Because to Barack Obama – open, porous borders are an American value.
Obama says that officials who support immigration law and secure borders “aren’t the kinds of folks who represent our core American values.”
Can you believe it?
Did he think it would not leak out to the masses?
The Caucus reported:
In a radio interview that aired on Univision on Monday, Mr. Obama sought to assure Hispanics that he would push an immigration overhaul after the midterm elections, despite fierce Republican opposition.
“If Latinos sit out the election instead of saying, ‘We’re gonna punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us,’ if they don’t see that kind of upsurge in voting in this election, then I think it’s gonna be harder and that’s why I think it’s so important that people focus on voting on November 2.”
