This decision makes all the sense in the world especially when you see what’s happening in Tijuana.
Portions of the Honduras caravan landed in Tijuana, and it was a huge melee. The crowds, the violence. This isn’t what America signed up for, and we definitely can’t have illegals waltzing into this country unchecked.
Correct me if I am wrong but, Posse Comitatus was adopted during the Hayes Administration to placate Southern State governments chaffing under Federal
Post-war occupation. It does NOT block a president from using Federal Troops in case of an emergency like this invasion.
The memo says “Department of Defense military personnel” can “perform those military protective activities that the Secretary of Defense determines are reasonably necessary” to protect themselves and all U.S. Customs and Border Protection personnel, including “a show or use of force (including lethal force, where necessary), crowd control, temporary detention. and cursory search,” according to the Military Times.
Approximately 5,800 active-duty troops and 2,100 National Guard troops are stationed at various regions of the southern border.
Legal experts see a potential issue with the overnight decision because it may conflict with a law that was passed in 1898 regarding how military can carry out its duties in domestic situations. The Posse Comitatus Act gives military troops the right to defend themselves. It was intended to ensure federal troops did not have the power to act as law enforcement in states.
The law would be violated if troops either “perform tasks assigned to an organ of civil government” or “perform tasks assigned to them solely for purposes of civilian government,” according to the Congressional Research Service.

It would help for a National emergency Martial Law buffer zone along the border to release a lot of the legalities that the lefty lawyers and judges try to use to run immigration instead of the president. Failing that, at least a border closure and set immigration allowances to zero until the wall is built, phony circuit judge restraining orders are lifted, etc.
Why aren’t the Presidents advisors reminding him of some of the broader powers he has at the touch of a pen, like:
“The exclusion of aliens is a fundamental act of sovereignty … inherent in the executive power,” the Supreme Court said in 1950. And lest there be doubt, Congress adopted a provision in 1952 saying the president “may by proclamation and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens and any class of aliens as immigrants or non-immigrants” whenever he thinks it “would be detrimental to the interests of the United States.”
At the first rock or any other object thrown at the troops, an M855, Green Tip, should be going the other way. If it over penetrates and hits the person behind the intended target, oh well. That’ll stop the object throwing pretty quick.
