Poll: Majority of Latinos Disapprove Of How Obama Is Handling Border Crisis

Poll: Majority of Latinos Disapprove Of How Obama Is Handling Border Crisis

A new Washington Post-ABC News poll finds widespread public disapproval of the way President Obama and Republicans in Congress are handling the influx of unaccompanied foreign children at the southern border as the two sides engage in a fierce debate over how to stem the crisis.

Nearly 6 out of 10 Americans are not happy with Obama’s performance in dealing with the tens of thousands of minors who have arrived from Central America in recent months, overwhelming Border Patrol stations. All told, 58 percent disapprove of his management on the issue, including 54 percent of Latinos.

The findings represent a political blow for a president who called immigration reform a top second-term priority when he was reelected two years ago with 71 percent support from Latino voters.

Nobody likes lawlessness and the sight of chaos with nobody at the wheel. Which is what our country got with Obama.

Hispanics were polled a few weeks ago and considered themselves to be white racially. Blacks are no longer the # 1 minority... WE THE PEOPLE vote back the SENATE in only 110 more days!
AG Holder realizes this as does Caesar ObaMao and his Baracksheviks...

This is working out fantastic for Democrats. Not only is the lame duck president getting blamed for the crisis but they've managed to shift the blame on Republicans in congress.

Obama taking the heat is irrelevant to them as he's done in 2 years but transferring the blame to House Republicans is priceless to them. They created the mess but have been revealed of responsibility as Americans are too stupid to wake up and smell the coffee.

obama is a major cause of the illegal flood. I think he did it purposely. It sure does remove a lot of political heat from his other crises's. The Repubs are just too cowardly to use the tools at their disposal to unseat obama. Look for more crises's in the following two years.
