REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – President Barack Obama turned down a demand from Texas Gov. Rick Perry, a potential 2016 Republican presidential candidate, that he visit the border where the child migrant crisis is happening.

“This isn’t theater. This is a problem. I’m not interested in photo ops. I’m interested in solving a problem,” Obama said, responding to those who slammed him for declining Perry’s invitation.

Obama says lawmakers should instead focus on approving his request for $3.7 billion if they want to solve the problem.

The influx of undocumented youth from Central America has overwhelmed border resources.

But House Republicans have made it clear that there won’t be a speedy vote.

“I can tell you this though – we are not giving the President a blank check,” Republican House Speaker John Boehner said. “Beyond that we will for further discussions with our members before we make any final decisions.”

Boehner added: “Listen, this is a problem of the President’s own making. He’s been president for five and a half years. When is he going to take responsibility for something?”

    what a contemptible obozo, and his bullshit artist clowns, deluding the public to hand him the 3.7billions will easily solve the doomsday in the border. obozo is asking for billions for open invitations to illegal aliens, used to be on foot, now all means of transportations being used, via planes are mind blowing. if this is the case, the PH should start air lifting all the poor to the poorest children to the borders of america, why should the hispanics the only one at advantage, and be the sole grantees of this crisis, and the insanity of this insane POTUS. while you all are with this craziness of unlawful system of immigration, why not round up all the poor to the poorest children of the third world countries to come to the borders via cargo ships, and chartered planes run by the outlaw cartels, to really give the bitter tastes to all these commie populous living in america, not wanting to move to cuba, north korea, the same as these illegal alien invaders not wanting to enter the socialist nations.

    if obummer was able to change the immigration laws with his DACA executive order, by the stroke of his pen. then, he can do the same as the only one, who are in power to change the immigration laws for central america’s illegal aliens, to remove adjudications to swift deportations, the only way to solve this unstoppable minor illegal alien border crossers. obama has two sides of face with both sides of his face is the right side, easily duping the public on all his wrong actions, and decisions with impunity. it was so easy to impeach nixon, but obozo gets away with his love for lawlessness, the same way as getting away with murder.

    obozo and his bozos in the WH are calling these illegal alien border crossers as refugees, and the camps as refugee camps are signals this a..hole POTUS is not interested in deporting these minor illegal alien border crossers, instead he wants more to come over to the USA soil. refugees are displaced people in their own country, escaping wars and persecutions. none of these minor illegal alien border crossers fall on the refugee criteria. the war they are escaping are the drug wars, the USA have the same drug wars right in the chicago hood of obummer. the refugee claims are pure manipulations of the adult/minor illegal alien border crossers, not only facilitated by obozo and his bozos, but with the all out demonicrap blessings.
