The Obama administration’s decision to delay taking executive action on immigration until after the November midterms did not sit well with Fusion’s Jorge Ramos.

Shortly after news of the delay broke on Saturday, the popular Spanish-language news anchor and immigration reform advocate responded forcefully on Twitter, calling out President Obama for breaking a pledge to take action before the end of the summer.

It’s not the first time Ramos held Obama’s feet to the fire on the issue. In an interview during the 2012 campaign, the anchor repeatedly questioned Obama on the lack of progress made on on immigration reform.

At a press conference earlier this year, Ramos took House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) to task for “blocking immigration reform.”
