"Title 32, Section 9, U.S. Code now allows our governors to call out their National Guard for homeland security missions such as this at 100 percent Federal expense."
Calling all Governors....NOW!
Too bad we can't call on this governor anymore!
Mr. Norwood gets it.
Make it so, #1
If the burden of the National Guard is too heavy, we can ask our governors to loan the Nation's 15,000 State defense forces to help. We can call up the Coast Guard Auxiliary and the U.S. Air Force Civil Air Patrol.
We have laws in place, thanks to changes we made in the 108th Congress. Title 32, Section 9, U.S. Code now allows our governors to call out their National Guard for homeland security missions such as this at 100 percent Federal expense."
I'd love to see someone come on the thread and explain why this shouldn't be done. The biggest excuse I've seen is that it wouldn't work because people are still going to be desperate to come in, etc., etc. But I say, let's try it for a week and see how it works. If it succeeds at vastly reducing the number of illegals making it across, we should keep it in place.
Oh. I thought it was Iraq.
don't matter what his politics are, I like his thinking
Mexico is 'integrating' with the US. They've said so with a smirk, and why not? They shift the poor and jobless over the border, where we pick up the tab for everything from soup to nuts, plus we employ them...and they send the money home. Notice the emphasis on HOME. They're Mexicans with Mexican mores, culture and language. Most dream of going back home once they strike it rich in the US. Instead, they decide living in a free society, relatively speaking, less corrupt than Mexico has merit and they stay. Ask any illegal woman what she'll do first and she'll tell you in Spanish, "Have an anchor baby."
The lower quarter of Mexico's population is already here, and half of those remaining are packing their bags, dreaming of heading north at the first opportunity. That's the middle class. Evidently Fox sees no problemo with that. There was a Time cover story about a week ago. A Mexican now living in New Jersey running his own landscaping firm. He said he sneaked across the border some years back, sent money home to his family and soon the entire village headed north. The power of positive reinforcement. God help us. We simply can't assimilate so many millions at once. And when they get the vote, politicians will fall all over themselves to please them. US sovereignty and identity is in peril.
Happened to have the TV on C-Span. The CFR discussing Africa. Guess what? They're itching to make Africa/democratization a top priority for the US govt. They were horrified to discover that more US citizens connected with stories about gorillas in peril from poachers than African genocide. While the US is quietly doing things to bolster UN peace keepers in Darfur, it's their view we're not doing enough. The CFR won't be happy until most of Africa is relocated to downtown Minneapolis. Just remember that our friends at the CFR promoted NAFTA, CAFTA, and now One Happy Hemisphere, where free trade is the order of the day, and people (formerly known as illegal aliens), travel wherever they want, no papers. We're supposed to call them 'trusted travelers' now.
Actually, we should compare the influx of 4 million illegal immigrants to losing a state. If the current rate of growth in the western states does not abate, we could face the possibility that future hispanic majorities in those states would secede from the Union.
I don't know whether to laugh or to cry .... hmmmmm .... laughing is more than likely the best response as our leadership, both sides of the aisles, all branches of "federal" government have been inept for so long. Laughter is the only thing that keeps me from totally loosing it.
This is ONE person (Norwood) who really gets it and points out so clearly and easily the absurdity of the current lack of border security, despite the nonsense we're told otherwise.
Congress needs to take action as do all Governors. To state the obvious.
Because, it's not going to get done otherwise. To state the obvious again.
That's $70 BILLION-A-YEAR that American taxpayers pony up to enable all that cheap labor "doing the work that Americans won't do" and we don't see a penny of that back in profit, only higher prices year in, year out.
Thus, it's not so cheap as labor, after all. In fact, at $70 Billion-A-YEAR, it's pretty DARN EXPENSIVE LABOR.

CAP ping. The Civil Air Patrol ran air patrols along the Southwestern border during WWII, and if so tasked again, can handle it as well as it did the forest fire-spotting missions and coastal antisubmarine ops of the same period.
