Rep. Tim Huelskamp, R-Kan., recently mocked President Barack Obama's border security efforts and made a sex joke about former President Bill Clinton.
According to TalkingPointsMemo.com, Huelskamp tweeted on Wednesday: “Most House Rs agree w/ most Senate Rs and Americans. Trusting Obama w/ border security is like trusting Bill Clinton w/ your daughter #tcot.”
Huelskamp made the same type of comment in June: “Letting this administration define border security is like letting Bill Clinton define sexual relations.”
The GOP congressman's suggestion that Obama cannot be trusted with border security was debunked by MediaMatters.org on July 3:
The Obama administration has deported a record number of undocumented immigrants, which has angered immigrants rights' activists who argue that the rise in deportations has impacted families of those deported. In FY 2012, deportations totaled 409,849 - the highest they've ever been.
Since FY 2001, the U.S. Border Patrol has steadily increased its number of agents from 9,821 agents nationwide -- the bulk of whom (93 percent) were stationed on the Southwestern border -- to more than double today at 21,395 agents. Eighty-six percent of those agents today are located on the Southwestern border.
According to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement data provided to the Immigration Policy Center, there is a record number of ICE agents in the field tasked with enforcement and removal operations.
“I made a comment kind of offhand that trusting Barack Obama with border security was like trusting my daughter with Bill Clinton,” Huelskamp later told NBC News (video below). “We just don’t trust him!”
