The White House is authorizing military personnel at the southern border to engage in law enforcement roles and use lethal force against illegal immigrants if necessary.
The cabinet order signed by White House Chief of Staff John Kelly on Tuesday adds crowd control and detention to the duties of troops deployed to the border, who have already been tasked with the protection of Border Patrol and customs agents, as well as fortifying the border. As of Wednesday there are about 5,900 active duty service members at the border along with about 2,100 National Guard troops.
This Thanksgiving I give thanks for the Man in White House who cares about the people and security of The United States of America.
Happy Thanksgiving Mr. President.
And to Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the Democrats, choke to death on your dinner and rot in Hell.
