For President Barack Obama, the humanitarian crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border is increasingly becoming a political liability, giving Republicans a fresh opportunity to question his administration's competence and complicating the debate over the nation's tangled immigration laws.Obama's decision to skip a border visit is likely to provide more material for the Republicans and handful of Democrats who say the president hasn't responded quickly and forcefully enough to the mounting crisis.Obama spokesman Josh Earnest said the White House wasn't worried about the scene of the president traveling to Texas without visiting the border.
