President Obama is going to send a token 1,200 National Guard troops to the border of Arizona. However, after pressure from the Mexican government, just a day later, the US State Department came out yesterday, May 26, 2010 and made it clear that the National Guard troops will be omniscient enough to tell "good" illegal aliens - who mean no harm to the United States - from the "bad" illegal aliens - who are trafficking drugs or guns or are potential terrorists.
It is quite amazing to me that this administration and the illegal alien supporters continue to push this line of thought. These are the same groups that criticized the Arizona SB1070 law saying that law enforcement cannot tell who is illegal and who is not. Yet we are led to believe that troops they are sending to the southern border will not only be able to tell who is an illegal alien, but which ones are only "coming here to work".
It is just one more slap in the face by our federal government to the American people. All of their arguments lack any logic and I am pretty sure that the majority of American Citizens see what is going on.
The fact that Mexico has that much power to make our State Department release such a ludicrous declaration within a day of a declaration just shows that something needs to be done to end the corruption that has crept into our government from south of the border.
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.
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."
The report also includes the little tidbit "Nearly 13 million Mexicans live in the United States, more than half of them illegally.", but anyone paying attention knows that is blatantly a false statement. Indeed more than half of Mexicans in the United States are here illegally, but that 13 million number is a complete fabrication.
