4:17 P.M. Trump signs order sending National Guard to U.S.-Mexico border to fight illegal immigration …

Trump first revealed Tuesday that he’d been discussing the idea of using the military at the border with Defence Secretary Jim Mattis …

‘ We’re going to be doing things militarily. Until we can have a wall and proper security , we’re going to be guarding our border with the military ‘ Trump said … He spent the first months of his presidency bragging about a dramatic drop in illegal border crossings , which some DHS officials had even dubbed the ‘ Trump effect ‘. Indeed , arrests at the border last April were at the lowest level since DHS was created in 2003 , and the 2017 fiscal year saw a 45-year low for Border Patrol arrests … But the numbers have been slowly ticking up since last April and are now on par with many months of the Obama administration. New statistics released Wednesday show about 50,000 arrests of people trying to cross the southwest border last month , a 37 per cent increase from the previous month , and a 203 per cent increase compared to March 2017 …

50,000 a MONTH !!! …

imagesTrump’s new focus on hard-line immigration policies appears aimed , at least in part , in drawing a political contrast with Democrats heading into the midterm elections. He has also been under growing pressure from conservative backers who have accused him of betraying his base for not delivering on the wall , and he was set off by images played on his favourite network , Fox News , of a ‘ caravan”  ‘ of migrants making their way through Mexico …

Trump ain’t ‘ betraying anyone ! … The political establishment is playing their game as usual !!! …

Their would be construction underway if he had it his way !!! …

In Texas , which already has about 100 National Guard members stationed on the border , Republican Gov. Greg Abbott , said the president’s decision  ‘ reinforces ‘ Texas’ longstanding commitment to secure our southern border and uphold the Rule of Law ‘… New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez , a Republican , said she appreciated the Trump administration’s efforts to involve states in the effort to better secure the border … Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey , also a Republican , tweeted that his state ‘ welcomes the deployment of National Guard to the border ‘ … Washington has ignored this issue for too long and help is needed ‘…

The leftwing nuts and their democratic party needs to stop ‘ stonewalling Trump’s ( and the peoples’ ) wall !!! …
