Comment: Mind The Promise Gap - The purpose of ILW.COM Obama's Deferred Action Promise Graph is to hold the president accountable for the promises he has made to the DREAMers. The graph visually demonstrates the gap, if any, between the promises of benefits and the actual and the projected delivery of benefits. Since we started publishing it last week, we have received a few comments graph, which are reproduced below:

"Lets see if Obama delivers on his commitment."
By An Immigrant
"We have two choices in this election, a man that made a promise and reneged on it 4 years ago and then, a man that has lived with integrity, sharing millions of his wealth with his church and other charities. A liar and deceiver will not be my choice in the upcoming election. Immigrants are forced to show certified documents at all levels of the petition process and yet the man in office has yet to produce a certified document. I hope the immigrants in our country are not fooled again by this political ploy. President Bush tried to get the Dream Act in Congress. I believe it was 5 votes that kept it from passing and guess which party was in the majority at that time: Democrats. I will take my chances with the generous and successful businessman. Our office is prepared to help as many as possible and donate our time to Catholic Charities to help fill out these forms. We are very much aware there may be only a window of time for many that qualify, so we need to focus on that and put our energy towards that end. Do keep us updated...on the graph, but Obama does not have my vote this time around."
