'Sounds Like Donald Trump': Kaltbaum Calls Out Obama's Immigration Views from 2005
Gary Kaltbaum reminded viewers of "Cavuto Live" of then-Sen. Barack Obama's views on illegal immigration, as critics of President Trump continue to lash out despite his signing of an executive order to keep migrant families together.
Kaltbaum, a Fox Business Network contributor, referenced a quote from Obama during a news conference on immigration reform in 2005.
"We simply cannot allow people to pour into the United States undetected, undocumented, unchecked and circumventing the line of people who are waiting patiently, diligently and lawfully to become immigrants in this country," Obama had said.
"He sounds like Donald Trump," Kaltbaum said Saturday.
The president signed an executive order on Wednesday allowing children to stay with their parents who were caught crossing the border illegally.
The move was in response to national outrage over children being separated from their families at the border.
"Throughout the years, a lot of Democrats have talked like [Trump] but when it comes down to doing something about it, [it] never, ever happens," Kaltbaum said.

Kaltbaum criticized politicians on both sides of the aisle for not having an outcome on the issue.
"There's still a huge problem on the border," he said.
The president has consistently blamed Democrats for the families becoming separated at the border, but he said that he wants to keep migrant families together while enforcing his "zero tolerance" policy.
