Obama Supports Secure Borders

By Jon Feere and Jon Feere on July 7, 2009

President Obama has just affirmed his absolute support for secure borders:

"State sovereignty must be a cornerstone of international order," said Mr Obama.

"Just as all states should have the right to choose their leaders, states must have the right to borders that are secure, and to their own foreign policies.

"Any system that cedes those rights will lead to anarchy. That is why this principle must apply to all nations—including Georgia and Ukraine."

As the last sentence indicates, the president’s words were aimed at Russia. But this is powerful language that must be reiterated if and when the president begins pushing illegal alien amnesty. Obama cannot back peddle from this statement without losing credibility on both an international and national scale.

Time will tell if Obama’s a man of his words.
