Tom Tancredo: National Guard at Mexico border will pull weeds, wash cars

Shocking news: Immigration critic Tom Tancredo's not impressed by President Barack Obama's plan to send 1,200 troops to the U.S.-Mexico border.

In two tweets on his Twitter feed, Tancredo writes, "Govt of Mexico just issued following statement: 'The GOM expects that Ntl Guard..will NOT...conduct activities directly linked to the... enforcement of immigration laws.' Guess its back to car washes and weed pulling for NG."

At least the border will be tidy.
