Homeland Security Considering 'Military Installations' at US-Mexico Border
There's a significant crackdown on illegal immigration under Trump. To the dismay of leftists everywhere (see Democrat Senator: I Opposed Illegal Immigration because I Represented White People and Artist Puts Giant Mexican Baby Portrait at Border to Promote Illegal Immigration…). But while the big beautiful wall is still being debated, Homeland Security has had to get creative. They are considering military installations.
Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen confirmed on Wednesday that military officials are looking into building their own barriers along the Southwest border.
Nielsen's comments come days after President Trump floated the possibility of using Pentagon funds to pay for his promised border wall, a move that was met with criticism from Democratic lawmakers and some veterans groups.
"What [Trump] meant is there are some lands that the Defense Department owns right on the border where we see illicit activity. We're looking into options for the military to build wall or military installations on the border."
This is all in the planning stages it sounds like. Light on details. Also, how much it will cost. Which the left will care about as they write checks to Planned Parenthood and think tanks researching why lesbians pack on the pounds. Gotta prioritize spending, don't you know.
But in lieu of the big beautiful wall, if the bases are going to be built anyway, along the southern border is as good as a place as any. It's kind of like if you want to install a second television, might as well put it in the kitchen. Or if you're going to build a slide, might as well put it by the pool. If you're going to build a booby trap, might as well be by the front door to discourage solicitors. Or the neighbor kids from stealing your Prime packages, screw those guys. You're getting the picture.
Double-duty. It's not just for ziplock freezer bags holding bulk-purchased ribs. Sorry, the TV in the kitchen thing got me all hungry.
