    Sorry. I was raised in San Diego and lived there during all those administrations, the border has always been porous, with only band-aid border patrol coverage.

Much as you want to make decades of border woes, amnesty, lax penalties on employers who hire the illegals, etc., all Obama's fault.
    I am making the effects of Obama's executive orders Obama's fault. The reason the border is at a crisis point is because the numbers have dramatically increased and the population flooding across the border are primarily unattended minors who can't be left to their own devices even if we wanted to.

    Yes, the border has always been porous, all the more reason why you don't issue an executive order that entices children to cross the border illegally.

    This is a crisis Obama has created.

    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.
    There's plenty of Obama photographs taken by the press that he isn't orchestrating, as example, the one above that you all seem to be poking fun of, wouldn't have been a "photo-op". Anytime a president declares amnesty to illegal immigrants, its injurious to America. Obama isn't the first, that's not a defense of what Obama has done and is doing. I'm pissed about it too. The difference, I've been pissed about the numbers of illegals that have been allowed to come here and in at least one case, given amnesty, for decades now, not just when it's a democratic president that fails to secure our borders.

    So I point out that there is nothing funny about the current border crisis and your defense is it might have been a really good joke?

    The point sails over your head.

    Obama is responsible only for his actions, and they are harming us as a nation. But decades of loose border policy has done untold harm to us. Lets hold ALL administrations responsible for the crisis arising out of unsecured borders, and not forget about this decades old problem as soon as a republican becomes president again. IOW, you keep on bitching when the next republican president fails to secure the border, too!

    Anything funny, unrelated to the current border problem may have been said, you don't know. Obama was in Texas to meet with the governor of Texas during a border problem of near unprecedented magnitude.

    The true believers are going to obfuscate and deflect every valid point you make. They are ecstatic about the destruction of the culture because they think it validates them personally. The majority of their posts are obviously just mindless nonsense and not to be taken seriously by Americans.

    Well, no, he was in Texas for some fund raisers and only decided to meet with Perry after he was ridiculed for doing nothing.

    Ironically, the initial plan by the Obama team was to only meet Perry on the tarmac when AF1 landed to get a photo op. It was at that point that Perry rejected the offer and stated publicly that he would rather meet Obama for serious talks about the border:


    “I appreciate the offer to greet you at Austin-Bergstrom Airport, but a quick handshake on the tarmac will not allow for a thoughtful discussion regarding the humanitarian and national security crises enveloping the Rio Grande Valley in South Texas,”


    That meeting that you are seeing pictures of were not in Obama's plans when he landed in Texas. It was only scheduled 2 days ago.

    Obama's original plans were to go to some fund raisers and avoid the border. His travel itinerary that was released to the press had plans for less than 1 meeting with Perry on the border crisis.
