    What are you talking about? "Motivation"? "Obsequious speech"? You will have to tell me what you think rather than "ask myself". You get your information from sources with an overly conservative slant.

    It seems like you switched from Iraqi children to Mexican border children. You seem to be confusing the two.

    Funding for the immigration fiasco was hung up by bickering in the Senate and House. House Republican leaders indicated that President Obama could address the crisis “without the need for congressional action,” a statement tinged with some irony given that just the day before, House Republicans had slammed the President with a lawsuit claiming executive overreach.

    Republicans have claimed that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program was responsible for the surge of child arrivals at the southern border since the beginning of the 2014 fiscal year, as well as the reason why they could never pass immigration reform. It seems that the executive action that House Republican leaders have expressed the most interest in since last year has been to dismantle the DACA program, voting three times to dissolve the DACA program, an issue that researchers found has little to do with the current border crisis (eligible DACA applicants must have entered and continuously lived in the United States before June 2007).
