    President Obama has ordered 1,200 National Guard troops to be deployed along the US-Mexico border to help secure our southern frontier.

    In that the Obama administration refuses to deport any illegal immigrants when apprehended in Arizona, I can only conclude that this is nothing more than symbolism.

    Window dressing.

    Too few to accomplish anything, but enough for the liar in chief to say he did something about illegal immigration.

    Meanwhile he continues to direct his efforts towards amnesty and citizenship for illegals.

    Read the posts and you will easily see that President Obama cannot do anything that will satisfy these extreme right-wingers.

    Being realistic this is a good thing however shallow it may be.

    Yep, absolutely nothing will satisfy the connies. This reminds me of when Bart Stupak got a huge concession on abortion in the healthcare law and the Right thanked him by calling him a baby killer. It's sad to see the Republican Party continue to marginalize itself by becoming more and more extreme instead of being a viable opposition party.

    Good for Obama. Now...increase by a factor of fifty, and maybe we'll get somewhere.

    I'll say this...it's more than Bush ever did.

    You just gotta love this sentence in the OP article...

    "The Mexican Embassy said Tuesday it hoped the National Guard troops would be used to fight drug cartels and not enforce immigration laws. Mexico has traditionally objected to the use of military forces to control undocumented migration, saying such measures would criminalize migrants and open the way for potential abuse."

    Heaven forbid that the U.S should enforce immigration laws or criminalize illegal immigrants !! :laugh:

    Actually, the 1200 troops (spread out over four states, by the way) are going to be doing mostly administrative duties, not actually patrolling the border.

    In other words, Mao-Bama is making an empty gesture, hoping to satisfy those who aren't paying attention.

    Sure he can.

    1. Fire the idiot who said they're not going to prosecute border criminals captured in Arizona

    2. Enforce federal laws

    3. Stop criticizing Arizona's law when it's taken almost word for word from the same federal statutes he refuses to address

    4. Stop grinning and nodding his head like some trained monkey when Calderon criticizes our laws on US soil, all the while knowing that Mexico's immigration laws are even stricter than ours, yet refusing to acknowledge that.

    Would President O'Bama be considered a dignitary?

    Yes. Being a dignitary is not about being popular or unpopular.

    Well, here's a shocker:

    We may be sending troops, but they won't be stopping illegal immigration.

    http://www.breitbart.com/article.php?id=CNG.0513d49acfc29bc63d3ee39de8bd3b71.dc1&show_article=1

    OK, I'm confused. We're trying to "stem, you know, interdict the flow of dangerous people and goods..."

    If we're trying to stop something, then why do we deliberately let them go?

    I wish our administration would get their stories straight. Fat chance.

    Of course, Mexico "urged" us to not bother folks coming here illegally. And in between his bowing to foreign heads of state, Obama readily complied.

    Bush's bunch was abysmal with regards to illegal immigration. Obama's crew might just be worse. National security must ba a joke to them.
