President Donald Trump tweeted early Thursday morning that he will send troops and close the border if Mexico lets the latest caravan of thousands of migrants marching north reach the boundary between the two nations.
“The assault on our country at our Southern Border, including the Criminal elements and DRUGS pouring in, is far more important to me, as President, than Trade or the USMCA. Hopefully Mexico will stop this onslaught at their Northern Border. All Democrats fault for weak laws!” Trump said in the first of a series of impassioned tweets on the growing crisis.
Trump said that “in addition to stopping all payments to these countries, which seem to have almost no control over their population, I must, in the strongest of terms, ask Mexico to stop this onslaught — and if unable to do so I will call up the U.S. Military and CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER!…”
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) tweeted video Wednesday of what he described as cash being given to women and children to join the march. “Soros? US-backed NGOs? Time to investigate the source,” the congressman said.
Time to arrest “the source”—Soros, and you know it as well as I do—and give him a fair trial for treason, followed by a first-class hanging.
I expect Trump will be extremely reluctant to actually send troops to close the border for political reasons, which is at least somewhat understandable; he no doubt knows that such a move will in turn send hordes of dimwit Leftist agitators scampering down there too. Those enemy combatants will do their level best to interfere with those protecting our southern border by just about any means you could imagine and probably some any decent person couldn’t, up to and including violence.
Our soldiers will attempt to retain control of the situation through nonviolent means; the ROE for this situation will probably require it, actually. Nonetheless, the chances of one or more of the shitweasel protesters getting seriously hurt or even killed in such a dangerously fraught situation is by no means slim. Should such a thing happen, you can expect a sudden explosion of violent protests in urban areas across the country.
And then things get sporty. And very, very messy.
