President Obama “checks out” on immigration and border-control issues, Charles Krauthammer says, because he simply doesn’t know what to do.
“We have a crisis at the border. He does nothing for a couple of weeks. And then last week he comes out [to make a statement]. So what is his statement? The first three-quarters of it is an attack on Republicans,” Krauthammer said on Wednesday’s Special Report. But, he explained, it’s Obama’s policies “of loosening the deportation of people who came here as children” that are encouraging the current influx of young children.
In September, the president said he’d work with his attorney general and the homeland-security secretary on ways to fix border security. “He announces, as president, that they’re now going to collect ideas as the crisis is happening?” Krauthaummer asked.
“He is lost on these issues, lost on the issues abroad, doesn’t know what to do — and thus, he goes out and plays golf,” Krauthammer concluded.
