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.

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

Nope. There's no legal requirement for a passenger of a vehicle to carry ID, and the passenger would not have been guilty of committing a crime so unless the police officer observes something extraordinary s/he would have no grounds for investigating further, and certainly no grounds for detaining a passenger.

>>> Too bad it is only now that liberals seem to have a whole problem with the police determining what 'reasonable suspicion' means when they had no problem with this before.

Hypocrisy is an integral part of liberalism.
