POTUS Beefs Up Military Border Response by MASSIVE Numbers

All we can hope for now is peace through preparation.

Trouble is heading this way, and the President is preparing for it in a big way.
Deep in the heart of Mexico, a horde of up to 14,000 Central Americans are on their way to the US border.  When they arrive, many plan to enter our country illegally, defying President Donald Trump in a way that only this sort of thing could.
You see, Trump ran his campaign on strong and stern promises to shore up our southern border with a “big, beautiful wall”…something that the obstructionist democrats have been working overtime to prevent from happening.  When this migrant caravan reaches US soil, it will be the proverbial tip of the spear, piercing that armor of the bombastic Commander in Chief.
At least, that’s what the democrats are hoping for, along with some ugly optics to fill the airwaves with just as Americans head to ballot box next week.
The left may not get their anarchistic dream, however, due to the Donald Trump’s frankly enormous escalation of military and law enforcement presence on the border this week.
U.S. Northern Commander Air Force Gen. Terrence O’Shaughnessy is tackling his mission to use the military to harden the southern border with gusto. “We know border security is national security,” he told reporters at a news conference yesterday, in which he announced that 800 soldiers from Fort Campbell, Ky., are already en route to Texas. By week’s end they will be joined by thousands more, not just in Texas, but also in Arizona and California. “By the end of this week, we will deploy over 5,200 soldiers to the southwest border. That is just the start of this operation. We’ll continue to adjust the numbers and inform you of those,” O’Shaughnessy said.

THE MISSION: The active-duty troops have two main objectives: Reinforce infrastructure, such as security barriers at 26 designated ports of entry, and help seal gaps in the border between the crossing points where immigrants may try to cross illegally. But the responsibility for border security will remain with U.S. Customs and Border Protection. “Our first level of effort with CBP will be to harden the points of entry and address key gaps in areas around the points of entry,” O’Shaughnessy said. CBP Commissioner Kevin McAleenan disputed the idea that the deployment of thousands of troops was a political ploy in advance of the midterms elections. “No, this is a law enforcement operation from CBP’s perspective and we partner with DOD all the time to help secure our border,” McAleenan said.

There is still much speculation as to what will actually happen when the caravan reaches the border.

All we can hope for now is peace through preparation.
