The National Guard is headed for the Mexican U.S. border.http://www.nationalguard.com/ President Obama in his infinite wisdom or, from reading the Nation’s leading poll’s supporting Arizona’s immigration law( http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/obama_administration/daily_presidential_tracking_poll ) is sending troops. It is not so obvious that it is for immigration control, as the Mexican Embassy point out that troops will be on guard against the illegal flows of weapons and bulk cash into Mexico, which provide organized crime with its firepower and its ability to corrupt.
In a statement from Embassy of Mexico – http://portal.sre.gob.mx/usa/index.php?option=news&task=viewarticle&sid=297
Regarding the Administration’s decision to send 1,200 National Guard servicemen to the US Southern border, the Government of Mexico trusts that this decision will help to channel additional US resources to enhance efforts to prevent the illegal flows of weapons and bulk cash into Mexico, which provide organized crime with its firepower and its ability to corrupt.
Additionally, the Government of Mexico expects that National Guard personnel will strengthen US operations in the fight against transnational organized crime that operates on both sides of our common border and that it will not, in accordance to its legal obligations, conduct activities directly linked to the enforcement of immigration laws.
Mexico is determined to continue working on its side of the border to enhance the security and well-being of border communities, and to deter and dismantle organized crime and its links to drug trafficking and human smuggling.
As part of our joint strategy in the fight against transnational organized crime, there are actions that our two governments have undertaken together, and there are other measures taken independently by Mexico and by the US within their respective territories. In this regard, the Mexican Government fully respects the sovereign decisions of the US Government, but underscores that joint responsibility must continue to underpin our joint efforts in rolling-back transnational organized crime operating on both sides of the border.
As the commander-in-chief, I believe he is supposed to be in charge of the Nation’s Military, not states National Guard troops. Others are of the same opinion:
“There is no modern precedent for Congress to direct the president to deploy troops in the manner sought by the Amendment,” National Security Adviser James Jones and Homeland Security and Counterterrorism Adviser John Brennan wrote to Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl Levin (D-Mich.)
“It represents unwarranted interference with the Commander-in-Chief’s responsibilities to direct the employment of our Armed Forces and thus infringes on the President’s role in the management of the Total Force,” they wrote.

We have U.S. Servicemen and women on active duty on U.S. soil in violation of Posse Comitatus. If we are breaking protocol anyway, why not get it over with and send the military to secure the border with Mexico? “…to protect the American people and their way of life!”
The Joint Task Force Civil Service mission statement, http://www.jtfcs.northcom.mil/ reads:
JTF-CS anticipates, plans and integrates USNORTHCOM chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and high-yield explosive (CBRNE) consequence management operations, and when directed, establishes command and control of DOD forces in response to a CBRNE incident to assist local authorities in saving lives, preventing further injury and providing temporary critical support.
As much as I am against active duty troops on our soil, if they are going to be here, then utilize them here. Don’t wait for another terrorist act to occur. Post 9-11, the security of our nation remains at risk. JTF-CS if so ordered would restore at least some sanity to our border, while of course pissing Mexico off. Tough. Rumor has it that there are plenty of Russian troops on U.S Soil, perhaps they’d lend a hand too. http://www.resistnet.com/forum/topics/alert-russian-troops-in-us-for
Our borders are being overwhelmed by Mexican people crossing into the greatest country on earth, illegally. We are fighting wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. North Korea and South Korea are playing a deadly game of tit for tat, and China’ aggression towards the U.S. has been pretty clear while it remains our largest debt holder. Oil is spilling by thousand’s of gallons every day.
Where is our commander-in-chief?
Obama will travel from Washington to Chicago on Thursday for a long weekend with his family, as planned. From there, he will go to Louisiana on Friday and return to Chicago that evening. http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5hIfwUDeBxbANKX2GATS6YOiMTnJQD9FU1EK00 excellent commentary on the President’s movement and decisions can be found at http://thisweekwithbarackobama.blogspot.com/. The President’s minute by minute location also with commentary can be found at http://www.politico.com/politico44/
Besides the multiple crisis we are battling, this weekend is Memorial Day, the day we honor our nation’s dead military personnel. The president previously confused Memorial Day with Veteran’s Day. “Someone might want to explain to the President that it is a little difficult to say “thank you” or send care packages to the deceased.” http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2257872/posts
On Monday, Obama is scheduled to participate in a Memorial Day ceremony at Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery in Elwood, Ill. In Obama’s absence, Vice President Joe Biden will participate in the customary wreath-laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery outside Washington.
Obama will however make it back to Washington in time next week to honor Paul McCartney, who has sacrificed so much for the freedoms we enjoy notes Michelle Malkin. http://michellemalkin.com/2010/05/25/ap-obama-to-skip-arlington-memorial/
Obama may be President, even though he still has not provided a birth certificate proving he is eligible. Still, it is pretty un-American for The President to not lay the traditional wreath at Arlington Cemetary. What can you expect from the man who couldn’t bother to put his hand on his heart during The Pledge of Allegiance?
