I see that Edward Snowden, the NSA secrets' leaker, is making a plea to the U.S. government for clemency. I guess he now wants to come home.

In The Associated Press story “Leaders balk at Snowden's clemency plea” (Nov. 4 and, White House adviser Dan Pfeiffer stated that “Mr. Snowden violated U.S. law” and “should return to the U.S. and face justice.”

Isn't this the same administration that wants to give citizenship to almost 12 million illegal aliens living here in the U.S.? Haven't they violated “U.S. law”? Why do these illegals get to stay?

Oh, that's right — Mr. Snowden has only one vote to give, not 12 million! Something to think about.
