I would prefer 14,000 troops on our southern border. With the increasingly violent drug cartels in Mexico, it’s only a matter of time until we see massive bloodshed and a “refugee” crisis that rivals what we saw in Europe in Syria. This is coming, on a scale the US has never encountered on its border before.
“I would prefer 14,000 troops on our southern border.”
Yes, indeed! Should have been done already.
I disagree about a "refugee crisis. With the wall being built, Pres. Trump threatening tariffs on Mexico, their Fedgov putting troops on their borders and dealing with the caravan asylum seekers, I see no great threat of invasion. Plus, Mexican nationals can't claim asylum since their country is a quasi-democracy and they don't abuse civil rights according to accepted international law.
When's the last time you heard of a new caravan heading out of Central America? The word has gotten out that we are improving our border and they will be stuck in Mexico, or not allowed entry at all on Mexico's southern border.
As for the increasing Cartel violence, they are going to over-step and Mexico will ask for direct USA assistance to put those mad dogs down. No more ineffectual CIA missions. Think drones and boots. That's the future I see.
