The U.S. military announced a new policy that has Nancy Pelosi waiving the white flag
The American people elected Donald Trump to stop illegal immigration.
But the courts and obstructionist Democrats are pulling out all the stops to block his “Make America Great Again” immigration agenda.
Now, all that changed when the U.S. military announced a new policy that has Nancy Pelosi and her allies waiving the white flag.
Donald Trump enraged Pelosi and other pro-open borders advocates last fall when he deployed nearly three thousand troops to the Southern border to help deal with the migrant surge.
But as Democrats and the courts continue to make the situation worse by blocking any changes to immigration and asylum law to stem the tide of migrants flowing over the border, officials at the Defense Department are taking matters in to their own hands.
The Pentagon will approve a waiver for troops to take a more hands-on approach to stopping illegal aliens from entering the country.
The Washington Post reports:
The Pentagon is preparing to loosen rules that bar troops from interacting with migrants entering the United States, expanding the military’s involvement in President Trump’s operation along the southern border.
Senior Defense Department officials have recommended that acting defense secretary Patrick Shanahan approve a new request from the Department of Homeland Security to provide military lawyers, cooks and drivers to assist with handling a surge of migrants along the border.
The move would require authorizing waivers for about 300 troops to a long-standing policy prohibiting military personnel from coming into contact with migrants.
The Pentagon has approved only one previous request to waive the policy since the beginning of Trump’s recent border buildup, to help provide migrants with emergency medical care. There are about 2,900 active-duty troops and 2,000 National Guardsmen along the border.
Many Americans wonder why politicians send America’s armed forces halfway around the world to defend other countries’ borders while leaving America’s like a sieve.
President Trump is trying to correct that imbalance in America’s national security priorities.
Heading into the 2020 election, Pelosi and the Democrats were counting on the chaos at the southern border to discredit Trump in the minds of voters on his signature issue.
But this move shows the administration is well aware of the stakes and is doing everything in its power to handle the crisis.
