In a slip of the tongue, White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Thursday that President Obama will naturalize “illegal” immigrants in a ceremony on Independence Day.

Mr. Earnest was discussing the naturalization ceremony scheduled for Friday when he told reporters that Mr. Obama believes it is appropriate for the commander-in-chief “to naturalize those individuals who are in this country illegally — uh legally — who signed up to join the military to defend this country.”

“That is a pretty strong testament to the values that are held by those immigrants,” he said. “I can tell you that the president is genuinely looking forward to it.”
