Use Military To Patrol US-Mexico Border

President Donald Trump declared on Tuesday that he is prepared to deploy American troops to the USA and Mexican border until his long-promised border wall is fully funded and built. "We have disgusting, terrible and very unsafe laws in the United States, and we're going to be able to do something about that, hopefully soon", Trump said.

Speaking at a White House lunch with Baltic diplomats, Trump said the military will patrol the southern border until his wall is finished. "Until we can have a wall and proper security, we're going to be guarding our border with the military", he said, calling the measure a "big step" that had rarely been done before.

Despite his claim on Tuesday that he is taking an nearly unprecedented step, Donald Trump is not the first commander in chief to deploy troops to the US-Mexico border. "We'll see what happens", he said.

"We can not have people flowing into our country illegally, disappearing, and by the way, never showing up for court", Trump said as he repeated his attack on the so-called "caravan" of immigrants from Honduras inching its way to the United States to seek asylum.

Trump has also demanded Mexico break up the caravan of hundreds of Central Americans traveling to the U.S.

Earlier Mr Trump threatened to cut aid to Honduras amid reports of a "caravan" of asylum seekers heading for the US.

Federal law prohibits the use of active duty service members for law enforcement inside the US, unless specifically authorized by Congress. By Monday caravan had reached the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca.

"Under no circumstances does the Mexican government promote irregular migration", the Interior Ministry statement said, adding that unlike in previous yearly caravans, "this time Mexican immigration authorities have offered refugee status" to participants who qualify.

On Monday, Trump dispatched a Twitter message attacking Mexico for allowing the group of some 1,500 immigrants to march toward the United States.

After days of trekking along roadsides and train tracks, the organizers now plan to try to get buses to take participants to the final event, an immigrants' rights conference in the central state of Puebla.

The use of military forces at the Mexican border is not a new idea.

"We need to have a wall that's about 700-800 miles", he said Tuesday. "And I think that it's something we have to do".

"These people should be stopped at the border and vetted out, just the normal process, and we should have plenty of agents down there to do that", Rooney told CNN.

The Posse Comitatus Act, passed after the Civil War, is the main federal law prohibiting the use of American service members in law enforcement, unless specifically authorized by Congress.

The letter from Reed, of Rhode Island, and Durbin, of IL, comes on the heels of reports that Trump suggested the idea to "several advisors" after being disappointed by the amount of money allocated for border security in the $1.3 trillion omnibus.

In a statement issued March 23, Pueblo sin Fronteras said "Refugee Caravan 2018" is demanding that the USA and Mexico "respect our rights as refugees and our right to dignified work to be able to support our families". We have a meeting on it in a little while with General Mattis and everybody.
