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


Unless they get enough buses and trucks.

Caravan becomes convoy.

😯

Whole lotta chicken little going on in this thread.

Obama sends troops to the border...not a PEEP.

Trump does the same exact thing Obama did and suddenly its ERR MERR GERDDD MARTIAL LAW!!! POSSE COMITATUS!!! UNCONSTITUTIONAL!!!

Give me a freaking break, every single person in here crying about it is a damn ignorant hypocrite.

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


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.


They are illegal aliens. Or will be when they step foot on American soil.

As much as the left in this country want it to be, they are not citizens of the United States.

So not under domestic law, but a national security issue.

Hope that helped.

3 days ago it was 500. Then 2000. Then 3500. Then 5000. Now 15000?

What exactly are these troops supposed to do?

There would be severe consequences to the US if Trump ordered them shot. And that's assuming the military would follow such an order in the first place (and that they would violate posse comitatus to be armed to do it).

15,000 troops are not logistics support. Pretty much the only legal action they can do is to contain the caravan and help them apply for asylum.

Or, hey maybe it's Jade Helm part 2? The same people supporting this use of troops were scared Obama was going to use them this way.

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


That's literally all it is. The military has virtually no authority to do anything here. Trump just wants some photo op's of a military on our border for the midterms.

How do you plan to stop this foreign invasion or do you intend to just surrender American sovereignty? I am curious what you motivations are.

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!


So if they enter US soil, what do you believe they should do? Would you support Trump giving an order to shoot any migrant who crosses into our territory?

I can assume from your post that you haven't heard of "human shields"?
These women and children are being used for sympathy and the MSM.When
all hell should break out,these women and children will be killed first for
publicity purposes.
The bulk of the caravans are about 80% men of fighting age,that is an invasion!

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.


Clarify "example". Do you support rules of engagement for our military which involve killing unarmed civilians outside of a war zone?

I have been hearing these migrants are being bused and trucked
up to our borders.I predict that caravan will be here before the
mid-term elections.I do hope that I am wrong. Now I have been
hearing that MSM denies there is even a caravan coming here...

Can you tell me where in the constitution it says the president can't deploy troops to the border? As far as i read it not only gives him the right but also part of the duty of the government

Now you're just being stupid. But hopefully just a troll.

No one is going to shoot unarmed civilians. No one is going to order anyone to shoot unarmed civilians.

What they can, should and will do, is set up barriers and blocking positions so these people cannot enter the US. They will provide surveillance and logistical support to the border patrol.

They will probably funnel the mobs to some of the over 300 official points of entry where they can get in line and apply to enter and most likely get denied.

Of course not. Jesus...

Hence, heavy artillery.

Running into an active artillery zone is suicide, not murder.

Another thing that I had forgotten about...Not only will there be
troops on our borders,I hear the militias are coming over as well.

So why use the military if the goal is to just keep them comfortable and help them fill out paperwork?

Also, the US has very few options to deny asylum. According to the treaties we have, the first stable country they enter, is where they take asylum. Since Mexico is not stable by most definitions, the US is it.

Maybe we shouldn't have destabilized all those Central America countries in the past?

Do you?

I bet your answer is yes, according to you all those people need to be purged.
