This is what many have been suggesting.

Quote:
PHOENIX Dean Martin launched his gubernatorial campaign Wednesday with a promise to use armed National Guard troops to militarize the international border.

“What’s the difference of guarding the Arizona border and guarding the Afghan border or guarding the Iraqi border,’’ the 35yearold state treasurer said. “It’s a very similar role.’’

And Martin said the move actually would help the soldiers.

“The training that they could obtain in helping us secure our border is very easily translated to possible deployment overseas,’’ he said.

And as the recession continues to deepen; judging by our latest unemployment numbers along with the drug war SoB--------the hue and cry to close/lock at least our southern border will only increase.

Too: with the latest Democratic loss this past Tuesday (in Massachusetts no less ); Obama, Pelosi, et al would be wise to heed the growing clarion call for action against illegal immigration----------or, there will be social unrest.
