Obama Hopes For New Voter Registration for 11 Million New Democrat Voters, Pushes For Immigration Reform

President Barack Obama renewed his push for U.S. immigration reform on Thursday, reaching out to Hispanic voters despite minimal chances that Congress will pass such legislation this year.

In a broad speech that did not break new policy ground, Obama, a Democrat, called for Republican support to pass a law that addresses the 11 million illegal immigrants in the country without disrupting the economy or violating American values.

Obama has been under pressure to keep his promise from the 2008 presidential campaign to overhaul U.S. immigration rules. A tough new law in Arizona has brought the issue to the forefront of public debate, galvanizing Hispanics, who are an important constituency for November’s congressional elections.

Obama changes the subject again to divert attention away from problems with  oil spill,unemployment,Afghanistan, and economy  towards  immigration reform and the possible  registration of up to 11 million new Democrat voters. May be hard to do with no existing bill.
