Al Sharpton Praises Obama: Executive Amnesty Opening ‘America Up for Everyone’

SIGN UP FOR OUR NEWSLETTER

Hours before Barack Obama makes his executive amnesty announcement on Thursday, Al Sharpton praised the President for starting to “undo those locks” and opening “America up for everyone.” 

Sharpton, speaking at the National Press Club with social justice activists, declared that Obama’s executive amnesty was not “a segregated victory” for “one group” but a victory for “all groups.” He rejoiced that Obama’s executive amnesty would “relieve a lot of disadvantaged people who are disadvantaged because they were locked out.”

“Now we’re beginning to undo those locks and open America up for everyone,” Sharpton said. “This is a great day.” 

Sharpton said that social justice activists have “marched and lobbied and petitioned” for executive amnesty and, despite polling that has found that a plurality of Americans do not want Obama to act alone on immigration, he said that “the president has heard the cry of the American people.” Sharpton said Obama’s executive amnesty will go down as “historic.”
