He recommends that lawmakers make a resolution for the undocumented aliens in the country. It is stated that Obama has been cautious with his policy that would affect the Hispanic community and the proponents of immigration reforms. There is also a slight possibility that any comprehensive measure, including the Dream Act, will be passed, says the author.
