    Exclusive: Obama Blames Border Crisis for Immigration Reform Delay

    If liberals and democrats believe these lies they are even stupider thain I thought they were and are so gullible I should sell the prime everglades land

    The reason Obama is not doing immigration is the election and he bold face lies and denies that. Obama does not care about the right thing for the election he cares about the election and holding the senate

    Exclusive: Obama Blames Border Crisis for Immigration Reform Delay - NBC News

    In an exclusive interview with Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd, President Barack Obama defended his decision to delay executive action on immigration, saying the summer’s surge of unaccompanied children at the Mexican border changed the politics of the issue.

    “The truth of the matter is that the politics did shift midsummer because of that problem,” Obama said in the interview, which will air on Sunday’s Meet the Press on NBC. “I want to spend some time, even as we're getting all our ducks in a row for the executive action, I also want to make sure that the public understands why we're doing this, why it's the right thing for the American people, why it's the right thing for the American economy.”

    Watch the full interview Sunday on NBC’s Meet the Press, Todd’s debut as moderator of the longest-running show on network television. NBCNews.com will live stream the show at 9 a.m. ET.

    In the sit-down with Todd, Obama rejected criticism that the postponement is merely a political tactic intended to help embattled Democrats in the months before contentious midterm elections, saying that the delay will help make new immigration policies “sustainable” when they are announced later this year.

    “What I'm saying is that I'm going to act because it's the right thing for the country,” he said. “But it's going to be more sustainable and more effective if the public understands what the facts are on immigration, what we've done on unaccompanied children, and why it's necessary.”

    Maybe President Obama told the Mexprez that he'll "have more flexibility" after the election.

    Or has he already used that one?

    Republicans should be happy about this. If they go on to win this election, Obama will be forced to act in defiance of that mandate, IF he does.

    Of course it's all politics, but there's something to be said about how the president had the option of going it alone and decided not to until the people have had their say.

    No matter the context, it's better than yet another independent exercise of contrived executive power.
