Under President "constitutional law professor" Obama, nearly everything is a "right." According to Obama everyone has a right to healthcare, housing, a "living" wage, food, transportation, etc. What this really translates to is: government dependence on everything, but that's a whole other topic on its own.
Now as his illegal immigration and open borders base continues to pressure him to act on his own to bring amnesty to tens-of-millions of illegal immigrants, President Obama is touting
illegal immigration as a right. He said as much during a speech on Labor Day.
"Cynicism is a bad choice. Hope is the better choice. Hope is what gives us courage. Hope is what gave soldiers courage to storm a beach. Hope is what gives young people the strength to march for women’s rights, and worker’s rights, and civil rights, and voting rights, and gay rights, and immigration rights," Obama said (I'm not sure the men who stormed Normandy Beach did so on "hope" but whatever).

The reason the left refers to nearly everything they want as a "right" is so they can justify an entitlement to that right. Once people become entitled, or accept the idea of entitlement surrounding a certain issue, its game over.
Immigration to the United States is not a right and illegal immigration and breaking the law are certainly not things anyone is entitled to.
