The editorial “ Obama leads alone on overhauling immigration,” published by the CDT on July 13, does a disservice to readers. The opinion is contrary to fact, false and misleading. The public is entitled to an apology.
Obama has done nothing more than give lip service to the problem and falsely blame Republicans for his own failings. He was asked to take action by governors of the southern border states and the border patrol officers. He did nothing. In his first term in office, Democrats controlled Congress but he did nothing. He now asks Congress to give him a blank check for almost $3.7 billion but fails to indicate how he intends to spend it.
Obama has failed miserably in regard to the problem of illegal immigration reform.
