Kerry calls for swift boats

To help on the border, John Kerry is swiftly calling for more agents and more boats.

John Kerry's Rapid Response Amendment

Tomorrow John Kerry will offer an amendment to the Immigration Reform Bill to add 1,000 additional Border Patrol agents – bringing the total up to 3,000 new agents this year – plus add an additional 100 helicopters and 250 power boats to secure America's borders. Kerry's amendment would allow the Secretary of Homeland Security to deploy up to 1,000 additional border patrol agents if the governor of a border state declares an international border security emergency and requests additional agents.
