During an interview last week with a Latina celebrity, President Barack Obama seemingly encouraged illegal immigrants to try and vote during the Nov. 8 general election.
“I call [illegal aliens] citizens, as they contribute to this country,” said the interviewer, actress Gina Rodriguez. “They are fearful of voting and wonder, ‘If I vote, will Immigration know where I live? Will they come for my family and deport us?’”
What Obama said in reply to Rodriguez’s enquiry was beyond the pale, to say the least:
Not true. First of all, when you vote, you are a citizen yourself, and there is not a situation where the voting rolls are transferred over and people start investigating, etc. The sanctity of the vote is strictly confidential in terms of who you voted for.
If you have a family member who maybe is undocumented, you have an even greater reason to vote … The reason fear is promoted is because they don’t want people voting. People are discouraged from voting.
The full interview, with Obama’s answer in context (no, it doesn’t help him), can be watched here.
The fact that the president did not immediately object to illegal voting and instead tried to reassure Rodriguez that the likelihood of an investigation was non-existent is extremely troubling, so much so that Fox Business News Neil Cavuto was absolutely stunned.
“I can’t believe that I heard what I heard!” he exclaimed Saturday. “It was very clear that the question that was being asked was about illegals voting and them being afraid they might be reported to Border Security.”
You’re ignoring the fact that you are being questioned about illegal voting, which you can’t do. Why? Because you’re not a citizen of this country! You’re illegal! You cannot vote. The President of the United States is saying no one will be spying on you, catching you.

If Obama wants to know why GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump is performing so well in the polls, despite his lengthy history of misstatements and faux pas, he need only take a close look in the mirror.
The president’s own lawlessness and disrespect for America have in themselves spurred millions of us, including your truly, to vote for Trump — because the last thing want is for the corruption to continue for another 4 or 8 years via Hillary Rodham Clinton.
