or it's just two socialist bastards scratching each others' backs.
US National Guard troops being sent to the Mexican border will be used to stem the flow of guns and drugs across the frontier and not to enforce US immigration laws, the State Department said Wednesday.
The clarification came after the Mexican government urged Washington not to use the additional troops to go after illegal immigrants.
President Barack Obama on Tuesday authorized the deployment of up to 1,200 additional troops to border areas but State Department spokesman Philip Crowley told reporters, “It’s not about immigration.”
He said the move was “fully consistent with our efforts to do our part to stem, you know, violence, to interdict the flow of dangerous people and dangerous goods — drugs, guns, people.”
Bad enough that this sorry excuse for a President does this, but the Guard troops will not be armed, either. Yeah, that's just fucking great: put them in hazard with no arms. Just the kind of thinking we've come to expect from these assholes. Just effing wonderful.
