President Obama was interrupted by hecklers during his speech in Las Vegas on Friday, as he tried to explain why he chose to act on his own to offer amnesty to illegal immigrants. “All are not qualified!” yelled one protester while supporters of the president chanted “Si Se Puede” and shouted “Viva!” and “We love you!”
As the protester continued, Obama replied, “That’s right, not everyone will qualify under this provision. That’s the truth, that’s why we’re still going to have to pass a bill.”
Obama added that his executive actions was only a “first step.”
As the protester continued shouting, Obama said “I’ve heard you … Young man I’m talking to a lot of people here, I’ve been respectful to you, I want you to be respectful to me.”
At another point in his speech on person shouted “Thank you!” to the president.
“You’re welcome,” he replied as the crowd cheered.
