Obama Flashback: Halting Deportations Beyond DREAMers 'Not an Option'

President Obama said that stopping deportation for individuals covered under the DREAM Act would be “ignoring the law,” difficult to defend legally,” and “not an option” in a clip from a September 2013 interview broadcast on Monday’s “Jose Diaz-Balart” on MSNBC.

When Obama was asked about halting deportations for non-DREAMers back in September 2013 by Diaz-Balart, he said, “if we start broadening that, then essentially I would be ignoring the law in a way that I think would be very difficult to defend legally. So that’s not an option.”
