Thank God that great prognosticator and policy wonk Harry Reid has ended the confusion. Thank God we now have Harry’s word that the border is secure. If I hadn’t gotten that information from ‘Gospel Truth Harry’, I’d probably pay more attention to this article:

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) – Connecticut officials have rejected a federal request to temporarily house up to 2,000 immigrant children from Central America at a mostly-vacant facility built for developmentally disabled adults.

The Republican-American reports the New England office of the U.S. General Services Administration has inquired about leasing space at the Southbury Training School.

I’ve got a suggestion for Sen. Reid and the Obama administration. Since the USGSA is checking into renting facilities, why don’t they just keep this in house? According to their website, they manage over 9,600 properties nationwide.

Since this is a mess of the federal government’s making, specifically of this administration’s making, let’s house these children right there in the nation’s capitol. Let’s let these children see the nation’s capitol. Let’s let them visit Capitol Hill. Let’s let them attend a Harry Reid press availability. Let’s have the entire First Family visit them on one of their days of service, like they usually do each Thanksgiving.

As usual, Washington, DC is behind the curve:

“Right now it’s looking like we’ll have a little more than 300 protest rallies large and small across the country. Our goal is to unify Americans of all races, political parties and walks of life against the Obama-inspired illegal immigrant invasion,” Gheen said. “At last count we had 257 communities signed up, but that was two hours ago. We’re expecting more than 300 and updating the event list every two hours.”

Here’s a couple questions I wish the DC press had the cajones to ask Sen. Reid on camera:

  1. Sen. Reid, if the border is secure, why is this protest growing by the minute?
  2. Sen. Reid, if the border is secure, why is the USGSA looking into renting space in states all across the country to house these immigrants?

The truth is that the border isn’t secure. The truth is that Democrats don’t want it secured. Think that’s a little harsh? Check out this exchange between Charles Krauthammer and Kirsten Powers:

It’s time for Democrats to stop lying to the American people. It’s time Democrats stopped telling us that the Tex-Mex border is secure while TV reports run articles about how people are protesting the dumping of illegal aliens into their citiess. Democrat should stop lying about the border being secure while a nationwide rally is being planned to protest the Democrats’ open border policies.

It’s sickening that the Democrats think we’re that stupid. It’s sickening that Harry Reid has spent the last year or more lying to us about one thing or another. The Democrats’ lying must stop immediately.
