Our feckless leader is planning to deploy troops to our southern border. He has requested 1,200 National Guard troops and $500 million for "enhanced border protection and law enforcement." The Guard would be used to "provide intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance support," as well as support "counternarcotics enforcement" and provide "training capacity" until the Border Patrol can bring more officers on board. The additional funding would be used to improve border security technology and increase the number of agents, investigators and prosecutors targeting drug, human and weapons traffickers.
Translation? This minuscule number of troops will provide no additional security and is a pathetic political ploy to assuage public anger. Of course, Gabrielle Giffords the administration's quisling for Cochise County, Arizona praised the president. She needs to be gone in the next election.
As for the additional funds. They will be squandered like the other millions that have been spent on nonsense like the virtual fence that prevents virtually no one from invading us. The only thing that will save our sovereignty is deporting all the politicians out of Washington and replacing them with American patriots.
