5,200 U.S. troops are heading to Mexico border!

Please see update: “Operation Faithful Patriot: more than 5,200 U.S. troops deployed to secure US-Mexico border will be armed“.

President Donald John Trump means what he says.

Last Thursday, the President said he was “bringing out the military” to guard America’s southern border against the caravan hordes of mainly young, military-age, male migrants invaders from Honduras and Guatemala trekking through Mexico on foot and by train, bus, and truck toward the U.S. border.

On Monday, Oct. 22, Trump said he had alerted the Border Patrol and the U.S. military that the migrant caravan was a national emergency. He tweeted: “I am bringing out the military for this National Emergency. They will be stopped!”

The invading horde now number more than 14,000.

Reuters reported less than an hour agao that the U.S. military has received a request from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for active-duty troops to be deployed to the U.S.-Mexico border.

Speaking to Reuters on condition of anonymity, a Trump administration official said the military is examining the request that could require deploying between 800 and 1,000 active-duty troops to the border to assist with logistics and infrastructure, but would not be involved in “law enforcement” activities, something that would be prohibited by a federal law dating to the 1870s.

Note: What Reuters means is the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878.

That law restricts the use of the Army and other main branches of the military for civilian law enforcement on U.S. soil unless specifically authorized by Congress. But the military can provide support services to law enforcement and has done so on occasion since the 1980s.

However, there are specific statutes that authorize the president to deploy troops within the United States for riot control or relief efforts after natural disasters.

There are already 2,100 unarmed National Guard troops along the borders of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California. In April, frustrated by lack of progress on the wall, President Trump had ordered them sent to the border to help secure the border in the four southwestern states.

Also in April, Trump had raised the prospect of sending active-duty military forces to the border to block illegal immigration border-crossers, raising questions in Congress and among legal experts about troop deployments on American soil.

800 to 1,000 troops are a good beginning, but not enough.

President Trump has already called the “migrant” invasion a national emergency. By declaring martial law along the border, he can justify the deployment of troops for riot control.

Trump told the people at the WI rally that NONE of these invaders would be allowed to enter the U.S., and that we would be very impressed with his temporary version of a wall. Also, legal commentators are saying that he can even send troops into Mexico to stop them. We shall see. Trump is very serious about protecting us.

They previously sent over 4,000 to help the Border Patrol. They are under orders not to do “law enforcement” operations. They are alleged to be using about 2,000 at the present time but it is reported that they are unarmed. I am dead serious about this. That is not only not enough, they need to be DIRECTLY INVOLVED in this, not restrictions. Just the classic rules of engagement. They need machine guns, Claymores, flares, and wire. It is absolutely doable and easy. He has the unquestioned authority to use whatever means necessary to defend our border. Posse Commitatus only applies… Read more »

Lophatt .. . Bravo! You have an absolute excellent grasp of what is going on, and what is approaching our Southern Boarder. I agree, our military troops need to be armed with the latest and the greatest of military armament. Although, I know nothing about military logistics . . . in my mind I would say there should be a minimum of 12,000 US troops. Teddy Roosevelt in his great wisdom had a saying . . .”Speak softly, but carry a big stick!” I would say our “big stick” needs to be 12,000 US troops, so that these marauders are… Read more »

Thanks Auntie. I don’t want anybody hurt, I just want them stopped. If they choose to ignore our sovereignty, it’s on them. I don’t know what number would be required. A machine gun and two-man crew can cover quite an area. If they’re set up to overlap their patterns of fire you can minimize the number of troops needed. Of course there have to be enough for 24 hrs/day and logistical support. There are generally 3 – 4 personnel at least for every combat person. I would not anticipate much resistance and it shouldn’t last too long, but the emplacements… Read more »

I’m afraid he will wimp out too. First 1000 troops are nothing as was already pointed out for the amount of invaders. Secondly, it’s about the orders they have. Unless they have been given orders to actually shoot the mob if they come on inch past any barrier, then it’s over. They will just mow down the soldiers too. I still think those sound cannons would be a good beginning too. Let’s see if they keep pushing past the border when they feel like they are being fried.

It has become increasing obvious that the mob was transported through Guatemala by vehicle. How could they walk so far, so fast, but now in Mexico when the world is watching, they have not even made it 100 miles. Some 500 have accepted bus rides back to Honduras. Some 1,700 have applied for asylum in Mexico. Mexican authorities are refusing to provide food, water and restrooms to those who refuse asylum. It appears that since the photos of cash hand-outs and NWO trucks have gone viral, the NGOs are keeping a lower profile. However, it looks like women and children… Read more »

Just a thought that I’ve had ever since HS days when the National Guard was sent to Viet Nam (Greencastle PA National Guard unit spent something obscene like 3 or 4 tours in Viet Nam….). Isn’t the National Guard meant to GUARD the nation—our domestic borders—–not anything else? Why haven’t we had rotating National Guard Units at the border for years? Why aren’t our major National Guard units MEETING and training at bases already at the border or in newly-created bases at the border? When our Border Patrol Agents were being KILLED, where was our National Guard? WHO guards the… Read more »

That was the intent. They used to be under the Dept. of Transportation. After the 9-11 Movie they were moved to DHS. After that, an “emergency” was declared and they were placed at the disposal of the President. The Governors used to control them.

I think they are still treated like Army personnel now.

Thank you, LO…I knew you would know. So, I’m seeing the picture now….Governors USED to be able to use their STATE (they are still identified by state and city) National Guard units…..a legacy, I think, of the “MinuteMen” of old…….and of the state militia of the pre-Civil War era…..to guard/defend their own state borders in advance of any Federal decisioin or action when they were under duress from an outside, foreign entity. This is how I read it Constitutionally. But, somewhere along the line…..a PRESIDENT nullified this centuries-old arrangement. WHO? Also, I note here that it was Barack Hussein Obama,… Read more »

I’m feeling too lazy at the moment to do any research, but I remember that Sparky Bush was on the throne when the Dept. of Homeland Security was formed after 9-11. That was the excuse to make changes to the reserves. It used to be the case that all the state governors had a certain amount of troops at their disposal. The equipment they used, etc., belonged to the state. The Governor could call them up for state and local emergencies. During declared wars they could be drafted into the regular Army for specified terms. When the fighting was over… Read more »

What was the ‘UP SIDE” of this executive action? Wouldn’t you want your active TROOPS to receive medical care if the present system was stressed by a domestic or foreign situation that took them away from domestic service to military personnel??????

The question may be whether the Fed troops are actually going there to stop invaders, or are they there to stop, with the use of force, those patriotic Americans who are also going there – who are the one who are willing and able to do what it takes to stop the ongoing invasions of our homelands.

That’s a very good point. The numbers scare me. It isn’t nearly enough for any serious defense. If they don’t want to either be overrun (in which case he’s completely lost), or get involved in a back and forth that could go on forever, they have to show that they mean business. The best way I know to do this is to blast up a bunch of divots to show them they mean business then fire bursts over their head and walk them back.

I tend to agree. It’s starting to look like a ploy to turn a cold civil war into a hot civil war. It could be that the plan all along has been to foment vigilantes and military to shed each other’s blood. A favorite tactic of the Freemasonic/Talmudic cabal is to pit one group against another, so their involvement goes unnoticed by the dumbed down flock. I can recall only one incident from history where they actually said the blood was on them and their decendents.

Some of what this Czech Member of the European Parliament has to say in, “Czech Politician: What Multiculturalism Hides”, also applies to our other nations including the USA. “This new policy of multiculturalism, which emphasizes the benefits of cultural diversity for society and the state, is an example of the exploitation of others based on a fantasy of virtue. Those at whom the sweet talk of multiculturalism is aimed, can see that it has done nothing to improve their lot, and are now realizing that their future is bleak.” Some politicians claim that we need a mass wave of immigrants… Read more »

* “Pueblo Sin Fronteras organized the caravan in conjunction with the CARA Family Detention Pro Bono Project.

Yeah, I watched an interview in Spanish where they were all lined up telling the reporter where they were from. Some were from the Middle East, India, and Brazil. There were some blacks who could have been African (probably Somali).

Trump actually surprises me at times. He talked to the reporters today and couldn’t be baited into “accepting blame” for either the phony bombing or this. It drives them crazy. I love it.

How many soldiers per “Troop”?

Google’s drop-down-menus of similar questions said anywhere from 14-50 soldiers Per Troop, to 250 soldiers Per Troop.

Big Difference in numbers. Is there a legit number?

If 50 soldiers Per Troop x 800 Troops (AP) = 40,000 men. That MIGHT work: 40,000 unarmed (=worthless) soldiers to “stare down” 14,000 invaders.

Or will the unarmed soldiers instead play “arm wrestle” with the invaders to see who “wins”? :-/
