Fox News legal commentator Jeanine Pirro said over the weekend that President Barack Obama is deliberately using the immigration crisis to "change the demographics" of the country, Mediaite reported.

Pirro charged on her weekend show that the White House had enough warning to anticipate that thousands of children would illegally cross the border but downplayed their impending arrival because immigration reform legislation in Congress would have been politically harder to pursue.

It has been Pirro's longstanding position that the administration wants immigration reform because once eligible to vote, the new citizens will swing toward the Democrats.

"Over the past two years, multiple warning signs were conveyed to the Obama administration," she said. "Studies they funded concerning the coming surge and Customs and Border Patrol as well as ICE agents were ringing alarm bells. The White House was involved, two years ago, in efforts to care for these kids when they negotiated the temporary shelter at Lackland Air Force Base in Texas. So why, you say, would the Obama administration not prepare and plan and warn us two years ago? Why?"

Pirro replayed a clip from an earlier program to answer the question: "I draw but one conclusion: Barack Obama is intentionally using the immigration crisis as an excuse to change the demographics and ultimately the electorate of this nation."

Pirro was elected as a Westchester County Court judge in 1990, according to her Fox News biography. She was the GOP candidate for New York state attorney general in 2006, losing to Andrew Cuomo. Cuomo is now governor of the state.
