Military Not Allowed to Enforce Borders

The very existence of our military is to protect the homeland first and deploy to foreign nations second. It pains me to see such a simple solution negated.

The troops at the Southern border are not permitted to engage with the cartel and illegal aliens crossing the border, Conservative Review reports. Apparently, their job is to alert the Border Patrol of incursions, not to enforce the border itself. Thus, the cartel is able to pass directly in front of the U.S. military, and they are unable to stop them. This seems very odd since the core purpose of a military seems to usually be enforcing the borders of a country to protect the country from foreign invaders.

A Department of Homeland Security attorney anonymously reported to Conservative Review, “Despite the fact that a more aggressive and armed military posture at the border is purely repelling incursions from the cartels and has nothing to do with Posse Comitatus limitations on enforcing interior domestic law, the administration lawyers refuse to view it that way.”

Another anonymous agent explained, “We are outmanned, outgunned, and outmaneuvered, and the cartels have better technology than we do. The cartels are also much smarter than people give them credit for. They know that the military has been given orders only to alert Border Patrol of incursions rather than deterring and pushing them back across the river. As such, they will literally cross in rafts right in front of the military vehicles, often armed with weapons, knowing they won’t touch them and knowing that our agents are so tied down with their strategic weaponization of family units that it will take too long for us to arrive at the scene.”

This is a perfect example of how far left our military has gone politically. Whoever is advising the president on the legality of using our troops to enforce border control is dead wrong. The very existence of our military is to protect the homeland first and deploy to foreign nations second. It pains me to see such a simple solution negated. 

Bottom line, we already have a wall, it’s called the United States Military. Use it!
