AP cheered Obama's ridicule of Republicans for wanting to enforce existing immigration laws. He mocked his oppoenets, saying they "won't be happy until they get a moat with alligators along the border."
In Obama's racist campaign stop at the border, AP mentioned that he "declared it more secure than ever." The AP report repeated Obama's lie: "Obama boasted of increasing Border Patrol agents, nearing completion of a border fence and screening more cargo, among other steps."
Each claim is a lie. Obama said the border fence is "basically complete" but the truth is that it is only 5% finished. Obama claimed he increased border agents but the truth is that border agents are less effective under Obama as they detained less illegals than in previous years. That's because illegal crossing is rising but Obama only added 2,217 agents along the southern border.
Obama's divisive swipe at Republicans was obvious even to AP, but they seemed to forget about his angry swipe at Fox News:
President Barack Obama used an immigration speech Tuesday to take a jab at News Corporation CEO, Rupert Murdoch, who owns Fox News Channel.
Obama quoted the CEO, an Australian native, who said “Immigrants have made America great as the world leader in business, science, higher education and innovation.”
“That’s Rupert Murdoch, the owner of Fox News, and an immigrant himself,” Obama said. “I don’t know if you’re familiar with his views, but let’s just say he doesn’t have an Obama bumper sticker on his car.”
