Obama mocks GOP on immigration

Barack Obama says his administration has answered the concerns of Republican lawmakers who want the U.S.-Mexico border better secured before they are willing to take on comprehensive immigration reform.

Standing at the border Tuesday, Obama mocked Republicans for never being satisfied and always changing the conditions about what’s needed to secure the border. Said the president: "Maybe they’ll say we need a moat. Or alligators in the moat."

City’s sanctuary status mocked (Signs send illegals to Cambridge, MA)

http://www.boston.com/news/local/massachusetts/articles/2006/07/05/citys_sanctuary_status_mocked/

When Cambridge recently renewed its status as a sanctuary city for all immigrants, including undocumented ones, the news barely caused a stir around here. But the move has made the city a target for an immigration control group based in Washington ,which is starting a national campaign urging undocumented immigrants to flood into the Massachusetts city. ProjectUSA is raising money to pay for a billboard in northern New Jersey that it hopes will be the first of many across the country.

The proposed billboard would read: “Attention: Illegal Aliens. Cambridge, Mass. is a sanctuary city. For help getting there,contact projectusa.org/NJ-mass transit.”

The ProjectUSA website also makes mock offers of support for the journey, providing bus schedules and fare information for trips from Newark to Boston. It gives contact details for Cambridge officials in case immigrants need rides from the bus station and help accessing city services. And it invites NJ residents and others who would like to be rid of undocumented immigrants to pitch in for their bus fares to Massachusetts.

..”I hope we have billboards from coast to coast directing people to Cambridge,” said Craig Nelsen , executive director of ProjectUSA.``Cities like Cambridge have made a very public display of their virtue so we’re going to give help to people to take advantage of it. We’re going to authenticate their virtue by having them exercise it.”

He joked that he would put the billboards,complete with maps, right on the Mexican border if he could.

The billboard campaign is another sign of how the debate over illegal immigration is increasingly being played out at the local level,in this case over sanctuary status of cities. With Congress deadlocked,cities and towns are increasingly taking on the issue themselves. Some,including Burlington, Vt.,Maywood,Calif., and San Antonio have moved to declare welcomes for undocumented immigrants.

What a great idea. Give the morally superior, sanctimonious elite what they are asking for.

Obummers internal polling must show his base in the toilet. Amnesty is a total loser issue. Just look what happened the last time it was brought up. I also see he didn't have the balls to do this event in AZ. That would have been fun.

One thing I would like to hear is mac daddy telling the truth about ANYTHING before I go to meet my heavenly farther.

Sad, but I don’t really believe that will happen though.

Mocking is right.

I was stunned when I heard him. What a cocky, arrogant punk. No class - none. I can’t even think of the words to describe him accurately.

I’m getting sick and tired of being referred to as “they”. He clearly has a deep hatred for anyone who didn’t vote for him.

0bama is wanting the Latinos to take to the streets and is spending our money trying to rile them up for a revolution.

He is, without question, the WORST pRESIDENT EVER. America cannot survive a second term of this phony Communist/Muslim.

I’m sure I’m not the first to say that we do need alligators in the moat, big hungry ones with a taste for Mexican food!

This guy is the most stupid man I have ever seen or heard speak.
He is down right rude. I don’t hear President Bush talk about BO. But Obama does it all the time to make his self look good.
What a jerk.

"Maybe they'll say we need a moat. Or alligators in the moat."

Already done -- (a post of mine from Jan. of '07).

"Build an alligator-filled moat along the entire border using water from both the Rio Grande and Colorado rivers."

That's a start at describing him.
