In a speech given in the rose garden, President Obama stood defiantly in front of the American people stating that he is only doing his job because Republicans won’t do theirs. Using the excuse of a “humanitarian crisis on our southern border,” Obama arrogantly and falsely accuses Republicans of non-action regarding immigration reform. I believe that accusing Republicans regarding this is a clear example of “the pot calling the kettle black.” Not only is it a false narrative, but one of his own creation. If the southern border was secure in the first place, this “crisis” would never have happened to begin with. But our president likes to play games like this, blaming someone else for the problems he has either created himself, or ones that he has completely ignored since he took office in 2008.
“Our country and our economy would be stronger today if House Republicans had allowed a simple yes-or-no vote on this bill or, for that matter, any bill,” Obama said in the Rose Garden. “They’d be following the will of the majority of the American people, who support reform. And instead, they’ve proven again and again that they’re unwilling to stand up to the Tea Party in order to do what’s best for the country.”
Sorry, Mr. President, but your idea of “immigration reform” differs completely with that of the majority of Americans. We want a secure border first and then and only then, can we iron-out the details afterwards. The one thing we don’t want right now is to add an additional 30 to 40 million more people to an already dismal economy, that doesn’t show any signs of recovery in the near future thanks to the failure of your domestic & economic policies. No matter how you crunch the numbers, taking on more people would sink an already overloaded ship!
In other words, we can barely feed and take care of real American citizens within our borders, without having to worry about people who come here illegally!
Even as he blamed House Republicans for frustrating him on immigration, Obama asked Congress for more money and additional authority to deal with the “unexpected crisis” (“unexpected“…that’s a hot one !) of a surge of unaccompanied Central American youths arriving by the thousands at the Mexico-US border. Obama wants “*flexibility” (* that means more money that will mysteriously disappear into Democrat coffers) to speed the youths’ deportations and $2 billion in new money to hire more immigration judges and open more detention facilities. What about the almost 70,000 illegal alien criminals that he released back onto our streets not that long ago?
Can you believe the nerve of this guy?
Who is he kidding? Hey pal, can’t you get it through that huge melon of yours that we’re broke? We can’t afford to spend any money on “humanitarian relief” if the border continues to stay open, because just as soon as you finish spending that two billion to “fix” this situation, another hundred thousand will be here and another hundred thousand after that. Giving him $2 billion right now, just before an election would be stupid!
Why is the Border Patrol allowing these busloads of kids to cross our border in the first place…unless that was his plan all along? What’s the point of even having a “border” if you let anyone and everyone just walk across it? And why is Mexico allowing these busloads of children to cross their border and travel the entire length of their country to begin with? Something here stinks and it’s not my dirty socks!
Never let a good crisis go to waste….even if you have to create one to begin with – Right Mr. President?
