En el mensaje de esta semana, Cecilia Muñoz habló sobre las medidas que estamos tomando para responder a los casos del Ébola en el país, mientras trabajamos para contener la epidemia en su origen en África Occidental. Esta semana continuamos centrándonos en la preparación para el hogar, con la creación de nuevas pautas de los Centros De Control de Enfermedad y el anuncio de nuevas para que todos los nuevos viajeros procedentes de los tres países afectados se dirigen hacia uno de los cinco aeropuertos designados para revisiones de control. El Presidente hizo hincapié en que es importante saber los hechos, en lugar del miedo, como los neoyorquinos hicieron ayer, cuando continuaron con su rutina diaria. El Ébola no es una enfermedad fácilmente transmisible, y los Estados Unidos es el líder mundial en la lucha para acabar con esa enfermedad en el África occidental.

obama, don’t touch my girlfriend. mike tells president obama don’t touch my girlfriend as he casts vote, man to barack obama “don’t touch my girlfriend” video. Mike Jones, Cooper’s boyfriend, told President Obama, “don’t touch my girlfriend.” “I said, I know you’re Mr. President, but don’t touch my girlfriend,” Jones said. Yep, Jones teased the president. “I didn’t know what to say. I was just shaking. I said ‘Oh boy, this is the president. What am I supposed to do?” Cooper said. When President Barack Obama voted in Chicago yesterday, he did so next to Aia Cooper, whose boyfriend was careful to make sure the chief executive didn’t get any notions. “Don’t touch my girlfriend,” Mike Jones joked as he walked by. “I really wasn’t planning on it,” Obama said, and then to a clearly mortified Cooper: “Now there’s an example of a brother just embarrassing you for no reason, no reason whatsoever. Now you’re gonna be going back home, talking to your friends saying, ‘I can’t believe Mike — he is such a fool. Fortunately the president was nice about it, so it was all right.’”


“He gave me a hug and a kiss, on the cheek,” Cooper later told CNN. “Just the cheek – please, Michelle, don’t come after me – just the cheek!”

The program on the South Lawn will have a live audience that will include hundreds of military service members, veterans, and their families. The event will feature performances by Mary J. Blige, Common, John Fogerty, Willie Nelson, Romeo Santos, as well as active duty military members Army SGT. Christiana R. Ball, Marine Corps Capt. Matt Smith and Capt. John Ed Auer, with Don Was as music director. The rock band Daughtry will also perform via satellite from a USO concert at Yokota Air Base in Japan.

Footage of their participation will be included in the concert event and the broadcast. The program will also be broadcast on November 11, Veterans Day, via the American Forces Network to American service men and women and civilians at U.S. Department of Defense locations around the world.


As with previous White House music events, the First Lady will host a special daytime workshop for students on November 6.

Associated Press: President Obama Mulls Massive Move On Immigration.


It's Steppin Time.

POTUSA Obama Mulls Massive Move on Immigration


Such a large-scale move on immigration could scramble election-year politics and lead some conservative Republicans to push for impeachment proceedings against President Barack Obama, a prospect White House officials have openly discussed.


Yet there’s little sign that the urgent humanitarian situation in South Texas, where unaccompanied minors have been showing up by the tens of thousands from Central America, has impeded Obama from making plans to address some portion of the 11.5 million immigrants now in this country illegally. Obama announced late last month that congressional efforts to remake the nation’s dysfunctional immigration system were dead and he would proceed on his own authority to fix the system where he could.


Since then he’s asked Congress for $3.7 billion to deal with the crisis of unaccompanied youths, a request that’s gone unmet even as the House and the Senate scramble to see if they can vote on some solution to the crisis this week before adjourning for their annual August recess.


Meanwhile, White House officials led by Domestic Policy Council Director Cecilia Munoz and White House Counsel Neil Eggleston, along with Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, have been working to chart a plan on executive actions Obama could take, hosting frequent meetings with interest groups and listening to recommendations from immigration advocates, law enforcement officials, religious leaders, Hispanic lawmakers and others.


Advocates and lawmakers who were in separate meetings Friday said that administration officials are weighing a range of options including reforms to the deportation system and ways to grant relief from deportation to targeted populations in the country, likely by expanding Obama’s two-year-old directive that granted work permits to certain immigrants brought here illegally as youths. That program, called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, has been extended to more than 500,000 immigrants so far.


Advocates would like to see deferred action made available to anyone who would have been eligible for eventual citizenship under a comprehensive immigration bill the Senate passed last year, which would be around 9 million people. But Obama told them in a meeting a month ago to “right-size” expectations, even as he pledged to be aggressive in steps he does take.


That’s led advocates to focus on other populations Obama might address, including parents or legal guardians of U.S. citizen children (around 3.8 million people as of 2009, according to an analysis by Pew Research’s Hispanic Trends Project) and parents or legal guardians of DACA recipients (perhaps 500,000 to 1 million people, according to the Fair Immigration Reform Movement).


“Our parents deserve to live without the fear of deportation,” Maria Praeli, a 21-year-old from New Haven who came to the United States from Peru 16 years ago, said at a protest outside the White House on Monday. “It is time for the president to go big and to go bold.”


Another focus could be the potentially hundreds of thousands of people who might be eligible for green cards today if current law didn’t require them to leave the country for 10 years before applying for one.


At the same time, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce says it is actively working to determine whether there are steps Obama could take by executive action that could help the business community.


For Obama, the political repercussions of broad executive action on immigration could be unpredictable, and extreme.


Republicans are warning he could provoke a constitutional crisis.


“It would be an affront to the people of this country which they will never forgive, it would be a permanent stain on your presidency,” Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., said on the Senate floor Monday, while urging language to block such executive action be made part of any legislation to address the border crisis.


House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., announced plans to use an oversight hearing on the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services agency Tuesday to raise questions about Obama’s plans, which he warned could “worsen the border crisis and encourage many more to come.”


On the other side, some Democrats have debated the best timing for Obama to take executive action, raising questions as to whether acting before the midterms could hurt vulnerable Senate Democrats in close races while boosting turnout among the GOP base.


But liberal advocates noted that Obama’s move on deferred action two years ago gave him a boost heading into his re-election and could help this year with Latino voters discouraged over the failure of immigration reform legislation and record-high deportations on Obama’s watch. Republicans would be in a position of deciding whether to come out in favor of deporting sympathetic groups, such as parents, and many liberals say impeachment talk would only shore up Democratic base voters.


“Most Democrats will be thrilled” if Obama acts boldly on immigration, said Frank Sharry, executive director of America’s Voice, a leading advocacy group. “And Republicans will keep lurching to the right and cementing their reputation as the anti-immigrant party.”


Associated Press writers Jim Kuhnhenn and Alicia A. Caldwell contributed to this report.

A Day in the Life

Yesterday, President Obama had lunch in Minneapolis with a woman named Rebekah, who wrote him a few months ago, to share the challenges facing her family and how hard they need to work just to make ends meet.


The President and Rebekah spent the day together — grabbing burgers and holding a town hall with other members of the community. He spoke with folks about what’s on their mind, and the issues that Americans across the country deal with every day.











President Barack Obama - Write a letter.


Yesterday, I had lunch with a woman named Rebekah at Matt’s Bar in Minneapolis.


Rebekah wrote me a letter earlier this spring telling me about the challenges facing her family. More and more, she told me, she and her husband are working harder and harder just to get by.


So I decided to reply to her letter in person.


Rebekah and I spent the day together — we stopped for burgers before holding a town hall with other members of the community and small business owners, to hear directly from folks about what’s on their mind.


I’ll be doing more of these trips over the course of the summer, visiting people who have written me, to spend a day in their cities and towns. Because speaking directly with the folks I’m working for every day is the best way to help more Americans understand why growing opportunity in this country is so important.


So if you’ve got a story you want to share with me — about how you’re doing, what challenges you face, and what’s working for you — I want to hear from you.


When Rebekah wrote me, she said, “I’m pretty sure this is a silly thing to do, to write the President.”


But it’s not a silly thing at all. It means so much to me to read your letters. They remind me exactly who we’re fighting for every single day.


Because, as a nation, we’ve made it through some tough times. Over the past 51 months, our businesses have created 9.4 million new jobs. But we have more work to do to open the doors of opportunity for more Americans. That’s part of what makes these visits so important — I want you to know that I’m keeping up this fight until everyone who works hard has the chance to succeed.


If you’re feeling inspired, drop me a line. Tell me about your family, your neighborhood — or simply how you’re doing.


I’m looking forward to hearing from you.



President Barack Obama
