Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX) says Obama Administration One Step Behind on Immigration Crisis And Should Have Seen It Coming

 

Who is to say he didn’t and this wasn’t his plan all along?

It is not just Republicans who are being critical of Barack Obama and his dealing with US immigration policies. Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX) appeared on CNN’s ‘State of the Union’ this Sunday and stated, “let’s keep in mind, with all due respect to the administration, they’re one step behind.”  Hmm, just one step? What does anyone think would happen when you do not secure your border?

Full CNN transcript can be read HERE.

CUELLAR: It’s not the first time we have seen a surge, and we should have been ready for this surge. The administration should have been ready.

CROWLEY: Well, I think you both agree the administration, you don’t feel, was ready.

Let me ask you, Congressman, do you think the president will get the $2 billion plus that he’s asking for to meet this emergency situation, with more help at the border, more social workers to deal with the children?

CUELLAR: Well, again, we got Border Patrol securing the border right now, as you can see behind us.

But the president has asked for some money. He certainly can move some moneys around, and we can handle that at the end if we want to. Again, let’s keep in mind, with all due respect to the administration, they’re one step behind.

They should have seen this coming a long time ago. They should have seen this a long time ago, because we saw those numbers increasing. We’re hoping that we can get that money, so we can provide more detention spaces, more flights down there. And, again, if we put those young children and those mothers and the right caregivers in those countries, I think this would solve — there is an incentive, there is an incentive that, if you bring a child over here or your child by themselves, you’re going to be let go.

And that’s exactly what is happening. Our immigration courts are so backlogged, there’s not enough detention spaces. And, therefore, this is the incentive that we have to take away. And that’s the 2008 human trafficking law that needs to be changed at this time.

      definitely planned by the democrat thug party in an attempt to force amnesty. surely the House will not bow to this illegal president and his ignorant followers.
      notice how there are hundreds, maybe thousands of Afghans and other middle easterners mixed in ? possibly thousands of terrorists crossing our borders daily.

      now the white house has contacted this guy and told him to shut up the complaining. I do have to give it to him, he is still talking. One thing he should be aware of is that he could easily come up missing in the fray with one word from Obama.
