Trump deploys military to secure US-Mexico border to check ‘illegal migration’

WASHINGTON(TIP): President Donald Trump,
 April 5, signed an executive order directing the deployment of military
 along the US-Mexico border to fight illegal immigration, asserting that
 the situation had reached “a point of crisis.”

The announcement came a day after Trump 
said he intended to deploy the National Guard to the US-Mexico border 
until his administration was able to deliver on his campaign promise to 
build a wall to bolster security.

Given the importance to secure borders 
for national security, the National Guard, in coordination with 
governors, will remain in a support role until Congress takes the action
 necessary to close the loopholes, the White House said.

Trump on Thursday told reporters aboard 
Air Force One that a large portion of the troops he is planning to 
deploy to the U.S.-Mexico border would stay there until the border wall 
was built. Around 2,000 to 4,000 National Guard troops will be deployed 
to the area, Trump said, similar to actions by Presidents George W. Bush
 and Barack Obama.

“The situation at the border has now 
reached a point of crisis. 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,” Trump said in his memorandum to the Defense Secretary, 
Attorney general and the Secretary of Homeland Secretary.

The threat is real, Homeland Security 
Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen told reporters at a White House news 
conference. “We continue to see unacceptable levels of illegal drugs, 
dangerous gang activity, trans-national criminal organizations and 
illegal immigration flow across our border,” she said.

This threatens not only the safety of 
American communities and children, but also the very rule of law, on 
which, the country was founded. “It’s time to act. So, let’s talk a 
little bit about that today,” she said.

“In an effort to prevent such a 
consequence, the President has directed that the Department of Defense 
and the Department of Homeland Security to work together with our 
governors to deploy the National Guard to our southwest border to assist
 the Border Patrol,” she said.

Border Patrol recorded 37, 393 arrests 
on the southwest border in March, according to data released by US 
Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

In the last 15 months, she said the Trump administration has taken major steps to methodically strengthen border security.

“We began the first new border wall 
system construction in close to a decade, we modified our asylum system 
processing to more quickly adjudicate claims and we ended so-called 
temporary immigration program,” Nielson said.

Ruing that the system rewards bad 
behavior, she said it does not punish law breakers. “It undermines our 
nation’s economic interests. Make no mistake, interdiction without the 
ability to promptly remove those without legitimate cause is not border 
security, it is not national security,” she asserted.

“We will not allow illegal immigration 
levels to become the norm. More than 1,000 people a day, 300,000 a year,
 violating our sovereignty as a nation will never be acceptable to this 
president,” she said.

Meanwhile, President Enrique Peña Nieto 
of Mexico blasted President Donald Trump in a video message on Thursday,
 April5, vowing that “nothing and no one stands above the dignity of 
Mexico” and adding that the U.S. president’s main gripes were Congress’s
 problem, not Mexico’s.


“If your recent statements are the 
result of frustration due to domestic policy issues, to your laws or to 
your Congress, it is to them that you should turn to, not to Mexicans,” 
Peña Nieto said in the message, according to a translation provided by 
his office.
