    Default Obama signs $600M border security bill into law

    I'm curious to to learn how the PRF will spin this one


    Obama signs $600M border security bill into law

    WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama on Friday signed into law a $600 million border security that will put more agents and equipment along the Mexican border.

    Obama signed the bill in the Oval Office alongside Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano. The measure will fund the hiring of 1,000 new Border Patrol agents to be deployed at critical areas along the border, as well as more Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents. It also provides for new communications equipment and greater use of unmanned surveillance drones.

    Some Republicans, including Arizona Sen. John McCain, say that while the legislation is a start, it falls short by not dramatically increasing the number of customs inspectors along the border and not funding a program that charges illegal immigrants with a low-level crime.

    Great! It looks like Obama reads the papers.
    Nothing like a groundswell of public opinion, low approval ratings, and an upcoming election to get your attention.

    Very good. More agents and equipment at the border can do nothing but help. I just wish we could find a way to backcharge the $600M to Calderon.


    And this sounds encouraging.

    I am glad he has done something to help secure the borders but it is just a start with much more needed.

    I believe the rest of his plan goes something like this:

    1. Secure borders
    2. pay a fine and go to the back of the line
    3. pathway to citizenship which includes free government housing, free government healthcare, free government run school sytems, free government food stamps, all the government cheese you want, etc...

    All we ask in return is your vote even by absentee ballot and if you could include your other 19 family members also for their votes that would be much appreciated.

    How about enforcing the immigration laws that we have now? Why didn't he do this to begin with? Why did he wait almost 2 years?

    Why is he ALWAYS spending more money?

    How's that ultra?

    You mean instead of filing lawsuits against states like AZ for trying to do exactly that?

    Weren't you asking a few weeks back about how to sneak your friends Mexican born fiance into America so they could be together?

    Looks like you better step up the smuggling operation before things tighten up at the border.

    This is how we'll know he wants to really secure our borders. He'll also drop any notion of amnesty if he's being honest about this. Time will tell. I suspect he's seen the upcoming month's unemployment numbers and realized without putting a band-aid on something, his approval ratings would drop even faster than they've been dropping.

    While I applaud any move he's put forth in the right direction, I'd prefer to have had all the stimulus moneys spent on securing our borders and enforcing our current Federal Immigration Laws and this paultlry $600M spent where they put those stimulus gagillions. America would've been far better already for that.
    The best things in life aren't things!

    Maybe you should go back and find the post that says anything that resembles that, but I can tell you now you won't anything even close to me asking about how to sneak my friends Mexican born fiance into America. Fact is if that is what my friend wanted to do, he already knows how to do it. When the time comes she'll be coming to America legally.

    It's no wonder your way of thinking is so messed up. Your recollection of what you read is really twisted.
