Trump Calls For Military Forces On U.S.-Mexico Border

And this all stems from Fox and friends

Even if border crossing are down


In the five months ending in February, apprehensions of unaccompanied minors were down 36 percent from the same period a year earlier, while apprehensions of families were down 46 percent.

does he understand you can not deploy the Military.. the national guard may be used

Active-duty personnel face strict limits on their ability to operate on U.S. soil. An 1878 law bans federal troops from enforcing domestic laws


Fox and friends spoke about a “caravan”referring to the group as an “army of migrants marching to America” and a “small migrant army marching toward the United States.”

Yet troops have been at the borders many times in the past hundred years.

BTW - I do think it is poor use of resources to have federal troops there other than a technical / support role but it has been done.

It has been done .... no one is disputing that National guard troops have been deployed

he was told his Base thinks he is weak on immigration ... So this is his answer .. more abuse of power his actions are for himself not for the country

I wish Trump was around when the Irish invaded at Ellis Island. Things would be a lot different.

No, no, no. we’re 30… 30, three zero.

Unfortunately, all immigration was legal given what those poaching buggers have done to our striper populations.

If they were Northern Europeans all would be fine, the US has given preferential treatment to White Protestants for 150 years.
Preferably Norwegians.

They're fleeing violence and political repression in their home country. Doesn't that give them a right to petition for asylum under our legal immigration process?

The military action is just a PR stunt.

seems like an odd way to ask for asylum, though I think they have to petition for refugee status first?..demanding open borders and citizenship of the world?

The list of demands doesn't seem that crazy does it? I'm thinking of demanding the same thing from the Trump administration.

Trump “will be signing a proclamation to that effect today.”

Nielsen added that plans were still “being finalized” but that officials were “working with all haste” to implement the measure. “We do hope that the deployment begins immediately,” they are clueless on how this works they watch to much TV


Syria war: Trump 'persuaded not to pull out immediately'

not sure if he understands military cannot act as a police force and make arrests or use force.

and what happened to not telling other countries what we were going to do before doing it?

so if the folks standing in line at Ellis Island decided they didn't feel like waiting and hopped a fence or crawled under or ran for it...no problem....is that what you are saying?
