THAT Border is RIGHT HERE! It's NOT in the Middle East where a threat can
come from just like on 911 and other times when or National Security was
breached by Foreign Terror. Regardless of how you feel about sending our
brave military overseas, I sure hope we can at least secure our own border
that IS RIGHT HERE! I would be just fine with NOT sending our troops to
the Middle East. BUT.... Please explain to me WHY we would not Guard The
Sanctity Of Our Own Border From Harm, the criminal element there and the
Terror That Can and will come across?

How many troops do you think we should send into Mexico?? Inquiring
minds want to know.
Mexico? What about Canada, where the border is even less protected?
Poor ol' Wormy is close to that one and he's worried about Mexico. Not to
mention our largely unprotected coastline. I wonder what it is about Mexico
that gets people's imagination working overtime? The staffer who wrote that
piece has a dubious background, but we also have Congress Critters selling
Iraqi Extremists Promising Attack Could Slip Through Mexican Border
June 18, 2014 8:19 AM
SOUTH TEXAS (KRLD) - There are concerns that the Islamic State of Iraq and
Syria - an extremist group that has already captured several large cities in
Iraq and is bearing down on Baghdad - could be responsible for the next 9/11
style terror plot on U.S. soil.
"This jihadist group ISIS and it's leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi have promised
direct confrontation with America, " says Congressman Ted Poe (R-Houston).
"He is looking forward to that day and he has said that publicly, we should
believe him when he says that. These folks hate everything about the United
Sen. Lindsey Graham, (R- South Carolina) echoed Poe's remark, saying on CBS'
"Face the Nation" Sunday that U.S. officials have warned the next major
attack on U.S. soil could emanate from the region.
"The seeds of 9/11s are being planted all over Iraq and Syria," Graham said.
"They want an Islamic caliphate that runs through Syria and Iraq.and they
plan to drive us out of the Mideast by attacking us here at home."
And Poe thinks the likely way ISIS will get into the U.S. to commit a terror
attack will be through the Texas-Mexico border.
"Of course the way they would come to the United States would be through the
porous border with Mexico. The drug cartels will bring people into the
country no matter who they are - for money," says Poe. "Everyone in the
world knows that the border between the United States and Mexico is
Poe thinks the way to prevent such an attack would be to secure the border.
"And we should secure the border by putting the National Guard on the border
so people don't cross into the United States without permission."
He adds, "National security does not start overseas; it starts at the border
between the U.S. and Mexico."
In Texas, plans have already been laid out to decrease the surge of illegal
immigrants and try to secure the border by deploying the DPS, but Governor
Rick Perry's office says there are still not enough resources.
"The issue here is inadequate federal resources on the border," says Lucy
Nashed with the Governor's Office. "We are working with the Department of
Public safety to identify options that can be taken immediately to address
this crisis. This is a federal issue under federal jurisdiction, and while
we will continue to commit resources to keep Texas communities safe, the
ultimate solution needs to come from Washington, D.C."
"Texas has already put hundreds of millions of dollars into personnel and
resources to fill in where the federal government has failed. Gov. Perry has
signed on to a letter with Lt. Gov. Dewhurst directing DPS to conduct a
border surge operation in the coming months. This letter is awaiting
approval from Speaker Straus."
There's obviously only one logical answer. Obama has to send troops to
protect Wormy's house so he can sleep at night. Or maybe a shrink with
elephant tranquilizers for his hysterical xenophobia.
