In a recent "interview" with Hollywood actress Gina Rodriguez, who refers to illegal immigrants as "undocumented citizens," President Barack Obama unleashed perhaps the most jaw-dropping statement of the 2016 presidential election cycle.
Rodriguez initiated the moment by asking:
Many of the millennials, Dreamers, undocumented citizens—and I call them citizens because they contribute to this country—are fearful of voting. So if I vote, will immigration know where I live? Will they come for my family and deport us?
The president responded by saying:
This is not true. And the reason is—first of all, when you vote, you are a citizen yourself, and there is not a situation where the voting rolls somehow are transferred over and people start investigating, et cetera. The sanctity of the vote is strictly confidential in terms of who you voted for.
In other words, if you're not a citizen of the U.S., go ahead and vote. No one will try to verify that your vote was cast legally.
Coupled with the reports of an election-fueled "surge" of illegal immigrants crossing the southern border with Mexico, these statements are particularly audacious. And, it further adds to Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's assertion the election has been rigged by Democrats.
