The past days it was reported that 1500-strong army of illegal migrants was marching to the US border through Mexico with the blessing of the Mexican government. President Trump reacted to this and said he is prepared to deploy the US military to help avert a potential humanitarian crisis.
Trump said: “We have very bad laws for our border. We’re going to be doing some things. I spoke with General Mattis, we’re going to be doing things with the military. Until we have a wall and proper security, we’re going to be guarding our border with the military.”
And now, President Donald Trump scored another big win after it was reported that the caravan of illegal aliens reportedly opted to abandon traveling to the US-Mexico border and he signed a proclamation that deploys the National Guard to the U.S.-Mexico border.

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said earlier that the White House was working with governors across the country and that the deployment hopefully begins “immediately.”

Currently, U.S. Border Patrol is in charge of patrolling and maintaining the border.
Trump has recently criticized the United States’ “weak” border laws.
“Mexico has very strong immigration laws. We should have those laws,” the President had said. “We have immigration laws that are laughed at by everybody. We need the wall, we need the protection, and we need to change our immigration laws at the border and elsewhere.”
The Republican president vowed to send the US military to secure the border and threatened to axe the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) if Mexico did not stop the caravan.”
This is what happens when we have a President who actually upholds our immigration laws. Trump stands tall and firm against all bullies.
This is how you handle invaders. You mobilize the military and say “Hell no. Go home.” We need to militarize our border 24/7/365. Not with just National Guard troops but Army and Marine units, Special Forces in some of the high traffic areas. We will defend our borders by any means necessary!
