It’s gonna be a media bonanza

Lawmakers are expecting the White House and Mexican President Felipe Calderon to announce a revised two-country plan aimed at addressing the increasing drug violence along the border region when the two heads of state meet next week.

The meeting comes as several members of Congress also say they’ve heard rumblings that President Barack Obama is inching closer to sending National Guard troops to the U.S.-Mexico border region, though none could confirm that to definitely be the case.

A spokesman for the White House said Obama was still considering whether to send National Guard troops. He emphasized that “the administration has dedicated unprecedented manpower, technology and infrastructure resources” to the region.

“The president is firmly committed to ensuring that our southwest border is secure,” said Nick Shapiro, a spokesman for the White House. “The administration continues to evaluate additional law enforcement options as well as the use of the National Guard, as needed, along the southwest border.”

In the midst of a renewed focus by Congress on the issue of border violence, a bipartisan group of 17 House lawmakers from the southwest region sent a letter late last month to Obama calling on him to deploy National Guard troops to their home states to combat the growing violence.

Next week Congress is planning to continue its heavy focus on the escalating levels of violence, drug smuggling and illegal gun running along the U.S.-Mexico border with hearings flanking Wednesday’s state dinner in honor of Calderon.

The Senate Judiciary subcommittee on Human Rights and the Law starts the week on Tuesday with a hearing on drug enforcement and the rule of law in Mexico and Colombia……

  5. Univision did a Friday night special program on Illegal Immigration where they slammed Obama, Reid and Pelosi as political pimps for LYING to Latinos over immigration reform.

    Obama and the Dems are going to see how precious the Latino vote counts in November when they stay home because the GOP will have a field day this year’s midterm elections.

  6. Obama is well aware of this…as with George Bush…..

    The issue is toxic…..both Republicans and Democrats have not figured away to get around the hard right feeling on the issue…

    Both Bush and Obama are aware that something must be done for the immigrants here…But both are in the same position….

    They are powerless to get thru the rights insistence that EVERY one of them immediately pack up and go home….which is impossible

  7. Some Latino politicos are losing their patience on Obama for being too slow on immigration reform.

    I’m predicting Latinos will use a retaliation tactic by STAYING HOME and not voting at all in the midterm elections, which will make the GOP happy since looking more and more like a GOP landslide year again.

    The House is GONE in November and I’m keeping saying it too.

  12. I actually was referring to the fact that he can say he got tuff on immigration with predator drones, but I agree with the wars as well.
