Border Security is core responsibility of the US government and is not "domestic" law enforcement per se and, thus, is not subject to Posse Comitatus. Note that the National Guard in State service is also not subject to it. Governor Perry went one step further and commissioned his mobilized Guardsmen as State Police Officers. They have the power of arrest. Had he not done so they could have detained but would have had to call a police officer to arrest.

A retired Special Forces operator with a couple of detail tours to the CIA described the system to me in about 30 seconds - some time ago. Al Qaeda, IS or other branded jihadists gravitate to Yemen transship to any one of several places in East Africa, take the bus across the continent, fly or tramp steamer to South America - with Bolivia and Ecuador being the transfer points of choice - then by jitney, bus, train or other undocumented means up the Pan American Highway, and finally into the USA across the Rio Grande or the Arizona, New Mexico desert wilderness. The numbers they can bring in this way are almost limitless the way this administration has created a superhighway of jihad from our southern border. And note that all the segments of the journey are virtually without opportunity to document the journey. The numbers of Humint resources necessary to keep track of this threat are not ever going to be available. Securing the southern border very tightly is the only and the most efficient way to do it.
Deficit - that FY 09 shortfall was NOT Bush's - the Stimulus Plan was passed after Obama took office and it alone was more than the portion of the deficit from Bush's budget.
He will win this lawsuit. And if the government is ignorant enough to appeal, this will be another 9-0 smackdown for the administration - even the leftist judges have demonstrated they have a limit beyond which they won't go on the rights of the First Amendment.
You're an anti-Semite - remember when Sharia comes to town that won't be enough to protect you.
You must have been educated in the wonderful liberal public school system - it's Hearst.
Ahh Maybe it's because they want to protect their people.
This dipsh1t Hayes is lying through his teeth. The final bill wasn't the House bill or the Senate bill - it was a "gut & go" cobbled together by a very small circle of staffers in Reid's office in the dark of night - we all know it had zero Republican input - what almost no one knows is that they didn't allow input from most Democrats either. Nancy Pelosi was telling the absolute truth when she said, "We have to pass this bill to see what's in it." She had never seen the bill before she brought it before the House for a vote.
On the international level what Dr. Williams says is absolutely right. This country has not ever learned how to properly use our (former?) position as the unassailable international hegemon to wield power judiciously for our and the world's benefit. The last President to do that effectively left office 105 years ago. Theodore Roosevelt would have told the Mexican president Sgt Tamoreeshi on the US side of the border with all his possessions including his firearms with compensation for the time you've detained him or every Mexican national in this country will be returned to Mexico. TR did almost the same thing with a Morrocan warlord. "This government wants Perdicaris alive or Raisuli dead." Mr. Perdicaris was returned quickly in fine health.
Well said. Severity of punishment didn't work - in 18th century London you were at highest risk from a cutpurse or pickpocket at the public hangings of such violators. The two things that deter crime are certainty and swiftness of punishment. If the violator is caught and tried quickly and is immediately jailed it does deter crime.
