He was even more shocked when a man with a two-way radio approached them and told them to leave. Begnaud described being confronted by a man who he later called a ‘scout.’ The ‘scout’ is a person who likely works directly for the cartels that control all illegal crossings of humans and drugs across the Rio Grande River…"

OFFICIAL: TRUMP TO SEND NATIONAL GUARD TO SOUTHERN BORDERㅤ
Pictured: Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen
ㅤ”President Trump will soon sign an order to deploy National Guard troops to the United States’ southern border, Kirstjen Nielsen announced Wednesday.
ㅤSpeaking at the White House, Nielsen framed the move as a way to toughen an immigration system that ‘rewards bad behavior,’ including illegal drug smuggling and border crossings.
ㅤ’Border security is homeland security, which is national security,’ Nielsen told reporters. ‘It’s not a partisan issue.’
ㅤIt remains unclear how many troops will be sent to the border, how long they will be deployed and how much the operation will cost.
ㅤ’It will be strong. It will be as many as needed to fill the gaps we have today,’ Nielsen said when asked about troop numbers. ‘We do hope the deployment will begin immediately.’
ㅤ’National Guard troops will serve in a support role and will not actively detain or handle migrants who cross the border illegally, Nielsen said.'”

ㅤ”The findings, shared with The Washington Times, appear to undercut the argument of congressional Democrats, who released a report last month concluding that line agents didn’t support Mr. Trump’s plans for a wall. The report was based on an internal tool used by Homeland Security to evaluate security gaps.
ㅤThe NBPC’s survey, of more than 600 agents in two of the Border Patrol’s busiest sectors, found just the opposite: A stunning 89 percent of line agents say a ‘wall system in strategic locations is necessary to securing the border.’ Just 7 percent disagreed.”
ㅤô¿ô …Boy am I glad the NBPC did this survey. As far as I’m concerned, the border patrol’s opinion about a border wall is the only opinion that counts.
ㅤThe Dem report had me doubting the wall. But as usual, the Dems have been spewing alt-facts for political purposes, while threatening the lives and livelihood of Americans. Build the wall !!

ㅤô¿ô …Pathetic. The President should veto this bill. It’s a total waste of tax-payer dollars. Congress is throwing money at opioid addiction treatment and research, neither of which has ever worked. They’re only funding border fencing, which has never worked. It would be better if Congress did nothing rather than waste my money on horse manure.

ㅤ”Republican leadership is going to fund sanctuary cities in the must-pass spending bill next week, giving Democrats a huge victory while simultaneously undercutting conservatives who put them in power, a senior GOP aide told The Daily Caller News Foundation.
ㅤ’House and Senate leadership has rolled over and played dead on border security. When it comes to a border wall, they say it is not our problem. When it comes to funding sanctuary cities, they say it is not our problem. What they are essentially saying is we are going to pass bills with more Democrats than Republicans,’ the aide told TheDCNF. ‘This is a sign to administration that leadership doesn’t care what the White House wants. Even though GOP members ran on these issues. Conservatives mean it. The administration means it.'”

ㅤ”‘The White House opposes a so-called three for three deal,’ said White House spokesman Raj Shah.
ㅤHe said as a result of a recent agreement in Congress to lift spending caps, ‘the routine appropriations process should yield wall funding in’ an overall spending bill under negotiation.
ㅤ’Securing the border is one of the most vital functions of government and is a core part of any routine funding bill,’ Mr. Shah said in a statement. ‘Separately, we have never stopped working to negotiate an immigration reform package that addresses DACA, stops illegal immigration and secures and modernizes our legal immigration system.'”
