President Obama’s promise to put 1,200 new troops on the border is as empty as the national treasury. Turns out those troops won’t be used to stop the flow of illegal aliens.
AFP has a full report on Obama’s empty promise:
US National Guard troops being sent to the Mexican border will be used to stem the flow of guns and drugs across the frontier and not to enforce US immigration laws, the State Department said Wednesday.
The clarification came after the Mexican government urged Washington not to use the additional troops to go after illegal immigrants.
President Barack Obama on Tuesday authorized the deployment of up to 1,200 additional troops to border areas but State Department spokesman Philip Crowley told reporters, “It’s not about immigration.”
He said the move was “fully consistent with our efforts to do our part to stem, you know, violence, to interdict the flow of dangerous people and dangerous goods — drugs, guns, people.”
He said the extra troops would be used to free up civilians engaged in support functions so that law enforcement personnel can be increased along the 2,000-mile-long (3,200 kilometer) border.
How can you explain Obama’s constant kowtowing to the president of a corrupt third world country against the overwhelming opposition of the American people?
Felipe Calderon must have photos of Barack Obama in compromising positions with farm animals. It’s the only possible answer.
