John McCain’s challenger for the GOP Senate nod in Arizona, former Congressman and talk show host J.D. Hayworth, tells “Face the Nation that the Obama administration is for open borders and wants “no enforcement” of immigration law.

“It should come as no surprise that any number of people who advocate open borders and advocate no enforcement of the law, including this current administration, are trying to throw up these roadblocks,” Hayworth said on the CBS program “Face the Nation.”

Hayworth was defending Arizona’s harsh anti-immigration law.  Is Hayworth talking about the same administration that just requested $600 million for border security including 1000 more border patrol agents?

Of the requested $600 million, $297 million would go toward the new Border Patrol agents, $52.5 million would go toward 160 new Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents, and $37 million would pay for two unmanned aircraft, according to amendments enclosed with Obama’s letter. The money also would go toward 30 new Customs and Border Protection officers and 20 new canine teams.

The Border Patrol currently has 20,000 agents, double the amount it had in 2004, according to the Department of Homeland Security. More than 17,000 of those agents are on the Southwest border.
