On Monday, post-American President Obama appeared on the Spanish network Univision to chat and take questions from non-reporters. (I can’t remember the last time he had a town hall with Americans in English.)
Unsurprisingly, the subjects were illegal immigration and amnesty. In answer to a question about deporting illegal alien students, Obama replied, “We want them to succeed.”
It would be nice if the President was more concerned that American citizens succeed — like having jobs and such.
Anyway, why can’t young people succeed in the countries of their birth? It’s arrogant to believe that a fulfilling life can only be lived in the United States.
In addition, a recent study from the Migration Policy Institute found that an estimated 1.2 million college-educated immigrants in the United States were unemployed, while another 350,000 were unemployed.
At least the President understands that his power does not extend to overturning immigration laws passed by the Congress
