Obama Repudiates Immigration Deal He Claimed Credit For
A central tenet of the so-called "Gang of Eight's" immigration compromise includes border security. Obama says: No way Jose.
The president will apparently argue that the administration has met reasonable goals on enforcing current immigration legislation, and that additional security will merely create new obstacles to legalizing the roughly 12 million illegal immigrants thought to be living in the United States. The federal government accelerated deportations in the first years of the Obama presidency, and sent new personnel to patrol the southwestern border.It seems that it was only yesterday that he was trying to claim credit for the deal. In fact, it was yesterday.
