    Arizona Gets Border Soldiers; None for Texas
    Perry's request goes ignored for more than a year

    After repeated requests for help, President Barack Obama has agreed to send 1,200 National Guard troops to Arizona's border with Mexico. But so far, the president hasn't responded to Texas' request for assistance.

    Gov. Rick Perry has sent letters to Obama, Defense Secretary Robert Gates and Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano requesting National Guard troops for the Texas-Mexico border.

    Almost a year and a half after the first letter was sent, Perry hasn't received an answer.
    Obama's Maginot Line.
    Doesn't Obi remind you of an arrogant French President?
    Perhaps he should be called Monsieur Obi.

    We all know those troops he sent are nothing but a political ploy. Throw some breadcrumbs at people asking for bread.

    Yep. We have been told the 1200 NG is for observing and reporting. They won't engage. How in the heck is that going to help secure the border. Better head count on who crosses?

    Probably to observe and report about the fascist Arizona police oppressing the future Democratic voters as they sneak across the border...

    Well those Texans always make these claims about being independent and fiscally responsible and not needing federal support. Put your money where your mouth is, Texas.

    Something needs to be done to secure our southern border! If it's not the illegal immigrants, then it's the drug cartel gangs...either way, the United States needs to solve the problem.

    Allowing Mexican President Calderon to stand in front of Congress and the American people, and blast Arizona and their anti-immigration law is insulting as hell! And President Obama, bless him, just stands there next to Calderon and bobs his head in agreement. WTH?

    The National Guard needs to be stationed in every state that borders Mexico. The border wall/fence project should continue until the entire border is partitioned from Mexico. The government needs to allow the Guard troops to engage illegal immigrants crossing over to the U.S. and the troops should have the authority to use their weapons if they come under attack or are in some other danger.

    Tough times call for tough actions. Israel learned that the hard way back in the late 60's and 70's during the airplane hijacking era. Israel put into place really tough airport security measures. Nothing gets hijacked from Israeli airports today.

    We, as a nation, cannot live in a politically-correct society, when the rest of the world is not. Some people just cannot be reasoned with. Some nations just don't want to be diplomatic. The American people need to stiffen their spines and do what must be done to correct some of the tough problems afflicting this nation today. Let's find solutions to the problems instead of merely treating the symptoms.
    It matters not how strait the gate,

    Quit taking our money and we'll take care of it. Until then, give us the troops

    An earlier version of this report incorrectly stated that Arizona had received a response to its request for National Guard troops. However, the White House said it has not decided where along the southwest border the troops will be deployed. NBC DFW regrets the error.
    oops.

    FWIW, I think the argument is that if the federal government is going to take precedence over state efforts to regulate immigration (as it does now), then it's the federal government's obligation to provide the necessary manpower to enforce those rules. If the fed gov were to give Texas authority to completely control immigration within its borders, I'm sure they'd be willing to do it on their own.

    Texas is hardly a massive net contributor when it comes to tax dollars. Being from Minnesota I'm afraid I'm going to have to reject this proposal.

    Would that be the same Gov Perry that was calling for Texass to secede from the United States?


    What an asshat.
