TX Congressman Calls For More Troops At US-Mexico Border

(WASHINGTON, DC) – The only thing President Obama's deployment of 1,200 National Guard to the southern border will accomplish is press coverage for the Administration on border security, according to House Republican Conference Secretary John Carter.

"The President's proposal is about 24,000 men short of what's needed," says Carter. "And they need to be armed with orders to shoot if fired on. Many of our National Guard are combat veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan, and they know exactly how to put an end to these killings on our border. The next time a gunman raises a rifle in our direction these guys are ready and able to light ‘em up. Once that happens a couple times we’ll start to see some law and order again.”

The former Texas judge says assigning 1,200 troops to 2,000 miles of lawless border is a non-starter. “6,000 National Guard wasn’t enough when President Bush sent them in 2007, and 1,200 will do nothing other than provide the current Administration with a photo op.”

“President Wilson sent 100,000 National Guard in 1916 when violence spilled across our southern border under his watch, and got the situation back under control,” says Carter. “25,000 is a good number to start with now, but to suggest just 1200 shows a very disingenuous position on securing our border against armed drug gangs shooting our border patrol officers and now even American civilians on their own property. Seems like the only securing going on here is the political security of Presidents Obama and Calderon. We need to start putting the security of the American people back in the picture.”
