I've suggested that every member of congress be required to spend at least 1 week with a low level ground pounder BP agent doing exactly what the agent does. DHS should be moved to the border states and no gated communities for em either. Let them live in the same neighborhoods that the average citizen lives in. You can bet there would be some changes.

Although the NG troops along the SW border are basically stationed there for show only and serve very little purpose being there since they're not allowed to really do anything, the obamanation wants the NG gone long before the 2012 election lest some open border treason lobby ethnocentric hispanic group complains about the troops and maybe costs him a few hispanic votes. With the obamanation it's all about getting reelected and if that misfortune for America happens the wraps unfortunately would really come off of the obamanation's far left agenda to ruin America.

Reyes makes his statement and I guess he thinks nobody will see right through it. I hope the people of El Paso can see through it and vote his azz out.....Funny how a veiled statement by a minority slides through the media with little attention.

And be sure to write "BUCK OFAMA" on all your one dollar bills. That's only if you're not on the government employment nipple or on welfare and you have any left.

In what way do you feel that the National Guard could protect you HERE in America??

I didn't realize that U.S. citizens were in need of MILITARY protection in their hometowns.

I think the LAST thing we need is more surveilance and control over us BY the government !!

Be careful what you WISH FOR!

Place our military on our borders and shipping ports and air ports....They should defend us not all other nations.

"A deployment of 1,200 troops was "not enough to begin with, although they are doing as good a job as they can," Rep. Ted Poe, R-Texas, told CNN. Poe said the United States has "operational control" of only 44 percent of the Southwestern border."

Let me get this straight. Americans are x-rayed, strip searched, en mass, just to go to see grandma by plane.(P.S., with all of TSA's poking and groping, they have yet to catch anyone...notice?)
Yet, every terrorist/illegal alien who wants to come here has just gotten a free pass...as if they didn't have one already. WAKE THE FACK UP AMERICA!!!!

I can't wait for all of those unemployed troops from Iraq to come home! OWS will be kiddie stuff!!!
Let's see which jobs illegal aliens can have that Americans won't do!

What cash? The Republicans took it all. What do you think budgets cuts mean? Republicans created Homeland Security, turned it into their favorite pork barrel, and trample all over everybody's rights with it. Then as soon as the Democrats are elected it becomes thier favorite target so they cut it's budget, and then complain when HS has to cut back on operations.

Sorry, that's how they conquer us. ALL of them are in on this!!! This has been setting up for several administrations, dems and repubs. There is no difference between the two! We are being run by corporate interest and lobbyist!!! If you still think there is a difference between the parties, I have a bridge to sell you!

Guess that rules out all government contractors, police, firefighters, teachers, government employees, Medicare, Medicaid recipients, doctors, nurses, hospitals who accept Medicare and Medicaid payments etc. If you think about it, we are all getting government welfare and THAT should stop, right? Oh, you probably think only you are paying taxes, but no one else is. LOL
