Immigration Hits Home for Young Girl and First Lady Michelle Obama
abcnews.com ^ | May 19, 2010 | Karen Travers

Posted on 05/19/2010 11:26:31 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

ABC News' Karen Travers reports: During First Lady Michelle Obama's visit to an elementary school in Silver Spring, Md., Wednesday, a second grade female student brought up immigration reform in a very personal way.

The student shyly raised her hand and said, "My mom ... she says that Barack Obama is taking everybody away that doesn't have papers."

Mrs. Obama replied:"Yeah, well that's something that we have to work on, right? To make sure that people can be here with the right kind of papers, right? That's exactly right."

The girl then said quietly, "But my mom doesn't have any ..." and trailed off.

Mrs. Obama replied: "Well, we have to work on that. We have to fix that, and everybody's got to work together in Congress to make sure that happens. That's right."

The Wookie didn't explain to the young girl that her mother was breaking the law?

Yet another 0bama politically planted question.
Hey little girl, your mommy can always take you back to her own country Mexico. Plenty of schools there too. Simple really.

Are you telling me that the FLOTUS knew of a US law being broken and didn’t report it? Isn’t that illegal in itself?

“The girl then said quietly, “But my mom doesn’t have any ...” and trailed off”.

...then your Mommy is breaking the law. What’s next? “But my mom doesn’t have any money”? “But my mom needs free medical care”? “But my mom needs a new ipod”? “But my mom, but my mom, but my mom...”!

Sorry sweetie your Mom broke the law. Tell her to go back and do it the right way. Everyone will be happy then.

And screw the first lady for using children to advocate & push their liberal/communist agenda.

She screwed up here lines, but I have no doubt that they were fed to her.

Same thing with the little girl and her health care question around a year ago.

“Isn’t that illegal in itself?”

Apparently NOT! If it was, all the “sanctuary city” councils (i.e., Houston, Austin, Los Angeles, San Fransicko, etc...) would have been arrested a LONG time ago! These places are INSTITUTIONALIZING illegal alien activity in their cities!

In the meantime..my grandchild may be born outside the US while we wait for legal immigration of my daughter in law.
We also probably paid the maternity costs of this little girl who anchored her mother to the US.
And the parents of the kid next to her probably struggled to pay for their maternity costs..while subsidizing her mother.
Their are many victims of illegal immigration..but they are the regular citizens of the US.

“Uh, I don’t think they’d encourage the girl to say that ‘Barack Obama is taking everybody away that doesn’t have papers.’”

Sure they would, you see, ALL the world look up to Obama, and since these mean, ugly laws like in Arizona are being written, he is taking everybody away. See, the crazy right-wingers are scaring the little children into thinking Obama is a bad man, but we are going to fix that, blah, blah, blah!

I just threw up in my mouth thinking about the way these idiots use people! It is sickening and GROSS!

What an uncanny coincidence. AZ just passes a law. Calderon's in town. Michelle Obama’s husband is in a political party about to be slaughtered in the November elections. Large numbers of Hispanics vote democrat. Most Illegals will be democrats if given amnesty. How strange that Michelle would just happen to go to a school where a little child happens to attend that is the daughter of an illegal, and the child just happens to mention it. How fortunate for El presidente Obama. How fortunate.

Taxpayer money is funding the education of children of illegal aliens.

Michelle Obama is promising amnesty for her parents to fix it.

None of the real words will be used, s oKabuki Dance theatre is done instead.

It is because of people like your daughter in law that illegal immigration really angers me. Your daughter in law has to wait and stay away from family, but someone else just sneaks in and we’re not supposed to care? H
Here’s hoping things work out for your family.

You OBVIOUSLY are NOT a leftist, Democrat! If it is too high, she needs to stay so that we Americans can be forced to pay to help her get in better shape! Gee Wiz, don’t you know that there are no fat kids in Mexico, because they can’t afford it!

You are heartless SOB! /s

I have to wonder why a child would come out & say her mother had no papers. Seems to me that the child would have had it drilled into her from a very young age not to ever say anything about being illegal. Something just seems odd about this IMO. (I doubt you would make children cry either lol)

She may have been thinking of the on coming National ID card.

Other than that...if they’re illegal...and TubButt is an officer of the court and failed to comply with law, I’d say that should dis-bar her from her little Harvard law degree.
