With only a few weeks until a massive caravan of Central American marchers arrive at our border, there is dissent within the federal government of the United States.
President Trump, who has been tough on immigration from the very onset of his political career, has been working overtime to prepare for the coming crisis. With an estimated 14,000 defiant, would-be immigrants headed north through Mexico, the United States has a duty to enforce the law upon their arrival.
Given the lack of border security that Trump campaigned on still existing, the President has ordered additional military assets to the southwest to deal with the incoming migrants.
Of course, the left has not been on board with the plan, and it seems that the Pentagon has caught a bit of “resistance” fever as well.
When the Trump administration first asked the Pentagon to send troops to the southern border, the administration wanted the troops to take on duties that Department of Defense officials viewed as law enforcement functions, CNN has learned.
The Pentagon said no.According to two defense official familiar with the request, the Department of Homeland Security asked that the Pentagon provide a reserve force that could be called upon to provide “crowd and traffic control” and safeguard Customs and Border Protection personnel at the border to counter a group of Central American migrants walking to the US border to request asylum.The Pentagon rejected the request on October 26, according to one of the officials, even as it signed off on providing DHS with air and logistics support, medical personnel and engineers.
