Team Obama Orders Massive Deployment of 30 National Guard Troops to Arizona

Sheesh, what are you complaining about, Arizona? Obama has sent 30 members of the National Guard and had 15 warning signs put up. But no, that’s not enough — You just can’t please some people:

( – Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu said requests by Arizona law enforcement personnel and Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.) for 3,000 National Guard troops along the state’s border with Mexico have been answered so far with 1 percent of that number deployed there this week.

“We have a whopping 30 [National Guard troops] this week that are showing up,” Babeu told “It’s less than a half-hearted measure designed to fail.”

But the federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has placed 15 signs along a 60-mile stretch of Interstate 8 that links San Diego with Phoenix and Tucson warning travelers of drug cartels and human trafficking operations.

Thirty troops, or as Obama’s calling it, “The surge.”

How much help was Arizona to expect from an administration that just condemned their immigration law in a report to the UN Human Rights Commission? If anything, those 30 troops are there to keep an eye on Jan Brewer and to report back directly to Ban Ki-moon.
