    Obama to Deploy Up to 1,200 National Guard Troops to U.S.-Mexico Border
    FOXNews.com

    President Obama told Senate Republicans Tuesday that he's read the controversial Arizona immigration law and is concerned it would allow for discrimination -- but is planning to deploy up to 1,200 National Guard troops to the U.S.-Mexico border to allay security concerns.

    An administration official confirmed to Fox News that Obama plans to request $500 million for "enhanced border protection and law enforcement" and deploy the National Guard troops as needed.

    The official said the National Guard would be used to "provide intelligence; surveillance and reconnaissance support; intelligence analysis; immediate support to counternarcotics enforcement; and training capacity until Customs and Border Patrol can recruit and train additional officers and agents to serve on the border."

    It's about time that troops were sent to the border to keep it closed to illegal Mexican (and all others) aliens. As far as I can tell, it's the only intelligent thing that Owe Bama has done since he's been in office. My guess, is once the troops get there and get their gear stowed, if they shoot just one illegal alien trying to sneak across into the US, the word will travel pretty fast and their trying to sneak into America will come to a sudden stop. Honest, all you have to do is shoot just one.

    The White House plans to send as many as 1,200 National Guard to the U.S.-Mexico border to assist with surveillance, intelligence, training and drug enforcement.

    President Obama has also asked that $500 million be included in supplemental spending legislation to be used to fund more agents, more prosecutors, more technology, and improve information sharing among local, state and tribal law enforcement, said an Obama administration official via email.

    The decision is part of the Obama’s overall plan for securing the border, the official said.

    The office of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz., announced the planned deployment this morning in a press release. Giffords has been among a contingent of Arizona politicians including Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Jon Kyl, R-Ariz., who been calling for troops to the border since Douglas-area rancher Robert Krentz was found dead on his ranch on March 27. Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer wanted troops but didn’t want to use state funds to pay for them.

    It’s unknown who killed Krentz but there’s been speculation that it was a drug smuggling scout who fled into Mexico based on information released by Cochise County Sheriff Larry Dever.

    Here’s how the Obama administration official outlined the role the Guard will play:

    1200 is a start but is it enough?

    Did anyone else see this? I'm all for border security but this is ridiculous when there is another option (the traffic could be moved to larger crossings nearby).

    Obama's probably sending the National Guard down there to provide the illegals with water and healthcare. ~BH

    Instead of being a smart ass bod, why not debate me on it? What? :razz: You expect me to believe that all of a sudden the dunce had a moment of clarity in regards to his opinion on Illegal immigration? LMAO!!!! What a load of fucking bullshit. He's sending them down there to protect the Illegals, not stop them. Also, it doesn't hurt to send a small number (1,500) of the NG down there to do absolutely fucking nothing positive in order to gain a few Political points. Plus, he gets another 500 million from Congress to blow on some other load of crap. ~BH
