New GOP Border Security Bill Coming Today

There are 8 comments on the poe.house.gov story from Sep 29, 2010, titled New GOP Border Security Bill Coming Today. In it, poe.house.gov reports that:

Rep. Ted Poe (R-Texas), a member of the conservative Republican Study Committee in the U.S. House, is planning to file a border security bill later today that could bring 10,000 National Guard troops to the U.S. border.

The bill is different from current legislation in that it requires the federal government to send 10,000 National Guard troops to the U.S.-Mexican border upon a U.S. governor's request instead of leaving the deployment to the president's discretion. It also allows the troops to serve under the command of that governor, something Poe calls a "more realistic approach." The bill allows for aviation support and authorizes the these troops to, among other things, conduct patrols of the border.

Finally GOP is doing the right and important thing and i hope this is not a political ploy to win votes, both sides need to come together and make this a reality as a commitment in insecuring the border.

If you are white you are just a salt water vvetback. Don't forget to go to church on Sunday like you always do to learn how to be a better racist. Feel sorry for your kids learning your same white racist bitter culture. May your daughters avoid dating a black guy, which is very likely to happen. We don't want a black man to have his life ruined like your white obese wife ruined yours.

What ever and who ever it takes to get the border secured and the job done. There are really supposed to be 6,000 NG there right now, but we all know that 1,200 are on their way. At last count as of Sept 10, 2010 the first 532 arrived. Their purpose is to be seen and act a deterrent, however the 10,000 proposed by Rep. Poe would be there for actual enforcement and not window dressing. It maybe political posturing, but at least he's on record and can be called on the carpet for not following through. He has a good record of doing what he says so far from researching him.

You are so right. I noticed Perry is running campaign propaganda ads sayin that he is going to fix the border security.
What a bald faced lie.
The a$$hole has had more time than he deserves to fix it and has (as usual) done nothing.
I am sure there will be some dumb a$$e$ out there that wii believe his lieing a$$.
After the election you wont hear anything more about it from Slick Rick.
Go ahead, believe him, you always have in the past but it never happens unless it's one of his buddies wanting something, then it will happen.
