Poor illegal aliens, following the law is just too hard says our president. Pat is not buying that
Is it really “too hard” to follow the immigration laws of the United States?
Obama thinks so. In his Twitter town hall yesterday he said,
We’ve got an immigration system that’s broken right now, where too many folks are breaking the law but also our laws make it too hard for talented people to contribute and be part of our society. And we’ve always been a nation of laws and a nation of immigrants. And so we need comprehensive immigration reform, part of which would allow entrepreneurs and high-skilled individuals to stay here — because we want to be attracting that talent here.
It certainly is not too hard for hundreds of thousands of LEGAL immigrant every year Mr. President!
Each year, about 680,000 U.S. immigrants from all corners of the globe take the Oath of Allegiance, in which they promise to “support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of America against all enemies,” says the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, which conducts naturalization ceremonies year-round.
