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.

"Detained on suspicion for being "illegal" only applies to one subgroup of people;-)"


Really? Where did you get a silly idea like that? The semi-concious Maddow or something?

"Illegal people can vote;-)"


Sure. Hell, in liberal states not only illegals get to vote but so do dead people and fictional characters. And as a bonus, any of them can vote as often as they like.

"Riiight to prove the law profiles it must state it does;-0"

Actually the law states specifically racial profiling can not be used.... So you understand why some are of the opinion accusations like yours are simply made up fantasy from the left in order to scare people with falsehoods in an attempt to subvert protecting ourselves from illegal activities.

"This is an untrue statement."


LOL, another unsubstanciated accusation. And considering the source of it I'll give it the credibility it deserves.
