Having had enough of President Obama‘s “executive privilege,” Academy Award-winning actor Jon Voight said this week that the president “must be stopped.”
Voight, a rare Hollywood conservatives, ripped Obama on a number of issues, including illegal immigration, and called on Americans to “voice their outrage,” according to the Washington Times.
Despite polls showing that the country doesn’t support the action, Obama is widely expected to circumvent Congress with an executive order addressing illegal immigration, possibly as early as next Friday.
“He wants to legalize all the illegal Mexicans, and every other illegal immigrant from other countries as well,” Voight told the Times in a Veterans Day interview. “Why? For their vote, for the 2016 election, for the Democrats.”
“It will make no difference on the billions of dollars it will cost the American taxpayers,” Voight continued. “It made no difference on the latest illegals he let come across the borders a few months ago. Children – unaccompanied by their parents, carrying all kind of illnesses – assimilating them into our society and our schools.”
Voight condemned Obama for not getting involved in the release of Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi, who was released last week from a Mexican prison. He said the soldier at one point tried to kill himself by plunging a broken light bulb into his neck, so as to “not endure his torture any longer.”
“Obama had nothing to say for Sergeant Tahmooressi, who endured this unthinkable torture,” Voight said. “He made no attempt to free him. Not one word was said in his defense.”
The actor added that Obama’s view of what is right and wrong is “totally distorted.”
“There should be total outrage for his policies he will put into action,” Voight said. “He must be stopped. Every freedom loving American should voice their outrage against his executive privilege.”
