It was a way for Clinton and Janet Reño to make their bones with their base, as it were, and that’s exactly what Obama’s doing with immigration the other way. Do you know, folks, that some of these unaccompanied children from El Salvador or Ecuador and Guatemala are being flown here?
And do you know that at the point they’re being picked up and flown here, the trip to the United States is longer than the trip to take them back home, and yet they’re still coming here? And Obama says he’s not gonna change his strategy. This immigrant surge will not produce any change or even a reassessment. “The White House is not planning to reassess its strategy for handling thousands of unaccompanied minors streaming across the border amid mass protests.”
