Even on July 4, President Obama can’t stop campaigning.
On the 236th anniversary of America’s declaration of independence from Great Britain, President Obama has decided to celebrate in a rather unusual way: by politicizing immigration. President Obama trotted out his teleprompter for a naturalization ceremony for military members – a beautiful event. Except that Obama couldn’t keep his yap shut about the DREAM Act:
Or, we could just allow America to celebrate these immigrants who wanted to serve their country in the most courageous possible way, rather than turning their citizenship ceremony into a political talking point.
This is particularly offensive to me; my wife waited some 12 years to obtain her full citizenship, and just swore her citizenship oath a few months ago. Clearly something must be done about the illegal immigrants in America. But had President Obama used the grand occasion of her citizenship ceremony to stump for a shortcut for illegal immigrants, she (and I) would rightfully have been upset.
