Wasilla, Alaska (The Adobo Chronicles) - In a sharp turnaround that shocked both Democrats and Republicans, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin today threw her support for President Barack Obama’s executive actions on immigration.

Obama’s executive actions will benefit some 5 Million undocumented immigrants now in the U.S., notably parents of U.S. citizens or legal residents as well as those who have been brought to this country as young children.

“I have been doing a lot of soul-searching lately,” Palin said, “and I have come to the conclusion that it s about time we fixed our broken immigration system and welcome immigrants from all over the world who could greatly contribute to our society.” Her change of heart comes right before Americans celebrate Thanksgiving Day this week.

Palin said that it has recently been brought to her attention that the very first Thanksgiving in 1621 involved Native Americans making a food offering to undocumented immigrants — pilgrims from England.

In addition, the former Vice Presidential candidate acknowledged that she herself comes from a family of immigrants. Her ancestry is English, with German and Irish. She also has remote Dutch ancestry, and extremely remote Scottish roots.

“While we are a nation of laws, what is more important is that we are a nation of immigrants,” Palin said.

Upon hearing the news, President Obama called Palin to thank her and invited her to have beer with him at The White House after the Thanksgiving holiday.  Palin gladly accepted.

All’s well that ends well.

Macau, China (The Adobo Chronicles) - American Chris Algieri failed miserably to unseat World Boxing Welterweight title holder Filipino Manny Pacquiao last night. Pacquiao won the fight with a unanimous decision.

In a press conference after the fight, Algieri blamed Arnold Schwarzenneger and Sykvester Stallone for jinxing his chances to grab the title from Pacquiao. The former governor of California and the actor who played Rocky Balboa in the Hollywood film of the same title were both in the audience at the Venetian Macau.

At some point during the fight, Stallone took a selfie picture with his smart phone using a flash.  Algieri said he was blinded by the flash and got distracted, leading to the first of several  knockdowns he suffered from Pacquiao.

“I appreciated that they both came to personally witness the fight,” Algieri said, “but their presence proved to be bad luck for me.”
