    There was never any real hope for resolution – all we had was political posturing from BO.

    Kally,
    Sorry, you cannot blame BO’s disaster on the GOP’s efforts to stop BO’s damage. HHS does not NEED the GOP to do anything; they already can make the necessary changes. They won’t, because BO does not want them to.

    And it's time for Obama to start to at least look like he gives a (you know what). Seems that when there is any kind of crisis at hand, Obama is off fund raising, or giving campaign speeches. (As opposed to real policy speeches that would help set an agenda instead of just crying about the Republicans) Seems as if no one has ever taught our President about that kind of speech. After 2 elections he's yet to come off the campaign trail. Anybody informed him he won and now has to govern? Doesn't seem so.

    It is hard to blame HHS for not wanting to change the regulation with the climate the sue happy republicans have created. They stated from day one they wanted to make Obama fail and they have done everything in their power for 6 years to take sure no government business gets done if they can help it. It time for republicans to step up and do something or just sit back and stop complaining.

    We already have an answer.

    "Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, the author of the provision in the human trafficking law, said a change in regulations, not the law, could speed the children's return.

    The law already allows HHS and the Homeland Security Department to write regulations to deal with "exceptional circumstances" that would allow officials to return the children more quickly to their home countries, Feinstein said Thursday at a hearing on a $3.7 billion emergency budget request from the White House to deal with the growing crisis on the border."

    We need to make sure that this never happens again. Amnesty should be avoided at all costs.

    Our commander finds it more important to defend Ukraine's border with sanctions on Russia.

    Why not stop the fund raising and sanction Mexico?
