The following is a paragraph from the Obama speech today:
“… we’ve always defined ourselves as a nation of immigrants -- a nation that welcomes those willing to embrace America’s precepts. Indeed, it is this constant flow of immigrants that helped to make America what it is. The scientific breakthroughs of Albert Einstein, the inventions of Nikola Tesla, the great ventures of Andrew Carnegie’s U.S. Steel and Sergey Brin’s Google, Inc. -– all this was possible because of immigrants.”
Those are Obama’s words in his immigration speech today. He seems to have left out a word. Correct that first line to mean a “nation of L-E-G-A-L immigrants.” Having had everything handed to him on a silver platter, Obama has no clue to what my parents and grandparents (and millions of others) had to go through on Ellis Island and afterward. They were legal immigrants. And so are millions of others. And so are Einstein, Tesla, and Brin.
The fact is that Obama is only seeking the Latino vote. Obama would have deported Einstein, Tesla, and Brin in a hot minute, you can be sure, just as he deported my very intelligent Russian friend Alexei Vorobyov in December of 2009.
Obama has a Democrat controlled Congress. Obama could pass whatever bill he likes about immigration. Instead, he wants to make speeches. In his speech today, he left something out. A bill, a proposal, a set of specifics. On the other hand, Obama preferred to ostracize Arizona, a state which has unfortunately been abandoned by the federal government.
Of course, there is a hidden agenda to all this. Obama is hoping that his Homeland Security Secretary, Janet Napolitano, will relieve him of the importunate questions regarding his birth certificate. In short, Obama wants a pathway to citizenship for himself, and the votes of illegal aliens who he invites to stream across the border.
