WikiLeaks Reveals Obama Supporting Border Fence

A leaked internal memo from Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign says that fencing at the US-Mexico border could help cut down on illegal immigration.

The memo, which was made public by anti-secrecy organization WikiLeaks, is dated September 7, 2008 and contains a list of immigration promises and proposals.

One of Obama’s “core goals,” according to the memo: “Preserve the integrity of our borders to reduce illegal immigration.”

“Securing our borders will not solve the illegal immigration problem in isolation, but combined with an earned path to citizenship for the undocumented and new legal alternatives to unauthorized entry, some additional fencing could help get the border under control.”

A section titled “Fencing,” says Obama “Supports physical fencing along border under very specific circumstances, where it makes sense as a matter of security and to act as a deterrent to unsafe undocumented entry.”

“Additional fencing on the border is not a comprehensive solution, but it sometimes helps deter people from taking the risk of entering illegally,” the memo states.

    Everyone except those who drank his kool-aid, have known that Obama has lied about this and just about everything else that has come out of his mouth, he has written on the computer and written by hand. So I guess that makes him a complete liar. Too bad it took eight years for the country to realize that and finally have enough of it to do something about it. Trump will raise the awareness of the American people to just how corrupt the Obama/Clinton and Soros regime has been and hopefully not allow that kind of thing to happen again. As the saying goes, “the truth will set you free” and we now have a chance at freedom again.

    It’s funny when Obama asked congress for help with the borders they said no but the right has no problem blaming him for the problem. The number of illegals in the country has been going down under him but now when Trump asks for the same things as Obama he is a hero. Go figure.

      There’s one big difference you are overlooking bobnstuff. This memo is from 2008. Obama did NOTHING to act on it. Yes, he has supposedly deported more illegals than anyone else, but by percentage, he has not. More illegals are entering…we have over 12 million in this country. NO ONE that I know of is against immigrants. These people are not LEGAL. That is the issue the MSM and libs conveniently leave out. Are you telling me you approve of people breaking our laws and living in our country getting free education and medical and food stamps, etc.? Do you work? If so, this is why we are trillions in debt. This is why CA is on the verge of bankruptcy. We can not continue as a republic and allow our laws to be broken. We love immigrants. We love people coming to America LEGALLY. What part of that do the left wing loonies not understand? Coming here ILLEGALLY does not make you an immigrant or undocumented worker. It makes you a criminal. We must have laws. We must have rules. Without them, we are talking complete chaos.

        Lets look at the facts, Obama has deported large numbers, he supported a overhaul of our immigration laws, he ask congress for help dealing with the illegals in our country and for more border agents to keep them out. In every case when asked for help the Republicans said no.If you look at who is doing what with illegal immigration it looks like the Republicans are the ones supporting it by doing nothing to fix the problem.

        The federal government doesn’t give any of those freebees to the illegals since none of those programs are run by them. Those are all state run programs. What they do give them is support while they are waiting for their hearing that is required by law before they can be deported. Right now it’s a 60 week wait because congress would not expand the immigration courts. It costs over a hundred thousand dollars per person to keep these people in jail so it’s cheaper to support them in the community. It’s not like being here illegally is that big a crime under the eyes of the law. It’s just a misdemeanor like a speeding ticket.

    Controlling the entry of people into the country makes sense. America has always been a land of opportunity for those who wish to work hard. In recent years our lax borders has made America a land of opportunity for criminals and the lazy. Criminals can commit their crimes and then go over the border when they begin to feel the heat from law enforcement. The lazy come here and then live off welfare programs which were created to help Americans.
