President Barack Obama wants immigration, but he also wants Congress to do the heavy lifting, The Hill reports. That’s trademark Obama style, mirroring his approach to healthcare, financial reform, energy reform, and the budget. Indeed, congressmen on both sides of the aisle have complained about his lack of leadership on these issues.

Immigration reform, obama, congressAs for immigration reform, it has little chance of passage without the president’s full engagement. And even if he does get heavily involved the gap between Republican and Democratic views on the issue is huge.

Some critics speculate that Obama is bringing up immigration now simply to assure Hispanic voters that he agrees with them on the issue so that he doesn’t lose their votes next November.
