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.

Reading this thread, I'm trying to figure out what the left wants to happen. We all agree that people are entering this country illegally. The people doing this are fugitives in our country. I don't think there is any dispute about that.


The Arizona law forbids profiling to be used in enforcing the law. Okay, no problem there. We don't want that.


But it seems that the left just doesn't want the law enforced at all, for some reason. What do you want? Do you want the people that have illegally entered this country caught and deported?

A lot of us want the Illegal immigrant to stop. But no one has an answer that will do just that. Fences haven't worked. Boarder Patrols are having an awful time keeping up. I also have to wonder how many people will be willing to give up the Nanny, pool guy, lawn guy? There is nothing new about Illegal immigrants. It's a polital football right now. The TAX thing didn't work out so let's see how long this sticks.

If we already did that, Arizona would not have had to take matters into their own hands, would they?


These people who enter our country are most likely to be poor and desperate.


All well and good. Maybe they are. Should we only arrest bank robbers that really don't need the money?


Do you think we should enforce the law and deport people that enter the country illegally?


As long as they can get money to feed themselves and their families they will come.


Yes, that's why Arizona is taking measures to enforce the law that the Feds won't enforce.


Since many of our trade laws have caused massive poverty in Mexico why not work on that end and allow Mexico to be a place where people don't feel the need to escape?


Mexico is responsible for their own economy, not us. Anyway, that has nothing to do with us securing our boarders. I know both democrats and republican politicians are hesitant to protect the boarder, but most of the people want it secure, especially if they live near the boarder.


So, do we secure the boarders or not?
