    Experts Debate Wisdom of Troop Surge at Mexican Border

    Expert Questions Troop Surge at Mexican Border

    WASHINGTON – As President Barack Obama continues to mull returning thousands of National Guard troops to America's Southwest border, one expert says the surge is unnecessary – pointing to plunging apprehension rates of illegals, more U.S. Customs and Border Protection boots on the ground than ever, the lengthening border fence, enhanced electronic surveillance and increased cooperation by Mexico.

    Since illegal immigration is a federal matter, we should put the National Guard on enforcing those laws. We don't just want to stop more illegal aliens from coming in, we want to send back the ones who are here too.

    Put them on the border and in the interior to hasten the deportation of illegal aliens until they are all deported. This will allow immigrants who are following the rules to come in and free up that backlog. It's the prudent thing to do.

    The difference is their military on the border would allow illlegals to go ahead and cross the border...our military on the border would mean stopping all of their citizens from entering.
