OBAMA SENDS GUARD TO BORDER: CAN’T ENFORCE IMMIGRATION
We talked about the politics behind Obama’s decision to send 1,200 temporary troops to the border just two days ago. All predictions have come true.
Last week President Calderón, in a meeting before Congress, demanded that the US not interfere with Mexican illegals crossing our border. Consistent with that request Obama is sending the National Guard to the border without the ability to enforce immigration laws.
State Department spokesman Crowley: “It’s not about immigration … fully consistent with our efforts to do our part to stem, you know, violence, to interdict the flow of dangerous people and dangerous goods, drugs, guns, people.”
Arizona’s never ending frontpage immigration story forced Obama to take some type of action in order to keep his immigration bill alive.
AP: “The National Guard troops will work on intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance support, analysis and training, and support efforts to block drug trafficking. They will temporarily supplement Border Patrol agents until Customs and Border Protection can recruit and train additional officers and agents to serve on the border, according to a letter Tuesday from top administration security officials to Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl Levin.”
Meanwhile back at the ranch Holder ponders a suit against Arizona claiming their law (based on federal statute) is unconstitutional. He claims it violates federal authority over immigration. Check the nationality of the illegals, they are not just Mexicans. Nobody is focusing on how many are coming in from terrorist countries such as Iran.
The goal is federal action, ultimately government control. Mexican illegals are targeted to fill a much needed progressive voting sector. Even so, taxpayers are burdened to make this happen, these people must have ObamaCare, education, unemployment… Even worse, terrorists are entering America as well.
