As the border crisis continues to rage on, Obama has yet to even remotely come up with a solution for the problem he claims he’s not responsible for. As a result, the GOP is stepping in to fill in the many cracks of the Obama administration and seal up the border for good.
Republicans associated with John Boehner are set to introduce legislation in which they’re calling for our military to protect America’s southern border. They have also stated that if all goes to plan, Congress should be presented with the proposition before August hits.
According to Breitbart:
A working group of lawmakers appointed by Speaker John Boehner is poised to recommend deploying the National Guard, amending a 2008 law requiring a lengthy deportation process, bringing in temporary judges to reduce a legal backlog and new border security measures to the GOP version of an emergency spending bill planned for floor consideration before the August recess.
“We’ve got border patrol people trying to do a good job but they’re so overwhelmed by the number of people coming across that they’re taking care of children and filling out forms, and so we need National Guard to add more bodies to what’s happening at the border” [Rep. Kay] Grander said, adding that immigration cases need to be adjudicated much more quickly.
To be honest, I don’t see why Obama hasn’t made this move on his own in the first place. What we effectively have is an invasion of foreign nationals, and the National Guard – clearly described in their name – is there to protect our nation and her border.
