Former President Barack Obama says Republicans sowed divisions in US

Former President Barack Obama pushed back on Republicans attempts to take credit for recent economic strength during a speech Monday.

"We simply can not allow people to pour into the USA, undetected, undocumented, unchecked and circumventing the line of people who are waiting patiently, diligently, lawfully to become immigrants in this country" he concluded.

Democrats weren't likely to appreciate the newfound comity though, as Mr. Trump was largely trolling them and/or pointing out how far the Democratic Party has changed on the issue of immigration.

Obama never mentioned Trump by name, but encouraged the crowd to "believe in facts" and accused Republicans of giving tax cuts to "folks who are already sitting pretty".

This assertion Obama made at a rally of supporters of the Democratic get together in Las Vegas.

It is a question that can not be answered because no one has even mentioned it", the vice president told SER Catalunya . However, various reports in Spain claim that the Brazilian is keen to play for the Catalan giants next season.

There was "no proof of anything", Trump said when pressed over his statements that people from the Middle East are among those traveling in the migrant caravan before adding that "there very well could be".

"I do think it's interesting, I just hope people notice that every time there's a pattern where they run things into the ground and we have to come back and clean things up", he said. "A total mess! They only wish they had that decision to make over again", Trump said. "We certainly do not want any more coming in".

According to a video clip posted earlier this year on the Republican National Committee website, President Bill Clinton denounced illegal immigration in his 1995 State of the Union address, even using the now-verboten term "illegal aliens".

In today's polarized political climate, finding a bipartisan agreement on illegal immigration becomes harder and harder.

The 66-year-old retired cabinet maker volunteered to canvass neighborhoods for Democrats in July after deciding "there's gotta be something more to life than sitting around on my ass all day watching CNN and getting upset at what's going on around the country". "One need not be a partisan or a cynic to believe that the term "undocumented Democrat" is not merely a conservative epithet but in fact exactly the way Chuck Schumer and other Democratic leaders look on illegal immigrants in the USA today".
