If Barack Obama wants public officials to stop demagoguery of the immigration issue, he should set an example and stop doing it himself.
On CBS News, he accused enforcement advocates of taking “anti-immigrant” positions:
“I understand the frustration of people in Arizona,” Mr. Obama said. “But what we can’t do is demagogue the issue, and what we can’t do is allow a patchwork of 50 different states, or cities or localities, where anybody who wants to make a name for themselves suddenly says, ‘I’m going to be anti-immigrant, and I’m going try to see if I can solve the problem ourself.’ This is a national problem.”
Mr. President, meet Miss California, the daughter of legal immigrants who looks beyond SB1070 and gets to the heart of the battle against open borders:
Newly crowned Miss California Arianna Afsar is not in the same competition as Carrie Prejean, but she may turn out to be just as controversial.
The 18-year old from San Diego is staunchly anti-amnesty for undocumented immigrants.
“I think that people who want to be a United States citizen need to come over here legally in order to get the privileges that every American receives,” said the college student, during a webcam interview with NBC.
Afsar’s own father is an immigrant from Bangladesh, who helped bring three relatives to the U.S legally.
“It ended up taking him 10 years, but he did it legally,” said Afsar. “I don’t think that if you are close to the border that you have the right to be given the rights of a United States citizen.”
Afsar believes all immigrants should follow the same legal process as her father.
