Posted on 07/09/2014 9:13:53 PM PDT by Nachum
On Wednesday, President Barack said that he was "happy to consider" deploying National Guard troops to the U.S.-Mexico border to help local law enforcement officials stem the tide of illegal immigrant children flooding across it.
After meeting with Texas Governor Rick Perry in Dallas, Texas, Obama said sending National Guard troops, though, would be a "temporary solution."
Obama said if Republicans wanted some National Guard troops to be sent to the border as a condition for approving the $3.7 billion in funding Obama requested, he "would be happy to consider it."

He’s trying to blackmail the country.
There’s continuing disinformation that it’s the ‘open border’ or people secretly crossing that’s the problem.
The problem is community activists have gone to central America (non-continuous countries) and stirred up the population there telling them to BE FOUND. Just go to a border agent and tell them, “I’m fleeing the cartel, drug violence, sex abuse” and U.S. law requires them to have a hearing.
If there’s a hearing, they are brought in and very few actually show up for any hearing ever.
I wouldn’t be surprised if the drug cartels we are siding with in Mexico (google it) are helping assist moving the human cargo north.
He’ll pocket the money, consider the request, and: “Denied (unless they’re going to babysit, change diapers and wash bottles.)”
The House would impeach this bass-turd if any one of them had a single hair on his a**, but they’re as worthless as teats on a boar.
This government gives Gramma a rectal exam at the airport but then turns a blind eye when people are flooding across the border.
Defend the border - NO CONDITIONS!
“Obama ‘Happy to Consider’ Deploying National Guard to Border”
I thought it was a governor’s prerogative to deploy National Guard troops.
Let me ask because I do not know. Aren’t the National Guard under each state’s governors and not the president?
$3.7 billion? It won’t cost that much to send them all back.
U.S. Const. art. I, § 10 No State shall, without the Consent of Congress, lay any Duty of Tonnage, keep Troops, or Ships of War in time of Peace, enter into any Agreement or Compact with another State, or with a foreign Power, or engage in War, unless actually invaded, or in such imminent Danger as will not admit of delay.
U.S. Const. amend. X The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
All States retain the right to self defense. The Federal government has refused to provide for the common defense, the raison d'etre for the Federal government. The States must repel invasion or the people will.
The Texas Governor has the authority to call forth the state military forces and the reserve militia to repel the invasion.
Tex. Gov. Code Sec. 431.071
Tex. Gov. Code Sec. 431.001
Tex. Const. art. 4, § 7
The Arizona Governor has the authority to proclaim an emergency and mobilize all or any part of the state guard or the unorganized militia into service of the state.
Ariz. Const. art. 5, § 3
Ariz. Rev. Stat. § 26-174.
Ariz. Rev. Stat. § 26-122.
Ariz. Rev. Stat. § 26-121.
Ariz. Rev. Stat. § 26-172.
N.B. Unlike Arizona SB-1070, these do not pertain to immigration but to a proclamation of an emergency and the protection of lives or property.
Liar, liar, pants on fire.
It is. Governors control the state national guards UNLESS... the pres steps in.
Then they are ‘federalized.’
This threat was made to some southern governors during the Civil Rights era.
“Obama said if Republicans wanted some National Guard troops to be sent to the border as a condition for approving the $3.7 billion in funding Obama requested, he “would be happy to consider it.””
Yep. Perry should have said “Either you call out the guard. Or I do.” Perry is a fraud. He should stand up in his cowboy boots and act like a man.
Arrogant yes but also showing his Achilles heel, money. He actually sat with someone to try and bully his way to money. The House has never had a better chance to stop this tyrant than if they cut him off, period.
EXTORTION is the only word used to describe Hussein Obama’s actions.
Congress should tell him NO! He will not force them to go home if he gets his $3.7 billion. Approve about $20 million to round them all up and send them home.
Texas should secede and protect its own borders.
The National Guard is loyal to their state.
Regular army & Airborne, they’re probably a lot less loyal to Caesar than he would like to think.
Their oath is to the Constitution, not a ‘blood oath’ to the little fuehrer.
Just found this article on the topic.
I am of the opinion that we need a “border guard” functionally similar to the Coast Guard. Basically a service of trained soldiers (Infantrymen / MPs) who operate within 5 miles of the US southern border. Have them build at wall and turn back those attempting to cross illegally.
This is a conspiracy between the soetoro / jarrett / soros regime and the governments of Mexico and the other Central American countries. It is treason and no one in the Republican Congress has the spine to call it what it is or to stop it.
“It is. Governors control the state national guards UNLESS... the pres steps in.”
I would think that could happen only if the governor was incapacitated or it being a national emergency.
Yes, he really wants the National Guard on the border. His thinking is that they can help change diapers and babysit.
U.S. Const. art. II, § 2 The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States;
Statutes do not amend the Constitution.
Tex. Const. art. 4, § 7 He shall be Commander-in-Chief of the military forces of the State, except when they are called into actual service of the United States. He shall have power to call forth the militia to execute the laws of the State, to suppress insurrections, and to repel invasions.
The federal executive has no authority to alter a state constitution.
The federal executive has no authority over the Texas State Guard.
The federal executive has no authority over the Texas reserve militia.
The federal executive does have authority over the Texas Army National Guard and the Texas Air National Guard only when they are called into actual service of the United States. At all other times the Governor is the Commander in Chief of these forces.
There is no reason for Governors to stand by idly while their State is invaded.
He happily considers buying Mooch the extra strength sticky tape too.
The only reason Obama is getting away with this is will. He does not have the law on his side, he is violating law. Gov. Perry does have the law on his side, yet he seems to have no will.
History is decided by action.
“Hes trying to blackmail the country.”
That be raciss.
No additional funding. As I’ve posted before, take the money being spent for the housing and upkeep to date from the amount of USAID we’re sending the parent countries.
Why are we sending these central American countries tens and hundreds of billions of dollars each year (for decades now) if their poor, who are supposed to be the ones being helped by those hundreds of billions, are running away from them?
It won’t be long now before Barry has the National Guard down there changing sh*tty diapers and doing the illegal aliens’ laundry right alongside the Border Patrol.
I read that Jarrett has/had been working with “immigration” activists and of course we know where turncoat soros is coming from. He must have a trillion or so to make if the US disintegrates. These two own zero’s soul.
1. Bottomless pit? Do pro-amnesty supporters and Obama want us---out of the kindness of our hearts---to welcome those children from Nicaragua, El Salvador, and Honduras forever until there are no more children in those countries, because they will all be in the US?
2. Is this immigration mess turning into a bottomless pit, where wave upon wave of children flood the US, and where there is no solution in sight?
3. Undocumented: First, they were called "undocumented". A word that I still don't understand.
4. Refugees: Now the pro-amnesty people are using the term "refugees" to describe this flood of illegals.
5. If they are refugees, why don't they head south toward Brazil and other countries farther south. But no, they all head north, and even bypass Mexico.
6. No tattoos: if a person has tattoos covering the visible parts of his body like his face and arms, he must be sent back.
7. Bottomless pit: Again, is this immigration mess turning into a bottomless pit, where Obama and pro-amnesty people won't be happy until every child in Central America journeys to America and is allowed to stay? What a mess.
I refer to them as ‘unlawful entrants’.
‘Illegal immigrant’ implies that they have some sort of legal status that needs to be considered.
The sooner we turn the language back around, and force an acceptance that these people have no status, no standing, no rights on our side of the border, the better.
he is shirking his constitutional duty. impeach the futher mucker now.
so what if he can’t be removed now. impeach him anyway. what he’s done deserves it.
if we win the senate chances are mccain, graham, snowe and murkowski would stop removal so just do impeachment regardless.
To late for me to dig up the intentions of the framers again.
We need to see that bill they want fast tracked in the dark of night.
How could you negotiate with a person who just ignores the anything he doesn’t like in the deal after you pass the bill
Paul Ryan will get right on it.
Yet he tries to get off the hook by blaming congress and republicans for not giving him money he just wants to waste on non-actions.
He is not incompetent. He just refuses to do the right thing.
I blame Obama totally for failure to act and failure to lead.
If the department of justice wants to challenge that, ARREST THE ATTORNEY GENERAL FOR BREAKING THE STATE LAWS. Hold Holder without bail in the state jail.
Governor has a pen and a phone too!!!!!
3.7 billion just to consider an idea, not to actually do it? And why does he need to be bribed to fulfill his constitutional obligations?
Giving Obama $3.7 Billion to fix the border problem he created would be the same as giving Hitler the same to fix the concentration camp problem. Neither one see each issue as a problem for themselves.
Perry is a fraud. Remember when he stood at the debates and said that Texas did not need a fence? He said his creek was enough of a barrier.
Let Obama take the $3.7 billion out of the SNAP budget. Make him pay very dearly for those new Democrat voters.
The usual complete lack of balls to say what he really believes and intends to do. He will go on "considering" forever and do nothing. Exactly like the Keystone pipeline situation.
No, only when all of their families are permitted to rejoin them in the interests of "family reunification" and are then given citizenship so they can vote in our elections. That's what all of this is about.
