But did he deserve the blame for the immigration mess that started far before he got into office? No! Why is it that so many of you Bush bashers need to blame him for most of the immigration problems? I’m remembering him saying that he wanted to maybe grant amnesty on a case-by-case basis, not a “blanket amnesty” like so many on here accuse him of; and that only for those who have family wanting to join them. He also put many, many more National Guard forces on the borders than Obama and Clinton did, and yes, they were building walls and fences where they could!
Now I know I read that, so don’t tell me it didn’t happen and I’m imagining it all! I’m sure I read that, and as recently as about a year or two ago. It was when Obama was said to have put some National Guard forces on a few areas on the border, and it was by someone on “Free Republic”, I believe.
They all deserve blame. Ted Kennedy most of all, for changing the face of immigration; Reagan and Bush I for failing to enforce the border security provisions of the first Amnesty, Clinton for doing nothing, Bush II for reasons previously stated, and Obama.
