I'm not sure why it bothers you so much - all politicians do the photo-op thing.
For the last 6 YEARS it has been never letting a good prop go to waste' Quick take my picture' to preserve how 'awesome' Obama is!
You can fall for it if you want,

It's obvious why Mexico isn't stopping them and/or even helping them.
Mexico would rather see the drain on the American coffers than their own
Why cross multiple countries to get to America?
It's not about being a refugee it is about wanting a better life. I can't blame them for that. EVERYONE wants a better life.

Didn't the Governor of this state not just snub Obama for the same reason? No photo op?
It is "bad press" to be seen with Obama these days.
Even some Democrats are avoiding him.
Especially the ones running for office this year.
Question is: is it America's responsibility to provide a better life for everyone on the planet that wants one?
Really, Neo? Only the Left benefits from Amnesty? Then why do many on the Right, like John McCain, support amnesty?
But I think what this is all about, as I stated before, is the Right needs something to whine about. The Republicans don't care about amnesty or illegal immigration, but their base only seems to get motivated and vocal when they have something to cry about.
I think the folks on the right need to take the time to stop acting like a bunch of cry-baby pansies and really look at what is happening here. You guys are regurgitating the same talking points the party is handing out and have you believing they are firmly against illegal immigration, but they're not.
I didn't see them crying about the illegal Patriot Act or warrant-less wire-tapping. Why is that? Hmmmm
