Obama Stops National Guard From Going To Arizona and Other Updates

Guard troops border deployment delayed


Arizona National Guard troops won't be in position to enforce U.S. border laws by Aug. 1, guard officials said.

The department of Homeland Security and Defense announced 10 days ago more than 500 troops would help with border interdiction by Aug 1.

It isn't known when any troops will be deployed to enforce border security, a National Guard spokesman told The Arizona Republic.

"We won't have any units deployed by Aug. 1," said Lt. Valentine Castillo, a public affairs officer. "We don't yet know when troops will actually arrive."

U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano previously wrote in a guest column for the newspaper that 524 Arizona National Guard troops would be assigned to the area.

A spokesman at the National Guard Bureau in Arlington, Va., told the newspaper statements previously released about the deployment were "over-interpreted."

Court denies request for expedited hearing on Arizona immigration law


A federal appeals court has denied Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer's request for an expedited hearing on the state's controversial immigration law. Instead, the case has been scheduled for a hearing during the first week in November.

Brewer had wanted public oral arguments in the case for mid-September. The Justice Department had urged a slower schedule, and the 9th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals agreed in a brief order issued Friday evening.

Arizona filed its appeal Thursday, asking the court to lift U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton's preliminary injunction on the immigration law.

State Sen. Russell Pearce, author of the law, said he foresaw a protracted legal fight from the beginning.

"I wrote it to go to the Supreme Court," he said before the ruling came down. "I'm begging for that fistfight at the Supreme Court. We will win in a 5-4 decision and finally settle this problem."
He added, "My message to the judge, is uphold the Constitution. Uphold states' rights. This is a battle of epic proportions. This is the states versus the central government."


Wild Thing's comment.......

So, the Feds won't protect the border -as promised- but yet they don't want civilians to act to protect the border and their own private property! What's wrong with this picture? This tyranny has got to stop!

500 troops is a joke there is 1900 miles of border. Or 1 trooper about every 4 miles thats imossible. More than likely they will be sent UN-armed. So whats the point.

The Governor can't let them win on this. She has to take this all the way to the Supreme Court to shut up obama. We must win this one, National Security depends on it.

Maybe it's time for the Governor to call up the Militia.

A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

You'll notice it says "free state", not free Federal Government.

Once again the "Leader of the Free World", steps up to the plate and strikes out, looking not swinging.

Sarah Palin was on Fox news saying that Gov. Brewer has more "cojones" than the Fraud in Chief.
She is right on the mark.

Mark is correct in pointing out the futility of the number of troops and the amount of space.

Another case of the Federal Govt. shooting their mouth off and not being able, or in this case refusing, to deliver.

Mark, wow I had not even thought of it that way.
"Or 1 trooper about every 4 miles.." saying it that way makes it even more real.

I hope and pray Gov. Brewer stays strong.
