How serious is Obama about immigration reform? Not very.

On Tuesday, President Barack Obama had a meeting with various business, law enforcement, faith and elected officials to discuss how best to fix America’s immigration system. Sounds serious, right?

The released guest list suggests the meeting was little more than a brainstorm session of the left, lacking any real input from actual stakeholders on the border.

Instead of Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka got a seat at the table. Instead of Texas Gov. Rick Perry, Rev. Al Sharpton attended. Former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger was welcomed, but not a single sitting border-state governor was invited to attend.

And this is the Obama administration, so, as usual, George Soros’ Center for American Progress most definitely had a seat at the table.

So how serious was this immigration reform meeting? Check out the guest list and decide for yourself:
