More National Guard Troops At Our Border Is Not The Answer

The White House has suddenly decided to send 1,200 National Guards to our southwest border. This might seem like welcome news. After all, the border needs all the help it can get. McCain insists it’s not nearly enough. But both of them are wrong. As Charles Krauthammer pointed out on Tuesday night’s Fox News, this is nothing but a PR stunt, and it really won’t help in the least. Even if you send the 6000 National Guard that McCain requests, it won’t help. As Krauthammer said, Bush did this as well, and the guard came, and they went, and the problems remained.

This isn’t like the oil spill, where we can’t find a solution. We know the solution. We know what works. We even have the money to do it.

Krathammer:

“The only answer here, and it is a simple answer – I say it again and again, because there is no objection that makes sense: Complete the fence. Don’t send the Guard down there. They are going to go, they’re going to come back – [it] won’t make any difference. A fence remains. A fence works. . . .

I mean, this is an obvious issue. The Democrats are unbelievably stubborn on this. If you want to really. . . use stimulus money, you don’t send a thousand Guard. You send 20,000 unemployed and you build a fence quickly. And once that’s done, let’s have an argument and a debate about legalization and all the other steps.

Amen brother! Secure the border, and then we can have the robust debate we need to have about legalization, the guest worker program, and everything else to do with the illegals that live and work in the shadows here in America.

Why can’t we do this?
