Mattis is "a soldier's soldier", and will be a welcome sight for the troops at the border.
With perhaps only weeks until the bulk of the migrant caravan arrives, this is a good first showing for the US authorities.
The democrats have been of no help to the President on border security, likely forcing this hand to be played.
With immigration leading the nation's concerns at the polls, you would think that the Pentagon's attitude would be a bit different.
Wait. What did the President say that the military would do?!
You are not going to believe the audacity of this maneuver!
As one user put it: Trump ain't playin'.
Since when does the UN get to decide how we run our country?
All we can hope for now is peace through preparation.
Now, in an effort to further diffuse the situation, the President is pushing a new and extremely sharp tactic.
Kirstjen Nielsen has laid it all on the line for the migrant caravan...the only question left is whether or not they'll heed her warnings.
They didn't mince words, either.
Mad Dog Mattis isn't messing around this time.
The caravan cometh, and Mike Pompeo doesn't appear to be pulling any punches.
There is still no clear picture as of what to expect once these migrants reach the border.
What we're seeing from the front lines should have all Americans concerned.
A showdown is looming at the United States' border with Mexico, and President Trump is certainly not taking the situation lightly.
The caravan's timing and escalation of violence could become an issue in the American midterm elections.
The move has seemingly vindicated President Trump's hard stance on illegal immigration, much to the dismay of the democrats.
Once again, the President who promised the nation a "big, beautiful wall" is facing a crisis at the border.
