The Trump administration is beefing up its resources at the U.S.-Mexico border as it continues to deal with a massive influx of illegal immigrants.

Acting Defense Secretary Richard Spencer approved Tuesday night the deployment of 1,100 active-duty troops and another 1,000 Texas National Guard personnel to the U.S. southern border, Department of Defense spokesperson Maj. Chris Mitchell said in a statement to the Daily Caller News Foundation.

The Texas National Guard troops will be split up in their duties, with 750 personnel to “provide supplemental holding support to [Customs and Border Protection] at CBP’s temporary adult migrant holding facilities in Donna, Texas, and Tornillo, Texas,” and the other 250 will provide “port of entry (POE) enforcement support at CBP-designated POEs and airports in Texas to enhance border security and improve the flow of commercial traffic,” Mitchell said. More

Send as many troops as needed to secure our borders. Bring our military home from foreign soil to protect us. The crisis worsens every day. Democrats should be ashamed of their neglect and downright obstruction to alleviate any or all of the problem. You are going to witness a 2020 Republican landslide like never before in history.
