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.

Like I've asked previously... Anything to support your claim?


BTW, you do know if those biddies you mentioned old the cop "I'm not here legally" that would be reasonable suspicion, just like with Hispanics. Their age, gender, language, and appearance are not. I know seeing past such things trips up liberals quite often but that's their problem they are projecting on others.

WOW! Talk about racial profiling! How do you know they are going to church convention, or do all who go there look like white haired elderly women ?

>>> Yep, someone is speeding and if people that are in that vehicle happen to be of Hispanic descent, they very well may be "suspects"because after all there is a whole car full of them;-)

Well, that might be true if the police officer stopping them is as ignorant as most liberals appear to be. However, if the police officer actually knows the law, then he'll stop the car because it broke the law by speeding...and then investigate further if the driver doesn't have a valid ID.

Once again, passengers can be detained even if the driver has a license if they don't;-)

"Think about what they now have a right to act on which they did not before;-)"


You mean the authority to enforce the law?
