Imagine a sitting American president upholding the law and protecting our borders from foreign invaders. Some of those deployed will be U.S. Marines.
The US will deploy 5,000 troops to the southern border in response to the thousands of Central American migrants headed to America — up from the initial estimate of 800.
The troops will be sent to Texas, Arizona and California and will likely staff ports of entry, at least in the early phases of the military mission, officials told the Wall Street Journal.
The Pentagon has dubbed the mission — which comes amid the midterm elections — Operation Faithful Patriot. It’s expected that most will serve until mid-December, a Pentagon official said.
About 1,800 troops will be sent to Texas, 1,700 to Arizona and 1,500 to California, according to the latest plans.
Judging by my four days is beautiful Texas, the president could divert those troops to Arizona in favor of something better: armed Texans.
