He is making a joke of someone actually expecting him to do his job.
BeRight - Barry might "secure the border", if not securing the border wasn't going exactly according to his plans. How else can we logically explain his inaction to perform his sworn duty. Leaving our borders negligently unsecured, after taking a sworn oath to protect us from as much, is surely a very clear dereliction of duty and is SURELY legitimate grounds for Impeachment of the president.
If Barry would secure the border, that legislation you refer to would be a moot point since you have to cross the border illegally for the law to apply.
Please check out the following. this Border Patrol officer has some insight into why this is happening RIGHT NOW. Iraq's going to H-ell, the IRS has some answering to do, our veterans can't receive timely medical treatment, we traded a potential deserter for five high-value terrorist operators and our southern border has gone to s-h-I-t. In the midst of all of that, I saw our "Commander-in-Chief" shooting pool two days ago. h ttp://w ww.youtube.c om/watch?v=5ZhPr7wfGoo
Why didnt Barry send in the National Guard a month ago like Boehner and the REPUBLICANS requested !!!
I'm sorry...I thought you was the type that didn't want Obama to chuck away policies whenever he felt like it.
So it's ok for Obama to ignore any policies that Bush or Clinton passed if it suits the current administration.
Ken & Moder (sounds like a comedy dance team) - WHO'S in the WH right now and has been for the last six years? WHO'S Secretary of Homeland Security (from January 21, 2009 to September 6, 2013) said that "the border is more secure than it's ever been", 7 months before she resigned?
Maybe you two have a point. It's possibly Rutherford B. Hayes fault, but your not going to get anymore out of him than you are any of our 4 surviving ex-Presidents. Remember who the buck is supposed to stop with? Mr. "cool" Barack Obama. h ttp:// .dmldaily.c om/its-total-chaos-on-southern-border/
Kun- you do realize that the reason we are not turning these kids away was policy enacted during the last administration right?
kunec-I find it irresistible to ask you why you consider this situation to be of Barry's making?
moderation - So the inspired Obama reaction to a crisis of his making, is to pull ICE and DHS officials from middle America to help herd THESE CHILDREN on planes and buses to be deposited in communities around American that can neither afford or want them. Yeah, that sounds like a real humane solution to me. A fence and a strictly enforced policy of no admittance to the US without going through the proper procedures would surely be cheaper for America's taxpayers and end the human tidal wave of illegals. It just wouldn't permit the inundation of demand upon America's politico/economic system, which is what Mr. I'm Going To Transform America's ultimate goal. Get out your checkbook, your taxes will be going up because of this.
I know you are 'lurking' out there,somewhere lts.(; Log in and say,hey!
It would seem that dubya's legislation isn't being acknowledged by you, beright.And, just as a reminder, barry has significantly increased the numbers of border agents, as well as deportation numbers.The majority of these 'offenders' are mere children.Children!
I also put the problem squarely on the shoulders of the states along the border. Many of the states with illegal immigration problems seem to have a strong "state rights" viewpoint but yet cower when it comes to enforcing their own border.
I've known Texans who brag up (foolishly) that Texas could leave the country due to some clause in their constitution or whatever. So big ol Texas...if you were independent...what would your excuse would you have for illegals then?
"Drivers licenses and Benefits for all regardless"
I question the regardless part of that statement. Because unless we have border patrol people signing people up, shaking the people's hands and welcoming them...there are limits.
"My only answer is, the person that can order it (Obama), doesn't want to. Again, how do you explain it?"
Just something about being President I guess. Reagan, Bush, Clinton, Bush and now Obama...all failures when it comes to the immigration issue. Every one of them could have secured the border but chose not to.
You like to bundle,doncha beright?
The administration and Dems believe in the "legalization of illegals", IE Amnesty. Drivers licenses and Benefits for all regardless, funded by working taxpayers. I would say that changes the fabric.
We are a nation of immigrants. My family came from Europe. One big thing difference it that we had to make a stop at Ellis Island.
Kunec- when you speak of the fabric of America being changed forever,what is the fabric that is being changed?
Now that kind of project will require funding a bit greater than pocket change,kunec.How would that expense be offset?
Kendall - When you suggest that "the US can't deal with issues happening on our own continent", I find it irresistible to ask you why. Why can't the only remaining superpower on this planet (supposedly) live up to it's convictions, under it's own laws, and build as nearly impenetrable fence as possible on our southern border? My only answer is, the person that can order it (Obama), doesn't want to. Again, how do you explain it?
