This is just plain hilarious.
A petition posted at the White House website is urging President Obama to allow the fence-jumper who wreaked some havoc yesterday to stay in the White House since the President is allowing illegal immigrants to stay in the United States.
“We urge President Obama to immediately and publicly recognize that Mr. Omar J. Gonzalez, an oppressed migrant, was merely looking for a better life when he entered the White House after going over the classist, divisive and needless fence,” says the petition.
The petition continues: “In the interest of White House diversity and what will surely result in adding to the rich tapestry of love and community, we further demand that the President reform the mean-spirited laws regulating access to the People’s House.”
“For justice and peace, upon his next return from the back-nine, Mr. Obama must award permanent lawful WH residency to Mr. Gonzalez and his family, along with a permit to work there. Because.” concludes the petition.
As of this writing, the petition has almost 100,000 signatures. That’s significant because White House officials say that they will post a response to any petition that has 100,000 or more signatures.
The petition was posted just yesterday, so we’ll go out on a limb and assume that the White House will have no choice but to respond to this magnificent and very sensible petition.
