Senate Majority Harry Reid took the floor of the Senate this afternoon to praise President Obama for his executive action to block deportation for millions of illegal immigrants.
“This Thanksgiving was particularly unique and special because of President Obama’s recent executive actions, many immigrant families celebrated the holiday together for the first time without the threat of someone knocking on their door in a police uniform.”
Reid pointed out that many illegals were finally out of the shadows, thanks to Obama’s action.
“These people now, instead of staying in the shadows, are having a good time,” he said. “Their holiday is not threatened to be ruined.”
Reid lamented that the House failed to vote on the Senate bill, but pointed out that thanks to Obama, these people were finally given peace of mind.
“All over America they are openly giving thanks for the blessings of family that they haven’t been able to enjoy in the past,” Reid said. “Instead of looking over their shoulder, they joyously revel in the time they can spend with their loved ones.”
