President Donald Trump is sending National Guard forces to assist border authorities along the U.S.-Mexico boundary, according to a presidential memorandum that the White House released Wednesday night.
“The situation at the border has now reached a point of crisis,” Trump said in the memorandum. “The lawlessness that continues at our southern border is fundamentally incompatible with the safety, security, and sovereignty of the American people. My administration has no choice but to act.”
The president said that the nation’s security was under threat from “drastic illegal activity,” including drug smuggling. He also cited the threat of gangs, included MS-13. “The anticipated rapid rise in illegal crossings as we head into the spring and summer months threatens to overwhelm our Nation’s law enforcement capacities,” Trump wrote.
It's about time we have a president that enforces existing immigration laws.
The media is squirting poo over this, and Obama did the same thing at one point.
Not like there's some double standard going on or anything
