With the blessings and support of President Donald Trump, the U.S. Commander in Chief, Defense Secretary James N. Mattis has authorization to deploy as many as 1,000 U.S. Army troops  to the U.S. border with Mexico to support the Department of Homeland Security border security mission there.

At least 800 soldiers began their deployment following the President’s authorization, as he sees the number of Central Americans — estimated to be 14,000 and growing —  undeterred from their quest to push their way into the United States.

According to reports obtained by the National Association of Chiefs of Police (NACOP), Secretary of Defense James N. Mattis and the Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen — whose department includes the U.S. Border Patrol, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and others —  are working closely together to meet the president’s goal of enhancing border security.

President Trump directed the U.S. military to expand its existing support to the DHS border security mission, according to the Pentagon’s chief spokeswoman Dana White.

The president authorized the troop deployment to enhance its support to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, which consists of Border Patrol agents and Customs officers. The military efforts will include use of military-grade unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), engineering tasks, electronic surveillance, enhanced communications equipment, vehicle maintenance and logistics support. These military members will act in support of Border Patrol agents who are performing law enforcement duties.

The cell will focus on supporting CBP’s priorities based on missions and threats, which will determine the time-frame and the number of military personnel employed.

“DOD will continue to have a critical role in securing our nation’s border in partnership with DHS to ensure the defense of our nation and the security of the American people. your,” said Rapuano.

      Pay attention to what is occurring in Canada; yes Canada. Justin Trudeau:
      https://debatepost.com/2017/03/28/trudeau-christians-are-the-worst-part-of-canadian-society/
      Canadian PM Justin Trudeau brought more than 30,000 refugees to Canada over the last year and half , mostly refugees who fled war torn countries like Syria.

      Most of those refugees were Muslims, some reports say 99 percent of refugees that came to Canada were Muslim.

      Hate to see The U.S. having to look at increase our Northern Border which is the longest unsecured/mostly non walled Border in the world as I’ve been told.

        These things with the refugees would not happen is countries would STOP bombing their homes and lands, forcing them to leave.

        Why does no one seem to realize this? “War on terror” was a conservative creation and is responsible for the refugee problems the last few years. what do folks expect? What would YOU do if your towns and homes were being bombed into oblivion?

        Of course there were a lot of muslims! It is part of their culture, just like if the US had been bombed to smithereens, the refugees would be “a lot of christians”.

        THINK…you are being played.
