Yeah, you're right, the end of that statement really slammed the President!???
I detest the way the government has allowed our border to be overrun. I won't lay this on the present administration only, though.
Obama's budget proposal cuts border fence funds
WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama's budget blueprint Thursday canceled
plans to extend the border fence along the U.S.-Mexico border beyond the 670
miles already completed or planned, symbolically breaking with a
much-heralded approach to border security advocated by President George W.
The Obama administration's turnabout left limited funds for roads, lights
and so-called tactical infrastructure - but not a dime to extend the
pedestrian fencing and vehicle barriers erected along roughly one-third of
the nation's 1,947 mile border with Mexico.
As a Democratic senator representing Illinois, Obama joined 79 other
senators in 2006 to support construction of the barrier system.
The top financial officer at the Department of Homeland Security, Peggy
Sherry, and her team told reporters in a telephone conference call that the
Obama administration would not extend the barrier network that has irked
Mexico and stirred concerns among immigrant-advocate organizations. http://www.dallasnews.com/sharedcontent/dws/n...
DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano has testified before Congress, saying the
border is more secure now than it's ever been.
Car Jack used to Breach Border Fence
Drug smugglers use a simple car jack to lift the border fence in southern
Arizona and smuggle hundreds of pounds of illegal drugs into the United

Stand With Arizona
The Obama Administration today announced a virtual amnesty-by-decree for
hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens, whose deportations will be
"indefinitely delayed". In addition,
******Obama finally announced a jobs
program - but for ILLEGAL ALIENS, not citizens - as those 300,000 illegals
will also become eligible for "work permits".******
This action represents an administrative end-run around Congress, which
twice rejected the 'DREAM Act' in 2010. As disgraceful as is this usurpation
of Congressional authority, this announcement is even worse than is being
Our analysis reveals that - despite media focus of this action limited to
so-called "Dreamer" illegal students, this new policy, coupled with the
criteria established by the June 2011 "Morton Memos" which set up a joint
"DHS and DOJ working group" could expand this "indefinite delay" of
deportation to potentially MILLIONS of illegals - creating a new, massive
amnesty entirely by fiat, bypassing Congress.
