Referring to the border, Defense Secretary James “Mad Dog” Mattis just dashed all the hopes and dreams of liberals by ordering the National Guard to remain at the border for another year.

Defense Secretary James Mattis give permission to the National Guard troops deployed to the southwest border to stay there for another year, the Pentagon confirmed Friday.

Mattis accepted to give a 12-month extension of the current deployment order, which authorizes up to 4,000 guardsmen to support U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents until Sept. 30, the end of the current fiscal year.

The extension allows the same deployment through Sept. 30, 2019, Pentagon spokesman Lt. Col. Jamie Davis told The Daily Caller News Foundation.
“It’s the same mission, the same setup,” Davis said.

The border deployment, unofficially called Operation Guardian Support, eliminated April 13 in response to President Donald Trump’s call to use the military to guard against rising illegal immigration. A joint operation with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the mission strives to provide surveillance and logistical support to border agents, freeing them up to interdict drug and human smuggling.

At the moment, there are about 2,200 National Guard soldiers deployed to the four states along the southwest border, Davis said. There are 1,145 soldiers in Texas, 115 in New Mexico, 580 in Arizona and 360 in California.

The border states, in order to help to the majority of the guardsmen deployed with Guardian Support, while several other states are providing aviation assets. Other states are taking part in the mission as of June were Missouri, Indiana, Maine, Wisconsin, Arkansas, Tennessee, Kentucky, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Louisiana, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama and Florida, reports Stars and Stripes.

It’s still not clear how the Pentagon will finance a border deployment in the next fiscal year. For the current deployment, Congress asserted reprogramming requests that allow the Pentagon to transfer hundreds of millions of dollars from the Army’s general account to its personnel account for the National Guard.

The same funding mechanism is very likely to be used in FY2019, Davis said.

  1. It is strange to me that while other countries seem to feel that it is the proper duty of their military to guard their national borders, this is not only not the case in the US, but they are specifically prohibited from doing so. That said, I am very much in favor of changing this setup. Let the military protect the country against invaders, no matter HOW they get in. It just seems to me to be a logical part of their job.
    If they can’t protect the country’s borders, just HOW would they prevent an armed invasion, should some other country decide to ship thousands of soldiers into the country?
    In WWII Japan actually discussed an invasion into our national borders, but decided it would run into armed citizens. Could it happen? YES, and it IS happening.

  2. I am sick of waiting for these criminal illegals to be gone… especially the ones running the islamic compounds in America for the deep state & 0bama.
