Moments ago, Barack Obama was interrupted in the middle of a speech in San Francisco about immigration reform.
As the President addressed the crowd, a man standing behind him started yelling about deportations.
“I need your help,” the protester said. “My family’s been separated.”
The President turned around and said, “That’s exactly what we’re talking about. That’s why we’re here.”
“Please, use your executive order,” the protester pleaded, “to halt deportations from all 11.5 million undocumented immigrants in this country right now.”
“We agree that we need to pass comprehensive immigration reform,” the man continued, “but at the same time, you have a power to stop deportations for all.”
“Actually, I don’t,” the President responded. “And that’s why we’re here.”
