Skip to comments.Obama mocks Republican position on immigration
Posted on 05/11/2011 7:26:30 AM PDT by markomalley
In search of Hispanic votes and a long-shot immigration overhaul, President Barack Obama on Tuesday stood at the U.S.-Mexico border for the first time since winning the White House and declared it more secure than ever. He mocked Republican lawmakers for blocking immigration over border security alone, saying they won't be happy until they get a moat with alligators along the border.
"They'll never be satisfied," he said.
Stymied by both chambers of Congress, the president ditched lawmakers in favor of voters who might pressure them, making an appeal to the public on a hot and dusty day far outside Washington. He told a friendly El Paso crowd that it's up to them to tell Congress to pass legislation providing a pathway to citizenship for 11 million illegal immigrants.
The approach also allowed the president to make clear that it's Republicans not him standing in the way of immigration legislation. As his re-election campaign approaches it's a message he wants broadcast loud and clear to Latino voters who don't like his administration's heavy deportations and feel he never made good on his promise to prioritize immigration legislation during his first year in office.
"I am asking you to add your voices to this," Obama said. "We need Washington to know that there is a movement for reform gathering strength from coast to coast. That's how we'll get this done."

Declaring borders secure does not make it so.

I’ll re-iterate what I said on a previous thread.
Hussein has accidentally swerved into a good idea.
Let’s send several thousand “surplus” Florida alligators to swim in the Rio Grande. The climate should be OK for them.
A natural “moat” with reptiles will have been achieved for Texas.
For the rest of the border region, I recommend that a national rattlesnake roundup be held and the “catch” be transported directly to the AZ border and any other similarly affected areas. Cali maybe.
Present Stroker is showing his “junior high school” proclivities again.
Then again, he did grow up without a man around to show him how to be one.

The border is still open.
The idea that the administration has actually fixed the border, that the US sothern border is secure, is a laughable joke.
This administration including Holder’s Justice Department is doing just the opposite and not enforcing tbe illegal immihration laws that are alewady on the books.
M O R O N!
“Stymied by both chambers of Congress....”
How racist of AP.
A few weeks ago he claimed Oil Production is up in the US under hos administration, he said just look it up
Illegal immigrants take hobs away from Americans and that includes UNION jobs!

“They’ll never be satisfied,” he said
ONLY when your ass is long gone, dipwad!
There you go, lying to the American people again.
1. Anyone with a brain knows the translation of “comprehensive immigration reform” is just one word beginning with the letter A.
2. Very few people mistake immigration, for illegal and undocumented border crossings.
3. Americans are the root cause of all your problems, not Republicans.
4. More racist division, from the poster child of racist division.
5. Alligators and moats. Sure thing Mr President.
6. “They’ll never be satisfied”, sounds more like the congressional democrat spending habits than any 10,000 Republicans on the subject of ILLEGAL and UNDOCUMENTED BORDER CROSSINGS.
7. I could go on but I’d be preaching to the choir. Not unlike what you were doing in El Paso, when maybe you should have been in Memphis.
Just to clarify, Obama is maocking the Republicans over “illegal” immigration. There’s a big difference between that and legal immigration.
This President is a joke. He talks about a path to citizenship. He says its time for the Republicans to get to work with the Democrats on reforming immigration. What he does not say is that the Democrats have the reform bill already written and plan on introducing only that bill, not allow any amendments from Republicans and when Republicans complain attack them for being partisan.

Obama has no interest in immigration. Ever the racist, he just wants the voters for his party and another permanent underclass it can exploit. We're only saved from this insanity because the two parties don't want to share "credit" for giving away citizenship to millions of new voters.
I'm sick to death of "we are a nation of immigrants" pablum. The debate isn't about lawful immigrants. It's about aliens. Immigrants use the front door. Aliens do not.
Nations the world over and throughout human history have had limited legal immigration policies to avoid losing their unique cultures, values and prosperity. Anything else is suicide.
