Bill O’Reilly: Obama Administration Said for Years the Border Was Secure – ‘The Public Was Sold a Lie’ (Video)
Bill O’Reilly cut loose in his Talking Points Memo on Monday after the 4th of July.
O’Reilly accused the Obama Administration of lying about border security.
From Bill’s Monday July 7, 2014 Talking Points Memo:
From Bill’s Talking Points Memo – July 7, 2014:
Again, the Obama administration seems unprepared to deal with the problem. Late today the A.P. reported there is no plan to send immigrant children back to their countries yet. No plan. Last week ABC News reported the situation this way.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Melissa here brought her five-year-old son on the journey. Starting in Honduras, then eight days on a bus through Mexico, across the Rio Grande by raft to McAllen, Texas, four nights in a border patrol processing center and then by bus to Maryland. All with just one promise: show up in court today at 10:00 in the morning in Baltimore.
ABC News was there. She was not. She wasn’t at the Maryland address she gave either. Border Patrol sources say fewer than 20 percent ever show up as promised.

O’REILLY: That’s a disaster and every fair-minded person knows it. But we are living in a time of intense ideology which sometimes fogs up dangerous situations. Some on the left believe that the U.S.A. should accept all so-called refugees, all of them. And if you oppose that philosophy, you are inhumane, uncaring, unchristian, and so on. The demonization of opposition has been effective for the left spurred on by a sympathetic media.
For example, Americans who believe that companies should not pay for abortion inducing medications are practicing gender bigotry. If you believe people on welfare should be drug tested you are anti-poor. If you believe an I.D. should be shown at the voting booth like they do in Canada, you are anti-poor. If you believe traditional marriage should have a special place in society, you are a homophobe. And in some cases if you criticize President Obama’s policies you are a racial bigot.
That’s why there is so much anger in America. The issues have become very personal. No longer are opposing points of view respected and the left is driving this terrible train although, although, I have to say pictures of anti-illegal immigration protesters spitting at people were disgusting. There is a lunatic fringe on the right as well and it greatly harms the debate for effective immigration policy.
The truth is that President Obama has lost control of the process. America is now being threatened by terrorists once again. And the terrorists believe they are winning. The southern border is a sieve. Mexico is facilitating hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens coming into this country.
What’s the administration doing to Mexico? Nothing.
Finally, in a perfect world, all oppressed people would be given an opportunity to have a better life. America is a place of opportunity. We should take a sane number of immigrants every year into our system. But to have millions of mostly poor people, pour into this country without the resources to care for them, to educate them, to relocate them, is simply anarchy.
The Obama administration said for years the border was secure. That was the backbone of the proposed immigration reform law. But it’s not true and never has been true. The public was sold a lie.
If Americans don’t wake up and soon and demand a better performance from their elected officials on all levels, this country will continue to decline.
