After previously saying Americas borders are more secure than ever, the White House on Tuesday seemingly blamed Republicans for apparent holes along the southern boundary, evidenced by the flood of unaccompanied children streaming into the U.S. from Mexico, Central America and elsewhere.
White House press secretary Josh Earnest challenged Republicans, if they are truly concerned about border security, to back the comprehensive immigration reform package.
If we really wanted to solve this problem, one good way to do it is for those Republicans to get on board
and support common sense immigration reform, Mr. Earnest told reporters.

Says the red diaper doper baby who prohibits Republican governors from enforcing their own border security.
This has always only been about trying to blackmail the GOPe into supporting amnesty.
Wow! More “unexpected” BS from the Hussein regime. Blame it on the GOP! They don’t mind! ROTFL!
The new narrative that is surfacing is that the Democrats are blaming the Republicans for forcing the Budget sequestration on us ..... that is what has weakened Border Security.
I just said to someone last night that the Dems are frantically looking for a way to blame Republicans for this.
The GOP should fire back in press conference that there has been an immigration reform package on the table for 5 years but Harry Reid has refused to bring it to the floor.
Blame it on the Senate Democrats and go hard at it.
Will help Republicans in November.
Hey Josh! Dude! Your “common sense immigration reform” will only make the problem one hundred times worse than it is now! Moron!
Democrats have been busted setting aside federal money for just this circumstance (a huge influx of central american children without parents) in advance of the influx.
That money could’ve been used at the border if the goal was to PREVENT them from coming here.
>> “support common sense immigration reform”
Support common sense national security.
Impeach the liar!!
Doesn’t pass the laugh test.
Can’t blackmail the willing. The GOP is a pressure relief valve for liberal incrementalism. Nothing more. The river always flows leftward.
Obama, and the Clintons before him have turned deceit into a science. An art too.
sounds like there are NO Laws in place now to secure the border ,D’oh
"Human traffickers are forcing illegal immigrant children to cut off the ears and fingers of other kids traveling into the U.S. in order to extort money from their families, a Texas senator claimed on Monday."
'These children are being subjected to physical abuse, to sexual abuse. Some of them are losing their lives.'
Obama’s is a completely lawless, irresponsible administration. After six years, nothing is ever his fault.
What party stopped funding of the fence on the border?
Who gave orders not to stop the illegals?
