    Mattis Shoots Down Reporter On Troop Deployment To The Border: This Isn't A Stunt

    Mattis Shoots Down Reporter On Troop Deployment To The Border: This Isn't A Stunt

    We have an illegal alien horde approaching our southern border. No, we have multiple hordes approaching the border. With local police in Mexico unable to stop them, the closest caravan is 1,000 miles away from the border. The Trump administration has decided to deploy thousands of troops in hopes of preventing scores of illegal aliens from flooding into the country. It’s been slammed as a 2018 election ploy. For Secretary of Defense James Mattis, this isn’t a stunt. Yesterday, he shot down a reporter who made that insinuation during a presser with South Korea’s defense minister (via Fox News):

    Defense Secretary Jim Mattis emphatically denied a reporter's suggestion Wednesday that the deployment of thousands of active-duty troops to the U.S.-Mexico border is part of a political stunt ahead of next week's midterm elections.

    "We don't do stunts in this department. Thank you," Mattis told a reporter who posed the question after a Pentagon meeting with Mattis' South Korean counterpart. The defense secretary added the deployment was to provide "practical support" to the Department of Homeland Security and was based on a request from U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

    The deployment is in response to the approach of a caravan containing an estimated 4,000 Central American migrants. The Pentagon said late Wednesday that it had identified 7,000 who will be participating in the mission at the border. Approximately 2,000 National Guard members previously have been dispatched to the frontier over the past six months.

    The White House repeatedly has warned members of the caravan that they will not be allowed into the United States. In an interview with Fox News' "The Ingraham Angle" Monday night, President Trump vowed that the migrants "are not coming in" and said the administration would build "tent cities" to house asylum-seekers.

    "We're going to have tents, they're going to be very nice and they're going to wait and if they don't get asylum, they get out," the president said.

    Now, politics is politics. There’s no doubt that while Mr. Mattis doesn’t think this is a stunt, it’s undoubtedly going to reassure disillusioned Republicans that we finally have an administration who will enforce our immigration laws. At the same time, this is a serious national security concern, so Mattis probably views it as such—as he should. Regardless of whatever rests on the periphery of this action, this is one of the reasons why Trump won the GOP nomination and the 2016 election. He was going to get tough on illegal immigration.  

    The number of troops may go as high as 15,000 (I posted elsewhere).

    And it should be treated as an invasion. Which it is. That allows the military to be the military and stop it in its tracks. If they do the political thing and treat it as a policy step to arrest and detain people, put them in temporary quarters, etc, then the military can't do much on their own. Posse comitatus prevents it. About all they could do is provide more eyes, alert where people might be getting through, transport ICE to places where they're needed immediately, and maybe build some reinforcements. But they couldn't do anything physical with any of the invaders. Direct involvement is the most important part.

    But the media thinks this is a "stunt" to prevent the Democrats from holding their rightful, entitled place in history as supreme beings, all knowing and all powerful. Because that's how liberals play things.

    WHY THEY SHOULD BE TREATED AS INVADERS

    Post  sinister_midget on Thu Nov 01, 2018 11:47 am

    Caravan migrants different, more violent, than previous migrant groups -U.S. military

    To hear the press and its narrative allies tell it, the Honduras migrant caravan is little more than thousands of mothers and toddlers spontaneously fleeing violence in their home countries. The flight is little different from that seen in previous caravans. Any concern about crime or violence is a "scare tactic," or "lying," or "racism," and there's no evidence any of the migrants are criminals. President Trump's warnings about the matter are simply "factually wrong."
     
    Actually, a different picture is emerging.
     
    Specifically, signs are mounting that far from the exodus being a Madonna-and-child in flip flops narrative, the military-aged unemployed males dominating this wave of caravans are far more violent than reported. That's not a scare story from some rightwing militia group, but the actual view of the U.S. military, whose 5,000-plus troops have been dispatched to meet the caravans and keep them from storming the U.S. border and entering the U.S. illegally as they already did in Mexico.  Asked if the dispatch was all a border stunt by a reporter, Secretary of Defense Gen. Jim Mattis icily replied: "We don't do stunts in this department. Thank you."
     
    According to the Military Times:

    Publicly, the top commander in charge of homeland defense will only say the military does not yet have a full understanding of what threats will surface from the caravan. However, some violent acts that have taken place within the caravan and the way it has forced its way through the border between Guatemala and Mexico has raised concerns that the makeup of the population traveling differs from the past.

    “We are working closely with [Customs and Border Patrol] to understand the makeup and the nature of this caravan,” said U.S. Northern Command chief Air Force Gen. Terrence O’Shaughnessy. “This caravan is different than what we’ve seen in the past.”

    That would certainly go for the not just the first caravan headed our way, but the chain reaction of the second, third and more groups following. According to theDaily Mail:

    The second migrant caravan, believed to be armed with bombs and guns, crossed into Mexico on Monday despite a huge police presence.

    Hundreds of migrants following in the footsteps of the first caravan heading to the U.S. border crossed a river from Guatemala.

    ...and...

    The second group back at the Guatemalan frontier has been more unruly than the first that crossed. Guatemala's Interior Ministry said Guatemalan police officers were injured when the migrant group broke through border barriers on Guatemala's side of the bridge.

    Mexico authorities said migrants attacked its agents with rocks, glass bottles and fireworks when they broke through a gate on the Mexican end but were pushed back, and some allegedly carried guns and firebombs.

    There was also this:

    The standoff at the riverbank followed a more violent confrontation that occurred on the bridge over the river Sunday night, when migrants threw rocks and used sticks against Mexico police. One migrant died from a head wound during the clash, but the cause was unclear.

    The first migrant caravan isn't without reports of violence, either. According to Breitbart Texas, they've already begun using their guns:

    Mexican authorities arrested two Hondurans who allegedly shot at federal police officers escorting the migrant caravan across the southern state of Chiapas. The attack follows shortly after government warnings about Molotov cocktail attacks around a second caravan near the border with Guatemala.

    The attack took place near Ignacio Zaragoza, Chiapas, when members of Mexico’s Federal Police were escorting the migrant caravan as part of “Operativo Caminante” or “Operation Walker” across the southern border state. According to Mexico’s Interior Secretariat, two men identified only as 22-year-old “Jerson” and 17-year-old “Carlos” spotted the group of police officers guarding the caravan and began firing at them.

    The attackers’ pistol jammed, allowing police officers to arrest them without any injuries. Federal authorities seized a .380 caliber Glock with nine rounds still in the magazine.

    Meanwhile, back in the U.S., the Border Patrol has warned Texas landowners at the international line to prepare for armed conflict from the caravan:

    The U.S. Border Patrol this week reportedly told Texas landowners along the U.S.-Mexico border to prepare for a possible influx of "armed civilians" on their property as the migrant caravan moves closer to the U.S., a report said.

    The Associated Press reported that these civilians say they intend to support the National Guard and Border Patrol to prevent the illegal migrants from crossing into the U.S.

    It's an astonishing departure from the picture the mainstream press has been painting for us about the supposedly harmlessness of the migrant caravans, and it's completely in line with the warnings President Trump has made about the possibility of criminals within the caravan ranks. If that's not reason to distrust the mainstream press's "narrative" reporting, what is?

    The press assumes they'll be isolated from the violence the invaders are bringing. Their overlords, the Communist Democrat party, assume the same. But they also keep a backup plan to escape to a safer country should their plan to destroy this one threaten them. Some in the Communist leftist media have a similar escape plan, though many aren't aware they'll need one.

    But the bottom line is, this is an invasion. An invasion funded largely by George Soros, blessed to the Marxists in the Democrat party, encouraged and celebrated by leftists bent on destroying what this country has been. It's aided and abetted by the UN, China, middle eastern terrorist organizations and a group of (sometimes misguided, and sometimes well aware of what they're doing) church organizations.

    The invasion should be treated as just that.
