Boy, this takes some giant onions, huh? Nice to see Jay Carney’s replacement has as much contempt for the public as his predecessor did.
After previously saying America’s borders are more secure than ever, the White House on Tuesday seemingly blamed Republicans for apparent holes along the southern boundary, evidenced by the flood of unaccompanied children streaming into the U.S. from Mexico, Central America and elsewhere.
White House press secretary Josh Earnest challenged Republicans, if they are truly concerned about border security, to back the comprehensive immigration reform package that passed the Senate last year and is strongly supported by President Obama.
“If we really wanted to solve this problem, one good way to do it is for those Republicans to get on board … and support common sense immigration reform,” Mr. Earnest told reporters.
Legislation is only “common sense” if it’s lopsided toward Democrats. So to summarize, Democrats create a problem, watch it grow into a crisis, then blame Republicans and call for “common sense” reform.
