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 »

I am surprised that they didn’t call on the Oath Keepers or the 3% group to help, the more they have, the better chance of stopping them. But hey what about all the private property that borders the country can the people who live on the land that own it can they use deadly force to protect their property? And if no who will to protect them since it is private property? This brings on a whole new set of problems for the people living in the area. So his back is against the wall and we will see what… Read more »

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 »

ALELUYA, this is the best news I’ve heard about the invading plebeians. No doubt about it, POTUS MEANS BUSINESS. I can picture him when he was a private citizen conducting business at the Trump Tower.

The same technology [BAE Systems] that eliminated the Somali pirates from overtaking shipping lanes, can be used at the US/Mexico border. We have NO obligation to accept these invaders onto our soil.

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 »

This is their primary intent. If they can’t get enough to do this then they should be pulled off all the idiotic foreign wars and sent home.

If these invaders are coming from Guatemala who’s there to say no to Cuba/Castro to send another invasion via Cuba/Key West, the dry foot/wet foot is no longer in place. CUBA/CASTRO is the slithering snake.

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. The leftists and jews are already preparing for a fake barrage of news reports against whichever, either the troops or the patriots, or both – based upon the recent probable falsified sensationalized “news” reports about “mail bombs” being sent to some of the… Read more »

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 »

We all have known it, of course, but now it’s been “Confirmed” about jew Soros and other “stealth” jew organizations, which allied with other leftists, operate behind Front Group names [using foundations, corporations and other entities] as cover. “The open borders group behind the illegal alien caravan marching to the US border is funded by several liberal organizations including Soros’s Open Society. The Pueblo Sin Fronteras (“People Without Borders”) is a project of La Familia Latina Unida, a Chicago, Illinois-based 501(c)(4) illegal immigration advocacy organization formed in 2001 by Elvira Arellano, an activist for immigrants living illegally in the United… Read more »

Zika and a polio-like virus has been mentioned above. Here’s what the CDC itself and the Border Patrol say is also coming across our border and passing through medical screening: HIV, measles, pertussis, rubella, rabies, hepatitis A, influenza, tuberculosis, shigellosis, syphilis, scabies, chickenpox, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, viruses, lice. A Mex philosopher interviewed on Internet radio a few years back stated it was government policy down there to ship their criminals and criminally insane people up here. The Bush cabal positively had to know this almost twenty years ago. As I understand it from reading Michael Jones, the CIA (a Wall… Read more »

It is quite clear that Bergoglio is behind this ‘socialist invasion’ with the help of his other globalist operatives. American citizens are exhausted with this political BS. We either operate by the ‘rule of law’ or we devolve into a ‘banana republic’. I vote for the former which is lasting and give my children a future based on solid rock.

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”? :-/

Sigh of relief. Everyone can feel Safe now. (/sarc)

Great post & comments everyone. I feel your pain & frustration.
