President Obama Interrupted During Speech, and Makes the Heckler Subject of His Point About Immigration [VIDEO]
During a speech on immigration in San Francisco, President Obama had to stop his speech for a minute and deal with a heckler. The heckler 24-year-old Ju Hong, who according to Yahoo News, ‘has a history of civil disobedience,’ spoke out ‘because his family has been torn apart by U.S. immigration policy, and the administration has done nothing to help them,’ Yahoo News also said. Please believe the president handled him accordingly.
Hong interrupted the POTUS by saying,
“You have a power to stop deportation for all undocumented immigrants in this country,” Hong shouted.
“Actually, I Don’t.” Obama responded.
Security guards proceeded to remove the man, but President Obama directed them not to,
“These guys don’t need to go,” he said. “Let me finish.”
“Now, what you need to know, when I’m speaking as president of the United States, and I come to this community, is that, in fact, if I could solve all these problems without passing laws in Congress, then I would do so,” Obama said in response. “But we’re also a nation of laws. That’s part of our tradition. And so the easy way out is to try to yell and pretend like I can do something by violating our laws.”
