About Friggin' time ..... :pissed:

President Donald Trump said he is currently having discussions in his administration to deploy military resources on the southern border.
Making his remarks during a lunch meeting at the White House with the presidents of Baltic nations, as Gen. James Mattis sat beside him at the table, Trump said, “I’ve been speaking with Gen. Mattis. We’re going to be doing things militarily,” adding, “Until we can have a wall and proper security, we’re going to be guarding our border with the military.”

The president did not detail specific plans for policing the border but appeared eager to make it happen after Democrats stalled progress on his long-promised border wall.

“That’s a big step,” Trump said. “We really haven’t done that before, certainly not very much before.”

Trump confirmed in an afternoon press conference on Tuesday that he does intend to use military force to secure the border.

“We are preparing to have the military to secure our border between Mexico and the United States,” Trump said when reporters questioned him for more details. He said he would be meeting with Mattis and other security officials to discuss the issue soon.

The omnibus spending deal included less than $1.6 billion for border structures but an impressive $700 billion for the Pentagon in FY2018.

In a 2011 interview with Bill O’Reilly on Fox News, Trump signaled interest in using the U.S. military to stop illegal immigration. “You put soldiers on that line,” he said. “Do you have a choice? They are coming over and they are climbing over a fence and there’s nobody within 10 miles.”

yeah, all the soft porn kings at CNN, MSNBC, et.al. are frothing at the mouth over this...a big plus for me. One other thing...Trump told Mexico, if they don't stop that caravan he's taking NAFTA off the table.

MAGA!

The democrat party is the most successful hate group. It attracts poor people who hate rich people, black people who hate white people, gay people who hate straight people, feminists who hate men, environmentalists who hate the internal combustion engine, and a lot of bratty college kids who hate their parents. However, the real secret of the party's success is that it attracts the support of journalists who hate Republicans, and who therefore work tirelessly to convince the rest of us that we should vote for democrats.

National Guard to watch the border; might be a good idea to check the demographics of the Guard units that get called in particularly those units from the Southern Boarder States..... Might be that the oaths taken and sworn by the Guard personnel will be no better than a democrats oath of office to protect and defend our Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic.

I say this as a Veteran who's served side by side with my Regular Army, Army Reserve, and National Guard brethren. It was bad then, I know it's worse now.

Totally agree with you. If I heard right, they are coming from SD. I may have that wrong, but I think that is what I read. Maybe Trump feels the same way ... :grin:

Well, by 'law', they can't detain , or engage with anyone. All they can do is observe and if they see something, they have to report to the boarder patrol and they will do the 'work'. But the border patrol is like, hell yeah!
