The migrant caravan is testing Donald Trump.
Thousands of migrants are massing on the Southern border preparing an invasion.
And Donald Trump just gave James Mattis the order about the caravan that every American was waiting for.
Trump gave Mattis the authority to expand the military’s mission on the Southern border.
The troops now have the ability to take “protective activities” to defend the Border and the Border Patrol should the migrants get out of hand.
President Donald Trump has given Defense Secretary Jim Mattis the authority to allow troops at the Southwest border to perform “military protective activities” he deems necessary to protect troops and border patrol agents, according to a White House memo viewed by Breitbart News.
Those activities include “a show or use of force (including lethal force, where necessary), crowd control, temporary detention, and cursory search,” according to the memo, which was signed on Tuesday by White House Chief of Staff John Kelly.
“Department of Defense personnel shall not, without further direction from the President, conduct traditional civilian law enforcement activities, such as arrest, search, and seizure in connection with the enforcement of the laws,” it added.
Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said despite the new authorization, the current missions have not yet changed and that troops remain unarmed except for those whose specific job is to protect other deployed troops.
Despite what the fake news media says, the caravan is filled with violent individuals.
Video in Mexico showed thugs storming fences and overrunning Mexican military and law enforcement.
Reports also surfaced that the migrants threw rocks and Molotov cocktail bombs.
Americans want to see the border secured and are thrilled to see President Trump take the steps necessary to achieve this important goal.
