    Three of our National Guard troops, while in uniform, using Govt. issued vehicles, were caught smuggeling ILLEGAL ALIENS into the United States!!!!! For a price of $150 per person!!! This is TREASON against this country for personal gain.:fire:

    http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/special/immigration/4881430.html

    My questions are these:

    How long will the trial take?

    Will they be stood up before a wall and SHOT, or be hung by the neck untill DEAD.

    And why was there no outcry from the press?:cuss:

    Sheesh.

    I'll certainly agree that having NG troops engaging in smuggling illegal alients is despicable and intolerable, but treason? Nope. It's not treason.

    Oooh, I'm shocked. Sleasy people are everywhere. Show them a way to make a few bucks and they sell their souls to the Devil.

    Loose Definition?

    A more common definition of treason might be "betrayal of trust" where one is entrusted with the security of one's nation.

    It fails the strict Constitutional definition, but it's clearly a major trust failure.

    Members of the armed forces who assist others to infiltrate our (their) country? I would have a hard time viewing them as other than traitors.

    Strict definition notwithstanding.

    In a constant state of confusion.
    After this I am rethinking my support of foreign nationals being allowed into our military.

    OT: $150, they could have gotten better than that.

    They broke the law they will be tried and punished in accordance to the law. You can call it a betrayal of trust but any member of the military (or LEO) who commits almost any kind of crime, betrays the trust that we as society have placed in them, as well as the trust of government to which they serve.

    Bringing in illegal immigrants is however a far lesser crime and breech of our faith then rape, murder, selling weapons to to criminals or terrorists, smuggling narcotics, and a number of other crimes.

    Why the anger?

    They should be prosecuted under the UCMJ to the fullest extent by Military court martial. With the added bonus of the country then being in a time of emergency which, I think, adds the "in the face of the enemy" to the charges.

    I don't believe the U.S. government has declared war on Mexico or any other country south of our borders, therefore there is no legal "enemy".

    The Definition of "Enemy" is so nebulous these days any decent JAG officer could make that stick.

    Yeah, it's not like they neglected to vet the trespassers for MS 13 or al-Qaeda affiliation.

    I'm not saying that these were all good people or that they might not pose a risk. Look at the crime for what the crime is not just possible effects that might of happened. Plus I seriously doubt Al queda would just Hop up into a bunch of US military vehicles to be taken off to who knows where across the border. And even if they would, we probably would have heard if that had happened.

    Well,
    There is a "War on Drugs"
    a "War on Crime"
    a "War on Terror"
    and a "War on Poverty"

    Do they count? For determining an enemy?

    This I have no problem with.

    This I do, :mad:

    Dang straight. These "illegal aliens" are trying to make a better life for themselves and there families, nothing wrong with that. They cross a border where they have a high chance of dying or being caught and sent to jail. How many here if they had a chance to make a better life for themselves and family at the risk of death would do it?

    lol, XD
