Yeah, especially if you've had to work with them downrange.
Yeah, none of those guys get enough training. We throw equipment at them and then wonder why, with inadequate and infrequent training, they don't perform.
Just got back from two weeks of leave.
If the National Guard troops are soley augmenting in a administrative way, freeing up QUALIFIED people to patrol the border, I may, personally, be ok with it.
I would be uncomfortable is the National Guard were used to enforce immigration laws. They are not qualified for that role, and in general, it should make most uncomfortable to have the U.S. military patrolling within the borders of this country armed.
Just an idea....the federal government could actually FUND and MAN the agencies trained and qualified to enforce immigration laws....hopefully that isn't thinking too far outside the box!
I would have a problem with the MILITARY being involved in legal actions like enforcing immigration....something called Posse Comitatus comes into play there.
I would have said that....but I didn't want to throw the USCG under the bus.
No need to worry about that - it's already happened.
