“We have gone above and beyond what was requested by the very Republicans who said they supported broader reform as long as we got serious about enforcement. But even though we’ve answered these concerns, I gotta say I suspect there are still going to be some who are trying to move the goal posts on us one more time. Maybe they’ll need a moat. Maybe they’ll want alligators in the moat.“
– President Obama, 10 May 2011 in El Paso TX, on immigration reform and the Republicans.
