    if 55 troops can have this much of an effect, just imagine what the full six thousand will do. I was skeptical as to the effect that troops would have on the border. but these results would seem to vindicate all those who are in favor of troop deployment and strong borders detering illegal immigration.

    Especially if they had loaded weapons and hadn't been told never to use them.

    It might all work until the immigrants figure out the lack of power the Guard has.

    Then they will get even bolder and make up for the slight initial decline of numbers.

    Do we think that down in Mexico they aren't aware, through radio and tv, that it's being said they're "scared off" and that our National Guard is there only to provide support services?

    This is mostly political spin and what isn't spin is going to be a very temporary effect.

    26,994, in the first 10 days of June

    Is that right? 3000 illegals per day DETAINED??

    Right, so figure ten thousand "undetained." Do the math. The volume of people entering the U.S. illegally is beyond staggering. That's a flow-through rate of three million a year. (And yet we're told there are as few as eight million illegal aliens in the U.S.--flapdoodle! Try 20 million--and up! They don't want us to know just how bad this problem REALLY is.)

    "Flapdoodle"? That's pretty strong language there Bro!

    55 National Guard troops show up, can't touch anybody, and the trend is that some 700/day immigrants decided not to cross.

    6000 troops might dissuade as many as 700/55*6000 = 76,000/day not to cross.

    BTW - I'll take my chances with the US Army reputation over the Mexican Army any day.
