MSNBC’s Chris Hayes: More Border Security Could ‘Make the Crisis Even Worse’

‘The border has never been more secured than it is now’

MSNBC Logic from Chris Hayes: More Border Security Could ‘Make the Crisis Even Worse’ (NewsBusters)

In his defense of President Obama last night, MSNBC’s Chris Hayes made the bizarre case that too much security is the real problem at the border. The All In host used his opening segment on the July 9 edition of the program to hammer Republicans for their critique of the President's response to the border crisis.

Hayes first cited a few liberal talking points arguing that Obama really is tough on immigration. He contended that “the border has never been more secured than it is now. In some ways, the humanitarian crisis along the southwest border is actually a result of that security.”
