White House press secretary Josh Earnest said that the crisis of unaccompanied minors at the southern border is over “for now” on Friday.
Earnest cautioned that “these numbers are very volatile,” and pointed out that the hotter summer weather is part of the reason for the decrease in unaccompanied minors, but credited actions taken by the Obama administration for the reduction in unaccompanied minors at the border, saying, “There is no doubt that the administration has made a substantial contribution to the reduction in those numbers.”
He also blamed House Republicans for being “engaged in a pretty coordinated effort to prevent … resources [for the border] from being provided.” by Ian Hanchett at breitbart.com

Let’s take a look at these latest comments from the White House. Press secretary Josh Earnest is the spokesperson for Obama. This is Obama speaking.
“The crisis of unaccompanied minors at the southern border is over “for now” – 1) No, he didn’t say that did he? Children at the border is only part of the problem. There are teens in gangs, there are cartel members and now reports and warnings have been issued that the ISIS are in the area, making threats of crossing into U.S. to inflict car bombings and terror; they claim to be in our cities.
“these numbers are very volatile,” and as Ian Hanchett states Earnest pointed out that the hotter summer weather is part of the reason for the decrease in unaccompanied minors” – 2) Are you kidding me? These minors are from Mexico, Central and South America, they are accustomed to hot weather. That is a pretty lame search for justifying a ridiculous comment. It gets even better!
“There is no doubt that the administration has made a substantial contribution to the reduction in those numbers.” 3) What contribution? Obama has gone nowhere near the border, has taken absolutely no action. Remember, he (Obama) was going to address the border later this summer.
No crisis for now? This following the reports and warnings of traveling below the border due to the believed presence of ISIS members, along with threats against the U.S. Good to know everything is looking good to Obama on the southern border. It must be just as he had hoped.
This comes from the White House after Obama’s “We don’t have a strategy” statement. That America is an admission of stupidity.
