Trump Deploys Troops to Border to Head Off Migrant Surge

President Donald Trump deployed additional troops to two cities on the U.S./Mexico border after a liberal federal court struck down administration policies asking asylum seekers to remain in Mexico while their claims are processed.

Eighty active-duty soldiers were deployed to San Diego to assist U.S. Customs and Border Patrol officials at the San Ysidro border crossing. Another 80 active-duty soldiers were deployed to El Paso to assist officials at the Paso del Norte bridge spanning the Rio Grande.

A federal district court struck down the Trump administration’s “remain in Mexico” rule, determining that federal asylum laws allow migrants to remain in the United States while their asylum claims are processed.  The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit upheld that ruling but limited it to only California and Arizona.

The White House has appealed the ruling to the U.S. Supreme Court. The Department of Homeland Security reports 60,000 asylum seekers have been blocked from entering the United States. If the court’s ruling is upheld they could enter the U.S.

In response to the ruling, a large number of asylum seekers gathered in Mexico near the El Paso border crossing, anticipating they will be allowed to enter.

“CBP Ports of Entry (POEs) are not designed or equipped to handle extremely large groups of travelers arriving all at the same time, and temporary closure of a POE is contemplated as an extreme option, as necessary for public safety and border security,” Customs and Border Patrol said in a written statement.

“Compounded in response to Friday’s (Feb. 28) amassment of large groups in Mexico with the potential to forcibly enter the United States, CBP closed or partially suspended operations at multiple locations in order to maintain safety and security,” the statement read.

You’re all correct and we wouldn’t have this problem IF the Dems were acting responsibly for us and were helping build the wall and following our immigration laws. They ALL should be in jail since this is intentional for treason and aiding and abetting criminals…especially this judge who’s another legislating from the bench.

Who are the biggest enemies of America? One would have to be blind, deaf and just plain stupid not to see it is the Democratic Party. Wanting to leave potential virus carriers into our country is the same as leaving in an atomic bomb in potentiality of deaths. These potential virus carriers will secretly travel all over the USA and of course not go for screening lest they be caught. Perfect weapon.

Based on this virus situation; closing the boarders might be in the best interest of the country. With the open boarder policy in California and as a California resident, the boarder should be closed before the virus infection multiplies. I am should that we Californians don’t want to die a horrible death.

Valdez Californians will not “die a horrible death” with the corona virus. Slap yourself hard and pull yourself together. The coronavirus IS NOT THAT LETHAL as the lame stream media would like you to believe. The regular influenza that we get every year kills far more people and nobody bats an eye!. This is a created crisis by the power that be and the Trump-hating media to disrupt the economy in the hopes that the President looks bad and looses (Heaven forbid!!) his re-election bid. The people that are dying are very elderly people and people with compromised immune system, like those with Aids or HIV. The mortality rate from the virus here is between 1 or 2%, very low. Calm down!!

Thank you proudmomoffive. I agree that we’re not likely to see mass death from covid19. That said, to have a judge decide to open our southern border to unvetted and untested ‘asylum seekers’ during a worldwide viral pandemic is tantamount to Reckless Endangerment. The question becomes: why do liberals hate America and our Citizens so badly?

This is about POWER–the dems want the power to rule the population via big government and they want to be in charge of it (deep state). Their intention is to use this as an opportunity to create FEAR, PANIC, and CHAOS so that they can take over and “come to the rescue”. Similar ploy Hitler used in Germany–right out of that playbook. Americans not familiar with world history are doomed to allow it repeated here.

Yes! In response to the ruling the Trump Administration should just close the border. Period. Close all Points of Entry until the Supreme court rules in our favor. Which I think, (or hope) is very likely.

In my Humble Opinion Trump could just close the border entirely and be legally upheld. However…..the biggest issue is that there needs to be a 36 hour review plan for anyone caught entering the US illegally, even if seeking asylum.
A 10 or 20 questions form and a review of the asylum regulations against the answers. If no asylum is allowed from that place or circumstance then immediate bureaucratic repatriation of the illegal alien should take place within those three days. Appeal should be made from the country of patriot, not from within the USA.

If anybody coming across our border because of this judges ruling, and injures or kills someone then that judge should be charged with that crime, seems fair.

Hold this fucking retard accountable for any illegals crimes that come in on his authority. They let them out of jail, then they go rape or kill somebody the next day. How can they have a clean conscience after that. They hate Trump so much that they’re willing to cut off their nose to spite OUR face…we are the one’s that ultimately pay for their actions…we are at risk from those subhuman illegals, not him. If we start shooting these offenders after the first felony, it would send a strong message to the rest of the rats that we’re fed up and not going to take their shit anymore.

It’s certainly not right to panic. Mostly because panic serves no useful purpose under these circumstances. Ignore and avoid democrats as much as possible. All they are fixated with is getting rid of President Trump and they don’t give rats ass about the general population fodder. (I serve Nancy up as the best example.) It’s a virus folks. It is what it is and don’t underestimate it. Do prepare for the worst case scenario, then go on with your life. We have no immediate control over idiot judges with pus for brains, but it’s a problem we can work on in the future.

I don’t understand how an appointed judge, appointed by a president that in no longer in office, has more power than a President that was elected by the American people. Judges should be elected just like the President. They should have a 4 year terms just like the President. When the President’s term is over, theirs should be too, unless they are re-elected by the people.

These judges are a danger to WE THE PEOPLE. The Laws of this great Country were WRITTEN TO PROTECT US, THE AMERICAN CITIZENS. When these rogue judges make rulings that put US in danger they should be removed from the bench and be barred from legal practice as well as face charges of Reckless Endangerment.

Having a Supreme Court judgement allowing Trump to do just what he is doing why even listen to this idiot judge? He cannot overrule the Supreme Court judgement. Tell him to go fly a kite as he NEVER had standing in matters of National Security. That is reserved for the President only! Drag this clown off the bench in chains!

I Think sending troops to the border needs to be done -about a month ago would be great!
However, I do wonder about the 50 to 300 MILE WIDE GAPS in the border wall, where there are no guards, troops, etc. 10 miles outside those cities!?????
Hmmmmm, ILLEGALS THINKING TO THEMSELVES, “should I cross where I know I can’t get in, or should I go 10 miles down the road and just walk across there, with no bothersome questions, etc.?”

Trump should write an executive order giving all illegal aliens 30 days to leave the USA. Failing to do so arrests should be CRIMINAL for any illegal alien. Prosecution can be MANDATED by POTUS. Simple rules: After the arrest if you agree to leave and NEVER RETURN your sentence will be abated and a federal arrest warrant issued as an escaped convict. IF ever found here again NO STATE can withhold turning them over to the feds.
Under the law they would be escaped convicts from federal prisons and the sanctuary cities would have ZERO choice about notification and return to federal jurisdictions.
