Democrats stop bid to send 6,000 troops to border

WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama's Democratic allies in the Senate have repelled a move by presidential rival John McCain to send an additional 6,000 National Guard troops to the U.S-Mexico border.

The Arizona Republican says the security situation along the order has deteriorated so badly that 3,000 guard troops are needed just to help protect his state. But McCain failed to muster the required 60 votes for his plan as the Senate continued debate on an a war funding bill.

Obama on Tuesday promised to send 1,200 Guard troops to the border to support efforts to block drug trafficking and temporarily supplement Border Patrol agents until more agents can be trained.

Former President George W. Bush sent thousands of Guard troops to the border in 2006.

Reagan mistakenly trusted the Dems to follow through with "comprehensive immigration reform" and secure the border when he granted illegals amnesty. Bush increased border security, got funding for a border fence and had it built in many strategic areas, making the border...according to Napolitano and Obama...as secure as it has ever been.

What has Barry done? Nothing...if obstruction counts as nothing.

What would President Reagan do? For one thing, he would not repeat the mistakes of the past, including those of his own administration. He knew that secure borders are vital, and would now insist on meeting that priority first. He would seek to strengthen the enforcement of existing immigration laws. He would employ new tools—like biometric technology for identification, and cameras, sensors and satellites to monitor the border—that make enforcement and verification less onerous and more effective.

So you think a police officer who believes someone is carrying an illegal weapon should simply look the other way?

>>> We have laws that protect us from search and seizure so if he "suspects" he will have to get a warrant. If he sees me with one he can do something about it;-)

If s/he has a reasonable suspicion s/he can search you without a warrant...but with the illegals, s/he has to have some other reason for the initial stop, but can then proceed and investigate the immigration status if s/he, again, has a reasonable suspicion a crime has been committed.
