Obama Fails Americans Again On Immigration
The Obama administration is continuing its campaign to drag the United States into a third world debt ridden socialist utopia. With the unemployment rate still spiking, government debt growing and border security vital as ever why does this idiot keep adding to the problem. We as a nation cannot afford to pay for the unskilled, uneducated masses pouring across our borders anymore. Just across the border 15,000 people have been killed in the growing cartel violence. We have Islamic jihadist trying to hatch the next 911, why is Obama doing even less then Bush to lock down the border. Just as troubling is the violence affecting every one of our cities coming from Mexican and other countries drug gangs. Is Obama and the (D) so hell bent on adding the 12-30 million illegals to there partys numbers that he is willing to throw the rest of us to the wolves?
Pres. Obama Proposes to Cut 180 Border Patrol Agents

Pres. Barack Obama’s newly proposed 2011 budget would reduce the number of Border Patrol agents along the Southwest border by 180 and cut the funding for the “virtual fence.” Homeland Security said it plans to cut the jobs through attrition, and it would result in increased pay for the remaining agents.
White House senior officials say the move will not compromise the effectiveness of the border patrol. But House Judiciary Ranking Member Lamar Smith (R-Texas) says otherwise.
The President’s budget proves once again that the Obama administration is not serious about enforcing our nation’s immigration laws.
The administration found money for 25 new positions in the Secretary of Homeland Security’s management office, but didn’t find funds for any of the following critical homeland security programs: there is no funding for a single new detention bed, no increase in funds to find and deport immigration fugitives or criminal aliens, no additional special agents to investigate workplace immigration violations, no funding to expand the visa security program, and no funding to build any more of the border fence.
The President ought to be using immigration enforcement to address key priorities such as jobs and national security. But instead of doing so, the Obama administration is maintaining the status quo. That means that citizens and legal immigrants will be forced to continue to compete with eight million illegal immigrants for jobs; and by underfunding key national security programs, we leave ourselves vulnerable to future terrorists attacks.
— Ranking Member Lamar Smith
The “virtual fence” would have funding cut by $226 million. The system is made up of cameras, radar and sensors placed on towers.
