Trump Administration to send 3,750 more troops to the southern border to mill about wasting their time.

The United States will send an additional 3,750 troops to its frontier with Mexico, the Pentagon said Sunday, as President Donald Trump doubled down on his call for a wall to boost border security.

Soldiers were originally deployed to the border under an order Trump gave before midterm elections in November as “caravans” of migrants made their way to the border to seek asylum from violence and poverty in their own countries.

But the mission, under which troops assist civilian border patrol agents by providing logistical support and installing concertina-wire fencing, has been described by opponents as a political stunt designed to create the illusion of a crisis.

“The Department of Defense will deploy approximately 3,750 additional US forces to provide the additional support to CBP (Customs and Border Protection) at the southwest border that Acting Secretary of Defense (Pat) Shanahan approved Jan. 11,” a statement said.

This additional deployment is for three months, the statement added and will bring to 4,350 the total number of troops at the border.

Their tasks will include “a mobile surveillance capability through the end of September 2019, as well as the emplacement of approximately 150 miles of concertina wire between ports of entry.”

I think this is supposed to be in response to other “caravans” preparing to invade America looking for a job, though for the life of me I cannot remember if the last disease infested group of sex traffickers and drug mules ever arrived at our border.  

“What did you do during the great immigrant zombie apocalypse Daddy?”

“Oh well, I put up razor wire and dug outhouses son. I was in the thick of it.”

Does the military even have a medal for standing around with your thumb up your ass?

    This makes me ill
    ======================================

    Trump’s wall bulldozers have arrived at Texas’ National Butterfly Center

    ….8 law enforcement units around the National Butterfly Center this evening, as the first excavator rolled in & parked on land immediately east of us. Mission PD Officer Cabral was parked on our private property. He said effective tomorrow we will have NO ACCESS to our own land south of the levee. He said, “Effective Monday morning, it is all government land,” and they have orders to prohibit anyone from stepping foot on the levee, which sits on our private property. We know this is illegal and will be taking legal action tomorrow. Stay tuned! #RESIST….

    FYI
    “The U.S. military commander overseeing American troops in the Middle East told a Senate hearing on Tuesday that he was not consulted ahead of President Donald Trump’s surprise decision in December to pull U.S. troops out of Syria.

    “I was not consulted,” said U.S. General Joseph Votel, head of the U.S. military’s Central Command, while acknowledging Trump had publicly expressed a desire to leave Syria at some point.

    The disclosure came as Votel warned about an enduring threat from the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq that will persist following a U.S. withdrawal.”

    Meanwhile the governors of New Mexico and California are withdrawing their National Guard troops from the border, saying it is a waste of manpower and money and there is no emergency.
