As many of you know, I’m not a fan of having National Guard troops patrol the southern border, and not simply because Bill O’Reilly is for it (though that certainly is a factor), but because I have long believed that any actual deployment of Guard troops to act as immigration police would be more ostentatious than substantive—itself a good thing, because the first shooting of an unarmed illegal by a National Guardsman would do irreparable damage to the immigration reform movement and could put us at war with Mexico, to boot—rendering the whole toothless endeavor more trouble than it’s worth.
I was told last night by a Hill staffer that since National Guard on the border are unarmed, the Border Patrol in some instances is having to guard the Guard! So there may well be fewer agents actually patrolling the border because of the Guard deployment — and it’s at least worth an enterprising reporter trying to find out if that’s actually the case.
Perfect! Now if we can just get the Minutemen to guard the Border Patrol who are busy guarding the National Guard troops, we will have come full circle.
