President Obama was heckled by a reporterduring his immigration remarks on Friday.
Obama announced that the Department of Homeland Security will stop deportations and grant work permits for students who meet certain requirements. The policy change will apply to those who arrived in the U.S. before turning 16, who have been in the country for at least five years, and are under the age of 30.
During his remarks, Obama suddenly addressed a person in the crowd, telling him that he was not yet taking questions. “Excuse me, sir, it’s not time for questions, sir,” Obama said. “Not while I’m speaking.”
At the end of his speech, Obama referred back to the person who interrupted him. “And the answer to your question is sir, and the next time I prefer you let me finish my statements before you ask that question, is this is the right thing to do for the American people…I didn’t ask for an argument. I’m answering your question,” he said, speaking over the man’s protests. “It is the right thing to do for the American people.”
The camera flashed to a man in a suit wearing sunglasses. He was quickly identified as The Daily Caller’s Neil Munro, who wrote about the news of Obama’s announcement on Friday.
