President Obama, in a shocking interview replayed on Fox News by host Neal Cavuto, actually seemed to suggest that illegals should vote – that if they did, they wouldn’t be caught and deported.
The story unfolds with a woman asking Obama: “Many of the millennials, Dreamers, undocumented citizens – and I call them citizens because they contribute to this country – are fearul of voting. So if I vote, will immigration know where I live? Will they come for my family and deport us?”
And Obama’s response: Not to worry – not at all.
“Not true,” Obama said. “The reason is when you vote, you are a citizen yourself and there is not a situation where the voting rolls are somehow transferred over and people start investigating et cetera. The sanctity to vote is strictly confidential.”
Holy cow. Did Obama just encourage illegals to get in the voting game?
This, from a tweet from @HankRearden, alongside a photo of the woman who asked the bold question: “Disgraceful. Obama encourages illegals to vote on live TV. Now we know what Democrat opposition to voter ID was about. #Never Hillary.”
A woman interviewing President Obama asks if illegals would be deported if they vote. And Obama’s response? No, he said.
Meanwhile, a jaw-dropped Cavuto said he couldn’t believe what he heard the president say.
Cavuto’s response, on Fox News: “I can’t believe I heard what I heard. The president’s even questioning whether the person who is an illegal is voting … that if you’re a citizen you vote, but it’s very clear that the question that was being asked was about illegals voting and afraid that they might be deported to border security. You’re illegal. You cannot vote. And the president of the United States is saying, ‘don’t worry. No one will be spying on you, catching you … you are ignoring the fact that the question about illegal voting, which you can’t do, why? Because you’re not a citizen of this country.”
