Obama seeks $3.7 billion to deal with border kids



Published: Tue, July 8, 2014 @ 1:51 p.m.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Tackling what he has called a humanitarian crisis, President Barack Obama today asked Congress for $3.7 billion to cope with a tide of minors from Central America who are illegally crossing the U.S. border, straining immigration resources and causing a political firestorm in Washington. The White House said the money would help increase the detention, care and transportation of unaccompanied children, help speed the removal of adults with children by increasing the capacity of immigration courts and increase prosecution of smuggling networks. The money would also increase surveillance at the U.S. border and help Central American countries repatriate border-crossers sent back from the United States.

Does it really cost $3,700,000,000 of the taxpayers money to put these people on buses and planes to send them back. If Barak Obama wants the money maybe he could ask the countries from which these people came from.

I remember back in 08, I had a bad feeling about him. He promised so many things to us Americans and followed through with none. In my opinion he is arrogant and stupid, how can one even rate him as a man? He was elected to the most powerful position in the world and has failed miserably. I would bet money he cares more about his next vacation then he does about America. I feel Barack Obama, his wife and the kids should be taken out of Whitehouse tonight. We cannot let this little boy bury a once great country. Barack Obama needs to resign and apologize to all veterans and their families for starters. Then to the millions of lives he has has disrupted on our soil. Then he can take his wife and his kids back to wherever he came from.

hvacguy,
Obama is proof-positive of an old adage: "Egotism is the anesthesia that deadens the pain of stupidity!" Obama fostered this mess by figuring that if the administration encouraged multitudes of children to flock across the border, the Republicans would have to pass comprehensive immigration reform. But, it backfired on him and he is clueless on what to do next. So, he is doing the only thing he knows; do some campaign fundraising stops and get in a few rounds of golf before the next scandal hits!
