If we get immigration reform across the finish line, and it is there just within our grasp, but if we can just get folks in Washington to go ahead and do what needs to be done, we’re going to grow our economy, we’re going to make our country more secure, we’ll strengthen our families, and most importantly, we will live…
[Barack Obama:] Most importantly, we will live up…
My family has been separated for 19 months now…
[Barack Obama:] Most importantly, we will live up to our character as a nation.
I’ve not seen my family. Our families are separated. I need your help. There are thousands of people…
[Barack Obama:] That’s – that’s – that’s exactly what we’re talking about.
…are torn apart every single day.
[Barack Obama:] That’s why we’re here.
Mr. President, please use your executive order to halt deportations for all 11.5 undocumented immigrants in this country right now.
[Barack Obama:] Source: L Y B I O . N E T
What we’re trying…
Do you agree…
Obama! Obama! Obama!
…that we need to pass comprehensive immigration reform at the same time. We – you have a power to stop deportation for all undocumented immigrants in this country.
[Barack Obama:] Actually I don’t. And that’s why we’re here.
So, please, I need your help.
[Barack Obama:] Okay.
Stop deportations! Stop deportations!
[Barack Obama:] Thank you. All right.
Stop deportations! Stop deportations!
[Barack Obama:] What I’d like to do – no, no, don’t worry about it, guys. Okay, let me finish. Let me – let me –
Stop deportations! Yes, we can! Stop deportations!
[Barack Obama:] These guys don’t need to go. Let me finish. No, no, no, he can stay there. Let me – let me – hold on a second. [applause] Hold on a second. So I respect the passion of these young people because they feel deeply about the concerns for their families. Now, what you need to know, when I’m speaking as President of the United States and I come to this community, is that if, in fact, I could solve all these problems without passing laws in Congress, then I would do so.
But we’re also a nation of laws. That’s part of our tradition. And so the easy way out is to try to yell and pretend like I can do something by violating our laws. And what I’m proposing is the harder path, which is to use our democratic processes to achieve the same goal that you want to achieve. But it won’t be as easy as just shouting. It requires us lobbying and getting it done. [applause]
So they uh… so… so for those of you who are committed to getting this done, I am going to march with you and fight with you every step of the way to make sure that we are welcoming every striving, hardworking immigrant who sees America the same way we do, as a country, where no matter who you are or what you look like or where you come from, you can make it if you try. And if you’re serious about making that happen, then I’m ready to work with you.
But it is going to require work. It is not simply a matter of us just saying we’re going to violate the law. That’s not our tradition. The great thing about this country is we have this wonderful process of democracy, and sometimes it is messy, and sometimes it is hard, but ultimately, justice and truth win out. That’s always been the case in this country; that’s going to continue to be the case today.
