So Illegal Immigration is a Problem after all – Obama to send troops to U.S.-Mexican border

Don’t get to excited, this is just another mid-term election ploy to make voters think Democrats are concerned about border security.  Polls show that Americans consider border security a problem.  After bad mouthing the Arizona law that was out into place to deal with Federal Governments lack of response… Obama decides to cave to pollsters

The White House will send up to 1,200 National Guard troops to the U.S.-Mexico border and will ask Congress for $500 million to boost border security, officials said Tuesday.

Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, Arizona Democrat, who along with other Arizona lawmakers had made the request, announced the move on her Web site. A White House official, speaking on condition of anonymity, confirmed the plan.

“Deploying additional Guard as part of the president’s strategic and integrated approach will provide immediate enhancement to the unprecedented and ongoing border protection and security efforts,” the administration official said.
