In an effort to deflect responsibility for the current unaccompanied child border crisis, President Obama has tried to lay the blame at the feet of the House Republicans for not passing the so-called "comprehensive" immigration reform bill. However, apparently, Americans aren't buying the latest Obama blame-game tactic (as noted by the results of the latest Gallup poll):
By more than two-to-one, they are critical of the President for his handling of immigration; with a 4-year high in those disapproving of his actions or inaction; depending on your particular political viewpoint. There's a problem with this poll. It really doesn't tell us if people are upset with the President for not taking more action by executive order or for not working with Congress. But, the sudden jump in his disapproval rating from 55% to 65% does seem to track with the current parent-less child entries from Central America. For that reason, I think it seems to indicate that Americans feel that, once again, the fault lies with Obama.
