Obama justifies student aid for illegals by citing ‘anti-immigrant sentiment’; it doesn’t go over well

Conservatives schooled President Obama after he used an Iowa school visit to slam Republicans as “un-American” because of an “anti-immigrant sentiment.”

As Obama took questions from high school juniors and seniors Monday in Des Moines, he saved a question about student aid for illegal aliens for last.

He used his answer to launch a tirade, calling illegal alien children “American kids by every other criteria except for a piece of paper.”

Implying that desire to live in America is all it takes to stay in the United States, the president said “it makes absolutely no sense” not to welcome all who come.

“This whole anti-immigrant sentiment that’s out there in our politics right now is contrary to who we are,” Obama said.  Apparently, to Obama, it seems keeping our borders secure from illegal aliens and potential terrorists makes one un-American.

The White House tweeted the president’s remarks.

Conservatives on Twitter took Obama to school on the difference between illegal immigration and “anti-immigrant sentiment.”

Republicans are not anti-immigrant, just pro-following the law.

Thankfully for some, the countdown to Obama’s permanent vacation from the White House is proceeding on schedule.
