Donald Trump deployed troops to the border to stop the migrant caravan.
The fake news howled it was a stunt.
But Secretary of Defense Mattis had a message for the caravan that they will never forget.
Mattis and Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen visited the 5,000 troops deployed to the Southern border.
The troops are playing a support role so the Border Patrol can concentrate on stopping illegal aliens from pouring over the border.
Mattis answered the fake news media critics who called the deployment a stunt simply stating that “border security is part of national security.”
Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen visited the southern Texan border on Wednesday to bolster troops deployed to support border agents trying to prevent caravans of migrants from illegally crossing.
“We’ve come down here to pay our respects,” Mattis told soldiers deployed at McAllen, Texas. “We know what you’re doing, we track it every day … Sometimes you got to come down and see the troops,” he said.
Mattis, a retired Marine general, told a group of young enlisted soldiers, “The eyes of the world right now, and certainly the Americans, are on you.”
“We want legal immigration — that’s part of what makes America good,” he said. “But illegal — we’re going to carry out the law.”
Democrats and the fake news media hate the fact that Trump is trying to secure the border.
They favor unlimited migration because they think once all the illegal aliens are granted amnesty they will turn into Democrat Party voters.
Liberals don’t care about the rule of law or national sovereignty.
But Secretary Mattis reminded the troops that is what they are defending.
