So, I'll repeat for effect: is anyone thick enough to still believe these 20,000 armed military are there to stop some 3-5,000 unarmed civilians, with exhausted and sick women and children.

Every source I've seen says the troops being sent are non-combat units for logistics and supporting roles. Please provide a source that says these will be armed, combat troops.


From what I have heard, you are correct. They are also going to lay down a snip load of razor wire! Guess if you dumb enough to rampage your way thru that, Darwinism will win?


Read just one post above yours for proof. I expect a star also for proving that assertion wrong.


Also, do any combination of "armed troops border" or whatever words you think will work and you'll get more material saying they will be armed. Search is such an easy tool.


You provided a link to VOX which in my opinion is the equivalent to the left wing Alex Jones. We have a hoard of violent foreign nationals wanting to crash our border and DEMAND entry. I sure as hell hope our military is armed to protect our nation from people who believe they are entitled to just walk on in with no consequences? How about you try to leave the US without a passport!


Ok, now that you have said that, I have to refer you to this post above:



In that case, people who still support this just need to stop pretending and come out and say:

"Who am I kidding, I don't care one little bit about the Constitution. I only care about Trump and the America he is creating."

This would avoid so many senseless and pointless debates.


Thanks for being clear on your stance. I guess there is not much for us to talk about. I DO care about the Constitution.



Do you? Or are you virtue signaling like the rest who hate the Constitution but only use it when it benefits you political ideology?





Look at all those poor women and children, right?????

It's a show of force, as a deterrent. The fact remains that if any of these migrants make it to the legitimate border crossings and get one toe on the US side then claim they are seeking asylum we have to let that person in. They get detained, taken care of, provided everything they need, and their day in court, a process that can take months or years. Of course, all at taxpayers expense.

The best that can be done is to try to deter them from reaching that point. The military really can't do anything, they aren't allowed to carry weapons.

Heard today, Border Patrol is apprehending 1,000+ a day now. 3,500 is less than 4 days worth as the situation now stands. The border does need to be sealed, now.

Edit: That's 365,000 a year as the situation now exists. The border needs closing...

If you can't tell the difference between Martial Law where militarized police are going door to door from the Department of Defense defending the border from a horde of international criminals.

Than you're just being willfully ignorant.

The President can deploy troops if there's an insurrection or invasion on U.S. soil, its all part of the Posse Comitatus Act. And i for one have no problem with them on our borders, especially when we are about to be illegal invaded. i mean, really what would you want if we were really invaded? maybe just leave them over in the middle east ganking more oil? wake up dude, this is an invasion does'nt matter that they just want to move here it is not being done legally making it a invasion. but in the end it wont matter, they will just end up using some tunnels the mexicans dug that we have'nt found yet and end up miles behind the military at the border.

the troops headed to the border will be armed, just ordered not to use them. i'm sure they will follow rules of engagement as always tho and unload on anything that attacks them.

OMG.. a 4th Caravan has organized and is now on it's way to the U.S./Mexico border. CNN says these caravans are "imaginary".

www.independentsentinel.com...

It's too bad nobody will organize a caravan of America-haters and lead them out of this country...CNN included.

protecting our border from invasion does not violate the posse comitatus act in any way shape or form.

invaded? LOL babies and mommies. Be afraid be very afraid.
I bet the day after election day this crisis is resolved and they are returned to their regular posts.
They are only doing this as a political ploy to scare people and get them to vote republican.
Most americans are against this action and do not believe it necessary. How many of these babies are going to be kidnapped from their parents once they do get here.

I can't find a good link with what the border patrol wants/needs? It's all political.

Does the border patrol want national guard troops? That's the real question that we should all be asking but how do you find and answer to that?

I did find this....From 2006 to 2008, Bush deployed 6,000 National Guard personnel when the government was trying to hire more CBP agents. Obama activated 1,200 National Guard from 2010 to 2012 to strengthen border security.


Those "token" deploys may have been failure by design.

I bet not ONE of you have been watching this caravan with an inspecting, militaristic eye. China is.

If you don't think China is looking at this as a possible invasion route, you're wrong.

Its not an invasion though.

a invasion to me implies a military operation to control territory.

This is a criminal matter of people entering the state illegally and as such should be dealt with as a criminal matter in the way it always has been.

For me when you start using the military for matters of law enforcement domestically I start to see a case for calling it martial law.

i am more thinking a big show of force at our border just may be a big deterrent to anymore migrant caravans illegally entering our southern border. if we repell this first ones the rest wont have any reason to even try .

It's likely that President Trump will comment on this subject tonight.
FYI.. Big Trump-led rally in Florida this evening @ 7pm Eastern.


President Trump heads to southwest Florida tonight for a massive MAGA rally at Hertz arena in Fort Myers. President Trump is strongly supporting Governor Rick Scott’s Senate bid, as well as Congressman Ron DeSantis’ campaign for to replace Scott as Governor.

President Trump campaigned in Fort Myers in September 2016, and returned to the area with the first-lady following Hurricane Irma. Tonight’s rally is likely to be a very big event for attendance. Anticipated start time is 7:00pm EST with pre-rally speakers earlier.

i dont know man, it really seems like an invasion to me, from what i have seen in videos of how they been acting along the way that is not a peaceful migrant caravan headed this way. and on top of it they are not going about it the right way. some have took asylum offered in mexico the rest should have done the same. illegal imigrants should be blocked from entering and find a legal way. when i was caught doing something illegal in the past i was locked up for it fined got nothing free. if the enter illegally they will get free room and board and healthcare that taxpayers have to pay for. thats like a slap in the face if you ask me.

You should cover up, my dear, your naivete is hanging out...

I love you, My Lady, but... Damn....

There are several caravans now. However, none will arrive at the border until November 20th, at the earliest.

Does this look like women and children breaking down the fences?

It seems like a slap in the face because that's what it is.

At the very least, should these criminals attempt to enter this country, they should be made an example of.

As I said earlier, heavy artillery can be an EXTREMELY effective deterrent.

And quite cost-effective, as well.
