Michelle Obama hunger strike solidarity, RIGHT!


Michelle Obama sent out a Tweet praising the pro-illegal immigration hunger strikers camping out on the National Mall Tuesday and President Obama added, "I want them to know we hear you, we're with you. The whole country hears you."

Maybe the the President and First Lady should join in on the hunger strike to show their solidarity instead of just talking about it. What do you think?

Read more on the comments below by the President and First Lady from The Washington Examiner:

First lady Michelle Obama on Tuesday praised a group of immigration-reform advocates who are fasting to draw attention to the issue and pressure Congress to act.

“As families begin to gather for Thanksgiving, I’m thinking of the brave #Fast4Families immigration reform advocates. We’re with you. -mo,”tweeted the first lady. Tweets written personally by Michelle Obama are signed “-mo.”

The group Fast for Families is in the 15th day of their hunger strike. The activists have set up a tent on the National Mall and were visited by Vice President Biden earlier in the week.

President Obama has called immigration reform a second-term priority. A comprehensive Senate immigration bill though has not been taken up by the GOP-controlled House. Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, has said he will only move on immigration reform through a piecemeal approach.
