The day after President Obama declared that the U.S. border with Mexico is secure, three lawmen from Texas showed up at a congressional hearing and destroyed his claim.
Obama was merely repeating falsehoods earlier uttered by his Homeland Security Secretary, Janet Napolitano, whose repeated insistence that the border is secure was, again, proven false by a more competent authority.
The bottom line on the matter is that either Obama and his cabinet Secretary are woefully ignorant of the real conditions on the border, or they are simply lying to keep the media spotlight off the violence that plagues American citizens who live near Mexico. Doing so will help Democrats keep the border open for illegal aliens to, someday, join the ranks of Democrat voters.
