Real Security (Except at the Border!)

In the Dem's now hard-to-find "
Real Security" plan, the Democrats are proposing to:

Immediately implement the recommendations of the independent, bipartisan 9/11 Commission including securing national borders, ports, airports and mass transit systems [Emph Added].

Sounds pretty good, right? Well, look at how Democratic activists promoted their muscular national security stance at a Dallas immmigration protest yesterday (Courtesy of Michelle Malkin):

To the casual observer, the political party party brandishing this placard would not seem too concerned with securing the southern U.S. border. It is surprising that the Texas/Mexico border even appears on this sign at all, actually.

Perhaps this shameless pandering to latino voters is a shrewd move for the democrats; the political calculus, no doubt, is to make major in-roads in the latino voting bloc in the next two elections. However, for those discerning voters who care about things like national security, this placard illustrates why the democrats conistently trail behind republicans when it comes to defense issues.
