EXCLUSIVE: DONALD TRUMP HAS ORDERED THOUSANDS MORE TROOPS TO MEXICAN BORDER, NEW DEPLOYMENT DOCUMENT SUGGESTS



President Donald Trump ordered thousands of additional American troops to the southwest border over the next two months, according to a document drafted last week by Defense Department officials and obtained by Newsweek.

Officials in U.S. Army North, the unit overseeing the border mission, drafted the deployment orders in anticipation of a new request from Homeland Security to aid U.S. Customs and Border Protection in the ongoing joint agency border mission.

The document further demonstrated President Trump’s increasing urgency to address a crisis at the southern border, with the orders being drafted days after Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen resigned on April 7.


Four Defense Department sources told Newsweek the document appears to show between 9,000 to 10,000 more U.S. forces heading to the southwest border over the next few months; however, the Pentagon said Tuesday the document is misleading as not every individual service member in a unit selected to deploy will go.

16. Prepare for Fat Donnie's invasion of Mexico?

Isn't that what Hitler did with Poland? If the Führer were still alive you can be assured he and IQ45 would be BFF.

4. I would imagine we have a large number...

of Latino troops in the military. Perhaps even those who have crossed the border or have family that have. Wonder what they're thinking...

5. 9,000 to 10,000 Military personnel

That is a lot of personnel
So when will they start putting land mines in the ground along the border?
Guess that means more internment camps

9. My biggest fear is that someone will go crazy and start shooting these migrants or some militia type

Yahoo will shoot a bunch of innocent migrants and put them in mass graves and this administration will try to cover it up. I fear with fat Donnie we could come to that. We will be committing crimes against humanity. Everyday he remains in office he becomes more unhinged.

15. Military exercises canceled in South Korea which are designed to promote readiness against

dictator and murderer Kim. Instead, troops are deployed for a political mission against an ally.

Drumpt is dulling the tip of the spear and endangering all of us.

Cowardly, vile, disgusting, wannabe emperor.

17. the head of U.S. Northern Command, " the situation at the border "is not a military threat."



Yet, trump is their CIC, so they obey orders!!

.......Yet, despite the Trump administration’s repeated warnings of a security crisis at the southern border, the head of U.S. Northern Command, U.S. Air Force General Terrence O'Shaughnessy, told lawmakers in late February that while “a secure border does reduce threats to the homeland,” the situation at the border “is not a military threat.”

O'Shaughnessy said he could also see that “any barrier in place to secure our nation does have some ramifications to our ability to defend against a military threat as well.” But, he told lawmakers, “right now, there’s not a specific military force from the south that we are trying to take action against.”

The same day the U.S. military documents were drafted last week, President Trump told reporters at a roundtable event in San Antonio, Texas, last Wednesday that he was “going to have to call up more military” in response to the recent surge in arrivals of asylum seekers at the southern border. The president also appeared to bemoan that military members could not get “a little rough” with asylum seekers.

“Our military, don't forget, can't act like they would normally act because if they got a little rough, everybody would go crazy," Trump said, before appearing to blame “horrible laws that the Democrats won’t change” for the military’s inability to exercise more force.
