Trump Wants To Send 2,000-4,000 National Guardsmen To The Border


President Donald Trump gave reporters additional details Thursday on his plan to send National Guardsmen to protect the southern border.

POTUS said during the Air Force One flight back from West Virginia the administration is “looking at” sending “anywhere from 2,000 to 4,000” guardsmen to the border.

“We’ll probably keep them or a large portion of them,” until the construction is completed on the wall, he added.

Trump first announced his plan to guard the border with the military during a Tuesday roundtable session at the White House.

“We are going to be guarding our border with our military. That’s a big step,” he explained. “We cannot have people flowing into our country illegally, disappearing, and by the way never showing up for court.”

Trump’s plan has been met with mild resistance.

Oregon Governor Kate Brown pledged Wednesday to defy the president if he attempts to federalize members of the Oregon National Guard.

“If [Trump] asks me to deploy Oregon Guard troops to the Mexico border, I’ll say no,” she tweeted. “As Commander of Oregon’s Guard, I’m deeply troubled by Trump’s plan to militarize our border.”

President Trump's strategy to combat illegal crossings and drug trafficking at the U.S. southern border would include mobilizing the National Guard, the White House said on Tuesday.

The statement appeared to clarify an announcement by Trump earlier Tuesday, in which he proposed sending the military to guard the southern border until his long-promised border wall is built, without providing further details.

The statement did not provide details about when or if the strategy would actually be carried out.

Sending the National Guard to patrol the border would not be unprecedented.

Former President George W. Bush sent 6,000 National Guard troops to the southern border in 2006 to assist the Border Patrol while more border agents were hired and trained. And former President Obama sent 1,200 guardsmen to the U.S.-Mexico border in 2010.

Trump has stepped up his rhetoric on illegal immigration in recent days, echoing the hardline talk that often characterized his presidential campaign and early days in the White House.

On Sunday, he closed the door on a potential deal with lawmakers on the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, and called on Monday for Mexico to step up efforts to detain immigrants that illegally pass through its borders.

Those comments apparently followed a briefing last week, in which senior officials warned Trump of the "growing influx of illegal immigration, drugs and violent gang members from Central America, and directed a vigorous administrative strategy to confront this threat and protect America’s national security," according to the White House.

Trump's suggestion on Tuesday that he would militarize the southern border also came after reports that he had floated having the Pentagon redirect funding to pay for the wall, a move that would require congressional approval he would be unlikely to receive.

"Until we can have a wall and proper security, we are going to be guarding our border with the military," Trump said at the White House on Tuesday. "That's a big step. We really haven't done that before, or certainly not very much before."

That comment prompted the Mexican government to lodge a formal request that the State Department and Homeland Security Department clarify the president's remarks.
