Napolitano: State and local police may deploy to border
The Washington Times ^ | June 23, 2010 | Stephan Dinan

Posted on 06/23/2010 1:03:06 PM PDT by jazusamo

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said Wednesday the federal government will move to let state and local police in non-border states rotate down to the border to help local authorities go after smugglers along the U.S.-Mexico line.

In a major policy speech in which she took aim at what she called "bumper sticker" slogans and said the Obama administration has made huge strides on security, Miss Napolitano said the border can be made still more secure and said administration officials are in the middle of "surging" more boots on the ground.

"We are not satisfied. There is more work to do," said Miss Napolitano, a former Arizona governor.

The remarks signal a change in tone for the secretary, who late last year said she believed enough had been done on the border that Congress could turn its attention to legalizing illegal immigrants already in the U.S. The remarks come as President Obama is trying to apply moderate pressure to Congress to pass such an immigration bill this year.

Asked when the border might finally be secure, Miss Napolitano did not answer directly, instead saying officials will never completely "seal" the border

The blind leading the blind and the border isn't getting sealed, she and Obama aren't even putting up speed bumps.

CLOSE THE DAM BORDER......NOW. Work on the rest later. It doesn’t take a brain surgeon to figure this out. Basically, they don’t really care and don’t want to fix it.

Non-border states? Iowa and West Virginia, etc to send their LEO's to man the border? Ridiculous to me. They need to be working in their own states.

Why doesn't this Administration 'hire' the Border Patrol Agents that the Bush Administration provided for? It appears that the feds wants other states to do their job.

I would think that this move does in fact weaken their argument before the court on the Arizona law.

Ms. Napolitano has demonstrated she is as willing as McCain and Obama to demagogue this issue.

Does she know she has a national guard contingent at her beck and call? Probably not. Her kind are loathe to consider them for anything productive.

So it’s illegal for Arizona to empower state and local police to enforce border security, but it’s OK for Nappy Napolitano to employer OTHER states’ local and state police to enforce border security.

Is there anyone with a brain in the Obama administration?

Yeah, well, Arizona is a red state so its no skin off of Mr. Skittles nose, as they say. Have you seen the murder rate for Chicago lately? You think a couple of Arizona crackers being capped by international undocumented workers will bother the ONE?

“We’re going to see major bloodshed fairly soon.”

Would that be before or after we all die of some disease they brought across the border or are killed by Mexican gangs?

Think of this, as if it is "The Enemies Strategy," no better way to empty a nation of soldiers than sending them to a foreign war that does not exist. The political class needs bodies to replace the Aborted; where else are they going to get them, citizenry not producing for tribute. The Nation is burning, while they tell you its just a Barbeque with Tacos and Kebabs!

Now why would they do that, it would work, such is not the goal. This is about getting two things, first assisting Mexico to maintain an Oligarchy while reducing the pressure of Mexican problems, second managing a desired, pliable and controllable national population see post #22.

National Guard always belonged to the State Governors until a national need (i.e., war).

With this Administration they belong to the Federal Government and the Governors must ask permission to use them. I wonder why the NG are paid with checks from the State Treasury, when not mobilized by the federal government?

Maybe we need to send some returning combat troops from Iraq and Afghanistan directly to the border. Let them shoot it out with the banditos, etc and see if their ‘war training’ equips them to beat the drug lords.

I am sick of hearing about the banditos or whom ever shooting across the border into Texas homes.

Thoroughly pointless and utterly dishonest demagoguery. Hussein & CO know full well no "non-border" state will have it's cops go to Arizona, etc to work as border patrol agents! It's ridiculous on its face. But it SOUNDS as though they're actually DOING something. All those years at the Richard Daley School for Misleading and Incoherent Statements are really paying off.

This is a very very bad idea. It “federalizes” police. Police is a community and state function. Moving police power to the federal zone is a direct attack on freedom. Send the troops as promised.

No DAMNED shortcuts.

I have an idea. Round up all the swat teams with all their paramilitary goodies and send them to the border to play with their toys. No more dogs shot in no knock raids and they can see what it is like to be shot at.

How nice of her. That's up to the bordering States. I'll bet if Arizona issued a "call up the militia" they'd get enough volunteers that they wouldn't need help from other states. It would also be a nice reminder to Washington that the States call the shots - not them.

BS about the blind leading the blind.

They know what they’re doing and they don’t want the border closed.

“SINGLE ACTS OF TYRANNY MAY BE ASCRIBED TO THE ACCIDENTAL OPINION OF A DAY; BUT A SERIES OF OPPRESSIONS, BEGUN AT A DISTINGUISHED PERIOD, AND PURSUED UNALTERABLY THROUGH EVERY CHANGE OF MINISTERS (ADMINISTRATIONS) TOO PLAINLY PROVES A DELIBERATE, SYSTEMATIC PLAN OF REDUCING US TO SLAVERY.” - Thomas Jefferson.

ZBIGNIEW BREZHINSKY, National Security Advisor to President Jimmy Carter and advisor to 4 other presidents, Executive Director of Trilateral Commission, Marxist and proud of it! Here he speaks about what a New World Order will be like: “The technetronic era involves the gradual appearance of a more controlled society. Such a society would be dominated by an elite, unrestrained by traditional values.”

COMMUNIST RULES FOR REVOLUTION (Captured at Dusseldorf in May 1919 by Allied Forces)

1. Corrupt the young; get them away from religion. Get them interested in sex. Make them superficial; destroy their ruggedness.
2. By specious argument cause the breakdown of old moral virtues; honesty, sobriety, continence, faith in the pledged word, ruggedness.
3. Encourage civil disorders and foster a lenient and soft attitude on the part of government toward such disorders. (L.A. riots were just a coincidence? ... Of course!)
4. Divide the people into hostile groups by constantly harping on controversial matters of no importance. (Racial differences?)
5. Get people’s minds off their government by focusing their attention on athletics, sexy books, plays, and other trivialities.
6. Get control of all means of publicity. (Media)
7. Destroy the people’s faith in their natural leaders by holding the latter up to contempt, ridicule and obloquy (disgrace).
8. Cause the registration of all firearms on some pretext, with a view to confiscation and leaving the population helpless.

Thomas Jefferson says, “To compel a man to furnish funds for the propagation of ideas he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.”
