Today I attended a naturalization ceremony at the Daughters of the American Revolution Building in D.C.

Here is an excerpt from my speech there:

For some of you this has been a long hard journey to citizenship. (You made it just in time). I welcome you as a free citizen and a fellow American (The rest of your family will be another story). Now that you are citizens, you will walk in the footsteps of millions. (Millions of others will walk with escorts back to the south).

America's welcoming society is more than a cultural tradition. (it's an endangered tradition that is about to be abolished). Our Constitution does not limit citizenship by background or birth (Yet). America is stronger and more dynamic when we welcome new citizens to our democracy. (With that in mind, I've called on Congress to halt the distribution of green cards that can lead to citizenship).

Our nation is now in the midst of the debate on immigration policy, and it's good. At its core, immigration is a sign of a confident and successful nation. (At the White House it's an unwanted evil that we plan to eliminate) If your family members are still down south, you better sneak them in now, because we're gonna make it real hard to cross the border. If they get caught crossing over we will now put them into detention facilities.

It's a joyful day for all of you, and I hope you all look forward to the assimilation process. Adios to your culture, hello to your new U.S. culture.

May God bless you and your families (Those that made it over),
