That wasn't my only rebuttal.<quoted text>
You use a republican quote as your rebuttal? Facts really don't mean anything to you do they?
I also pointed out that IF it were a law passed in 2008 that caused this (which no one even knew about until Obama started pointing to it as an excuse ... how typical) that the uptick in children coming here would have started much closer to 2008.
I also pointed out that IF it were violence causing this, central america has been a violent shyte hole for a long time and certainly the uptick would have started long ago.
Therefore, neither of these excuses seem to be the likely cause for this huge surge.
What makes the most sense is how for the past few years democrats and Obama have been quite vocal about the need for amnesty and how Obama trying to pandering to latinos by shouting from the rooftop that he won't enforce immigration laws. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out what affect these things would have and that it would only encourage more and more to come here. Do you deny this? Try being objective for once.
