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.
