Why can't we use our National Guard Units to protect our southern boarders? This is what they were intended for. "NATIONAL GUARD"

Rotate them every 2 weeks instead of sending them to training camps for 2 weeks.

Simple, the Democrats have a large minority base, if they stop relatives from coming over the border they might lose votes-legal & illegal. The Republicans fear being portrayed as elitist white bigots trying to keep the "Hispanic man" down. We're the only country you can just stroll across the border, if caught-try try & try again-25+ million have made it-so can you

There are several factors that have to be considered before any form of defense is sent to a place. This makes it difficult for us to understand why the National Guards are not deployed to guard the southern borders of the country. This Arm of Defense is mostly deployed to areas that are suffering from a major disaster like hurricanes and flood.

i cant tell you why but i would assume since we can you them against our own country's citizens we should be able to use them against others.

The border is "open" because that is the way "they" want it. The Democrats get more votes and the Republicans get more laborers. We spend over $11 billion annually on the war in Afghanistan. Obviously, we have the military might. It's all part of the political game.
