President Obama's Labor Day address included a reference to "immigration rights." Specifically, the president stated:
"Cynicism is a bad choice. Hope is the better choice. Hope is what gives us courage. Hope is what gave soldiers courage to storm a beach. Hope is what gives young people the strength to march for women’s rights, and worker’s rights, and civil rights, and voting rights, and gay rights, and immigration rights."
Time magazine reports that this is the first time the president has used "immigration rights" outside the context of "immigration-rights activists."
