Senator Kyl Or Obama Lying On Immigration Policy?

Republican Senator Jon Kyl of Arizona that Barack Obama told him that Barack doesn't want to control the US border with Mexico because he wants to use the unsecured border as leverage to get immigration amnesty. "The president said the problem is if we secure the border, then you all won't have any reason to support comprehensive immigration reform."

Barack's spokesman denies Barack said that.

Bill Burton, a White House spokesman, said, "The president didn't say that. Senator Kyl knows the president didn't say that."

"But what everybody knows because the President has made it perfectly clear is that what we need to do is everything that we can to bring about comprehensive immigration reform," he added. "And that includes not just securing the border, but doing a lot of other things."

Oh come on Bill Burton, stop telling a blatant lie. "Comprehensive immigration reform" amounts to amnesty and a way for the people who cross illegally to instead cross legally. We've had amnesties in the past where the promise was after each amnesty then finally immigration law would be enforced. The promise of immigration law enforcement is the standard lie dangled in order to get support for amnesty.

If Obama wants to prove that it is Senator Kyl and not Barack who is lying then all Obama has to do is what he so far refuses to do: Build a massive multi-layer wall along the US border with Mexico and stop all illegal crossings. Then do vigorous interior enforcement of immigration law. He does not need "comprehensive immigration reform" to enforce the law.

Senator Kyl himself supported amnesty in 2007. At least he flip-flopped in the right direction.

Only illegal crossings? Not illegal plane and boat landings? Not illegal -permit-expired- tourists who decide to stay longer and look for work?

Maybe Randall thnks that the only illegal immigration is from and via Mexico... Sorry Randall, there's illegal immigration into the U.S. from all over the world: China, Europe, Australia, Africa, Asia. There are illegal immigrants-to-be who enter holding passports and genuine visas. There are illegal immigrants who enter "legally-illegally" because the government let's them in during the harvest and key agricultural seasons.

Hey maybe the U.S. should build a "massive multi-layer" all along the Pacific and Atlantic Coasts as well... Hey, maybe while at it, why not make another one of those "multi-layers" along the Canadian border -Lakes and all. A giant glass dome over the U.S. would come in pretty handy, wouldn't it?
I got it! Why not just take the U.S. and separate it from the rest of this riff-raff planet... I mean it is already amazing how much Americans have isolated themselves from the rest of the world...
