    I don't like this. I want a wall. THis is a temporary pr stunt. Plus, part of me feels they're just going to guarantee safe passage and keep the minutemen in line.

    US troops deployed on American soil...A violation of <i>posse comitatus</i>. Fine employers $10,000 a pop for every illegal they hire and they'll soon stop. No jobs, no illegals, no walls, no troops.

    I hope it escalates the situation. I hope the illegal *ALIENS* already in America, pull some more of their stunts, maybe even get violent. Because anything they do will backfire in their face. They'll push it to the point where NO ONE will want them here, and mass deportations JUST MIGHT START. You bet, round the fucking wetbacks up and send them back. Then FINE the EVER LOVIN' HELL out of ANYONE that they worked for.

    Thing is, we could solve this wetback problem in six weeks, IF we had a pair big enough to do it. Wait... let me rephrase that, IF the *GOVERNMENT* had a big enough pair to do it. The American public, by numbers in the 85 to 90% ALL want the border problem solved.

    And listening to Fox News just now, I hear that even they have given in to the PC pressure to start calling illegal *ALIENS*, illegal immigrants. Bulllllll shit. One out of every 100,000 MIGHT want to actually become an American citizen. The rest are nothing more than border jumping criminals. An "immigrant" comes to America "LEGALY".

    no. That relies too much on the enforcement mechanism which has already been bought off once. I want a wall.

    Try again. The National Guard are STATE, not Federal troops and it is well within their scope of duties to defend their states' borders.

    Your attempt at sensationalizing is weak at best.

    Not to mention the fact that Federal troops may indeed be deployed on U.S. soil in order to stop a foreign invasion, which is what this is.

    An order from the federal government to deploy National Guard troops renders that argument irrelevant as they would be acting under federal authority. Are the National Guard troops deployed to Iraq defending the borders of their respective states then?

    Your attempt to argue your point is feeble, at best.

    Ummm...That would be against a foreign military. Desperate people trying to find work don't really fall into that category.
