Fox News' Ed Henry to W.H.: Why Didn’t Obama Do Anything About Immigration When Dems Controlled Congress?

By Washington Free Beacon Staff

Fox News reporter Ed Henry asked White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest why President Obama failed to produce immigration reform during the first two years of his administration, when Democrats controlled both the House and the Senate.

Obama has complained recently that House Republicans are to blame for not passing immigration reform.

“Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, they were running the House and Senate,” Henry reminded Earnest. “They failed to act for two years. Why didn’t he do anything then?”

“At the time, you recall back in 2009, there were many things on the president’s plate,” Earnest replied.

“As there are now — Israel, Gaza, Syria, the economy — he has a lot going on now, right?” Henry countered.

because there wasn't much mileage in using immigrant kids for their own political purposes back then.
Trump does not represent the will of the people.  If we really wanted to respect the decision of "the people," then Clinton would be the president-elect, not Trump, for the simple reason that she won the popular vote.

Illegal immigration has been used as a campaign issue, by both parties, for decades. Actually doing something meaningful, either way, would remove or diminish the usefulness of the issue at election time.

Republicans argue to deport the sods at election time, except the rest of the time when their backers urge more immigrants for businesses.

Democrats argue for amnesty at election time, except the rest of the time when Obama has set deportation records.

And "The Beat Goes On."

Use them for target practice.  From what I understand, such things are enjoyable when prairie dogs are used.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.
