Item #4: Chairman Zero's Phony Border Security Ploy

Posted by Gregory of Yardale at May 26, 2010 4:31 AM

Part of Chairman Zero's recent bitchiness has been over the law Arizona passed that served to rub it in his smug little face that his Department of Homeland Security is refusing to enforce immigration laws. Worse, by large majorities, the American people are siding with Arizona and against him.

Because this issue was bad for his party, Obama was forced to do what Bush did under similar circumstances and make a half-assed show of enforcing the border. Actually, make that one-tenth-assed. Bush sent 6,000 National Guard to the border, Chairman Zero is only sending 1,200. Also, as Michelle Malkin reports, those National Guardsmen won't actually be allowed to assist in stopping illegal immigration, per orders from Mehico.

The Government of Mexico expects that National Guard personnel will strengthen US operations in the fight against transnational organized crime that operates on both sides of our common border and that it will not, in accordance to its legal obligations, conduct activities directly linked to the enforcement of immigration laws.

Making the USA Mexico's bitch is another Bush-Era policy the Obama Administration seems intent on maintaining.
