Agreed Judge! Only one small hyper-technical issue. Having the regular Army, or other branch of the military wouldn’t be an option because of the Posse Comitatus Act. Only the National Guard, which is the only military branch with police powers. So, the risk of running afoul of some legal technicality is reduced significantly. Plus the Army National Guard of states like Texas, Arizona, and other border states are compromised of soldiers who live in those states…and have skin in the game. So, they’ll really step up to the challenge, if mobilized (put on “active duty orders”) to protect our southern border, whether it’s to stop this so-called “caravan of migrants”…or to just protect our southern border against the regular invasion by illegal aliens that we’ve been experiencing for a couple decades now.
It is utter chaos on our southern border! That is why, as we’ve been saying for 4.5 years to BOTH administrations… BUILD THE WALL NOW!!!!…and put U.S. Army National Guard troops physically ON the border with Mexico to prevent would-be crossers from stepping one foot on U.S. soil. After all, once they do, they’re entitled (and that’s the key word) to all sorts of freebies that we, the actual citizens end up paying for. Then, those Army Guard troops need to stay there ON the border until that wall/fence is finally built above and below (to prevent tunneling) ground…however long it takes. Simultaneously, we need to be deporting illegal aliens already here by the hundreds of thousands (and yes, you read that correctly)…paying particular attention to known gang members (i.e. MS-13, etc.), convicted criminal aliens, and those already determined by an immigration judge to be deported…regardless of age, gender, OR family status. And, that’s just the bare minimum, folks! To do anything less is NOT in our country’s national security, or economic, interests. It’s clear, that despite President Trump’s efforts, we are nowhere near getting control of the invasion coming across our southern border by these illegal aliens. If we experienced this kind of surge across our borders by China, Russia, Iran, or N. Korea, we’d call it an act of war. It’s time we treated this problem accordingly and gave it the attention it deserves. Securing our southern border needs to be our federal government’s #1 domestic national security priority. Period!! If the GOP want to maintain control of the House after the midterm elections which are less than 2 months away, then they need to get off their collective butts and authorize funding for the wall immediately. Call or email your member of Congress and BOTH of your U.S. Senators and demand that they vote to fund the building of the wall!
No kidding.. This is the sort of story that makes ya sick to your stomach. Glad these vermin were finally caught by those brave law enforcement officers in Texas. Hopefully they’ll be charged with not only the immigration violations, and the resisting arrest charges…but also charged with the brutal killing of these poor dogs. There is a special place in hell for evil people like this. If ever there was yet another reason to secure our southern border, then here it is. That is why we have been calling on the last two administrations to BUILD THE WALL NOW!!!…and put U.S. Army National Guard troops physically ON the border with Mexico! Then, those troops should remain ON the border until that wall/fence is finally built above, and below, ground to prevent tunneling…however long it takes. Simultaneously, we need to be deporting illegals already here by the hundreds of thousands (and yes, you read that correctly), paying particular attention to known cartel (like this) and gang members (i.e. MS-13, etc.), criminal aliens, and those already determined by an immigration judge to be deported…regardless of age or gender. And this is just the bare minimum, folks. To do anything less is NOT in our country’s national security, or economic, interests. Of course, we’re all for supporting legislative efforts at the state and federal levels intended to fight social security fraud, and to punish employers who knowingly hire illegals. BUT, securing the southern border, as well as ports of entry into the U.S., should be our number one domestic national security objective. Period! President Trump, and AG Jeff Sessions have made much progress on this issue in the year and a half they’ve been in their respective positions. But, it doesn’t go nearly far enough. We ALL need to continue to put pressure on AG Sessions, and President Trump to push for the building of that wall…as well as on our legislative reps in both the House and Senate to fund such efforts.
