image for Obama to send extra troops to bolster US-Mexico border; Americans panic at potential loss of cheap labor and decent taco stands
Can the Obama administration survive a taco-less environment?

US President Barack Obama is to request an extra $500b in funding and send up to 120,000 troops to help secure the US-Mexico border, US officials say.

The National Guard troops would be sent until the US can recruit and train additional officers and agents to serve there, an administration official said.

The move follows pressure from US border states for action to help curb illegal taco importation and force middle-class Americans to pay full wages to maids and gardeners. How major corporations and agricultural giants will survive this remains an open question, as the majority of workers at companies as diverse as 7-11, Jack-in-the-Box, taxicab companies and nearly a fourth of the Fortune 500 have historically been unpaid and overworked illegal immigrants, primarily from Mexico and parts south.

Last week Mexico's president urged the US to work with him on such issues, or face a land filled with unwashed floors and dishes, nanny-less children, weed-filled gardens and lousy tacos.

Whitehouse spokesmen were unavailable for comment, most of them out enjoying their last meal of decent Mexican food.
