In the midst of an immigration crisis, the Obama administration is deflecting scrutiny by putting blame elsewhere. The latest example is Attorney General Eric Holder who claimed that “racial animus” is behind some of the opposition.

In a recent interview, Holder said, “It seems to me that this president has been treated differently than others. […] There’s a certain racial component to this for some people.”

Among those contradicting the race claim are people from President Obama’s former hometown of Chicago.

In a video by Rebel Pundit, one man said, “Do something for our children. Have the same love for these young people that you got for the ones across the border.”

Another man commented, “He will probably go down as the worst president ever elected.”

Today on The Five, Kimberly Guilfoyle called Holder’s statement “divisive” and said it reflects poorly on the president.

Greg Gutfeld noted that Holder made those comments in England, therefore fulfilling the “European assumptions about America. […] They love the idea of the redneck stereotype.”
