Democratic congressman, Republican mayor agree Obama to blame for current border crisis

Will either party listen? Will this lawless President?
NewsBusters: It must have seemed to Candy Crowley like a surefire way to inspire a spirited debate by inviting both Democrat Congressman Henry Cuellar of Laredo, Texas and Mayor Alan Long of Murrieta, California to appear together on today's State of the Union on CNN to discuss the border crises. Well, to Candy's great surprise (and probably costernation) they both pretty much agreed about the situation and placed the blame on the Obama administration.

The biggest surprise to Crowley must have been the response of Congressman Cuellar as you can see in this video (and after the jump) making the point not just once but twice about the poor response of the Obama administration. As he is making his points, Mayor Long can be heard agreeing with him as Crowley noted.

CNN: The Obama administration is facing fresh criticism for its handling of the immigration crisis from two voices at the center of the debate.

Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-Texas, and Mayor Alan Long of Murrieta, California - the small town that rose up in protest after federal officials bused illegal immigrants to a facility there - both criticized the administration for failing to fix a broken system and address what they called a foreseeable problem.
BTW, the $2 billion Obama's requesting to clean up his border debacle, yeah, that's now nearly doubled, vaulting to the tune of $3.7 billion!
