|The president mocks that annoying conservative agitator for his change of heart on immigration.|
The president goes after the Latino vote by telling them to vote. He also mentioned his signature achievement the American Healthcare Act. He knocked the conservative news networks for driving up the "end of days" theme.
He also mentioned that annoying conservative agitator's change of heart in the immigration reform debate. Mediaite has the goods on what happened.
Speaking before the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute’s annual gala in Washington, D.C., President Obama warned that opponents of comprehensive immigration reform will soon “roll out the same old scare tactics.” In return, the president suggested, he and his supporters must work carefully to build a larger coalition that can successfully push legislation through Congress with help from both parties.
Though he suggested he could take executive action on immigration before his second term ends, Obama told the crowd that a written law would be more effective in the long run.
“If we want that legislation to happen sooner rather than later,” he said, “there’s one more thing I need you to do, and I've got to have you talk to your constituents and your communities and you've got to get them out to vote.”
After all, he continued, “You already know how powerful the Latino vote can be. In 2012, Latinos voted in record numbers. The next day, even [that annoying conservative agitator] changed his mind and decided immigration reform was a good idea.”
Obama was mockingly referring to annoying conservative agitator's switch from being opposed to the DREAM Act prior to the 2012 presidential election to supporting a “pathway to citizenship” for undocumented immigrants currently in the country.
The conservative agitator responds back to the president's mocking of him. The Blaze reports that the annoying agitator was not happy about being mentioned by the president.
“That’s not what I said,” that annoying agitator rebutted. “Interview after interview, I've said what I've said for years: secure the border first. And I said, this is being used as a weapon by the left and take it out of their hands by securing the borders, and then you deal with the 11 million people after. And no one has ever supported, ever, executive orders, which is what he’s planning.”
