Obama's Claims of Border Security Are 'Far From Reality'

Hard to believe Obama's campaign stop in El Paso on Tuesday would come complete with lies, distortions and misinformation. Typically, he claims credit for things he had nothing to do with and just self-servingly makes things up. This should come as little surprise.
Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) conceded this week that security on the Mexican border has improved under the Obama administration – but not, he said, because of the president's policies.

"We are better than we were, I will grant the president that," Cornyn told Fox News on Tuesday. "But a lot of that's … because of what the Bush administration and Congress did during the preceding eight years, not what President Obama and his administration [have] done."
Not that Bush did the greatest job.
"People are coming from around the world through what they know is a porous border to come to the United States without us knowing who they are, what their motives are," Cornyn said. "This is a national security problem."

Still, his concession that the border situation has improved under Obama was unique Tuesday amid a torrent of GOP criticism that the White House hasn't done nearly enough to plug the southern border.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith (R-Texas), for instance, said Obama's claims that border security has improved under his watch are "far from reality."

"Our immigration system is broken because the Obama administration has refused to fully enforce the immigration laws already on the books," Smith said in a statement.
Yes, but point that out and you're racist or something.
