It’s a puzzle, isn’t it? Why, just now, are tens of thousands of people showing up on our Southern border and illegally entering the U.S.? Sure, Guatemala and Honduras have their faults, but life there is no worse this month than it has been for a long time. So President Obama is perplexed as to what could have attracted these tens, or hundreds, of thousands of migrants. Michael Ramirez offers a clue, which is consistent with news accounts of interviews with the immigrants. Click to enlarge:
Meanwhile, the latest news is that Obama has backed off on his alleged intention to “seek new legal authority to send unaccompanied migrant kids back home faster from the Southern border, following criticism that the administration’s planned changes were too harsh.” Instead, he will just ask Congress for more money so the illegals can enjoy the basic necessities of life. Like lawyers. That’ll help.
