Bush’s Version of Homeland Security

Send Border Guards to Iraq

 The State Department is recruiting 120 Border Patrol agents to send to Iraq, prompting sharp criticism from two border-state governors who argue the U.S. needs more help on its own frontier.

In a letter to President Bush, Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano and New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson said the move “makes no sense,” the Tucson’s Arizona Star reported.

The criticism comes as the federal government prepares for a phase-down as early as July of National Guard troops stationed along the border.

The troops were deployed last year as part of Bush’s “Operation Jump Start,” which put them in a strictly supportive rule while new Border Patrol officers were hired and trained.

 Of course it makes no sense.   Bush’s notion of Homeland Security with an Open Border never made sense.
