McCain to Obama: Send troops…

McCain to Obama: Send troops to border if you don’t like new immigration law – TheHill.com

“If the president doesn’t like what the Arizona Legislature and governor may be doing, then I call on the president to immediately call for the dispatch of 3,000 National Guard troops to our border and mandate that 3,000 additional Border Patrol [officers] be sent to our border as well,” McCain said at a news conference Friday in downtown Phoenix, according to a report in the Arizona Republic.

“And that way, then the state of Arizona will not have to enact legislation which they have to do because of the federal government’s failure to carry out its responsibilities, which is to secure the borders.”

McCain isn’t a paragon of virtue when it comes to immigration enforcement and reform (more precisely the lack thereof) but his support of Arizona’s pot shot at the broken federal system is more acceptable than Obama’s contemptuous disregard for people’s concerns about illegal immigration. But it’s not just the President that is the problem it’s the entire federal government for ignoring the responsibilities and duties to protect the border and citizens of this land.
