In a speech given yesterday to Dreamworks employees, President Obama apparently revealed one of his new superpowers: he can identify the location of someone's birth just by looking at them.

I didn't ask, but just looking at faces I could tell there were some folks who are here not because they were born here, but because they want to be here. And they bring extraordinary talents to the United States and that's part of what makes America special.


Let's do a fun thought experiment where we imagine the media's reaction to a Republican saying they can "identify an immigrant" from just looking at someone. I feel like it wouldn't go over well.
