DEFENDING America: Trump may deploy U.S. military to southern border to stop advancing migrant invasion


POTUS Donald Trump on Thursday threatened to deploy the U.S. military along portions of the southwestern border as a migrant horde of more than 4,000 makes its way from Honduras.

The president, fed up with RINOs and Democrats who have steadfastly refused to send him legislation financing his border wall and toughening immigration and asylum laws, tweeted his warning about the military while imploring Mexican officials to do more to stop the caravan from crossing their southern border.

“I am watching the Democrat Party led (because they want Open Borders and existing weak laws) assault on our country by Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, whose leaders are doing little to stop this large flow of people, INCLUDING MANY CRIMINALS, from entering Mexico to U.S…,” he began, The Gateway Pundit reported.

“…In addition to stopping all payments to these countries, which seem to have almost no control over their population, I must, in the strongest of terms, ask Mexico to stop this onslaught – and if unable to do so I will call up the U.S. Military and CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER!” he continued.

“The assault on our country at our Southern Border, including the Criminal elements and DRUGS pouring in, is far more important to me, as President, than Trade or the USMCA. Hopefully Mexico will stop this onslaught at their Northern Border. All Democrats fault for weak laws!” POTUS wrote.

The president is venting his frustration even as more and more people begin to ask important questions, such as – how did this caravan form in the first place? Who’s behind it? Who’s financing it? Who is helping these people along the way? (Related: America overrun: Yale study forecasts far larger illegal immigrant population than previous estimates.)

As The National Sentinel reported, talk radio giant Rush Limbaugh asked many of these questions on his daily syndicated program Wednesday, knowing such things don’t generally happen spontaneously:

Specifically, Limbaugh pondered who might be ‘funding’ the caravan; how they are living as they trek the thousand-plus miles to the U.S.; how they’re taking care of basic health and hygiene; who’s feeding them, etc. 

Because in order to make such a journey on foot, someone has to be helping them, he said. And of course, he’s right.

Will it come to actually deploying the Army to the border?

To that end, Florida Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz tweeted a video appearing to show young men walking among a column of mostly migrant women handing out what he said was cash – which would explain how they are able to sustain themselves and their children along the way.

And while we still don’t yet know who is funding the caravan, it would appear that Limbaugh’s instincts – that someone is – have proven correct.

“BREAKING: Footage in Honduras giving cash 2 women & children 2 join the caravan & storm the US border @ election time. Soros? US-backed NGOs? Time to investigate the source!”

Gaetz tweeted, offering some suggestions as to who might be shelling out the money.

As for the president’s threat, it’s not clear which military units would be sent to the border and where they would be sent. Presumably, troops – if they are ordered to the border – would be sent to wherever the caravan attempts to cross or attempts to apply for asylum. It’s also not clear how many troops would be sent.

Constitutionally, the president – as commander-in-chief of the armed forces – has the authority to order troops to protect the homeland. But some could argue that sending an armed force to confront an unarmed group of civilians would constitute an illegal order, especially if those forces were instructed to use deadly force (not likely).

Politically, the migrant caravan appears timed to affect the outcome of the November midterm elections. POTUS Trump appearing strong on illegal immigration helped him win two years ago, so it’s hard to see how standing strong against this caravan now will hurt him.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo goes to Mexico on Friday to try to enlist Mexico’s assistance in interdicting the caravan. That would be the best solution.
