Obama only pretends to care about illegal immigration
Don't be fooled into thinking Obama's empty gesture of sending 1200 national guardsmen to the Mexican border is meaningful.....
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.
This is patently absurd! Does he think the guns and drugs sneak across the border by themselves? What are the troops supposed to do, cater coffee and donuts to the border guards? Do office paper work?
This is a politically calculated scheme hatched no doubt, by Axelrod and Emanual to get Obama's poll numbers out of the basement on immigration. The guardsmen are forbidden from actually stopping any aliens from coming in because every one of them represents a guaranteed democrat vote once Obama grants them amnesty. He may put them on a path to citizenship that takes years but, they'll receive full voting rights immediately.
Arizona is just doing the job that the federal government should have been doing for the last 30 years. Obama's approval is in the low 40's so he needs something to get them back up. This ridiculous border stunt won't do it.
