On 25 March 1965, Martin Luther King led thousands of nonviolent protesters to the steps of the capitol in Montgomery, Alabama, from Selma, Alabama to promote civil rights for black Americans.

On Firday Barack Obama invoked the “spirit of Selma” to justify his executive amnesty plan that will replace black workers with illegal immigrants.
Townhall reported:

President Obama invoked the “spirit of Selma” to justify his executive amnesty policies Friday in an interview with Sirius XM’s Joe Madison.

“The notion that some kid that was brought here when he was two or three years old might somehow be deported at the age of 20 or 25 even though they’ve grown up as American, that’s not who we are,” Obama said.

“That’s not true to the spirit of what the march on Selma was about,” Obama continued. “When you think about the principle that was upheld that day and in subsequent days at the Edmund Pettus Bridge, it was the promise of an inclusive America, it was the promise of an America where everybody was equal under the law,” he said.

Obama’s plan to grant work permits to millions of illegal aliens will reportedly devastate the black community. According to a government report, the increase in millions of new workers will have a deleterious effect on low-skilled American workers, particularly black workers.
