Donald Trump took office promising to rebuild America’s military into a fighting force that’s respected around the world.
President Trump accomplished that goal.
And now Donald Trump gave the military the go-ahead on one mission that no one could believe.
Donald Trump caused conniptions in the Washington, D.C. Swamp last fall when he ordered troops to the Southern Border to help stem the flow of the illegal alien invasion.
The Fake News Media howled that it was an election year stunt that would be soon forgotten.
And once again, the Fake News Media was wrong.
An additional 2,000 troops are being sent to the border to provide logistical support so the Border Patrol can concentrate on stopping illegal aliens from crossing into the country.
Acting Defense Secretary Richard Spencer has authorized the additional deployment of 1,100 active-duty troops and 1,000 Texas National Guard soldiers to the U.S.-Mexico border, the Pentagon announced today.
They will join some 2,500 active-duty and 2,000 National Guard troops already there, for a total force of 6,600 on the border mission.
The new active-duty troops will arrive “in the next several weeks” and will provide “aerial surveillance, operational, logistical, and administrative support” to Customs and Border Patrol, Pentagon spokesperson Maj. Chris Mitchell said in a statement.
The increase in active-duty forces is required due to a “shortfall in volunteer National Guard personnel” conducting the same missions, Mitchell said.
Border arrests fell in June after Donald Trump worked out a deal with Mexico which included Mexico deploying thousands of troops along their own border to prevent illegal aliens from traveling through Mexico to the United States.
The deployment of additional U.S. troops is another measure the President is taking to tackle this illegal immigration crisis.
