Is there anything President Obama doesn’t have the self-serving gall to politicize?
The president decided that today’s naturalization ceremony for immigrants serving in the United States military was a sweet opportunity to talk up a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants.
A roomful of immigrants — active duty service members who presumably played by the rules — had to listen to Obama bash our imperfect union and tout policies that spit in the faces of everyone who came here legally.
“We’re still perfecting our union, still extending the promise of America,” Obama told the group. “That’s why, as another step forward, we’re lifting the shadow of deportation from serving — from deserving young people who were brought to this country as children. It’s why we still need a DREAM Act — to keep talented young people who want to contribute to our society and serve our country. It’s why we need — why America’s success demands — comprehensive immigration reform.”
On Independence Day, no less.
The president tweeted this shortly after the ceremony.
The country Obama loves is one where the president welcomes new citizens by forcing them to hear about amnesty on the very day they take the oath of citizenship.
What a disgrace.
