OMG! Obama Holds the Border Hostage Ahead of Immigration Reform

Monday, June 21, 2010 , 3 Comments

This is one of those cases where Obama is dealing with a mess left by his predecessors, who felt compelled to leave our borders wide open (conspiracy theorists will tell you that was intentional to advance the North American Union agenda) and doing a really crappy job of resolving the situation. Too little too late and now he's got to convince the Republicans that he's all about "reform" when they aren't willing to budge on the slightest issue, let alone one of the largest problems facing our nation today.

Gee, good thing our economy is in the shitter otherwise we'd really be beating off those illegal immigrants with a stick eh? It's not Mexico-US we need to worry about, it's Canada-US once we start fleeing North ifyouknowwhatI'msayin.

Unfair and unbalanced FOXnews

President Obama is refusing to secure the border until Congress reaches a breakthrough on comprehensive immigration reform, Arizona Sen. Jon Kyl said at a recent town hall meeting.

The No. 2 Senate Republican, in a video clip posted on YouTube showing the senator speaking to a local Tea Party crowd on Friday, said the president told him during a one-on-one meeting in the Oval Office that he was concerned he wouldn't win GOP support on immigration legislation if he took care of border security first.

"The problem is, he said, if we secure the border, then you all won't have any reason to support comprehensive immigration reform," Kyl said, as the crowd in the room gasped loudly. "In other words, they're holding it hostage."

Now that's low.

If you ask me, it's becoming a non-issue. Let's just keep destroying the dollar and making America inhabitable and pretty soon the problem will be magically solved as Mexicans will prefer home to whatever crap it is we have going on over here. We're almost there.

Some say he’s half man half fish, others say he’s more of a seventy/thirty split. Either way he’s a fishy bastard.

If you want to solve a problem, you segment it and then work the problem in discrete stages. If you want to fail then lump a bunch of problems in one pile and attempt to solve them all at once.

Our system of government is so constituted to resist "comprehensive" anything. As is our natures. I can understand Professor Broad strokes on the blackboard making this mistake. I don't understand how Bush made it.

Segment the problem - start with border security - which is a basic responsibility of government - and any President can get border security without Congress. That also will de-racialize it which is to all parties advantage, and will allow us the breathing room to realize we need immigrants in a less charged atmosphere.

We have a failing state and a war zone to our South, if exactly the same situation occurred in Canada - they're white and speak English, mostly - we'd never have a debate on this issue.

The Mexican insurgency is BTW emulating many of the aspects of the Iraqi insurgency. It's Saddam's actual legacy to the world. As Mexico is beginning to look like Iraq 04/05-ish now, frankly we'd have to get as bad or worse here for them to stop coming. You can check out your co-blogger John Robb at Global Guerrillas for background. Most people get the Hell away from a war if they're not soldiers. I'd advise it. As that state fails the torrent may well become a real deluge.

As far as him holding hostage anything that will advance his cause to remake us into E-Utopia - yes. The overwhelming good deed done justifies all sacrifice. As long as it's not them making it.

hahahahahahahaha LOL like THAT will ever happen.

I also take issue with a president doing "comprehensive" anything since it's a lot easier to repair small changes than it is to retroactively adjust a complete overhaul (fast forward to us in a few years trying to "fix" Obamacare and you'll know exactly what I'm talking about).

You got it 100%, border security is a responsibility of government, one that we have not been getting from our leaders for quite some time. Of course now it's a big fucking issue and no one seems to know how to fix it so instead we just get megalomaniac OMG over here threatening to leave the border wide open if Republicans even hint at any type of cockblock whatsoever to his plan.

It's sad that it's come to this but such is our country right now.
