Jan Brewer on the border: We need more boots on the ground


>>WE ARE PUTTING THE NATIONAL GUARD AND MILITARY AT THE BORDER BRDER BORER BORDER, WE ARE BEEFING UP THE BORDER PATROL WHO HAS DONE A FANTASTIC JOB, ICE HAS DONE A FANTASTIC JOB, AND WE WILL TAKE CARE OF THAT SITUATION. WE NEED A WALL. WHETHER YOU ARE REPUBLICAN OR DEMOCRAT, WE NEED A WALL.>>A NUMBER OF GOVERNORS IN THE AREA AGREE, ARIZONA IS THE LATEST TO APPLY 225 NATIONAL GUARD MEMBERS FROM THEIR STATE TO THE BORDER, OREGON, MONTANA, CALIFORNIA ARE HOLDING OFF ON THIS. THE FORMER ARIZONA GOVERNOR, GOOD TO HAVE YOU BACK. NOT EVERYONE PARTICIPATING. MAYBE YOU CAN EDUCATE THE GOVERNOR ON THE PROCESS HERE. DOES THE PRESIDENT YOU ASK OR DOES IT JUST ASSUMED THAT ALL STATES IN THE AREA OF PARTICIPATION WERE ALL STATES EVERYWHERE PARTICIPATE.>>THINK THAT MOST GOVERNORS WOULD RESPOND TO THE FEDERAL AUTHORITY THAT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT HAS IN REGARD TO OUR BORDERS, AND WHEN PRESENT TRUMP TOOK REAL STEPS TO SECURE OUR BORDER AND CALLED ON THE GOVERNOR’S TO ENACT THE NATIONAL GUARD, THAT ONE WOULD THINK THEY ALL WOULD RESPOND LIKEWISE. WE ALL KNOW, AS GOVERNORS, WE ARE A SOVEREIGN COUNTRY AND WE NEED OUR BORDER SECURITY. IT’S VERY DISAPPOINTING TO HEAR THAT THERE ARE GOVERNORS THAT WILL STAND DOWN, THEY ALSO TOOK AN OATH TO UPHOLD THE SAFETY OF THEIR CITIZENS AND THEY ARE NOT DOING THAT. IT’S QUITE DISTURBING TO THINK THAT THAT’S THE WAY THEY WOULD TREAT THEIR CONSTITUENCY. IT’S WRONG AND THEY JUST SIT THERE, SITTING ON THEIR HANDS, DOING ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. IT’S IMPORTANT AND IT’S GREAT THAT HE HAS DONE THAT. WE WILL GET RELIEF. PRESIDENT TRUMP IS DELIVERING ON HIS CAMPAIGN PROMISES AND I THINK OVERWHELMINGLY PEOPLE ON BOTH SIDES OF THE AISLE ARE VERY SUPPORTIVE OF IT.>>WELL, NOT EVERYBODY. IN THE CASE OF OREGON AND MONTANA IN CALIFORNIA, I DO WONDER WHEN PRESIDENT OBAMA HAD COMMITTED TROOPS TO THE BORDER, I DON’T KNOW WHAT THE IMPETUS WAS AT THE TIME. MAYBE YOU CAN EDUCATE ME. YOU DID PRODUCE TROOPS AT THE TIME SO IT DOES BEG THE QUESTION WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE HERE.>>WHEN PRESIDENT OBAMA DEPLOYED THAT THE TROOPS BE SENT TO THE BORDER, IT REALLY MAKES A BIG DIFFERENCE. THE FACT OF THE MATTER IS WE NEED MORE BOOTS ON THE GROUND AND TO HELP THE BORDER PATROL. THEY COME IN AS SUPPLEMENTAL BODY AND THEY CAN DO JOBS WITH THE BINOCULARS AND NOTIFY THE BORDER PATROL AND THEREFORE WE ARE CATCHING A LOT MORE THAN WHAT WE DO WHEN WE DON’T HAVE THE BOOTS ON THE BORDER. WE GET ALL THE DATA WHICH IS SURPRISING TO ME, WE BASE IT ON THOSE WHO ARE APPREHENDED. IT’S NOT JUST IMMIGRANTS THAT ARE COMING UP HERE FOR A BETTER LIFE. THE LITTLE BIT AND A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO ARE COMING HERE FOR NO GOOD. WE SHOULDN’T HAVE TO TOLERATE IT. NEEDS TO BE SECURED. IT’S NOT JUST ARIZONA. TRY TO GO MEXICO. YOU CAN’T GET IN.>>WILL SEE. THAT IS THE FIRST OF WHAT COULD BE UP TO 4000 TROOPS

  1. President Trump should just put the regular army and marines and not depend on these despicable democrat states.

  2. START KILLING THEM. DON'T LET NO BODY BROADJUMPER. KILL KIDS WOMEN and MEN SOUTH OF AMERICA. president Fudge Packer BARACK OBAMA send them for his Turkey SHOOT. BARACK OBAMA KILLED our People in America. Now America going to KILL people coming here for Americans good. No drugs dealers raper's or murders

  3. Border security is critical to our economy and security. Using National Guard in the interim is a prudent action. In the meantime we need a border wall which would be comprised of different types of walls depending on what is needed based on the terrain and other social and environmental factors. We also need hand-in-hand a revision of the immigration laws and policies. States that do not share a border should be prepared to assist in the rotation of troops. Command and Control would probably be best implemented if the troops were Federalized under Title 10. This would also take it out of the rogue Governors hands like California and the California National Guard could be utilized. Those Governors who claim sanctuary status are a shame to America and the citizens they serve. They need to get on board with the rest of the country. Like many other projects the Government attempts there's always the risk of wasting taxpayer money. Hopefully this will not happen with immigration and border security. We need the most bang for the buck while still accomplishing the mission and taking care of our border security folks. America has a lot of work ahead of her on many other issues. We need to be financially responsible.

  4. We need our borders safe from gangs, from drug runners, from gun runners, from human & organ traffickers. It is not JUST illegal aliens. There is much more to it.

  5. Gov. Brown in CA may be holding off with publicly responding on the National Guard because he knows he's already in deep doo doo with his own state. Cities and counties are revolting against his stupid sanctuary city and state laws (and it only just getting started), and if he states publicly that he's going to withhold the National Guard from CA (when CA's own southern border needs this help), then he knows he's as good as gone. As far as I'm concerned he and his ilk are already gone in November, but I think he's afraid to put another nail in his own coffin.
