President Barack Obama is traveling to Texas next week
He won't visit the border to see any of the captured Central American children who are piling up in detention facilities, however
The White House says he doesn't need to make a pit stop at the border because he's 'well aware' of the situation
he will not visit detention facilities at the border housing thousands of illegal immigrant children, the White House said today.
Press Secretary John Earnest said the president is 'well aware' of the humanitarian crisis at the border and doesn't need to see it first-hand during his trip to the Lonestar State.
'The president has a very good sense of what's happening at the border,' Earnest said ...'He's getting regular updates from his officials who've traveled to that region. They're focused on solving this problem.'
'And what the president wants is ... regular reports about what they're seeing on the border, and how resources that are being devoted to processing these--those who have appeared at the border, are being used to effectively administrate justice.
Texas Governor Rick Perry invited the president to come visit the border in person during an appearance on Fox and Friends that morning.
'If he doesnt come to the border, I think its a real reflection of his lack of concern of whats really going on there,' Perry said.
'If the President of the United States is really serious about securing that border, we can show him how to do that,'
'But I havent even had a phone call from this president.'
On Wednesday Earnest said Obama still had no plans to visit the border but he 'wouldnt rule it out until the day of.'
'Our focus at this point is to plan to do something else,' he said.

OK Show of hands...
Who thought he would ???
Why not send his lovely “very popular” wife and daughters?
Golf and fund raising are more important than our borders being breached.
On Wednesday Earnest said Obama still had no plans to visit the border ...’Our focus at this point is to plan to do something else,’ he said.
Barry has priorities...
Texas has great golf courses...
What? He could heal the multitude with his very presence and yet he refuses?
Gollies yes !!!
MO could cook for the illegal aliens and plan their meals...
Self deportation anyone ???
“Our focus at this point is to plan to do something else”
Them divots ain’t gonna dig theyselves. Fore!
Meanwhile I’m sure the Obama princesses will arrange with Daddy for illegal alien girls to go to Sidwell Friends with them...
If he’s “well aware”, what TV program was that on? Doesn’t he get his news the “same way we do?”
Obama doesn’t want to get scabbies, lice, whooping cough, TB, measles, etc.
Those illnesses and diseases are reserved for us plebes.
Rick Perry knows how to play a narcissist like a fiddle. He said earlier in the week that it would really be bad form for Obama not to visit the border...guaranteeing that Obama wouldn’t do it.
It’s pretty clear he loves lice-infected immigrants in principle, but wants to keep his distance
Hitler never visited a concentration camp.
would you want to walk on the water of the Rio Grande ???
Its dirty...its full of dead illegal aliens and illegal alien pee...
imagine what that could do to the soles of Barry’s golf shoes
OH Come on now,
He has a DNC fund-raising schedule that takes priority over everything but golf games,
But don't suggest that this isn't tearing this up inside, inside he is weaping over this
Just like they were his own children. If he had hispanic children....
But remember Hitler didn’t have to ..
as Joseph Goebbels said at the time
‘He’s getting regular updates from his officials who’ve traveled to that region. They’re focused on solving this problem.’
‘And what Der Fuhrer wants is ... regular reports about what they’re seeing in the camps, and how resources that are being devoted to processing these—those who have been sent to the camps, are being used to effectthe final solution.”
