Hope & Change – The Hat Gun

Brian Lovig talks Hope & Change – The Hat Gun

Thousands of illegal immigrants are flooding across the border into Texas and other border states every day, but two things distinguish this wave from earlier illegal immigration waves.

First, Hondurans, Salvadorans, and Guatemalans now make up about 75 percent of illegals caught in South Texas, whereas previously most people who crossed the border illegally originated in Mexico. Second, large numbers of these illegal migrants are unaccompanied children. A Reuters article on May 29 cited Obama administration estimates that 60,000 children unaccompanied by parents or relatives will pour into the United States this year, up from about 6,000 in 2011.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that only 27% of Likely U.S. Voters now think the president is doing a good or excellent job when it comes to immigration. That’s down five points from 32% in June and his lowest positives in monthly surveying since January of last year. Fifty-one percent (51%) rate Obama’s performance on immigration issues as poor, a seven-point jump from 44% in the previous survey and a new high.

Vice President Joe Biden admitted to a group of young progressives on Wednesday that the “change” promised in his and President Obama’s 2008 “Hope and Change” campaign “didn’t happen,” but urged the left-wing youngsters not to throw in the towel.

“Look folks, this is within our power to change,” he told the kids gathered for the annual convention of Generation Progress, the youth branch of the left-wing Center for American Progress think-tank.

“Everybody says because we tried in ’08 and it didn’t happen, it’s not possible,” Biden admitted soberly. “Wrong. We’ve gone through these periods before. We’ve gone through these periods.”
