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.

You don't seem to take issue with that long-standing policy other than when it comes to illegal immigrants.<<


We already have laws in place for suspicion and probable cause so why do we need to put in place special laws designed to suspect "immigrants" of being illegal;-)
