Obama administration plans to pull back National Guard from much of the border
The washington Examiner ^ | Sara Carter

Posted on 11/18/2010 12:59:13 PM PST by Mozilla

The Obama Administration plans to withdraw National Guard troops from the Texas, New Mexico and California borders by the end February under a new Southwest security plan, even as turmoil in Mexican border cities grows, according to documents obtained by The Washington Examiner.

A letter sent to various members of the Texas Congressional delegation from Texas' Gov. Rick Perry's office says, "In February, 2011, the Texas, New Mexico, and California National Guard forces that were deployed to the border in September, 2010, under President's Obama's Southwest Border Augmentation Plan, will have 30 days to complete a total draw down of forces."

This is a joke of an Administration. The election is over, so the lunatic-left d-crat socialists no longer need to have ILLEGALS escorted across the border to vote.

Not enough illegals are getting in to impact the next general election.

This bastard should be impeached.

With an attention span conditioned by years of “American Idol” and “Dancing with the Stars” television viewing, the administration makes another calculated move to undermine US sovereignty.

Time for Texans to resurrect the Republic of Texas Militia. It served us well during Sam Houston’s time.

What??? Are they on crack? This is totally insane. I hope and pray to God, that obama is just so over his head and so full of himself that he doesn’t realize what a mess he’s making. The alternative of why he might be doing this is to horrible to think about.

I think they should put TSA folks along the border. At the very least they could grope and scan illegals.

Odd isn’t it? American citizens are treated like criminals.

Install the troops leading up to the election. Wait two weeks after the election and pull 'em all out.

Carter is delighted, he is no longer the Fail-iest President.

This is from Wikipedia about the Nevada National Guard, but I thought/think this applies to the National Guards of all states. How, then, can Obama over-rule the governors?

“Under the National Defense Act, the Army and Air National Guard are reserve components of the United States Army and Air Force. The state’s Guard MAY ALSO BE ORDERED BY THE GOVERNOR to serve the state by protecting persons or property from either man-made or natural disasters and suppressing or preventing riot, insurrection, INVASION or violence.

The GOVERNOR is the commander-in-chief of the Nevada National Guard and appoints the adjutant general. Since June 2005, Maj. Gen. (Nevada) Cynthia Kirkland has served as Nevada’s adjutant general under former Gov. Kenny Guinn, and new Gov. Jim Gibbons.

Under the DIRECTION OF THE GOVERNOR, the adjutant general is responsible for the supervision of all matters pertaining to the administration, discipline, mobilization, organization and training of the Nevada National Guard.”

Obama is pulling out all stops to send this county to communism. He was just sending the troops to the border in the first place to look good and help cheat.

It is because of Title 10 vs Title 32 activation!

Title 10 if Federal and Title 32 is State. Title 10 the Fed’s pay for it! Title 32, the State pays for it!

We should have ten thousand troops on our border right now. We should stop the cartels dead in their tracks, certainly on our side of the border. I’m contemplating action on the other side too.

We should stop all benefits whatsoever to illegal immigrants. They should be shown the door in short order.

Any whining that should be done, should be done by folks who have lost relatives, jobs, and homes to the illegals. Any other whining I don’t even want to hear.

It’s like you come home and find a hobo in your living room watching your TV and eating the food from our refrigerator with hundreds of your cookie jar dollars sticking out of his pocket, who refuses to let you change the channels or reclaim the money or the space.

And to top it off, you’re the bad guy if you object.

WTF is going on here?

So if the states haven’t allocated the money to pay their National Guard, they are out of luck?

What did they do that was significant, except, provide DumBO with cover?

The Gov is, until they are federalized. Then it’s POTUS. They will have to be pulled back, control returned to the states, then the Gov can call them out as the state contingent. Right now, they are federal troops, i.e., National Guard.

Surprise, surprise. Obama helped get his RINO boy McCain reelected with this charade of increased border security, so there’s no longer any need to keep up the charade. They avoided having a real conservative represent Arizona, so it’s time to move on.

(But I’m sure Juan’s is working day and night to “secure the border first” as he’s been promising since 2007, and really, really promised during his recent reelection, hoodwinking campaign.)

I am trying to remember the problem during Katrina of GWB calling out the Louisiana National Guard over the orders of the Governor. There is a law (can't remember the name of it or its exact contents) that says the federal government has to declare martial law in order for the federal government to take over the Guard.

Another symbolic act. The "troops" have been deployed at desks...far from the border. The only impact is that they can go home and talk about their excellent games of Solitaire while accomplishing nothing...on purpose.

Here we go. I'm sure we will hear massive protests from McCain/Kyl any minute now, after seeing their border security plan abandoned.

McCain, Kyl back bill, call for guard on border

There are 35,000 troops on the border at El Paso’s Fort Bliss alone. There are another 7,000 or so at Fort Huachuca, 14 miles north of the border. Trouble is, none of them are being used to guard the border.

Correct. She HAD TO ASK THE FEDS for help. Then POTUS could have sent them in. SHE could have sent them in as the state guard. But you have to have functioning brain cells to do that. She couldn’t make a decision.

It’s like having 250 police on your payroll, and paying them to sit in a coffee shop and eat donuts.

No offense intended to our troops here, but why are we not using them to defend our nation? This is insanity on parade.

Thanks for the mention.

I have a friend on Facebook who affectionately refers to pOs as a “SHITSTAIN”. I believe the woman is a law inforcement officer.
