It's Not The Job Of The US Military To Enforce The Law
...and other myths

Now that our National Guard troops are being pulled off the border a year early, I can't help but think of the battle cry of the anti-protect the borders crowd... It's not the job of the military to enforce the law!

Oh really? Allow me to give just two examples where the military was called upon to enforce the law;

1. The US Army called on to fight the Indian Wars from 1849 until the end of the 19th century. Technically, that should have been a combined effort of various state and territorial governors, and their respective militias, combined with agents of the Department of the Interior who should have done battle with various warring tribes during that time frame... not the US Army. But it was the Army that was called to enforce the law.

2. Back in the old days when the US Mail was the literal circulatory system for this country's economy, why was it that in 1921, when robberies and fraud beset the very same mail system. President Harding was forced to call out the Marines. By Presidential Order, Marines were dispatched to post offices, railroad stations, postal trucks and trains.

Marines were ordered to "shoot to kill any person or persons who attempt to molest the mails or interfere with a mail train". For four months the Marines guarded the mail and not one piece of mail was lost. Again in 1926, Marines were sent to guard the mail and, as in 1921, Marines achieved the same results.

By definition, our country's being invaded. Due to the incompetency of the Bush Administration to enforce the immigration laws (in other words; allow the Border Patrol & Friends to do their job) it looks as if, yet again, America's military is going to have to bail us out. That is if our leaders in Washington will ever allow them to.

ADD ON!!

And speaking of illegal aliens -- with all this talk about illegal aliens committing crimes, such as the recent execution-style murders in Newark, many have stated that "undocumented workers" are no more or no less apt to commit crime than American citizens... I say BUNK!

You want to know what percentage of illegal aliens break the law? 100%. The second they broke this nations immigration laws, they became law-breakers.

I think the Marines should go back to guarding the mail. Mine has taken the scenic route, via UPS.

Another problem with the illegals is that more than a 'representative' sample of them are criminals, fleeing from their own countries (where real men would defend their daughters the RIGHT way--high-speed lead.)

Anyhow, the National Guard is under law exempt from the whole "posse comitatus" thing, therefore it can enforce the law, as was done during the '60s and '70s (Kent State and things like that, you know).

Histor,
I'm focusing on the regular forces, vice the various state NG units.

There really should be no debate about this.

They broke the law, and deserve the appropriate punishment.

The problem lies wih polititians seeing their potential votes being deported back across the border.

It's quite simple, really:

-Build a wall on the border. It worked for China, it will work for us. Mobilize the Guard to "hold the line".

-Allow local law enforcement to detain immigrants who have broken the law, like any other criminal

-refuse bail to these criminals (especially those suspected of heinous crimes) as they are an obvious flight risk

-Make the support a governor gives to "santuary cities" an act of treason. Which it is.

-mobilize the IRS to involve themselves with businesses dodging taxes by hiring illegals. Make these acts punishabe by reflecting upon the owners' credit score. That will make them think twice.

Problem solved.
