(CNSNews.com) - Speaking from the Oval Office, President Barack Obama made a sales pitch today directly urging illegal aliens to sign up if they qualify for what he calls his “executive action” that will allow them to stay in the country despite violating the immigration laws.

“So I’m going to want all of you to get information so you can sign up if you qualify as well. All right?" said the president.

In the same talk, Obama referred to six young illegal aliens he met with in the White House today as “DREAMERS” and described them as individuals who came “here at the age of four months, or seven months, or 9-year-olds or 10-year-olds, oftentimes not realizing that their status was any different than their classmates and their friends and their neighbors.”

“And because of the executive actions that we took with respect to DREAM Act kids, and because of the executive actions that I announced late last year with respect to many of their parents, what I've heard is life is transformed,” said Obama.

Obama also said that he will veto any bill that stops his unilateral action on immigration. “And I am confident that I can uphold that veto,” he said.

At the end of his talk in the Oval Office, Obama called on additional “DREAMERS” and illegal aliens who qualify under his executive action to allow millions of illegal aliens to stay in the United States to “sign up” for it.

"And to all the DREAMers who are out there and all those who qualify for my executive action moving forward, I want you to know that I am confident in my ability to implement this program over the next two years, and I’m confident that the next president and the next Congress and the American people will ultimately recognize why this is the right thing to do,” said Obama. “So I’m going to want all of you to get information so you can sign up if you qualify as well. All right?"
