    That has long been debunked. No need to keep on with that particular lie.

    Bull****. Plain and simple. Ike did. So did Kennedy and Johnson and even Nixon.

    But that isn't what the LA Times article said. It said specifically that the deportations for apprehensions within 100 miles of the border were not counted under previous presidents but are being counted under Obama. The only apples to apples statistics we have are deportations in the "interior" (100 miles and further from the border), the statistic kept for all years prior to Obama's administration, and those numbers have been half as much as previous years.

    It was a monumentally stupid choice on Obama's part as the executive order had nothing in it to deal with the flood illegals it created.

    It's like if Obama passed an executive order that he was going to pardon anyone who shoplifted from Walmart and then plead ignorance when Walmarts turn into a mob scene.
    J!? You haven't seen me defend Obama's border policies. What you've seen is me pointing out that no president, congress or party has taken border security where it needs to be, some better, some worse. Border security is counter productive to big business, and both parties pander to big business. Much as you want to make decades of border woes, amnesty, lax penalties on employers who hire the illegals, etc., all Obama's fault.

    Oh I see, that sucks. Reminds me of the time Bush, with a mouthful of bread hollered, "yo Blair, come her". And a prominent London paper the following day ran the headline, "yo Bush, he's our prime minister, respect him".

    That isn't true with Obama. His photo ops are all carefully orchestrated with hand picked photographers. He doesn't let the press run the photo ops.

    Whether its true or not, Obama maintains that his physical presence on the border would not improve the situation. Also, the press pages are full of photos of Obama meeting with legislators and businessmen as well. But, like the left did to Bush all the time, you've picked a photo of Obama shooting pool to "prove" that he's disinterested in the border problem. And finally, NO president has taken the border problem serious, and as long as policy is driven by big money, none will.
    If other presidents had passed executive orders granting blanket amnesty to illegal children that led to a flood of illegal children across the border then I would expect him to be taking it more seriously. This crisis is of the president's own making.

    How can the president control the gang violence in El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala that is pushing refugees toward us?

    His state's borders are overrun by tens of thousands of illegal aliens who have to be packed into pens for lack of ability to deport them which is leading to outbreaks of disease. He should be laughing?

    So that is the new excuse? That region has been the tops of the violent crime stats for years. This flood of illegals is primarily children who are coming here to get amnesty under Obama's "Dream" executive order, not gang violence.
