GOP Outraged at Obama's Visa Move: 'Blatantly Breaking the Law'

Republicans were outraged Thursday after the Obama administration eased new visa requirements for certain European travelers who have visited Iran, Iraq, Syria, or Sudan in the last five years — accusing President Barack Obama of appeasing Tehran and charging that the changes would undercut efforts to prevent terrorists from entering the United States. 

"The Obama administration is blatantly breaking the law, a law the president himself signed," said House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul of Texas. "This is not a difference of opinion over statutory interpretation, it is a clear contradiction of the law and the agreement we reached with the White House. 

"President Obama is again putting his relationship with Iran's supreme leader over the security of Americans." 

Both McCaul and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte said that the new exemptions had already been rejected by Congress.

Obastard needs to go asap!

We are supposed to be impressed by the "gop's" reactions? I'VE HAD IT with the rinocrats&demicans!

Why aren't the Democrats outraged?  Obama is destroying their Country, too.  Do they want to have their young children raped or have their hands cut off for shop lifting a candy bar? Do they want suicide bombers killing innocent people at the mall?  Do they want to be forced to deny their religion? I'm reasonably sure that the GOP is not the only organization that is angry about Mr. Obama's attempts to hurt this Great Country and its people.  The GOP can impeach Obama, but the problem is that without the Democrats, they can't get enough votes to punish him. 

Unfortunately, it appears that the DEMONRATS are morons, idiots, ideologues and intellectual elitists who live in ivory towers somewhere in outer space.  Reality is not a part of their gig.

They live off the rest of us. They are the world's Parasites. They suck off of the real earners, while slapping them/us around and we let them. This is their country now, they are allowed to do whatever they choose to until they're put down! Who has a pair, anyone?

Wake me when they really do something.

My sentiments exactly.  The feigned outrage of Congress is as disgusting as the imperial actions of Obama.  And the GOP wonders why people are going for a non politician like Trump?  Here is another reason why.

Exactly.  All hot air and again nothing done about anything while our country goes down the tube.

What is the big deal, Obama has been breaking the law since day one in the Oval Office. 

What's new? But nothing will get done as usual. Bunch of barking dogs with no bite.

With his own Executive Order he may be hanging himself and his family.

Foreign agents could very well be enabled to fly into the United States and take him down inside the west wing in front of the entire nation; along with their black flag flying on the flagpole in the aftermath.

How'd that be for CNN headline news.

Obama IS a foreign agent! No foreign agents would want to kill him as that would strengthen the USA! Don't be fooled, no foreigners want their hero dead. He has hurt the USA more than any other person in history and most people we have helped hate us for the aid we sent to them.

YUP: President Trump Signs Great And Beautiful Trump Border Wall During Tour In San Diego

Embedded video

President Donald Trump visited the San Diego border on Wednesday to show off a newly constructed portion of the wall after a fundraising trip in California.

“It’s an amazing project,” Trump said, pointing to the 30-foot high barrier constructed with steel and concrete, noting that it also went six feet underground.

“If you think you’re going to cut it with a blow torch, that doesn’t work, because you hit the concrete, and then if you think you’re going to go through the concrete, that doesn’t work because we have very powerful rebar inside,” Trump said.

The president traveled via motorcade after a fundraiser to Otay Mesa, a community outside San Diego on the United States -Mexico border to review the latest constructed physical barrier.

He pointed out the new wall structure to the press, which was 24 miles of primary and secondary wall at the border.

“We have it covered underground, we have it covered overground,” Trump said.

The president was joined by acting Department of Homeland security Kevin McAllen and several other border security officials.

He said that over 44,000 bollard panels had been set up for the wall, which was then filled with concrete and rebar.

Trump admitted that he envisioned a solid concrete wall when he campaigned for president, but he was told by border officials that they preferred a wall constructed by concrete-filled bollards so they could see through it.

“It’s hardened concrete, very powerful concrete,” Trump said, pointing to the structure.

He added that the steel wall was designed to retain heat, making it harder to climb, plus having an anti-climbing system at the top.

“You can fry an egg on that wall,” he said. The president also acknowledged to reporters that he wanted the wall to be painted black and have spikes but said it was cheaper to let it remain naturally rust-colored.

“We can paint it later,” he said.

The president discussed his growing understanding of border barriers, noting that the Southern border would not need much more than 500 miles of wall to secure the border. He cited the existence of natural mountain and river barriers that prevented criminals from crossing. He did not rule out building additional barriers in the future but said it would depend on whether it was needed.

One border patrol agent spoke about the importance of the border wall to all of the agents, thanking the president for pushing forward on construction.

Trump said he met with Border Patrol prior to constructing the wall, picking the most effective structures to protect the border.

One border security official scoffed at the idea that the wall was a “vanity” project for the president.

“There’s a false narrative out there that this wall is the president’s vanity wall,” he said. “I’m here to tell you right now that that is false.”

He thanked Trump for listening to border patrol agents during the planning and construction process.

“You listened to the agents and you gave them exactly what they asked for,” he said.

One official with Trump confirmed that the structure was funded with regular Congressional appropriations in the FY 2017 and FY 2018 and that that the new wall replaced an inferior structure.

Trump said that he still considered the situation on the border a national emergency, but as more wall went up he could withdraw military forces.

“I hope you’re impressed,” he told reporters as he took questions about the project.

One worker told Trump of a tradition of workers signing the wall if they worked on the wall.

“I’ll sign it,” Trump said, and went to the wall and signed the steel barrier with a marker before encouraging other officials present to do the same.
