Washington, Nov 18 -
The Obama Administration plans to withdraw National Guard troops from the Texas, New Mexico and California borders by the end February under a new Southwest security plan, even as turmoil in Mexican border cities grows, according to documents obtained by The Washington Examiner.
A letter sent to various members of the Texas Congressional delegation from Texas' Gov. Rick Perry's office says, "In February, 2011, the Texas, New Mexico, and California National Guard forces that were deployed to the border in September, 2010, under President's Obama's Southwest Border Augmentation Plan, will have 30 days to complete a total draw down of forces."
The roughly 550 troops will have the month of February to redeploy back to their units, Texas Congressman Ted Poe told The Examiner. Troops would not be pulled off the Arizona border under the plan, and about 100 of the troops would re-deploy there from other states, officials said.
Poe received the letter today. His office confirmed

But he is sending TANKS to Afghanistan to continue the slaughter of the Taliban.
The Obama administration fails to realize that the greatest current threat to our national security is along the US border with Mexico.
You should visit El Paso Texas ask around among the locals, there is a war going on down there, and it is spilling across the border.
Obama believes he can salvage his political objectives through appeasement and Amnesty for illegals, as long as he can get more votes for democrats in the future, the sacrificed security will be worth while.
If he was a real American president he would gradually pull out forces from Afghanistan and Iraq and focus his time and efforts on border security, immigrations reforms and related issues, and above all on the failing US economy for the remainder of his term... IF he wanted the support of the majority of Americans... Obviously he doesn't.
The Federal government is required to provide two essential things along the US border region, and that would be to pick up and deliver mail, and to secure the border.
They have failed miserably at both.

What more could DHS do, after all they put up warning signs in AZ?
These people could care less of this country. All they care about is money and power. The only reason I can fathom (for their inaction) is $$$$$$$. Be it secret accounts in Acapulco, or campaign cash.
