NCLR President and CEO Janet Murguia greets President Obama during the National Council of La Raza annual conference luncheon at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel in Washington, July 25

The audience applauded when President Obama said some people want him to bypass Congress and sign an executive order on immigration. “And believe me, right now, dealing with Congress …. the idea,” he smiled as the crowd started chanting, “Yes, you can.”

“Believe me, the idea of doing things on my own is very tempting,” he repeated as the crowd laughed.

there is no “us” and “them” – in this country, there is only “us”

“There’s no doubt the debate over how to fix all this has been a fractured, often painful one. Some seek political upside in distorting the facts and dividing our people. Some take advantage of economic anxiety to stoke fear of those who look, or think, or worship differently – to inflame passions between “us” and “them.” Well, I have news for them: it won’t work. Because there is no “us” and “them”. In this country, there is only “us.” There is no Latino America or Black America or White America or Asian America. There is only the United States of America.”
