Well said, in 2 years there will be a republican using change as his slogan. He will probably get elected and lie to us just like Obama has done. Be careful what you wish for ppl, impeaching him will cause TPTB to start fighting among each other and it could spill to us citizens. I just want to be told the truth, am I asking for too much?

It sure isn't the party she was representing. Obama offer to give companies tax breaks to bring jobs back to America but the Republicans voted against it.

Nice try but the LEFT owns the current border crisis.
When Bush was in office what did he do again? like Obama he went on playing golf.
so what...Obama is handling it the way he should be....it's easy to sit back and bitch, but I've haven't heard of a better way to do it, legally and morally...if anyone has a better way, write it down and send it in.
The $250 a day figure compares with the $667 one-way cost of an airline ticket from McAllen, Texas, to Guatemala City, Guatemala, according to both Orbitz and Priceline. The combined airfare for 29,358 passengers would be $19.6 million. That is one-half of 1 percent of President Obama’s overall $3.8 billion request. Volume discounts and government rates would yield even lower fares. But even without discounts, sending everyone home right away saves taxpayers 99.5 percent!
It’s also closer to fly them from McAllen to Guatemala City than to Murietta, California. Only 1,297 miles compared to 1,549 miles. And no protesters.
But what about the red-tape processing that Obama says gets in ther way? We know the president skirts inconvenient laws when he wants to do so. And although there is some red tape for the minors, there is no federal law that requires officials to drag their feet on deporting the thousands of adults newly arrived from Central America. And no red tape on the accompanied minors. All of them can be placed on planes pronto, arriving home far more quickly than it took them to journey to Texas. And arriving there more quickly than flying to California.
Regarding the unaccompanied juveniles, officials such as Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson don’t seem to have read the law. Johnson told NBC’s “Meet the Press” that the top priority is “doing right by the children.” Actually, the law states the top priority is to repatriate those children to their country of origin.
