Shocking Claim: Obama Refuses to Secure Border for Politics

Republican Senator John Kyl of Arizona is claiming that President Obama stated he will not secure the border because then Republicans will not back comprehensive immigration reform.

In a meeting with constituents, Senator Kyl explains what President Obama told Republicans in a meeting in the Oval Office:

Fox News reports that the White House denies Kyl’s claim:

“The president didn’t say that and Senator Kyl knows it,” White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer said in a written statement. “There are more resources dedicated toward border security today than ever before, but, as the president has made clear, truly securing the border will require a comprehensive solution to our broken immigration system.”

It is unquestionable that the border is not secure and violence due to drug and human trafficking is escalating.  Whether or not Obama made the claim as Kyl stated, a political game is being placed with border security and illegal immigration while American lives remain at risk.

    I don't remember all this fuss when George Bush (either one) refused to secure the border.

      Actually, there was a HUGE uproar when GWB was working with McCain to jam an amnesty bill through the Senate.

    After all the LIES that has come out of this administration I'll go with Kyle on this one. Obama is a pathetic case for truth and transparency and he is destroying our country. He knew there were problems with BP in February, Hayworth and Goldman Sachs sold tons of shares of their stock so you tell me who do you believe.
