Typical strawman. No one is objecting to immigration, people are objecting to ILLEGAL immigration and a president who not only condones the breaking of the law, but assists in it, by violating the Constitution, Mr. President. Not to mention that “Native Americans” are not a static entity, all of them were immigrants as well.
Via The Independent:
President Obama quite succinctly summed up the absurdity of the Republicans’ issues with his immigration reform in Chicago yesterday, arguing that perhaps the only people who can legitimately be pissed off about illegal immigrants are Native Americans.
Returning to his hometown to speak, the president tried to place his recent executive action, which saved five million immigrants from deportation, within a great American tradition of welcoming foreigners.
“If you look at the history of immigration in this country, each successive wave there have been periods where the folks who were already here have said, ‘Well I don’t want those folks,'” he said. “Even though the only people who have the right to say that are some Native Americans.”
