Did I hear that right?

It sounds like he has ordered the military to fire on the immigrants!?!?

6. Just on MSNBC-- Trump authorized lethal response if they throw rocks...

This is complete bullshit. The military has no legal authority to shoot asylum seekers.

33. They have no authorization to do anything other than observe

Posse Comitatus forbids American troops from acting in any military or law enforcement activity on American soil. This is a bs political stunt and just shows, further, that 45 has no understanding of the laws of this land that he is supposed to be executing.

In that press briefing, or whatever it was. He will treat people throwing rocks as attacking the military.

Trumpy just said if they have rocks they will consider them armed and the military can fire on them. Just unbelievable.

13. The caravan's a good 800 miles away from the border

If any of them hit someone at that distance, I'm guessing the Yankees will be there to offer a major league contract before anyone could shoot.

10. This has some info on it.

http://time.com/5435748/border-patrol-has-no-intention-right-now-to-shoot-at-caravan-migrants-if-they-approach-u-s-border/

"If they come here illegally with no legitimate reason to stay, they absolutely will be apprehended and removed immediately," Nielsen said. "Everything is on the table," she added.

Nielsen suggested that border officers would be armed, however, and able to shoot if they felt threatened. "I also take my officer and agents, their own personal safety, extraordinarily seriously," she said. "They do have the ability of course to defend themselves."

14. Asshole will say they are using rocks to justify shooting them

Sounds like a replay of Nickolas 11 of Russia when his soldiers fired on peaceful protesters, killing women and children, in the end he paid dearly for that.

11. I'd be surprised if he hasn't tried to get an airstrike going by now

He would love nothing more than to drop a bunch of HE or napalm on a column of desperate refugees. What a cretin.

15. YES. If you throw a rock you'll be considered armed.

Can you imagine? The military firing at a crowd that someone threw a rock from?

He just blithely said that.

30. Equivalent force.

Tit for tat, if you will.
Troops are only allowed to respond in kind.
If the refugees throw rocks (not at all likely) then the soldiers are allowed to throw rocks back.

I think they are NOT allowed to supply their OWN rocks.
Just return the rocks that are thrown at them.

Many of our volunteer forces are of Hispanic ethnicity, so this could be a very traumatic situation for them.

31. In 2010

The Border Patrol shot and killed a 15 year old boy from Juarez trying to cross the Rio Grande who was throwing rocks at US Border Agents. It caused a huge stir in El Paso and Juarez. Militarizing the border is not the answer. Most of us living on the border are stunned at this move to put US soldiers along the border to "fight" the caravan of refugees.

....and the military will comply with their Rules of Use of Force(RUF) if, and that's a big if, anyone throws rocks.
