President Obama will be giving a major speech today concerning immigration reform. This morning, prior to his speech, Obama's senior advisor, David Axelrod, posted this letter to the Whitehouse web site providing a barebones outline to one of the major issues that will likely be addressed in the immigration reform debate. Here is Alexrod's letter:
Vice President Biden visited the Gulf Coast yesterday under a storm of anger and a natural one powering through the western Gulf of Mexico.
Across the Gulf coastal region, members of the seafood industry are upset and concerned about the growing desperate plight of their families and businesses.
As each day goes by, another seafood industry icon closes its doors while the industry leaders assert that there are plenty of shrimps and fish safe to eat and available to go to market.
What did Governor Bobby Jindal discuss with Joe Biden during the Vice President’s visit to Louisiana on June 29?
Certainly one of the issues was the gulf deep drilling moratorium that is high on the agenda of BP oil spill related issues.
Here are just some of the comments Jindal gave to the media during the press conference held following his visit with Biden.
Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal discussed his visit with Vice President Joseph Biden who travelled to Louisiana and other parts of the Gulf Coast.
Jindal said the two discussed a number of issues and heard from the commercial fishermen who have been gravely impacted by the BP oil spill and the gulf deep water drilling moratorium imposed by President Barack Obaman after the Deep Horizon rig exploded.
Vice President Biden is visiting the Gulf Goast today under a storm of anger and a natural one in the western part of the Gulf of Mexico.
Across the that region, members of the seafood industry are upset and concerned about the growing desperate plight of their families and businesses.
As each day goes by, another seafood industry icon closes while the industry leaders assert that there is plenty of shrimps and fish safe to eat and available to go to market.
And, as June now makes way for July, and as days of this crises mount, local government officials are getting more frantic, disillusioned and upset at what they see as BP and the federal government’s slow, inadequate and sometimes feeble response.
On Monday, Governor Bobby Jindal's Secretary of the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals Secretary issued this press release in relationship to the DeepWater Horizon Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
BATON ROUGE - In a letter to BP America's Chief Operating Officer Doug Suttles on Monday, Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals Secretary Alan Levine requested $10 million from BP to provide mental health services to Louisiana residents affected by the oil spill.
Last night, long serving U.S. Senator Robert Byrd (D-WV) passed away at the age of 92. Byrd was first elected 52 years ago in a much different era. Before his Senate career, Byrd was a recruiter for the KKK. Three years after he supposedly left the organization, he was still writing letters on behalf of the organization. In 1946, Byrd wrote the Imperial Wizard of the KKK, “The Klan is needed today as never before and I am anxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia” and “in every state in the Union.”
