Napolitano: It’ll Be a Couple of Months Before We Make Our August 1st Deadline for Border Troops

When I heard that August 1st was the target date for National Guard troops at the US/Mexico border, I thought they meant August of this year, but that was a naive assumption.

June 3:

Mrs. Brewer said Mr. Obama promised to send administration officials to Arizona within a couple of weeks to work out details of the president’s plan to deploy up to 1,200 National Guard troops on the U.S.-Mexico border. Mrs. Brewer said she expects most of those troops will go to Arizona, which is ground-zero for the flow of illegal immigrants coming into the country.

July 19:

The National Guard troops assigned to the Arizona border will begin to arrive Aug. 1, and the federal government is sending other reinforcements to stem the flow of illegal immigrants and narcotics entering the state, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said.

August 11:

In an exclusive interview with Fox 11 News on the south lawn of the White House, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano says it will still be weeks before National Guard troops are on the U.S.-Mexico border — troops the White House said would be there ten days ago.

The White House says the lengthy delay is due to the logistics of a complex deployment, but it’s a safe bet that if Governor Brewer announced that, effective immediately, the state was going to defy Judge Bolton’s blockage of parts of the law, Arizonans would have troops coming out of their ears within a 12 hours.
