Barack Obama: Ilegals can Vote in USA, Nobody Will Deport You

Num programa de televisão, o presidente Barack Obama foi confrontado com uma questão, colocada pela actriz porto-riquenha Gina Rodriguez:

“Many of the millennials, dreamers, undocumented, um, 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?”

A resposta do president, rápida e directa, foi chocante. Barack Obama garantiu que nenhum ilegal pode ser deportado por ter votado e explicou que, a partir do momento em que uma pessoa vota, para a ser um cidadão.

“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 rules somehow are transferred over and people start investigating et, cetera,” Obama responded. “The sanctity of the vote is strictly confidential in terms of who you voted for. If you have a family member who maybe is undocumented, then you have an even greater reason to vote.”
