Barack Obama is in town. Maybe you've heard? He's here for a fundraising efforts, which, alas, aren't as lustrous and bountiful compared to years prior. Adding to his woes? The President was heckled by an immigration activist during a speech today while speaking to a crowd at the Betty Ann Ong Chinese Recreation Center.
The Washington Times has more:
Immigration-rights protesters interrupted President Obama’s speech Monday demanding he use executive powers to immediately halt all deportations, but he rebuked them, telling them he doesn’t have that power.
“You have a power to stop deportation,” one man, standing directly behind Mr. Obama, shouted near the end of the president’s immigration speech in San Francisco, who then began to lead chants of “Stop deportation!”
“Actually, I don’t, and that’s why we are here,” Mr. Obama replied.
When security moved to escort the protester out of the room, Mr. Obama told them to hold off.
