Romney, Obama say no to immigration details
United States, 29th October: US President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are shying away from revealing details of the things to be done once elected.
And that’s exactly against the representative democracy.
US voters eager to know immigration plans--Voters in the US want to have details of the steps to be taken by the elected candidate before they proceed towards voting in his favor. That’s because they feel concerned about the fact that both Democrats and Republicans usually don’t do things as promised to their voters.
And this leads to a disconnecting cord between promises and actions for voters. While Mitt Romney says he will get things done, but did not indulge in any further details.
Similarly, US President Barack Obama too followed on the same footsteps failing to provide any clues about the immigration reforms likely to be introduced once he gets elected in the forthcoming US elections.
Obama needs to divulge a detailed plan with regard to expected US immigration reforms if elected this time. And Romney too should give voters actual details about immigration reforms, and not just fairy tales.
What do US voters think--The general perception among the US voters is that Democrats are most likely to favor immigration in the US. And if Republicans get selected, they will work towards cutting down immigration in the US, including legal and undocumented immigration.
And vague statements by both the candidates like bringing significant improvements in the US economy or helping US small businesses are a big no-no.
US elections will need clear policy details from both Obama and Romney to prevent the US elections from becoming ‘American Idol’. Only this can help voters proceed ahead by voting meaningfully.
What voters are interested to know is—
• Whether Romney will increase annual US immigration intake?
• Will there be a US Guest-Worker program for undocumented immigrants?
• Will he continue the US Deportation relief for undocumented immigrants until a new version of the US Dream Act is enacted by the US Congress?
• What Obama will do if Americans vote in his favor and why exactly should they believe in him for a second time especially keeping in view the fact that he failed to deliver what he promised in 2008.
