    New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg was there. So was Al Sharpton and AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka. Not on the invitation list? Any active governor from any border state.

    Which is odd since the meeting held yesterday at the White House was titled: President’s Meeting with Stakeholders on Fixing the Broken Immigration System.

    Are the active governors of our nation’s border states not “stakeholders” in our “broken immigration system”? Not for this White House. From day one, the Obama administration has sought to undermine state law enforcement cooperation and authority over illegal immigration.

    Within months of taking office, the Department of Homeland Security weakened the 287(g) program that President bill Clinton created in 1996 to increase cooperation on border enforcement between federal and local law enforcement. Since then the Department of Justice has gone to war with Arizona over their law enforcement efforts instead of working with them.

    He gets a mayor from a border state but not the governor?

    That's weird.

    Sure we are. But those candians are just here to use our better health care, then they go home.

    I looked at the guest list linked and it appeared to be more geared at the municipal level.

    No it's not. It's clearly political. The progressive/democrat governors of border states would not tow his commie line on the issue so he could not invite them. Barry does not deal well with dissent - not that that is unusual for the left.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

    Stakeholders = Democrats who support the nanny state that the illegals want to live in, and will vote for if they "fix" the "problem".

    Broken = The illegals can't legally vote for them YET!
