Bush to call for National Guard on border

WASHINGTON (AP) – In a move designed to win support for immigration reform from get-tough conservatives, President Bush plans to send thousands of National Guard troops to help secure the Mexican border.

White House spokeswoman Maria Tamburri had said earlier that Bush made clear to Fox that “the United States considered Mexico a friend and that what is being considered is not militarization of the border, but support of border capabilities on a temporary basis by the National Guard.”

I think that first quote about sums it up. This isnt about protecting national security or stopping the illegal invasion through our southern border, this is nothing but politics.

His speech will go something like “The speech will go something like “National guard on the border temporarily, blah blah blah, New border patrol agents, blah blah, comprehensive reform is needed, blah blah, guest worker program (AMNESTY), blah blah, we must act humanely, blah blah, Vicente Fox owns me, blah blah, god bless america.”

Why is our President justifying protecting our borders to the Mexican president? Why is he telling Vicente Fox that the Guard on the border is only a temporary thing?

The failure in chief may be igniting something he will be unable to stop.
