Trump: 'We Are Going To Be Guarding Our Border With Our Military'

President Trump said Tuesday at the White House the US military will be guarding our southern border.

From The Daily Caller:
“We are going to be guarding our border with our military. That’s a big step,” Trump told reporters gathered at the White House. “We cannot have people flowing into our country illegally, disappearing, and by the way never showing up for court.”

The President’s comments appear to take aim at current US policy which requires border agents to catch then release family units who arrive at the border from noncontiguous countries.
He also said he had spoken with Secretary of Defense James Mattis about the use of the military to guard the border.

In recent days, Trump has repeatedly tweeted about a caravan of illegal immigrants making their way from Honduras to the US border via Mexico. The President had threatened to end the NAFTA agreement if the Mexican government did not stop the caravan and to end U.S. aid to Honduras.

Mexican authorities responded to Trump’s Sunday threat to kill NAFTA by pledging to disband the caravan and allow some transmitters to apply for asylum in Mexico. The organizers, however, said many members of the group will continue marching north towards the US-Mexico border where, if they claim asylum and are with a family unit, they legally must be released into the interior of the country.
More from CNN:
Asked to clarify his comments during a joint news conference, Trump said he is "preparing for the military to secure our border" and he would be attending a meeting on the topic of border security with Mattis and others "in a little while."
Trump heard our cries. He responds to negative feedback like that coming from Ann Coulter and his hardcore supporters.

I said yesterday this was a "Camp of the Saints" moment and this caravan needed to be repelled by any means necessary.



President Trump stepped up to the plate and the caravan has reportedly been largely disbanded due to pressure he put on Mexico.


This is a small victory which hopefully will signal a turning of the tide.
