Governor Rick Perry finally got his meeting with Obama! After declining to meet Perry at the border — Obama insisted “There’s nothing that is taking place down there that I am not intimately aware of and briefed on. This isn’t theater. This is a problem. I’m not interested in photo ops. I’m interested in solving a problem,” — he somehow found the time to meet with Perry. Not interested in photo-ops? I think the endless photos of his lavish vacations and his trysts on his Daisy Ten speed wearing his famous mom jeans, would say he’s all about the photo-ops! In photos published by PJMedia, Obama appeared to find the meeting quite hilarious, as photos show him smiling and laughing, while Perry’s facial expressions seemed much more serious. What? No selfies this time?
Obama was attending a pro-immigration fundraiser at the home of Robert Rodriguez who made the movie Machete. The movie is about the journey of illegal aliens crossing the border. The movie depicts violence towards illegals, even showing a scene where a pregnant illegal is shot to death by a “minute-man” type character trying to protect the border. America is so thrilled that he could fit this into his busy party schedule! It really shows how much he cares for his constituents and keeping America safe.
According to reports, Obama and Perry had disagreed on one key issue during their rendezvous, getting congressional approval before acting. According to the liar-in-chief, Perry wants him to act without Congress. Obama said, “He suggested, well maybe you just need to go ahead and act and that might convince Republicans that they should go ahead and pass the supplemental. I had to remind him, I’m getting sued right now by Mr. Boehner apparently for going ahead and acting instead of going through congress. Well, here’s a good test case,” reported PJMedia. Funny how the threat of a little law suit will make you act in the way a President should in the first place!
Obama sent to congress a 3.7 million dollar budget proposal which he says will solve the crisis. $1.1 billion of that budget would go to the Department of Homeland Security for border security and $1.8 billion to the Department of Health and Human Services to help care for all of the criminals who are here waiting to suck off of the system. $1.8 billion dollars to care for these illegals? Where is the money going to come from? Americans are stretched to the max financially as it is! Maybe China can loan us the money?
Perry expressed his main concerns to Obama which are:
The number of border patrol agents; the position of the border patrol to deter entry into the country rather than apprehending them; the difference in dealing with kids entering from Central America who are not turned back as opposed to kids from Mexico who are turned back; and too many illegal immigrants not showing up for their court dates.
Obama blamed the spike in Illegals crossing the border on security changes within Mexico and the prospect of drug cartels making money for transporting people across the desert into America. Of course he didn’t mention the real reason which is an unsecure border and lack of leadership among our elected officials. Who would want to secure a border when you see potential votes?
When Texas congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee heads down to the border to hand out lollypops, and when House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi visits, she says, “I wish I could take all those children home with me,” what kind of message are our elected officials sending? It says we are the world’s welcome wagon! Come one come all! Criminals apply!
Disease, gang members, murderers, terrorist groups, and drug cartels are just a few of the vile tripe that is entering into our country illegally. Our laws are being deliberately ignored and broken with no consequences being felt by the illegal lawbreaking aliens. I guess the citizens of the U.S. will see just what it means for these invaders to become the new “protected class”. At what cost is it? It is the cost of an American dream my friends, and that’s no laughing matter.
