Posted on 05/10/2011 5:35:12 PM PDT by massmike
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 whats needed to secure the border. Said the president: "Maybe theyll say we need a moat. Or alligators in the moat."

City’s sanctuary status mocked (Signs send illegals to Cambridge, MA)
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.
We’ll see who has the last laugh, poseur.
I can’t believe his racist cracker half is getting away with alligator bait jokes.
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.
Yo! Keep mocking the voters, Obama, you’re just making this easier and easier... (Now if we only had a candidate...)
STUPID IS as STUPID DOES! He’s sure on a ‘winning issue’ here. Keep it up As...Ho...!
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.
We have satisfied all the border concerns to date, a lying sac of #$%@#$. He setting up the illegal vote in 2012.
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.
“Maybe theyll say we need a moat. Or alligators in the moat.”
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!
Why in the hell doesn’t the MSM call out this pea-brained racist, little boy, POS that he is?
Did he call them vigilantes?
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.
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."
