Oh, god, I forgot about this... (short thread)

"In Obama’s first term, Republicans issued a challenge to the White House: increasing border security would open the door to a bipartisan reform package. Obama accepted the offer at face value and increased border security...
"With this in mind, Obama traveled to El Paso in May 2011, where he said, 'We have gone above and beyond what was requested by the very Republicans who said they supported broader reform as long as we got serious about enforcement. All the stuff they asked for, we’ve done.'...
"Obama added, however, that GOP officials were complaining anyway. 'Maybe they’ll need a moat,' he said to laughter. 'Maybe they want alligators in the moat. They’ll never be satisfied'.”
