I agree with Jeff Sessions
I am shocked that the President of the United States—who is the chief law enforcement officer for the nation and to whom all federal law enforcement officers report—failed to strongly and immediately object to a statement by an interviewer that unlawful immigrants can and should vote in U.S. elections. The interviewer proposed a radical and illegal action, which the President had a duty to condemn.
The President must immediately issue a statement to make crystal clear that only citizens of the United States have the right to vote, and that any noncitizen who votes, and anyone who assists noncitizens to vote, does so illegally and is subject to prosecution. The failure to clarify this statement will only add further credibility to the public’s concerns about the integrity of this election.

I’m not really sure what Obama is saying. It’s clear that the interviewer proposes a scenario where a non-citizen votes (despite her creative alternative definition of “citizen”), and Obama, instead of saying that it violates the law for a non-citizen to vote, he says “when you vote, you are a citizen yourself.” No Obama, the act of illegally voting does NOT make someone a citizen, it makes someone a criminal.
Obama’s obfuscation of this issue demonstrates his modus operandi of trying to legalize illegal aliens through executive action and non-enforcement of the laws.

What are the odds that there will be a push for illegal immigrant suffrage in the coming years? I feel like the elite opinion isn’t far from there.
If HRC wins the election, and gets to pack the Supreme Court with extreme liberals, it wouldn’t surprise me at all if the Court finds a “Constitutional right” for “undocumented Americans” to vote.
