What is the Obama definition of "native"?

Obama:  "If you look at the history of immigration in this country, each successive wave there have been periods where the folks who were already here have said, 'Well I don't want those folks,'" he said. "Even though the only people who have the right to say that are some Native Americans."

What is the Obama definition of "native"?

Presumably pre-1492.

Therefore according to the Obama assessment the people in the United Kingdom descended from the pre-1492 population (in other words most of us) have a right to say we don't want immigrants.
