Obama Did Say That The Southern Border Shouldn’t Be Secured

Republican Senator Jon Kyl has been in a food-fight with President Obama over comments Senator Kyl alleges Obama made to him about border security. Kyl told a tea party meeting that Obama said he didn’t want to secure the southern border because it would remove the impetus for “comprehensive immigration reform.” President Obama has accused Senator Kyl of lying.

The problem for Obama? Back in 2004 Obama made the very point Senator Kyl has accused him of making as President.

Our President doesn’t want to secure the southern border because an unsecured southern border is convenient for him politically.
