Border Troops NOT Going To Be Used To Catch Illegals -We Are All Charlie Brown Now

All those troops coming to the Arizona border…..they are not going to be used to catch illegals. LLPOF.

US National Guard troops being sent to the Mexican border will be used to stem the flow of guns and drugs across the frontier and not to enforce US immigration laws, the State Department said Wednesday.

The clarification came after the Mexican government urged Washington not to use the additional troops to go after illegal immigrants.

President Barack Obama on Tuesday authorized the deployment of up to 1,200 additional troops to border areas but State Department spokesman Philip Crowley told reporters, “It’s not about immigration.

He said the move was “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.”

He said the extra troops would be used to free up civilians engaged in support functions so that law enforcement personnel can be increased along the 2,000-mile-long (3,200 kilometer) border.

Suckered again.  We are all Cahrlie Brown now…

    how much you want to bet that they will use this as an excuse to disarm AZ state forces and certainly militia groups such as the Minutemen?

    Obama is the worst thing to ever happen to the United States.

  2. Stephen Kohut says

    If anyone expected anything differnt from Obama and Jayno they need to adjust theier meds.

  3. What are you whining Dude and Kohut?
    SB1070 was written and passed to protect us, the American Citizen from criminal assassin killing our Ranchers on the border and not for controlling traffic and looking for burned out tail lights and cracked wind shields in Guadalupe or El Mirage.
    It is just like Governor Brewer said, her signing the bill (1070) made Washington pay attention; and like the good Senator McCain opined 1200 troops is not enough but is a good start.
    As to your bet Dude, I raise it by a hundred, that is if you can find an honest man to hold the bank. I don’t know if you find one on this Blog, but we can ask Tony Goprano, I’m sure he would acquiesce.

    Stephen,

    Will that Obamacare med list be submitted to the approval of a committee of Washington bureaucrats to be named later?

  5. SO, the excuse is that National Guard troops will take the DESK JOBS so that local law enforcement can be on the front line.

    Isn’t this ass-backwards? Isn’t local law enforcement supposed to be focused on controlling traffic, family disputes, the usual local policing stuff, while the NATIONAL Guard is to be the barrier between North and South at the international border, from CA thru AZ, NM and Texas?

    To add to the White House Democrat idiocy, this is like Nigeria law enforcement. Everyone in the country knows the Nigerian police are given only ONE bullet for their guns, because the government regime is worried with two bullets they might have enough to revolt, leaving the police at the mercy of the AK-47 armed gangs. Contrary to the “desk job” scenario, our National Guard is, according to MExico’s Calderon is to be confronting ONLY the drug and gun runners, NOT the illegals … which is stupid since they are ALL illegals … confronting the MOST brutal and DANGEROUS of the human flow across the border with a helpful BIG heads up for the drug cartels from the Commander-in-Chief POTUS himself that our troops will be UNARMED. Hello? Who’s side is he on? What kind of commander advertizes to the enemy his troop weaknesses?

    This also dangerously evokes the failed UN Peacekeeper model. For a long time, the mere presence of armed UN Peacekeepers driving about was sufficient to deter bad guys, but Sierra Leone rebel, slaughtering arm-chopper, Foday Sanko proved that it was all ineffectual posing when he surrounded and captured 500 UN troops and held them hostage. Rwandan Hutus extremists made quite a number of brutal calculations in how they were going to neutralize the UN Peacekeepers to get all international military presence out of Rwanda so they could massacre unimpeded. The UN ordered their Belgium peacekeepers to surrender when the Hutus confronetd them at the Rwandan Prime Minister’s house, the Belgiums obeyed, were disarmed and brutally murdered. The Prime MInister was shot dead in her house.

    That’s how the Left fights, surrendering to “avoid provocation” with lots and lots of 100% unnecessary casualities and huge loss of life.

    So, what is Obama doing? Moving LIVE BAIT into the zone?

    Horst,

    I swear RINOs are getting dumber by the day. Obama and Napolitano are not going to do anything meaningful or effective because they, like McAmnesty, want open borders. Might as well assign 1200 Guardsmen to polishing ICE trucks along the Canadian border for all the good this does. Obama’s move, just like McAmnesty’s dance to the right, is for appearance and not substance.

    McAmnesty has promoted open borders and amnesty all his political career. According to McAmnesty these are not illegal aliens, these are “God’s children.” I’m sure Rob Krentz’s family and friends agree with John’s position. The political winds shifted badly against McAmnesty and the open borders crowd. He wants everyone to forget his hard push for McCain-Kennedy. Sorry, that is a no sale.

    I can hear McAmnesty channelling Capt. Renault in Casablanca now. “I’m shocked, shocked that there is illegal immigration going on here!” Pathetic.

  7. isnt this exactly what the guards job was under Bush when he deployed 6000 to the border in 06? This is just following precedent.. Did anyone think Obama would be more conservative than Bush on any issue? Lets be real people

    …………

    No. It was a given that Obama and the Democrats would totally screw up, because 1) they don’t know how to fight
    2) they don’t know the correct uses of the military
    3) they are all lawyers so they’ve been trained to talk talk inside four cloistered walls
    4) they have a political vested interest in “benign neglect.”

    Bush is history. His border policy makes bad precedent, and there are plenty of on the record analysis for anyone following him to avoid that approach, but … here we are. It LOOKS like Bush’s precedent, as cover, but with LESS sense of national security and American national interests. Bush has always come down on the side of the USA, but Obama walks off and has Mexican President Calderon informing the American People as to the comportment and marching orders of OUR troops.

    WTF???

  9. Only a Horst would fall for and believe in McCain’s election year conversion to immigration law enforcement at any level!

    But that’s okay, after Aug 24th “The John” will qualify as a permanent guest at Horst’s camp.

    Along with Arlen, DeeDee Scuzzofova, Carolyn Allen, Meg Whitman and Carly Fiorina.

    Rino hunting season will give Horsts candidates plenty of spare time to savor his hospitality while lining his pockets!

    Horst? Pockets? He ownes a nudist camp, what pockets?

    Man-purse?

    Let me get this straight. The PRESIDENT OF MEXICO makes a fuss, and we bend and kiss his rear, explaining that we are sending 1200 “troops” to the border to do desk jobs, focusing on drugs, gun smuggling INTO Mexico, and basically everything they can do EXCEPT deal with the illegals?

    Does the world need any more proof that Obama’s first loyalty is not to the United States of America, but rather to some sort of nebulous global worldview where America is the source of all evil and Obama is trying to weaken it from within?

  12. Stephen Kohut says

    And if this was important to “Arizona’s last line of defense” the borders would have been sealed 28 years ago.

    I have been watching this border situation for some years now having lived in Cochise county for the last 15 years, my wife and I moved to Phoenix in part to get a bit farther away from the border after suffering an atempted home invasion, as well as a carjacking by mex nationals. neither turned out well for the mexicans. The situation with our border with mexico has been a problem for over 100 yrs! That country has always been a sewer and the government has always been corrupt! this will never change! That is why they are invading us to begin with! And yes, it is an invasion! mixed in among the thousands of mexicans that are flooding in every week are, what is refered to as “OTM’s” other than mexicans, Among these OTM’s are many Muslim Terrorists! Mexico is helping them! this is a known fact! and it has to stop and I mean now! A country is only as strong as it’s borders, and our border is weak! We do more to shore up other countries borders than we do our own! Whether Obamma or his cronies want to see it or not, War has been declared on us by Mexico thru this “Silent Invasion” if you doubt the varacity of this statement, look up “Reconquista” or “Aztlans” agendas! We need to cease all trade with mexico now!, We need to blockade the Gulf of Mexico now! We need to send a clear message to Mexico that if they don’t clean up their country and fall in with a basic human rights style of government, We will do it for them! We have beaten them before and we can beat them again! they have no Navy to speak of, Their Army, for the most part is controled by the cartels, And if the UN complains??? Tell them to kiss our Red, White and Blue Butts!
