President Barack Obama stood in the shadow of a giant flag (“about half the size of a football field”*) planted in Mexico at the border in El Paso (Texas). Obama is busy building his 2012 reelection foundation, and he relied on politics rather than fact to draw support. He poked fun at Republicans and he beat the “comprehensive immigration reform” drum to a pulp.
Not once—not ever—has Obama talked about the fiscal impact of foreign nationals in the U.S. without documentation. We do not have an “immigration” problem and nor do those who want to come here. We have a foreign policy problem and we have a national security problem. The president is apparently clueless to both. When he held an immigration "stakeholders" meeting, he didn't invite a single border governor.
