I am so proud of my President!

“I’ve seen the heartbreak and anxiety of children whose mothers might be taken away from them just because they didn’t have the right papers,” the president continued. “I’ve seen the courage of students who, except for the circumstances of their birth, are as American as Malia or Sasha; students who bravely come out as undocumented in hopes they could make a difference in a country they love. These people – our neighbors, our classmates, our friends – they did not come here in search of a free ride or an easy life. They came to work, and study, and serve in our military, and above all, contribute to America’s success.”

I cannot express to you how this quote from President Obama in particular resonates with me. It is unbelievably disgusting that a country built on the backs of immigrants, supported by the dreams of immigrants, and populated almost completely by the descendants of immigrants should be so selfish and cold to those who actually make the “American dream” possible.
