Barack Obama is the best candidate for the Hispanic community because our community wants a united country. Obama is an immigrant. When he speaks to Latinos, he doesn’t just speak about immigration and civil rights...
Video to the right. I put this more in the "stupid things ethnic nationalist hacks say" category rather than the "shocking revelation that Obama isn't a citizen" category as others do. See some possible interpretations here.
WNET has an excerpt from the same or a different speech as well as an interview with a "reporter" here, but they don't include the "immigrant" part. In that interview, he predicts that Obama will win, and will do so by winning the Hispanic vote. The first part was right, the second wasn't. Their entry is dated August 29, so it might have been a different speech. He gave an outdoor speech on August 28 or before, with video from the Democratic National Convention itself here.
In the WNET clip, he promotes the "learn English" part of comprehensive immigration reform... in Spanish.
