Progressive Praises Obama's Immigration Actions and Its Impact on Elections

Yay, Democrats! Er, Democracy!

Think Progress's Esther Lee is beaming with glee over President Obama's executive actions over illegal immigrants because of the huge impact it will have on elections in America.

In a new "Isn't That Something" video, Lee states with a smile:

Rapid demographic changes are providing voters of color with great potential to influence future elections.

"In 2016," she adds, "1.5 million of these citizen relatives will be eligible to vote." Barely able to contain her excitement, she continues: "By 2020, that number jumps to 2.25 million, as more and more children reach voting age."

Lee concludes:

And eligible voters with a direct connection to undocumented immigrants who would qualify for deportation relief, could very well swing the next election. Now, isn't that something?

It sure is.
