Texas National Guard Troops Will Be Deputized As State Police Officers For Border Patrol Duty

These New Revelations Prove Rick Perry Is Not Backing Down From Obama On The Border – Western Journalism

.

Remember the laughter and snarky comments from the Left and its Ministry of Information when Texas governor Rick Perry activated one thousand Texas National Guard soldiers for duty at the southern border? “Ha ha, they’ll just stand around like wooden Indians and watch ‘undocumented immigrants’ walk by,” we heard from people Beltway liberals who hate conservatives, especially conservatives with a drawl.

The Left is about to get another lesson about underestimating those who live in “fly over country.” There is a local website (callthecops.net) that is reporting what Perry’s plan actually involves. Contrary to what has been postulated – even by some uninformed GOPe types – the Texas National Guard will not be standing around directing illegal aliens to the nearest aid station. They will be deputized as state police officers who will have the same powers as other sworn officers. Moreover, Perry has ordered the construction of holding camps modeled after military barracks where illegals who walk over the border will be housed until their case is adjudicated.

This plan has every chance to succeed. Those who understand the Guard and Reserve services know these units are very likely to have substantial numbers of troops who are police officers in civilian life. The transition to police work in a military uniform will not be difficult.

Given today’s headlines that tell of a new plan from Barack Obama to defeat America by flying illegal aliens directly into our country, it is likely that he believes Governor Perry has developed a powerful plan to check his attacks.

So what are the possible outcomes of this plan? If it is left to stand, it will slow the flow of illegal aliens until a better solution can be devised. It will show other governors how to handle this attack from Obama.

If it is challenged in court, it will be immediately brought before the full Supreme Court as a 10th Amendment case; and in view of Obama’s many recent losses in the Court, this could be another loss for him. It is hard to see how Obama can get this Court to declare the 10th Amendment unconstitutional.

Nevertheless, if all else fails, Perry’s plan will certainly lay a heavy chilling effect on the illegals who want to walk in and register as Democrats to get free stuff for life. It will slow the flow.

Governor Rick Perry’s plan is not a permanent counterattack to Obama’s attacks on America, but it is a short term win for America!

Mexican Soldiers Cross Into U.S. And Hold Border Patrol Agents At Gunpoint; Obama Ignores Incident

Mexican Soldiers Draw Guns On U.S. Agents – WorldNetDaily

The U.S. government is taking no action on an “unbelievable foray” in which two Mexican soldiers came across the border near Sasabe, Ariz., and held U.S. Border Patrol agents at gunpoint for half an hour, according to a government watchdog organization.

Judicial Watch said that after the 35-minute “tense confrontation,” Jan. 26, the Mexican soldiers retreated south across the border “as if nothing ever happened, and the Obama administration just let it slide.”

Judicial Watch, which keeps an eye on government behavior, such as the mega-million dollar vacations for the Obamas, said that incident was , which obtained government documents with details of the incident.

According to a Border Patrol foreign military incursion report and a letter from Border Protection Commissioner R. Gil Kerlikowske, the Mexican soldiers retreated when the U.S. agents drew their weapons and summoned assistance.

The report said the Mexicans “misidentified themselves to border agents, claiming to be pursuing drug smugglers.”

Judicial Watch said, however, the Mexican soldiers aren’t chasing drug smugglers but instead are protecting cartels as they transport their cargo into the U.S. through the desert.

The incident, said Judicial Watch, is just the latest in a long string of incursions by the Mexican military into the U.S.

Records from the Department of Homeland Security show Mexican military incursions occur often and go unpunished by the U.S., Judicial Watch said.

The problem has only gotten worse over the years.

DHS documents reveal 226 incursions by Mexican government personnel into the U.S. occurred between 1996 and 2005. In 2007 alone, there were 25 incursions.

The fact that guns were drawn makes the January incident one of the most serious incursions in recent years, the Times said.

The report said Mexican embassy officials denied soldiers were involved. But they changed their story later to say the camouflage-wearing personnel were “part of a counter-narcotics operation.”

Mexican officials told the newspaper soldiers from both countries occasionally cross the border, and “both countries understand that this is something that happens as part of normal activities.”

U.S. officials in the Mexico City embassy said the incursions by the military are “unintentional,” and Kerlikowske announced no action was needed.

But Judicial Watch previously has documented Mexican police officers who had been warned not to enter the U.S. crossed the border and “arrested” two subjects.

During that incident, the officers also “threw rocks at a group of people.”

Judicial Watch described another previous incident in which a resident of Arivaca, Ariz., saw five men land a helicopter and get out, dressed in black and wearing masks and body armor.

“They had the word ‘Mexico’ on their sleeves and on the back of their shirts was some lettering starting with the letter ‘A.’ Three of the men had automatic fire rifles and the other two were armed with pistols.”

They eventually left.

Judicial Watch also cited another case: “A few years ago police in Phoenix, Ariz., reported that three members of Mexico’s army conducted a violent home invasion and assassination operation that killed one person and littered a neighborhood with gunfire. The Mexican military officers were hired by one of that country’s renowned drug cartels to carry out the deadly operation, according to Phoenix police officials, who confirmed the soldiers were armed with AR-15 assault rifles and dressed in military tactical gear.”
