McCain, Kyl Announce a 10-Point Border Security Plan

During a press conference this morning, Sens. John McCain and Jon Kyl, both Republicans from Arizona, announced a 10-point border security plan for Arizona they say will fight illegal immigration, drug and immigrant smuggling and violence along the U.S.-Mexico border. Their plan, which comes on the same day that the Arizona Senate will decide on a controversial immigration bill, calls for the deployment of 3,000 National Guard troops to the southern Arizona border, the implementation of Operation Streamline, a program that has created a backlog of immigration cases and a rising number of immigrant detainees, and the completion of an unpopular border fence, among other measures.

During the conference, McCain said immigration reform is a top priority, but border security should come first. The Hill reports:

‘The lesson is clear: First we have to secure the border,’ McCain said in a press conference. ‘If you want to enact some other reforms, how can that be effective when you have a porous border?…So we have to secure the border first,’ he added.

Here’s the entire plan, from a press release:

1. Immediately deploy 3,000 National Guard Troops along the Arizona/Mexico border, along with appropriate surveillance platforms, which shall remain in place until the Governor of Arizona certifies, after consulting with state, local and tribal law enforcement, that the Federal Government has achieved operational control of the border. Permanently add 3,000 Custom and Border Protection Agents to the Arizona/Mexico border by 2015.

2. Fully fund and support Operation Streamline in Arizona’s two Border Patrol Sectors to, at a minimum, ensure that repeat illegal border crossers go to jail for 15 to 60 days. Where Operation Streamline has been implemented, the number of illegal crossings has decreased significantly. Require the Obama Administration to complete a required report detailing the justice and enforcement resources needed to fully fund this program. Fully reimburse localities for any related detention costs.

3. Provide $100M, an increase of $40M, for Operation Stonegarden, a program that provides grants and reimbursement to Arizona’s border law enforcement for additional personnel, overtime, travel and other related costs related to illegal immigration and drug smuggling along the border.

4. Offer Hardship Duty Pay to Border Patrol Agents assigned to rural, high-trafficked areas, such as the CBP Willcox and Douglas Stations in the Tucson Sector.

5. Complete the 700 miles of fencing along the border with Mexico and construct double- and triple- layer fencing at appropriate locations along the Arizona-Mexico border.

6. Substantially increase the 25 mobile surveillance systems and three Predator B Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) in place today along the Arizona/Mexico border and ensure the border patrol has the resources necessary to operate the UAVs 24 hours a day seven days a week. Send additional fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters to the Arizona-Mexico Border.

7. Increase funding for vital radio communications and interoperability between CBP and state, local, and tribal law enforcement to assist in apprehensions along the border.

8. Provide funding for additional Border Patrol stations in the Tucson Sector and explore the possibility of an additional Border Patrol sector for Arizona. Create six additional permanent Border Patrol Forward Operating Bases, and provide funding to upgrade the existing bases to include modular buildings, electricity and potable water. Complete construction of the planned permanent checkpoint in Arizona. Deploy additional temporary roving checkpoints and increase horse patrols throughout the Tucson Sector.

9. Require the Federal government to fully reimburse state and local governments for the costs of incarcerating criminal aliens. Start by at least funding the State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP) at its authorized level of $950 million.

10. Place one full-time Federal Magistrate in Cochise County and provide full funding for and authorization of the Southwest Border Prosecution Initiative to reimburse state, county, tribal, and municipal governments for costs associated with the prosecution and pre-trial detention of federally-initiated criminal cases declined by local offices of the United States Attorneys.

Arizona Taxpayers have past suspected where their hard-earned dollars were going? So the voters of Arizona had enough of their wages being appropriated to support the illegal alien occupancy and now changed the law. Being the first state just across the open border countless numbers of impoverished people have slipped past our thin undermanned line of Border patrol agents. In the last twenty years millions of circumvented our laws, to become a financial burden on every state in the union. This situation is not getting any better, but far worse as Democratic-Liberal influenced legislators have been offering even more welfare programs on a state level. Our government has failed to build the double border fence and Senators like Harry Reid, majority house speaker Pelosi have tried to sacrifice enforcement tools as E-Verify and 287 G police questioning program in different counties. Napolitano has cut budgets for the border patrol, ICE and other sections of the SAVE ACT. As for Sen. John McCain? How expeditiously he has changed his mind abouth the invasion. First he was all for AMNESTY. Now he's pushing for another anti-illegal immigrant plan. We just can't trust any of them?

The list is long of Pro-illegal immigrant politicians and does not contain just Democratic-with Liberal thinking, but Republicans as well. What America need is–TRUE–moderate conservatism and neither parties are doing what's best for the American people. We already have the 1986 immigration laws on the books and doesn't need being rescinded. If it had been enforced in the first place, we wouldn't have this increasing population of illegal immigrants. We do and should allow highly skilled workers who we don't have to support, but we don't need just anybody who can sneak across our open border. As the border remains wide-open in many places criminals are also appearing in increasing numbers, as well as foreign insurgents, who are being assisted by drug cartels and gang members. The police who are in short supply along the border region, believe that this that drug dealers were responsible for the death of Robert Kurtz on his cattle ranch.

All those politicians implicated in keeping the border unsealed or involved in the pro-amnesty movement must be ejected during primaries or any upcoming election. Learn more about AMNESTY, overpopulation growth, your money paying to support foreign nationals at NumbersUSA. Tell your government, we don't need another financially devastating amnesty at 202-224-3121 Remember taxpayers money spent on illegal immigrants annually, would pay for our foreign wars.

It sounds proactive, but what happened to being fiscally conservative?

You described the border fence as “unpopular”. That's quite an adjective. Did you mean that the border is unpopular or that the fence is unpopular? Believe me when I say that among the folks who live in ARIZONA the fence is NOT unpopular. Your misinformation is worse than any information.

Greetings!
The 2010 United States Senate Race for Arizona comes down to:

Who do you believe?

With less than 100 days left until the Primary Election:

Do you believe the multi-term Senator who says he has changed?
Do you believe the multi-term former Congressman who says he has changed?

Or

Do you believe Jim Deakin who says neither the Senator nor the Congressman has changed? They are both lying to us all again.
For 6 and 7 election cycles the Congressman and the Senator have been telling the voters of Arizona how important it is to secure Arizona's southern border. Even with 6 years of a Republican lead House, Senate and Executive branch, they failed to secure our borders. This year they are telling you they have CHANGED.
The Senior Senator has a new 10-point plan. What has he been waiting for? Why has this plan not been implemented already? Why has it taken 30 years to come up with this 10-point plan? We should not elect him to another 6-year term to get our borders secured.

The Congressman wants to introduce a new Law. The same law he failed to get passed by Congress in 2005. How will he get the law passed through a Democrat controlled House, Senate and Executive branch? How many earmarks will it contain? We should not elect him to a 6-year term hoping enforcement of this new law would be more stringent than the hundreds of existing laws.

If you believe, as does Jim Deakin, that neither of these politicians has changed, then we need your donations, your support, and your vote.

Arizona's delegation to the U.S. Senate has an opportunity today. Jim Deakin would filibuster the nomination of Elena Kagan, today. Jim Deakin would filibuster and vote against every U.S. Supreme Court Nominee presented by the President until this President and his cabinet enforce the current laws, including finishing the border fence.

Arizona does not need a “Last Line of Defense” or a “Hope I've Changed” campaign.

Arizona needs a strong frontline in Washington D.C.

Jim Deakin needs your support, your vote, and your donations in-order to defeat the incumbent politicians who have driven Arizona to this quagmire.

With less than 100 days until the election, time is of the essence make your most generous contribution today. http://www.jimdeakin.com

I am 47 yrs. old,What about increasing the age limit on becoming a border patrol agent?
There are a lot of us changing careers,and i think that increasing the age limit will give the agency more dedicated agents if we knew we can put in 20 yrs.,and retire.

If I’m not mistaken I do believe the we have a border already and to add an additional 700 miles wouldn’t make much difference.This entire 10-point plan is crazy talk unless seeing that it creates jobs however also costing over 1.2 bill to do so. Which tree will this money be coming from? Sending Mexicans immigrants to jail for up 2months is a little bit much, wouldn’t you try to leave?.I don’t think the solution is in beefing up the border control but maybe in assisting in stability efforts in mexico. Senator McCain and Senator Kyl great job showing another beautiful example of misappropriating funds.

This is nothing more than denying entry to those seeking jobs that beckon to them NOW that they fear will be gone tomorrow. First thing is to provide a way to enter and work legally. Once the legal entry is simpler and easier and much faster,closing the border is easier since those crossing have some reason to fear legal entry.
