There you go again

Re: July 3 PolitiFact ar­ti­cle “Many ‘boots’ lined up on border, but record de­bat­able.”

Once again you are re­peat­ing in­com­plete and highly de­cep­tive in­for­ma­tion in de­fense of the pres­i­dent.

Thanks to the pre­vi­ous ad­min­is­tra­tion, we do have more Border Pa­trol “boots on the ground” than ever be­fore. And, thanks to the cur­rent and the nine pre­vi­ous ad­min­is­tra­tions, we do not have any­where near enough to con­trol the border and stop the in­va­sion. So far, all that our cur­rent and nine pre­vi­ous pres­i­dents have man­aged to do is dose us with eye­wash on this prob­lem.

Here’s what you need to chart out for your read­ers: Since the in­cep­tion of the Border Pa­trol, chart the growth of il­le­gal im­mi­gra­tion against the so-called “growth” of the Border Pa­trol. It will clearly show that our man­power needs for Border Pa­trol agents have not kept pace with the mag­ni­tude of growth in il­le­gal im­mi­gra­tion, and Pres­i­dent Barack Obama’s com­men­tary will then be ex­posed for the de­cep­tion that it is. rob daviS Wim­ber­ley
