crowly asked senior White House advisor David Plouffe if Obama’s announcement was “political.”

“It was not done with some political consideration,” Crowley said.

“It was not, Candy,” Plouffe replied.

“Five months before the election?” Crowley asked.

“Well, listen, who knows how the politics will turn out, but this decision was the right decision…”

“And how can you say that?” Crowley asked.

“Well, we’ll see. I have ceased making predictions on things, because we will see how they turn out.”

    They pledge allegiance to our flag was part of the presidents message. I am mentally challenged but wasn’t it him and his kind that made it illegal for our own children to pledge in school? This girly man lies so much and you can not even hear his lies. The king is naked can’t you see?
    On his behalf I imagine they could be meeting in secret to say the pledge of allegiance.
