WASHINGTON -- By most, if not all, measures, President Barack Obama has surpassed his predecessors in ramping up security along the nearly 2,000-mile southern border of the United States. There’s more money being spent, an increase in border agents and more fencing. The number of people being deported is up and the number of people apprehended trying to enter the United States is down. The flow of illegal immigrants from Mexico has slowed. Yet if Obama thought that tough action on the border would help persuade reluctant Republicans to support a rewrite of the nation’s immigration laws, he was wrong. Some dispute Obama’s measurements, saying the government does not know the number of people that sneak across the border undetected. And while even most of Obama’s fiercest critics acknowledge that more is being done than ever before, they say it’s still not enough.

“Our borders now are more secure than they have ever been in history,” White House spokesman Jay Carney repeatedly says.

What fencing ??? More illegals are falling under catch and release.The flow has slowed,really hundres showing up daily. Illegals are being coached claiming a credible fear of the drug cartels in Mexico allowed to stay in the U.S.

Spending more money and hiring more government workers is not the same thing as enforcing the law.

As if the GOP needs convincing.

They are with him, not us.

Comrades, Good News! Under Dear Leader’s inspired guidance, industrial production is up. Agricultural production is up. Border incursions are at an all time low. Juche proves, once again, to be the salvation of the people.

Oh, sure. And we are in a recovery, and there is no inflation, and our currency is not worthless, and there is gold in Fort Knox, and "alternative" energy will save us all, and Obama is both a Natural Born Citizen and a Christian, and pigs fly!

Gee, I'm so glad Obama has made everything better...for Obama!!

How do they know that the flow of illegal immigrants from Mexico has slowed? You cannot count them if you don’t see them. They are coming across in undiscovered tunnels. The Mexican mafias have bribe U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents to allow in cars with people stuffed into the trunks. Who is counting them? Nobody that’s who.

THE FOREIGNER cracking down on border security amounts to nothing more than elimination of 10% of the buses he used to HAUL THEM IN.
