Alligators In The Moat? 'I'm Game', Says Congressman

By Eric Scheiner | May 13, 2011 | 9:31am EDT

( - Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) has made a video to go along with a letter to President Obama, in which Walsh expresses his concern over the president’s recent comments on immigration.

“For years President Obama has said he is serious about dealing with America’s immigration issues, however, yesterday [in a speech in El Paso, Texas] he reinforced the idea that he’s not taking the issue seriously by suggesting that the only way to make Republicans happy on the subject is to build ‘a moat’.

“Time and time again, President Obama has proven that he’s more concerned with photo-ops with Hollywood movie stars, than real citizens who live on the border and have to deal with America’s exploding immigration crisis,” Walsh said in a news release. 

 “Border security is national security. It’s not a joking matter. Enforcing our immigration laws and holding businesses accountable for hiring illegal immigrants is a serious issue. For that reason, I have sent the President a letter, questioning his commitment to securing our borders."

In the letter, Walsh urges Obama to get serious about the issue of illegal immigration, “If it takes moats and alligators to secure our borders to get you to be serious – I’m game.”

In addition to the letter, Rep. Walsh's office has made a video and posted it on the congressman's YouTube channel.
