BREAKING: Oh my God.

This is shocking. I knew things were going downhill fast, but I never thought Iíd see the day when the United States authorised lethal force to be used against impoverished refugees, including women and children.

I am appalled.

WTF? Seriously. Trump is just evil.

Lethal force used on refugees on US soil, is the real issue, which makes the situation unique, in modern times. As we plan Thanksgiving festivities, here in New Mexico, I can't resist thinking about all the unnecessary force used by the US Government to slaughter Native American women and children.

8. Well you can be proud of New Mexico today

In this election we have become the most progressive State in the Union. We are the only State that is truly representative of itís citizens and thus the most progressive state in the history of the country.

Little old New Mexico is the first and only State to elect Native Americans. We have gone further than that though in breaking the record by a factor of 2. We have elected the first two House Democratic Native American representatives who also happen to be the first women Native Americans ever in Congress.

Be proud!

5. OMG!

How could a military person carryout such an order? This is a Nazi-style crime and is prosecutable under the Geneva Conventions*.

This monster needs to be impeached asap.

This fills me with extreme sadness and intense hatred for republicans, especially those still supporting Trump.

*"intentionally killing civilians."

9. I think there might just be a military backlash

It would truly be a breach of our constitution for our military to attack civilians. Especially when there is absolutely no indication of them being a threat to our national security.

Iím counting on long standing Constitutional and military policies. Our military has a policy to not shoot and kill unarmed civilians.

6. THIS: "Why migrants won't see armed US troops on the border"

As thousands of migrants in a caravan of Central American asylum-seekers converge on the doorstep of the United States, what they wonít find are armed American troops standing guard.

Instead they will see cranes installing towering panels of metal bars and troops wrapping concertina wire around barriers while military helicopters fly overhead, carrying border patrol agents to and from locations along the U.S.-Mexico border.

Thatís because U.S. military troops are prohibited from carrying out law enforcement duties.

7. This is another PR stunt

For his base that he's wanting them scared, but the military won't be armed, and will not allow that to happen.

10. He doesn't just want them scared

He wants them to feel he is fulfilling their lust for violence against their perceived enemy. He wants to give them a jolt of orgasmic pleasure.

Iím deadly serious about this. No sarcasm smilie here.
