Caravan of Thousands Is Pushing Again Toward the U.S. Border

Message 21 of 234

JimC asked, "Why do houses have doors?  Why do people and businesses have fences?"

 

Why do we have a Border Patrol with a $9 Billion budget?

 

Why are the troops leaving the border and going home?

 

Did you know that almost half of all illegal immigrants in America came here LEGALLY and overstayed their VISAs.

I will do that after you answer how you used the system to get someone into the country.


Your posts keep going around in circles attempting to bring every subject into them.  Can you stick with one topic?

 

Simple as far your question ...assist them in obtaining an entry visa and come in legally.  Period.  Now as to your habit of using spellings that are used by other countries.

 

Shouldn't we return to the topic instead of wandering around  on others?

Why do houses have doors?  Why do people and businesses have fences?  Why is there are wall around Hillary Clinton's house in NY?

 

Use your head for something other than a hat rack...

 

There are some folks in this world that have have a desire to harm other people and simply take what they want rather than play by the rules.  Now most people our age know this.

Who cares. Try spending time on the subject. Seem you agree Trump should be impeached if he ok the cancelling of this phony mission.



Again putting words into my posts.  The troops have basically accomplished what they were deployed for.  Especially since the majority was engineers.  Very good practical training instead of 'make work' while field training.

 

You still haven't answered about your spelling of defense using British and foreign terminology. 



I will do that after you answer how you used the system to get someone into the country. Now did you see on Fox Business  TV this evening Lou D and guest accuse the Sec. of Defence of causing a coup by ending the border troops. Lou called for the Sec. to be fired and big changes in the military leadership. Did you see the retired Officers going after Trump on his attack on the Admiral. The military paper editor was on TV saying how the military really does not support Trump anymore. This back up a poll released the other day showing the same thing. Now these are important things to the country. Are we going to see Trump take over the military, or the military oust Trump? What do you think?

Thank you for posting the article that a lot of us have been saying for some time this operation was as the Army said a waste of time and money. Now did Trump approve of this or is the Defence Dept. acting on its own in the best interests of all true Americans. If Trump approved this new plan he should be impeached for using the military for political purposes. Once again the thinking people win out over the far right enablers.



Wouldn't thinking people say the drawdown is because the military has accomplished their mission at the border?  Or will have by 15 December?  They are there to support the CBP.  I would believe that partisan thought would say that it is because it was the Army saying it was a waste of time and money.  The military would say that their job is done.

 

By the way, isn't Defense spelled with a 's' instead of a 'c'; that is unless one is using the British spelling.

Troops at U.S.-Mexican border to start coming home

https://www.politico.com/story/2018/11/19/troops-us-mexico-border-come-home-1005510

 

The Pentagon is set to begin a drawdown of its 5,800 troops from the Southwest border as early as this week, the Army commander overseeing the mission told POLITICO today — even as the approaching caravan of refugees prompted U.S. customs officers to close a port of entry near Tijuana, Mexico.

 

All the active-duty troops that President Donald Trump ordered sent to the border before the midterm elections should be home by Christmas, said Army Lt. Gen. Jeffrey Buchanan, who is running the mission from San Antonio, Texas.

 

Buchanan also confirmed previous reports that the military rejected a request from the Department of Homeland Security for an armed force to back up Border Patrol agents in the event of a violent confrontation.

 

End date is set for 15 December.

But the military is banned from exactly those activities by law so, I guess, they have no purpose on the border other than to satisfy the Trump base. 


If you worked for CBP then you would realize that the military is there to take a workload off the Border Patrol relieving them from support activities duties.  You would probably appreciate the assistance.

 

Then again CBP consists of Customs officials and Border Patrol officials.  Doubtful that customs officials would be involved with apprehending illegals. 

Also I understand that there are different functions in the CBP, not all having to do with border security. So, if you were with the CBP, which was you involved in?  Additionally, it's strange that in all these discussions you are just bringing it up about "your association".
