White House now faults Republicans for weak border security
The Washington Times ^ | June 24, 2014 | By Ben Wolfgang

After previously saying America’s 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.

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.

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.

Can’t blackmail the willing. The GOP is a pressure relief valve for liberal incrementalism. Nothing more. The river always flows leftward.

It's the Republican's fault! /s

Illegal immigrant children forced to CUT OFF fingers and ears of other kids by 'coyote' gangs, claims Ted Cruz

"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.

Get on board, Josh? Like the *chilrens* riding in from Mexico and Central America?

The White House is saying that they will continue to refuse to enforce immigration laws, until the Republicans pass several new immigration laws, which they will immediately begin ignoring and not enforcing!

FUBO!

Obama that is almost as funny on what is causing the Iraqi civil war according to Al Gore, which is Global warming.

In 2017 you and Gore should do a comedy tour, Obama. It might be good for America...unless you want to start the tour now. We wouldn't mind...

Don’t hold your breath waiting for that to happen. Perhaps someone could ship some spines to the GOP members.

The Queer-In-Charge don’t like the one thing that would be the greatest tool for border security:

An M-1 Garand rifle, with bayonet fixed!

To be fair, the Republican party does share the blame -- at least insofar as the national-/federal-level is concerned.
