Obama Campaigns in Mexico: Immigration Reform Provides Citizenship for 11 Million ‘In This Country Illegally’

by Kyle Becker

President Obama let slip some uncharacteristic truth on his recent campaign trip visit to Mexico. Americans are supposed to trust this guy on immigration reform?

During his weekly address filmed in Mexico City, Obama gushed about the ‘bipartisan’ immigration bill and added matter-of-factly, “It would provide a pathway to earned citizenship for the 11 million individuals who are already in this country illegally.”

Actual enforcement of current law should precede all further political discussions of immigration reform. There are things that can be done to improve the immigration system, but allowing those who come to the country illegally open access to the welfare system and eventual participation in national elections is not one of them.
