    Obama to Send Troops to Mexican Border

    President Barack Obama will send 1,200 National Guard troops to the Mexican border, an administration official said Tuesday, following calls from politicians in both parties to step up the fight against illegal immigration and border violence.

    The White House will also request $500 million to help fund more law-enforcement activities at the border, the official said.

    The moves come as the White House tries to garner support for an overhaul of U.S. immigration laws. Debate on the issue has become polarized following adoption of Arizona's new immigration law, which has been criticized by the administration.

    it is kind of interesting that after calling Arizona's new immigration law unconstitutional, Obama is sending troops to the border.

    I have no doubt that during his visit here last week, Mexican President Calderon asked Obama for aid with the drug wars taking place.

    Obama knows that most Americans would have a dim view regarding this, so I think it's being disguised as a front to curb illegal immigration. Once one of our troops gets shot by an alleged cartel, the citizens of the US will stand behind Obama as he sends several thousand troops into Mexico to go to war with the cartels.

    It's the only logical explanation.
