Obama Heckled: 'What About American Workers?'

June 15, 2012 - 1:33 PM

A correspondent from The Daily Caller took exception to Pres. Obama's immigration proclamation in the Rose Garden today.

“In the absence of any action” by Congress to address immigration reform, the administration is “taking steps to lift the shadow of deportation” by allowing young illegal aliens to stay and work in the U.S., Pres. Obama said today.

“Effective immediately, DHS is taking steps to lift the shadow of deportation,” Obama announced.

“Let’s be clear”: “This is not amnesty, this is not immunity, this is not a path to citizenship,” Obama said.

Obama’s speech was repeatedly interrupted by Neil Munro of The Daily Caller, who Obama verbally rebuked as he tried to continue.

As Obama finished, Munro got in one final shout:

“What about American workers who are unemployed while you import foreigners?”

Remember when Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SD) shouted "You lie!" during another Obama claim about immigration?

Wilson's "You lie" outburst came as Obama said that illegal immigrants would not be eligible for federal subsidies to purchase health insurance under his overhaul plan.
