You may ask “Has John McAmnesty called for troops to protect the Mexican border?”
The answer is, yes, he has. [Senator McCain calls for troops to be deployed along Mexican border, Mercopress, March 30, 2010]
Reasons for this may include:
- He represents a border state.
- He was running for reelection in 2010, and had to impersonate a patriot: see Pat Buchanan`s What McCain`s Tactics Teach.
- He just always calls for troops to be deployed, it`s automatic, he can`t help it.
But if you think for one minute he called for troops on the border to protect the United States from invasion, think again.
