President: Bill Reduces Need for Border Fence

The President has directly confirmed something that opponents of the immigration bill fear, that enforcement of the border is not our nation's first priority under this proposed law.

In an interview the President "expressed hope that the changes would reduce the need for a fence along the border with Mexico."

But I thought increased border enforcement was going to eliminate the possibility of millions more illegals needing to be "regularized" in the future? How does the immigration bill, which will make coming to the United States more appealing than ever, reduce the need for a fence?

The President, discussing the opposition of some on the border to a fence, also said, "I presume we’re not going to build a fence on places where people don’t want it."

(Hat tip: Captain's Quarters.)

And then I read that the President is now going to work to eliminate greenhouse gases and wonder, what happened to the President for whom I voted?

Maybe the President should chat with the head of NASA about global warming...

As I see it, the President has been strong in three areas: the war on terror, tax reduction (although unfortunately he has also "grown the government"), and judicial picks (although in one case he had to be pushed by conservatives into correcting his pick).

Open borders? Reducing greenhouse gases?
