Obama Sends Team To Texas To Assess Need For National Guard Deployment
by Shorty Dawkins
An article by Reuters states: “President Barack Obama has sent a team to Texas to assess whether a National Guard deployment would help to handle an immigration crisis at the Mexican border, White House officials told Reuters, having so far resisted Republican calls for such a move.
The team, made up of officials from the Defense and Homeland Security departments, departed Tuesday and will be on the ground through Thursday.”
At the end of the article it admits: “The meeting comes as the number of unaccompanied minors crossing the border into the Rio Grande Valley in Texas has begun to drop off.”
So, now that Obama has had his vacations, and will be finished with his latest fund-raising tour, perhaps he can attend to the business at hand. Or is this just another delaying tactic? Does he really not know the severity of the situation on our southern border?
The number of unaccompanied minors has begun to drop off. Obviously, it is time to take some perceived action. After all, sending a delegation of Defense and Homeland Security officials to “assess” the situation is taking action, isn’t it? Well, isn’t it? Of course, as another official stated: “There’s no foregone conclusion.” Meaning, most likely, nothing will be done. At least I’m not planning on holding my breath.
