Skip to comments.Mattis: Military moving equipment to border ahead of migrant caravan
Posted on 10/28/2018 8:25:52 AM PDT by Texas Fossil
PRAGUE The U.S. military has already begun delivering jersey barriers to the southern border in conjunction with plans to deploy active duty troops there, U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said Sunday as a caravan of Central Americans slowly heads across Mexico toward the United States.
Mattis told reporters traveling with him that details of the deployment are still being worked out but he should have them Sunday night. They will include exactly how many forces are needed.
The additional troops will provide logistical and other support to the Border Patrol, and will bolster the efforts of the approximately 2,000 National Guard forces already there. The new forces are expected to provide logistical assistance such as air support and equipment, including vehicles and tents.
National Guard troops routinely perform those same functions, so it is not clear why active duty forces are being used.
President Donald Trump for the past week has been calling attention to the caravan heading by foot into southern Mexico, but it is still hundreds of miles from U.S. soil.

Very effective in keeping out border invaders confined to WHEELCHAIRS.
‘This could be a great opportunity to get the wall built.’
But one thing — and this is important —
If spooky info comes out too soon some wacko in a black robe could crack a nut with his gavel — “Cease and desist. Racist motivation.”
I’m hoping this equipment includes goodies that make noise, shoot out stink, maybe some heat, microwave, laser thingies.
They can't be serious...
I hate to state the obvious but the leftist organizers of this invasion need blood to further their cause. I’m expecting some ugly pictures.
Thanks for that photo and caption. Helpful info I can now visualize. As if L.A. traffic wasn’t already bad enough.
I can guess that tensions are very high all along the US/ Mexico border. No one knows how bad it could get.
We may need to occupy a sliver on the Mexican side to keep the invaders out, and Trump and Mattis had better start preparing the American people for this. Now. The Mexican government will have to be confronted big time. Politics as usual isn’t going to work.
My first hand Visual is,
Grey Huey choppers cruising
The Border near Campo.
Two groups of Camouflaged
American Troops alongside
Hwy 8 near Alpine,California.
They were stopped on the shoulder
of the Freeway milling about,30 soldiers each.
No markings on Vehicles,
One soldier had a classical guitar.
In 13 yrs. of going to Campo,
I have never seen these indicators.
This happened 10am Friday.
Who thinks 800 troops are going to use arms to turn them back..?
They will handle PAPERWORK.
They won’t quite be handing out soccer balls and teddy bears, but it will be close.
So far I see no difference between this and WhoreHay’s use of the National Guard on the border, a sordid episode during which troops were admonished to...
“RUN INTO THE DESERT IF YOU SEE YOUR DUTY STATION APPROACHED BY ARMED NARCOS.”
Quad 50s would do the trick. Worked in Korea on mass charges.
Perhaps regular American citizens - well armed and with sufficient ammunition, should man the border - and shoot dead these invading turds as they cross over.
If we can no longer trust our elected leaders or military to defend our nation, then we the citizens must take on the responsibility ourselves. To hell with the legal consequences, or the PR bullsh*t - we have a nation to defend and save from invasion.
President doesnt need support from Governor to use Federal Troops.
The black robed ones better hope that the American citizenry does not decide to “crack a few nuts” with their own “gavels” - if you get my drift.
Your thoughts are shared by a great many patriot men, absolutely sickened by the direction America is going.
It’s 800 extra workers to do all the skugs’ phony asylum claims. theyll set down their rifles and help a 7000 strong invasion...to walk right in.
A .50 caliber machine gun makes a lot of noise - as does a 40 MM cannon.
It will stop vehicles.
Now the US is being pro ableist.
