From Fox News:
President Obama told Senate Republicans Tuesday that he's read the controversial Arizona immigration law and is concerned it would allow for discrimination -- but is planning to deploy up to 1,200 National Guard troops to the U.S.-Mexico border to allay security concerns.
An administration official confirmed to Fox News that Obama plans to request $500 million for "enhanced border protection and law enforcement" and deploy the National Guard troops as needed.
The official said the National Guard would be used to "provide intelligence; surveillance and reconnaissance support; intelligence analysis; immediate support to counternarcotics enforcement; and training capacity until Customs and Border Patrol can recruit and train additional officers and agents to serve on the border."
From Fox 5:
Bloomberg says countries that welcome immigrants prosper.
He says the U.S. has had some "disgraceful" and "stupid periods" in which it tried to close its borders.
Added Bloomberg: "Fortunately, sanity prevailed."
Wow, talk about twisting the truth! We aren't trying to stop immigration. We are trying to prevent a breach of security in a post-9/11 world. Remember 9/11? It was the event that made you mayor. We were thinking of making you president at one time, too, but fortunately, sanity prevailed.
