On Wednesday, the Trump administration announced that President Trump will sign a proclamation to send the National Guard to the border immediately in a bid to cut down on illegal immigration.
Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said at the White House press briefing that it would be done in conjunction with governors and that the administration hopes the deployment begins “immediately.” She added that the aim was to deploy the National Guard troops as quickly as possible.
Nielsen said: “Despite a number of steps this administration has taken…we continue to see unacceptable levels of illegal drugs, dangerous gang activity transnational criminal organizations and illegal immigration flow across our border.”
“The president has directed that the Department of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security work together with our governors to deploy our National Guard to our southwest border to assist the border patrol,” she said. “The president will be signing a proclamation to that effect today.”
Nielsen is also railing against the country’s current immigration laws and calling on Congress to make changes.
She says the current system “rewards bad behavior” and “it’s time to act.”
She said details are still being worked out, but National Guard personnel are expected to assist with U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s mission.
This is great news. About time we get a president who actually cares about our country! So glad we are finally going to shut down the illegal aliens coming across our border.
But also more bad news for the Democrats. Voters won’t be able to cross and cast their ballots for the midterms.
We need walls, we do need borders. A country without borders is not a country but a free for all, and America is not a “free for all”. This is America, which is a country and should build the highest walls with electrical charges within it.
What do you think? Do you agree with sending troops to protect our southern borders?
