1,200 Band-Aids

No wonder Comrade Obama refuses to take more than obviously ineffectual token gestures to enforce border security and immigration law. Why waste energy on a problem that has already been solved? As he told us:

Today, we have more boots on the ground near the Southwest border than at any time in our history. Let me repeat that: We have more boots on the ground on the Southwest border than at any time in our history. … So the bottom line is this: The southern border is more secure today than at any time in the past 20 years.

Unfortunately, the “boots on the ground” may as well be “feet on the desk.” CNS News reports on the National Guard charade:

The 1,200 National Guard troops that are being deployed incrementally to the southwest border “will not be doing direct law enforcement,” said U.S. National Guard Bureau Director of Communications Jack Harrison when asked if the forces would be interdicting drugs and undocumented immigrants.

“The two mission sets are criminal analysts and enter-identification team,” Harrison told CNSNews.com. “I can tell you that guardsmen will not be doing direct law enforcement on the southwest border.”

In other words, the National Guardsmen will not be used to actually stop and detain illegal aliens trying to sneak across the border into the United States.

Troops spread too thin to do any good whatsoever anyway will be armed, but of course they have rules of engagement that prevent them from firing on enemy invaders except in “self-defense.” As for our country’s defense, that has been deliberately abandoned in the interests of changing America’s demographics more to the Democrat Party’s liking.

Compliments of Zappatrust.
