This is what Barack said at a town hall in DesMoines Monday in which he tries to erase the lines between citizens, illegal immigrants and immigrants. Only Native-Americans are from the United States.
“This whole anti-immigrant sentiment that’s out there in our politics right now is contrary to who we are. (Applause) Because unless you’re Native American, your family came from someplace else.
And although we are a nation of laws and we want people to follow the law, and I have been pushing Congress to make sure we have strong borders and we are keeping everybody moving through the legal processes.
Don’t pretend that somehow a hundred years ago the immigration was all smooth and strict — that’s not how it worked. There are a bunch of folks who came here from all over Europe, all throughout Asia, all throughout Central America, and certainly who came from Africa. It wasn’t some orderly process, that — where all the rules applied and all the rules were strict, and ‘I came the right way.’”
You are not an American unless you are a Native-American. You’re from somewhere else and you should have nothing to say about illegal immigrants flooding across the borders.
If you don’t want illegal immigration, you’re anti-immigrant (and a bigot, nativist, and xenophobe).
I am pretending I follow immigration law though I don’t and I’m blaming Congress because they won’t pass the awful Senate immigration bill.
All that needs to be done is for Congress to pass the bill I demand be passed.
A hundred years ago, there were no rules and people just came so no problem, we can do that now.
In conclusion, you’re all the same as the illegal immigrants, no difference, same rights for all, and I’m going to tell you who Americans are now.
He’s conflating legal immigrants with illegal immigrants. Barack Obama seems to be unaware that the Native-Americans also came from somewhere else and the tribes that were established when we came, had taken the land from other tribes, who took it from other tribes who took it from others.
He has a Marxist viewpoint about rights and land ownership.
