Video: Trump Announces the Military will be Guarding the Border
You've probably heard about that caravan of illegals heading straight for the U-S-of-A. Not only are illegals not taking the hint about them not being welcome here anymore, they're announcing their arrival ahead of time. Not to mention marching over in giant herds.
Well, the Trumpinator has just the solution for their douchery. Take note, potential fence-jumpers. You're no longer going to be playing with run-of-the-mill Border Patrol guards. Now, you have to contend with the full force of the United States Military. For reals:
Trump: "Until we can have a wall and proper security, we'll be guarding our border with the military." https://t.co/N2eYl9QOKu— Washington Examiner (@Washington Examiner)1522774408.0
President Donald Trump said Tuesday that the U.S. military will be used to guard the U.S.-Mexico border.
“We are going to be guarding our border with our military. That’s a big step,” Trump told Reporters gathered at the White House. “We cannot have people flowing into our country illegally, disappearing, and by the way never showing up for court.”
The president’s comments appear to take aim at current U.S. policy which requires border agents to catch then release family units who arrive at the borer from noncontiguous countries.
He also said he had spoken with Secretary of Defense James Mattis about the use of the military to guard the border.
The military already has a buttload of hardware, training in repelling foreign invaders, and they're ready to roll at a moment's notice. Everything about this plan is a colossal win.
Leftists will no doubt complain about Trump's move. They'll throw around accusations of "Nazi" and "Hitler" like a midget in a bar fight. Some leftist conspiracy types will declare us a police state and start stockpiling freeze-dried kale and Fancy Feast for their fallout shelter. Unfortunately for their narrative, securing borders is exactly what militaries are built to do.
That glorious wall Trump's been promising us is still nowhere in sight, but this move is certainly a step in the right direction. The occasional border agent driving by in a Chevy Tahoe doesn't really deter illegal buttmunches. Once those illegals are staring down an entire batallion of US Army Infantrymen gender non-descript members of the infantry, methinks they might turn around and go back home.
