Think We Need That Border Fence Now?? (Updated)

Why don’t we have the pollsters ask the National Guardsmen that were overrun at their border observation post if they think the border fence is a “winning issue” today:

A U.S. Border Patrol entry Identification Team site was overrun Wednesday night along Arizona’s border with Mexico.

According to the Border Patrol, an unknown number of gunmen attacked the site in the state’s West Desert Region around 11 p.m. The site is manned by National Guardsmen. Those guardsmen were forced to retreat.

The Border Patrol will not say whether shots were fired. However, no Guardsmen were injured in the incident.

The Border Patrol says the incident occurred somewhere along the 120 mile section of the border between Nogales and Lukeville. The area is known as a drug corridor. Last year, 124-thousand pounds of illegal drugs were confiscated in this area.

The Border patrol says the attackers quickly retreated back into Mexico.

It will not be long before that story changes from ‘the Guardsmen retreated’ to ‘the Guardsmen were killed in a hail of gunfire’.  Beyond the fact that it’s an embarrassment to have our National Guard troops forced to retreat on US soil is the fact that they did not have the means, the backup, and quite possibly the permission to fight back, and make their attackers either retreat or pay dearly for their excursion over the border.  What’s worse: these armed incursions are nothing new, and they put our servicemen, border patrol, and citizens that live or work near the border in peril.

But whatever, the folks in Washington say it’s not a ‘winning issue’ to be in favor of border security first or a border fence.  In fact, some say it’s even ‘racist’ to consider securing the border from illegal crossings. Fine, just don’t tell that to these guardsmen or the widow(s) and orphans of the next American citizen that winds up dead when the bullets start flying.  Makes perfect sense.  Besides, why should our border patrol and guardsmen fight back, since our government will send them to jail for doing their jobs.

Update:  As if on cue, leave it to Sylvester Stallone to go to Mexico City and say “We don’t need no stinkin’ fence”. Moron.
