Tea Party Slams Obama for Honoring Illegals amid Border Crisis
Obama loves all these illegals.

Honoring illegal immigrants at the White House as illegal immigrants pour across the border sends the wrong message, according to Tea Party Patriots co-founder Jenny Beth Martin.
“At a time when we already have an uncontrollable flood of people illegally entering the United States, President Obama’s decision to hold a White House ceremony honoring illegal immigrants is going to make a bad situation worse,” Martin said in a statement Tuesday afternoon.
Earlier in the day the Obama administration welcomed illegal immigrants accepted to the President’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program – which allows certain undocumented immigrants who came to the United States as children to live and work in the United States – to the White House and honored them as “Champions of Change.”
Lawmakers and commentators have charged that DACA is among the factors fueling rumors in Central American countries that illegal immigrants can get a free pass into the United States which are encouraging minors to risk the trek northward.
According to Martin and the Tea Party Patriots, Tuesday’s event at the White House sends a bad message.
