Hispanic activists are wasting no time pressuring President Obama to give them their due for flooding the polls for his reelection.
Citing exit polls that show Obama received up to 71 percent of the Latino vote, Hispanic and pro-immigration reform groups are urging the president to move fast to use his election mandate to pressure foes into an immigration deal.
“President Obama unquestionably owes this historic victory to 71% of the Latino vote,” said the DRM Action Coalition which promotes the DREAM Act to provide children of undocumented workers special access to college. The group said that their big vote was motivated by Obama’s decision to let those children stay in the United States.
