Actually it's 52,000 of 300,000 since April are children under 18. So that would be 1/6 not 1/4.

This is definitely a crisis situation. One that Obama and his administration knew was coming for months but he is just now calling it an "emergency".
Maybe he read about it in the papers the other day.

If you weren't such an ignorant lying weasel, you would admit the Democrats were crying wolf about Saddam long before Bush came into the picture. They left preys on ignorant people like you.

Evidently you are all for this Party over Country plan.
Republicans knew that the better we recovered from the Bush recession, the less the Republican chances. Instead of helping, they chose to block recovery at every step.
Helping this country should be the "popular crowd",. Unfortunately to you anti-Ameria whiners, its all about party.
You are whining to a deaf public. Obama got all of his stimulus bills passed the first two years. The public stepped back and looked. The results were dismal and they have been reluctant to pay so much for so little again.

Mature Presidents have worked with Congress belonging to the other party through several administrations. Obama calls working with the other side the childish-my way or no way. This is why he is meet with resistance. He wants to make demands with no compromises coming from him.

Right now there are several things Obama could propose that would be greeted with open arms by the public and congress. He doesn't want them or is stubbornly refusing to go there.

It is rather lame for you to insist that Obama should be given his every demand.

The So-Called Immigration Border Crisis Is Neither

The GOP’s arguments about what caused this situation and what will fix it don’t hold up to the facts. Just pass the damn bill.

Central American kids are NOT fleeing their countries because of U.S. immigration policy.

Republicans are largely accusing that when President Obama granted immigration reprieve to so-called Dreamers—young undocumented immigrants already in the United States and brought here when they were children—his actions encouraged other people to immigrate, especially these kids from Central America. This highly partisan accusation falls flat with the facts.

The number of kids escaping Central America began to increase in 2009. There was a lull and then another uptick beginning in 2011. Both periods clearly predate President Obama’s enactment of DACA (Deferred Action for Child Arrivals) in 2012. Under any conception of linear time, there’s simply no possible argument for causality.

Added to this is the fact that Central American kids are trying to come to the United States but they’re also trying to go elsewhere. Mexico, Panama, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Belize are all seeing an increase in Central Americans seeking asylum as well.

Also, if American immigration policy were actually the draw, we would see an increase in kids migrating from all countries, not just Central America. But the number of Mexican children trying to cross the border into the United States has decreased in recent years. It seems reasonable to conclude that U.S. immigration policy is simply not driving this current crisis.

Republicans who attack Obama for not “enforcing laws” now don’t want to enforce Central American refugee laws we have on the books.

Conservatives have accused President Obama of “naked lawlessness” in exercising his constitutional discretion in enforcing our nation’s immigration laws. House Republicans have even threatened to sue President Obama—who has deported more undocumented immigrants than his predecessor—for among other things his alleged failure to “faithfully execute the laws of our country.” But it’s Republicans who don’t want to obey the law.

In 2008, President George W. Bush signed into law the William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act, which said that unaccompanied minors from countries non-contiguous with the United States (i.e., countries other than Mexico and Canada) are afforded greater legal protections. When a kid shows up at the border from Mexico or Canada, for instance, a Border Patrol agent has the legal authority to decide whether that child may be eligible to stay in the country. If not, the child is immediately handed over to officials from her or his home country. But the Wilberforce law—which was passed unanimously by both houses of Congress—liberalized that requirement to say that after being detained at the border, children from non-contiguous countries be turned over to the United States Department of Health and Human Services to receive care and safe housing and then receive legal counsel, and child advocates who can help determine whether they qualify for asylum.

Republicans backed that law, and now they are the ones who don’t want to enforce it but change it. GOP Rep. Raul Labrador of Idaho said the administration should “immediately deport” these children and families, which would be an open violation of the 2008 law. Democrats are balking at this idea. Hopefully President Obama will join them.

Yes I'm sure that you'd like to send these children back to the mercy of the gangs and deaths squads. It proves once again that your "pro life" stance is a total fraud.
What makes you think either Pelosi or the President are happy about the situation you clueless twit?
You're an idiot and a hypocrite Carol; got it?
Yes, Carol wants to listen to an ass like you that comes on here daily and calls her every name in the book. You need to get a grip on your emotions.

No one is buying your exaggerations. Yes, there is drug violence in central America as well as Mexico and most of South America, oppression in North Korea, real death squads searching out and killing Christians in Mid-East, etc.

Save the drama.

You apparently don't understand the meaning of mature and childish. Otherwise you'd recognize the childish behavior of a Congress claiming that the mature POTUS is a Muslim born in Kenya. When they created this lie, and others, they made it impossible to work with Obama because they had lathered up their base into a frenzy and any cooperation with Obama would get them primaried.

Please. Just stop. "You church people"? Really?
Reagan and Bush, Sr. and GW were frank about their belief in God and the preservation of all life. They didn't wear it on their sleeves but everyone knew where they stood.
And for the umpteenth time, I voted for Romney twice. It's not my fault some other "church people" felt differently.
But Romney could have won had he been more assertive in the last two debates and quicker to respond to the negative campaign ads.
Don't blame everything on imaginary "church people". A lot of "church people" supported and voted for Romney just like I did.
But it's late and Lily will be unhappy I stayed up so long. So goodnight.
Sure nitwit, GW was so into preserving all life that he signed off on more executions than any other Texas governor. ALL means ALL stupid!
Romney was a bald faced liar and his campaign raised mendacity to an art form.

dismal? right wing myth?

....under questioning from skeptical Republicans, the director of the nonpartisan (and widely respected) Congressional Budget Office was emphatic about the value of the 2009 stimulus. And, he said, the vast majority of economists agree.

In a survey conducted by the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, 80 percent of economic experts agreed that, because of the stimulus, the U.S. unemployment rate was lower at the end of 2010 than it would have been otherwise.

“Only 4 percent disagreed or strongly disagreed,” CBO Director Douglas Elmendorf told the House Budget Committee.“That,” he added,“is a distinct minority.”

Elmendorf’s testimony came in response to questions from Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-Kan.), a member of the tea party caucus. Huelskamp asserted that the stimulus was a failure because it did not keep the jobless rate below 8 percent, as the Obama administration predicted.

“Where did Washington mess up?” Huelskamp demanded.“Because you’re saying most economists think it should’ve worked. It didn’t.”

Most economists not only think it should have worked; they think it did work, Elmendorf replied. CBO’s own analysis found that the package added as many as 3.3 million jobs to the economy during the second quarter of 2010, and may have prevented the nation from lapsing back into recession.

will you please try to get something right today. watching you constantly fail is not as humorous as one would imagine seeing as how it speaks to the state of the right wing mentality, or lack there of. it's just sad.

No one has brought this up so....

In the midst of Obama once again looking incompetent, brilliant Valarie Jarret decided what he needed was a nickname that would make him appear strong.

She decided to call him "bear" and has been using this as a hashtag on her tweets to the great amusement of many.

I can understand made-up nonsense and this is one. Yes, some people challenged his birth certificate including Hillary Rodham Clinton. However, you lose common sense attempting to claim any resolutions were passed stating this.
