OFFICIAL: TRUMP TO SEND NATIONAL GUARD TO SOUTHERN BORDERㅤ
Pictured: Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen
ㅤ”President Trump will soon sign an order to deploy National Guard troops to the United States’ southern border, Kirstjen Nielsen announced Wednesday.
ㅤSpeaking at the White House, Nielsen framed the move as a way to toughen an immigration system that ‘rewards bad behavior,’ including illegal drug smuggling and border crossings.
ㅤ’Border security is homeland security, which is national security,’ Nielsen told reporters. ‘It’s not a partisan issue.’
ㅤIt remains unclear how many troops will be sent to the border, how long they will be deployed and how much the operation will cost.
ㅤ’It will be strong. It will be as many as needed to fill the gaps we have today,’ Nielsen said when asked about troop numbers. ‘We do hope the deployment will begin immediately.’
ㅤ’National Guard troops will serve in a support role and will not actively detain or handle migrants who cross the border illegally, Nielsen said.'”
