I don't get it. What are the troops going to do? Shoot unarmed women and children? Arrest them? Body slam anyone who dares try cross the border? What, exactly? Will they have M1A1's to back them up? Air support? Inquiring minds want to know.

Left wing circle jerk equals topics that are indefensible for your side. There seems to be a lot of them lately.

The military is doing exactly what it is supposed to do, protect the borders


My entire existence is a failed gotcha

Why do armed cops wear uniforms?

Yeah, its a waste to send troops when one A10 could eliminate the whole problem pretty quickly

Another epic Trump fail. Maybe if he put in more than 3 hours a day at the office he could pay attention to a few important details.

Every Guatemalan I've met has been a humble, good hearted person. Always liked working with them. Hard working and they don't complain. That's from my years working in different aspect of the construction industry.

Your response illustrates perfectly the idiocy of the gesture.

They are not going to strafe civilians with m134 gattling guns.

So, seriously, what tactics will they employ? WTF are they going to do?

military will be there to provide meals, set up shelters, logistics etc but can't actually do any policing. sounds like to me they're there to provide humanitarian relief to the migrants. Way to go Cheeto! Your plan is back firing on the intended motive. Your incompetency is going to help them

The way Trump tells it, hes setting up detainment camps and not letting people out anymore.
