Washington, D.C. -- “This morning, Secretary of Defense Robert Gates signed an order extending the temporary deployment of National Guard personnel along the Southwest border through September 30, 2011. Since their arrival at the end of last summer, thousands of National Guard Soldiers and Airmen have served alongside U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers and agents to thwart violence associated with Mexican drug cartels. Their efforts and assistance to CBP have not only yielded the seizure of more than 14,000 pounds of drugs, but they have also strengthened the multi-layered approach to combat the smuggling of persons, illegal narcotics, and dangerous weapons along our border.

This announcement comes at a critical time. The United States has yet to experience spillover violence thanks in large part to an unparalleled increase in resources, including the National Guard personnel. We must not relinquish our commitment to keeping communities, especially those along the U.S.-Mexico border, safe. I welcome the extension of the National Guard troops as a necessary step in continued efforts to strengthen the security of our border to Mexico, and reduce drug-related violence and illegal activity.”

Senior C, What would the rich Republicans do for house keepers and yard men if we stopped the border crossings by illegals?

We have two signs posted a may places along our border with Mexico. One says STAY OUT and the other one says HELP WANTED. Until we get rid of one of those signs, we can never enforce immigration laws.

Dear Hank, does this mean you are in favor of enforcing current immigration laws? Does this mean you are against amnesty for those in the United States illegally? Are you against the goals of La Raza? Personally I think your ... More ›
