Today’s Fact Check: Debra Saunders on Obama

Welcome to what I intend to be a new feature on 92510 — fact-checking the Bay Area press. Today’s installment is conservative Chronicle columnist Debra J. Saunders, whom like many right-wingers, has moved even farther to the right in response to the Obama presidency. Saunders argued in her column yesterday that Obama “reneged on his 2008 campaign pledge to push immigration reform — with a path to citizenship for undocumented aliens — during his first year in office because well, it’s political poison.” But as any observer of the Washington scene knows, that’s not why Obama hasn’t taken up immigration as of yet.
