Obama official: "Our border is not open to illegal migration"

President Obama sent a top surrogate, his Homeland Security Secretary to the U.S.-Mexico border to survey the situation for himself - a stop that many on both sides of the political aisle say the President should be making.

The meme says, "Hey girl. I'm not interested in photo ops." And the tweet from HouseGOP said, "A picture says a thousand words."
