"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," Obama said. "But even though we've answered these concerns, I gotta say I suspect there are still going to be some who are trying to move the goal posts on us one more time."
"Maybe they'll need a moat," he said mockingly to laughter from the crowd. "Maybe they'll want alligators in the moat."
"The question is whether those in Congress who previously walked away in the name of enforcement are now ready to come back to the table and finish the work we've started," he said.
Obama also tailored his argument to the times, making his case for immigration reform in newly sharpened economic terms. He argued that the middle class would benefit from bringing illegal immigrants out of an underground economy and drawing on the abilities of immigrants educated in American universities.

Wonder what the family of this man thinks of Obama's joking about a serious issue?
Or what about this federal agent?
Or how about this girl who at 14 was raped by illegal immigrants? Yeah, it is really so funny. Such a big joke, isn't it Mr. Obama? Tell that to the families and parents.
To the PhotoOper in Chief, it is all one big joke. He can't be bothered to take this seriously. He has brackets to fill out, golf to play, and campaign cash to get. After all, he has to pay for all of Michelle's tamales. Oh wait, that is us, the taxpayers.
