Poor obama. He’s done everything possible to placate those silly Republicans regarding border security and immigration reform, all for nothing…. because they’ll never be satisfied!
In El Paso fundraising and pushing the DREAM act, obama spoke about all the things he’d done to placate the other side and how important immigrants are in our history.
[quote]In his speech, Obama noted that Intel, Google, Yahoo and eBay were all founded by an immigrant.[/quote]
Not surprising, since excepting the indigenous peoples, we ARE ALL IMMIGRANTS.
He also showed his customary snark.
[quote]“Maybe they’ll need a moat,” Obama said mockingly to laughter from the crowd. “Maybe they’ll want alligators in the moat.”[/quote]
That would be nice.
Obama also said that the border fence is ‘basically complete’.
But Republicans said Obama wasn’t telling the whole story about border security. Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, said Mexican cartels have increased their presence inside the U.S., the data on spillover crime and violence is “underreported” and that between 70 and 90 percent of Texas’ 1,200-mile border with Mexico is still not under operational control.
Want us to help you out with the DREAM act? Bet many on the right side of the aisle would swap it out for obamacare in a heartbeat…
