When President Trump says something, it’s wise to pay attention. Because unlike a professional politician, Trump doesn’t say things to be liked. He says what he intends to do and then he does it. That is very un-politician-like. President Trump said he was not going to allow the caravan to enter the United States.
Caravan participants might think it’s a bluff. Democrats might think it’s a bluff, but those of us who voted for Trump, we know better. He promises. He delivers. George Soros is paying good money for this caravan and now it seems like it was wasted.
The Wall Street Journal reported on Monday morning that the U.S. military plans to deploy 5,000 troops to the southwest border region in response to the caravan of “would-be asylum seekers.” The plans reportedly call for 1,800 troops to deploy to Texas, 1,700 to Arizona, and 1,500 to California.
Under “Operation Faithful Patriot,” troops are expected to be assigned to ports of entry in the early phase. They are expected to support Border Patrol agents and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers in dealing with the anticipated migrant caravan arrivals.
The troops are expected to come from about ten U.S. Army installations. The composition of the forces is expected to include military police, engineers, and medical personnel.
CBP Commissioner Kevin McAleenan said his agency is updating “longstanding plans to deal with a mass migration situation.” Those plans include temporary holding and processing facilities, he said.
They should charge every illegal they catch with conspiracy charges and then give them a choice. Five years in prison and then deportment or they can voluntarily self-deport and save themselves the prison time. It’s a win/win situation.
