Posted on 03/18/2009 7:36:29 AM PDT by HiJinx
WASHINGTON The Obama administration plans to send reinforcements to the Southwest border to help contain the rampant violence of the Mexican drug cartel wars.
Thirty-seven agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms are being deployed to the region. An official familiar with the plan said the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency is considering reassignment of at least 90 officers to the border.
The official requested anonymity because the plan has not yet been announced.

Keep yer powder dry, y'all...
How about building a fence?
They should just ask Sheriff Arpaio. He’ll get er done.
Oh this is going to get interesting...
Maybe they can find a compound and do a “dynamic” entry.
Good lord our pres__ent is an idiot.
Stop dreaming. Nobody will get 'er done.
Sheriff Arpaio isn’t an anti-illegal immigration zealot.
He just enforces the law. And it just so happens that he’s in an area where there are a lot of people breaking the law who also happen to be here illegally.
What we see in other localities is that they are more likely to let the illegals go to avoid the accusations that Arpaio is being subjected to.
With your attitude, no, nobody will get er done. Why don't you just sit in the corner while the big boys take care of things.
Who is kidding who? Obama and his storm troopers will not give up one ILLGAL MEXICAN VOTE. More show, more living lies, more deception, more liberalism.....
I was thinking that maybe the boy king needed some “powder” for himself and was sending federal agents to get a big supply to sustain him and his friends who party with him.
Wait a minute, the ATF?
Are they setting things up for failure there? Why send the ATF?
"He just enforces the law. And it just so happens that hes in an area where there are a lot of people breaking the law who also happen to be here illegally."
You "answered" your own argument in one breath.
Who are the "big boys" and when are they going to "take care of things"? Curious minds want to know.
Ya well they did such a good job a Waco.
1. Shoot across the border at us and you will get a swift and painful return from an Apache or a Predator.
2. Get caught within 1 mile of the border with more than a kilo of drugs you will be executed on the spot.
3. Get caught leading more than five illegal invaders into the country and you will be executed on the spot.
4. ALL "detained "illegal invaders will be return to Mexico via the most Southern port on the appropriate coast.
5. All "detained" invaders get a mark to show they have been here and returned. Get caught a second time and you are executed on the spot.
Why send the ATF?
Confiscate cases of Corona from underage drinkers?
The BATFE isn't going to the border to 'help' with the illegals situation.
They are going down there to identify which gun shops on THIS side of the border are having a lot of straw sales and put them out of business.
Is Janet Reno a consultant for this project?
Is that all?
During the siege of the Randy Weaver "compound" it was reported that as high as 800 meals per day were delivered to the jack booted thugs surrounding his house.
Agents and military personnel at the Branch Devonian "compound" ?
Sending 37 ATF agents is a sham, though it will help some. However, still more physical barriers are needed especially in Arizona on the land of the Tohono O'odham nation. There are several other hot spot routes for illegal entry along the AZ / Mex border that are wide open still.
So, let the sheeple drink the 0 kool aid and the goobermint will continue lying at all costs as a select few in DC and AZ take drug cartel money to look the other way. See if FOX news or any other media can get a close up sat photo, and you'll see exactly what I mean.
I saw the fence on TV. Especially all the patches to the fence where they were opened up by illegals. They are defenseless. A waste of money, as I see it.
The ATF? That can only mean that the idea is to harass FFL holders and try to put them out of business for minor things like entering “St.” for Street.
The problem is that they have orders to shoot Americans...
Thats what I meant. Ruby Ridge too right?
Seriously it looks like they are setting up failure with the signals that is sending.
Who needs Reno when you have Obama?
Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms
American citizens with registered fire arms?
YUP...smoke and mirrors...lots of wide open ‘undocumented’ routes for illegal entry still exist in AZ.....one of the catels’ favorite spots.
The big boys are people like Sheriff Arpaio and the rancher Roger Barnett. These are 2 fellows who have stood and upheld the laws of the land. These are the type of "big boys" I refer to. We just need a few more like them.
TO make the case that we need the Assault Weapons Ban back of course.
Yeah, the guy helping me with my last yellow sheet was VERY insistent that I not use “st” for street, or the two letter abbreviation for the state.
I thought HE was the anal one. I understand now. The bureaucrats use these things to put gun sellers out of business.
Someone start the countdown until innocent Americans get gunned down. 3....2....1
Maybe to arrest those who do not have a lime in the bottle.
I think the point is that the “woe is me” attitude does nothing but discourages good people from standing tall and demanding that something be done.
Hence the problem.
That might be who they are after.
37??? oh boy..thats alot of help
Oooooooooooooooo...... you might well have a very good point there.
The ramifications of that thought are really disturbing.
You obviously expect one hell of a budget for ammo!
I’m talking about a real fence/wall like the Israeli one. Concrete, barbed wire, watch towers, guards.
Thank you for getting my point across. I would have been here for days trying to do what you did in a sec!
Ok boys and girls, lets get out our pencils. The US Mexican border is 2000 miles long. If the Pres_ent sends 37 ATF to the border, how many miles would each man have to patrol 24/7?
Maybe the Zeta’s are hiding behind women and children. F- Troop to the rescue!
All vets of the Elian Gonzalez, Ruby Ridge, and Waco happenings in the past.
Maybe the ATF is there to set up another Waco situation.
Let’s see, who can be the perpetrators in a possible gun-running scheme from the US into Mexico? Not that that is a significant source of the weaponry being used in places like Juarez, or anywhere in Mexico, for that matter. Daily shipments of full automatic and military grade ordnance are received from China, Venezuela and North Korea.
But say that there is a religious colony in the near location to El Paso, and they also happen to have a small stockpile of (legally purchased) sidearms. They will be surrounded and stormed as being the “source” of the illegal weaponry being used in Mexico. And how were they getting them into Mexico? Why, a tunnel under the Rio Grande, of course, a highly engineered avenue of exchange of illegal drugs for illegal weapons.
Doesn’t matter that the religious colony never so much as exchanged business cards with the Mexican drug cartels, the fact remains that they COULD have, and the attack on the compound will be launched.
Waco all over again.
No persecution in this country. Nosiree, Bob
Their job will be to harass and shut down legal FFL gun shops in the area.
The line has been drawn and it's time for people to decide which side they stand.
