President Trump’s recent deployment of the National Guard has led to nearly 11,000 arrests.

From the Washington Examiner:

The National Guard’s deployment to the southwest border in mid-April has led to 10,805 “deportable alien arrests” of people who illegally entered the United States from Mexico, a U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokeswoman said Monday. Because guardsmen are military personnel and not law enforcement officers, they cannot apprehend illegal immigrants. But CBP officers and Border Patrol agents apprehended thousands of people that guardsmen helped point out.

The National Guard’s presence also helped lead to the interception of more than 3,300 others who were turned back before they crossed into the U.S., CBP press secretary Corry Schiermeyer said in an email to the Washington Examiner. The Guard’s deployment has also led to an additional 11,686 pounds of marijuana being seized as a result of their work. There are 1,601 National Guard troops at the border assisting with various surveillance, maintenance, and related operations. That number could tick up considerably if the 4,000 National Guard troops President Trump approved on April 4 are called on in a future request from CBP.

Troops are providing support from the air, surveillance backup, and assistance with infrastructure projects like vegetation clearing and road maintenance, not including border wall construction. Another task is to specifically free up agents to leave their desks and get back out to the field. The troops monitoring remote video surveillance systems have then been able to report sightings to a greater field of agents, and thus the number of apprehensions has increased, officials said.

The deployment is funded through September 30, 2018. Several liberal governors have pulled their troops from the effort, but the results are certainly welcome news to a nation concerned with the ongoing threats from gangs, drugs and terrorism. The bottom line is that the border can be secured, if Washington allocates the resources, which is the point that President Trump has campaigned on since 2015.

SeaBees are not allowed to build for other than what they are funded to build. They are not even allowed to fix or repair anything in their own home base. Those have to be contracted out due to acquisition reform which needs to be revamped.

I would bet if the Pres asked, the public would fund the wall tomorrow, building would be started the day after and be completed in a week.

Good job, America now has less 11,000 deportable illegals. Citizens you have your jobs back. Illegals should come in legally to avoid being deported and enjoy the right to work in this country. Don’t let others take advantaged of you, as illegal.

Well what is to prevent these troops from being deputized. OR REGULATED VOLUNTEERS DEPUTIZED. Now here is a thought how about paying veterans without jobs to help out I am sure that they would be grateful for the work and are already trained too boot and can be deputized. Then tell the liberal leftist traitor governors to kiss ass.

Posse Comitatus does NOT & is NOT applicable here . . . This is in fact an international law in that violating any and all countries borders is an open act of WAR. There for the MILITARY can bust them with out violating the law. . . In addition as was passed by the Supremes the Illegals violating the S/W boarder are not AMERICAN Citizens so no laws of AMERICA are in any way can be applied here . . . In all just by that fact it sure did toss a monkey wrench in to the gear drive did it not ?

Wrong, wrong wrong. – They have been federalized. They are the same as the regular Army.

What I don’t understand is how governess can pull toops that have been activated. – They can’t control federalized troops any more then they can command NG units that wee sent to Iraq.

Bottom line. There in the Army now.

I’m for putting American troops on the border: U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force. This is an invasion on our southern border sponsored by the Mexican Government, who is an enemy to the United States. The President does not need approval or special funding to do his Constitutional duty to prevent invasion by foreigners. Time to recognize we are at war with Mexico and their corrupt, violent, criminal regime. The want illegals to invade us and are assisting them so they can eventually take back parts of the U.S. and receive the billions in remittances from their citizens within our country. They also assist other foreigners to illegally cross for money. The Cartels run the government.

A slight correction the National Guard are not Trumps they are the troops of the Governor of the state they came from and can only be called into service by Congress, the ones there are the one volunteered, many Governors refused to send troops both Rep or Dem because it is not in their realm of what the NG is supposed to do that is why they can only be observers.

Title 10 service means full-time duty in the active military service of the United States. The term used is federalized. Federalized National Guard forces have been ordered, by the President to active duty either in their reserve component status or by calling them into Federal service in their militia status.[28] There are several forms:

In other words the Commander in Chief(Read President Trump) can federalize the guard for up to 270 days when ever he deems it necessary with approval from no one. – In other words these guardsmen are his property. I don’t understand how a governor can refuse to “send” troops that are made part of the US Army under title 10.

WRONG for YES the military can bust illegals at the border for they are violating our borders and can be tried as an act of war. Even more so when they are slinging in any kind of controlled items such as Arms, parts for arms, ( like bio weapons, Chemical weapons, nuke weapons, or even actual guns ) then to drugs of any & all kinds not just illegal but too patten over the counter drugs, and YES people who only come to rip off American’s by having jobs, collecting any kind of welfare, schooling ( I don’t care if O’BamYa signed for it . . . D R E A M E R ) steeling cars & trucks, then too kid~Napping, rape, and any other nefarious act regardless if known at the time of the act breach or not ! ! ! As it is and in spite of what we all see in the Peoples Democratic Republic of CALIFORNIA the JACK ASS PARTY will keep burning AMERICA, after all what did you expect from the Peoples Demon Kraut Ratz JACK ASS PARTY ! ? ! ? ! ?

Exactly WHY can they not intercept illegals? As far as I’M concerned, the illegals are ENEMIES sneaking into our country in an attempt to overthrow our government! They vote illegally, take benefits away from US citizens, & trash up where ever they live at. Our military needs to be able to stop them, airlift back over the border, & drop their sorry butts out in the middle of nowhere.

Stopping more illegal attempts to become illegally resident in the USA is just one of the promises that President made and is “getting done”. Obviously the Anti Trump crowd do no want many of his promises to “get done”; hence, their outrageous constant “RESIST” efforts.

I agree with the decl;ration of Pres Trump to safe guard our country. It is only common sense. Thank you President Trump for loving America and the citizens.

If we do not take a stand against the illegals, the USA will be destroyed, and our grand children will not have a Country to be proud of.

It is sad that most democrats have lost their common sense, and over sight to protect the citizens and our nation. Wait a minute, they might haver flunked out of common sense classes back in elementary school, and continued to flunk out in the rest of their so called education

If you support open borders, just wait until one of your own family members become victims of the criminals, and see how fast you change your mind, but WAY TOO LATE.

America, wake up, take a real stand for the future of our Nation and for our grand children. We have paths for legal entry in our Nation, and vetted immigrants have a legal opportunity to become USA citizens through laws that allow they legal entry.

Now that is common sense, and USA laws.

“Several liberal Govenors pulled their troops from the border” see THIS is where I dislike how Trump is handling America. He isn’t strong enough. Dem Judges deciding the fate of affairs for this country, and now Dem Govenors. BULLSHIT! UH UH. No…WRONG. I guarantee that shit wouldn’t have happened under several previous Republican Presidents. So people…you gotta amsk yourselves…what is really going on in this country? Let’s piece it all together. It started with 9/11 and the fake war on terror. Which still goes on. Then it was a made up group called Al Queda. Now it’s the Russians. Trust me…Russia is not our biggest worry. They have no power behind their ideas whatever they may be. Between then and now we had a major ramp up in Agenda 21…we’ve actually seen Military exercise on U.S. Soil which is illegal it was called Jade Helm. There are hundreds of secret prison camps all across America. People have dissapeared. All they while and for decades…Clintons have had dozens murdered. Who has the smarts to figure this out? email me if you think you do. [email protected]

Something which needs to be made perfectly clear is that those who cross our national border, without being given permission, are NOT IMMIGRANTS. THEY ARE TRESPASSERS. As a sovereign nation, we have certain procedures which control who and how many may enter the U.S.A. Invaders who violate the rules are subject to immediate ejection.

I knew this would work if it was ever deployed. It not only benefits the border patrol but also training for the National Guard. They should rotate guardsmen so a lot of guardsmen receive this training. It is shown that it is needed when called upon so get more involved with it. It is a good idea for the guardsmen to also help build the wall. Use the Army Corp of Engineers to do it.

I think this is a great idea using the National Guard to aid the Border Patrol. It helps the Border Patrol to get away from a lot of paperwork to make the arrests and the National Guard can work on the roads, clear brush, help spot drug traffic and human traffic surveillance and they can also help build the wall. I think the Army Corp of Engineers could build the wall too. Regardless, it gives the National Guard good border training and they should be rotated so more guardsmen can get this same experience with the borders since they are our National Security here in the United states. Use them when possible for problems on the border and I bet it will subside substantially.
