President Trump Deploying Thousands of Troops To The Border


President Donald Trump is not playing any more games when it comes to securing the Southern border.

If the Democrats are going to not give him the funding for the wall and if they are going to fight a national emergency there is one thing they cannot fight.

The president as Commander in Chief has the right to deploy the military as he sees fit.

And he sees fit to send thousands more to the Southern border to secure it, Fox News reported.

The deployment will raise the total active duty forces to approximately 4,350.

“Additional units are being deployed for 90 days, and we will continue to evaluate the force composition required to meet the mission to protect and secure the southern border,” the Pentagon said.

Roughly 2,400 active duty forces are currently at the border. A large number are going home and being replaced by the new deployment.

The announcement comes as a congressional committee seeks to reach a deal on border security funding to avert another partial government shutdown.

  1. I won't vote if the wall isn't built. I don't care if he puts 10k troops down there. The next president will just remove them, as he did with the former larger deployment. Build the wall and require e-verify or get ready to not be elected... if that may be baked into the cake.

  3. i would like to see a light corps about 50,000 line troops with appropriate support units to include Air AC-130's and A-10s, Armor both M-1s and Bradleys Strykers Army Aviation units Helicopters to include Blackhawks and Apaches and Field artillery units setup to shell Drug Smuggling Cartels all along the border. Coast and navy small craft in the Rio Grande (reactivate the brown water navy) Nothing crosses the border without being intercepted. All so called refugees get returned to their country all expenses to be deducted from their foreign aid. Those that refuse to go back Send to an island above the Arctic circle or in the Aleutians. Give them tents and drop off supplies once a month make sure the island have Brown bears or Polar bears. NO FENCES NO GUARDS NO WEAPONS OF ANY KIND. Annually go to the island and ask if anyone wants to return to their home country. Those that do the cost of their upkeep and transport will be deducted from their countries' foreign aid if any. Those that don't stay there.
