Obama ' s best immigration speech ever ?
"In the Mexican immigrant today, we see the Catholic immigrant of a century ago," said Obama, who spoke at a lectern positioned in front of the display of the Constitution.
"In the Syrian refugee of today, we should see the Jewish refugee of World War II."
Obama's remarks come as more than two dozen Republican governors have vowed to block Syrian refugees from coming into their states after terrorist attacks in Paris last month. Some members of Congress have also suggested that allowing more Syrian refugees to enter the United States could put the nation at risk for a future terrorist attack.
