Barack “No-we-can’t” Obama on US border security

[ (BHO): “We can’t seal the border, so let me be clear: ALL illegal immigrants, regardless of their criminal behavior – will be given complete immunity and pardon ONLY IF they promise to support the liberal ticket and further entitlement programs…. Let me be clear: We can’t seal the borders, but I AM – alone – the world’s hope for security. Despite the reservations of my conservative colleagues, let me state this as plainly as I can: We can’t seal the borders, but I love America and respect the 10th Amendment regarding State’s rights: We will sue Arizona only in the name of political equality for ALL people, regardless of skin color, national origin, economic status, criminal background, and religious affiliation (except for Christians, of course, who should be thrown to the lions).  Again, let me be clear: We can’t seal the border any more than we can stop the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, but that doesn’t mean I can’t get a few more rounds of golf in or schedule some more galas at the White House… We can’t seal the border, but YES WE CAN DESTROY the United States!” ]

WASHINGTON, July 1 (Reuters) – President Barack Obama renewed his push for U.S. immigration reform on Thursday, reaching out to Hispanic voters despite minimal chances that Congress will pass such legislation this year.

In a broad speech that did not break new policy ground, Obama, a Democrat, called for Republican support to pass a law that addresses the 11 million illegal immigrants in the country without disrupting the economy or violating American values.

Obama has been under pressure to keep his promise from the 2008 presidential campaign to overhaul U.S. immigration rules. A tough new law in Arizona has brought the issue to the forefront of public debate, galvanizing Hispanics, who are an important constituency for November’s congressional elections.

The president, speaking at American University, criticized the Arizona law but made no mention of a potential lawsuit by his administration to block it before it goes into affect on July 29. The U.S. Justice Department is expected to file a lawsuit challenging the law shortly.
