President Obama: Don't Scapegoat Immigrants

This passage from President Obama's acceptance speech at the Democratic convention stood out to me:
Obama

"We don't think the government can solve all of our problems, but we don't think the government is the source of all of our problems  — any more than our welfare recipients or corporations or unions or immigrants or gays or any other group we're told to blame for our troubles — because America, we understand that this democracy is ours."

Click here for the entire speech.

Of course, there is hypocrisy here, as Obama's ICE continues on its record-breaking detention and deportation efforts.
