Just the facts

Dear Editor:

I came across your newspaper recently and on page 7 found "Dispatch," a page dedicated to "letters, blog posts, comments and updates." Thankfully the word "facts" wasn't included. For if it had been, the letter written by Ed Konecnik would have burst into flames upon being printed.

Konecnik continually blames Obama, liberals and Democrats for all of society's ills. Today it's the border crisis.

Fact: more people have been deported under Obama than under Bush. Fact: President Obama is going to leave the White House having deported more immigrants than any other president in history!

Yet Republicans continue to say that Obama is doing nothing about the border problem. Well, that's just repurposed bovine waste. Here is another fact (look up the meaning Konecnik): Obama asked for $3.7 billion to address the border crisis, John Boehner trimmed that to $1.5, but the GOP-led House Appropriations Committee cut it even further to $659 million. And then the GOP cancelled the vote!

Wow, just when Congress (GOP) was so close to the "appearance" of doing "something." How sad. Boehner released a statement after he yanked the bill, stating "there are numerous steps the president can and should be taking right now, without the need for congressional action."

Is John Boehner suggesting that if Congress won't act to change a law it doesn't like, the president should? Because there's a person who is suing the president for doing just that right now! His name is John Boehner.

Republicans will not concede that everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but not their own facts.
