Border states want National Guard deployed.

Border states want National Guard deployed.

Many congressional representatives from states bordering Mexico have written a letter to the president requesting the National Guard be stationed on the border. With violence on the rise on the border, this seems to be a reasonable request. This is from Barbara Hollingsworth at http://www.washingtonexaminer.com.

Seventeen members of Congress representing southwestern states sent a letter to President Obama today requesting that the commander-in-chief immediately deploy the National Guard along the Mexican border. Because the governors of Arizona and Texas have already requested it, they say, no legislation is required. The president “could do it today,” Rep. Ted Poe, R-TX, pointed out.

The signatories are also asking President Obama to specify new rules of engagement. National Guard troops “should be able to defend themselves if fired upon,” Poe told reporters at a press conference outside the Capitol. “In the first two months of this year, attacks on the Border Patrol in the Tuscon Sector have increased 200 percent. This country does more to protect the borders of other nations than we do to protect our own borders.”

The congressmen and women don’t think the Guard should be 50 miles back like they were the last time they were deployed because the violence on the border has increased. Additionally, the Guard was unarmed and only served as a backup for Border Patrol Agents.

…Recent increases in Border Patrol agents and other enforcement improvements are not enough, (Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-AZ) told reporters.  “Last year, 240,000 individuals were apprehended” in Arizona – and those were just the ones that got caught.

Rep. Poe showed reporters photos of a Russian-made Mexican military helicopter that had ventured over the U.S. border and a Border Patrol vehicle retrofitted with wire cages to protect agents inside from rock-throwing illegals. “If somebody in D.C. started throwing rocks at the local police, they would go to jail,” Poe said. When illegal immigrants do it, they go on welfare.

How does Mexico treat illegals?

As Mexican President Filipe Calderon says Arizona’s new law opens the door “to intolerance, hate, discrimination, and abuse in law enforcement,” he conveniently neglects to say how Mexico treats those who enter their country illegally. This can’t be hypocrisy, can it? Nah!! Here are just a few of the rules as documented by Michelle Malkin.

If outsiders do not enhance the country’s “economic or national interests” or are “not found to be physically or mentally healthy,” they are not welcome. Neither are those who show “contempt against national sovereignty or security.” They must not be economic burdens on society and must have clean criminal histories. Those seeking to obtain Mexican citizenship must show a birth certificate, provide a bank statement proving economic independence, pass an exam, and prove they can provide their own health care.

Illegal entry into the country is equivalent to a felony punishable by two years’ imprisonment. Document fraud is subject to fine and imprisonment; so is alien marriage fraud. Evading deportation is a serious crime; illegal re-entry after deportation is punishable by ten years’ imprisonment. Foreigners may be kicked out of the country without due process…

Law-enforcement officials at all levels — by national mandate — must cooperate to enforce immigration laws, including illegal-alien arrests and deportations. The Mexican military is also required to assist in immigration-enforcement operations. Native-born Mexicans are empowered to make citizens’ arrests of illegal aliens and turn them in to authorities.

If you’re a foreigner, you must have proper documentation too. Oh, no!! Show me your papers!! Could this be considered “intolerance, hate, discrimination, and abuse in law enforcement?” Please go and read the rest of Malkin’s devastating list of Mexico’s laws and practices. Who is defending their country? Mexico or Obama’s America? Barack Obama is not doing the job he was hired to do: defend this country from alien invaders.

  1. It seems that old Uncle Sapp always is to blame for the world’s problems. Put the National Guard and if necessary bring our troops home from Europe and Asia. We have 30000 troops in Korea that are not welcome, we have troops on Okinawa that are not welcome. I say to the rest of the worold ” GO TO HELL!!” we will take care of ourselves, you take care of yourselves!!

  2. You know, Bob, if Obama actually sent the Guard to the border, he would probably no longer have an issue. He wants the issue so he can get his “comprehensive immigration reform.” He cares nothing about what Americans want. He wants to transform the country, and he can’t let some chaos in the border states get in the way of that.

    • He had better hurry Debbie, November is coming soon and then President Ovomit will loose his tall.

  3. It can’t get here soon enough.
