    It is my understanding the guard is there to help with the job of the boarder agents who are to busy babbysitting.

    How noble of you Buzz.....of your nearly 7000 posts you've done that on a very regular basis. None that I can recall were ever aimed at Dems however......I can only assume therefore that in your view current policies are purely humanitarian and in no way a ploy to gain political advantage with a rapidly growing minority at the expense of the nation.

    I'm interested in your response to RK

    In-State Tuition for Undocumented Students for Texas. BTW he was tore up for this in the R presidential primary. This is something the D's like to forget. Maybe this program should be stopped because it costs the tax payers over a billion dollars per year in Texas. 12 million is pocket change.

    That makes some sense, since the BP has to leave their regular border duties to attend to the incoming. Also read that the cartels are using other border crossings for their activities since the BP has been forced to put so many people at the TX crossing points.

    Doesn't the military have capability for mobile hospital set-ups? Or FEMA?

    No, I'm kinda busy trying to make a living. I should be training with my pro all day today but he had something come up, otherwise POTUS would have never crossed my mind today.

    What would I do? Not sure, but I don't think putting the national guard along the border will stem the flow. How do other countries handle it when refugees, sometimes by the millions flood across their borders? This problem pales in comparison, at least so far.

    When I saw this picture from Hannity's twitter feed, all I could think is, Perry is trying to repair the damage he did to himself on immigration during the last presidential primary season. A right wing politician can never lose with his constituency by putting on a cool hat, pair of stylish sunglasses, a flack jacket, and looking like a tough guy next to a gun.

    Sorry, I don't fee obligated to point out my disagreements with Democrats here. Clearly the right has all the representation it needs here on POTUS, you all don't need my help...

    Other countries set up a tent city, and call in the help of the UN and Doctors without borders. Provide care, but never send them into their school systems and welfare systems.

    A good President would get on TV and tell everyone to not bother to try to sneak in because you will be returned to your home... they would explain the correct way to immigrate and get on a list...

    but we have a leader who only wants the redistribution of wealth, as long as it does not affect his way of life and family.

    That's the funny thing about the proponents of redistribution. They always want to redistribute someone else's money.

    I see the estimated cost of this deployment per month is now up to $17 million. X 12months=$204 million per year.
    there's no good reason to fatten up a retriever.
