USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- We the military and law enforcement of Oath Keepers call on President Trump to deploy infantry and other combat arms troops to the border with Mexico in large enough numbers to secure the full length of the border against all illegal foreign invaders.
The just-announced joint CBP/DOD operation, which will supply military mobility, engineering, medical, and planning support for the Customs and Border Protection (CBP), is a step in the right direction, and may be sufficient to handle the specific mass caravans of illegals, including MS-13 gang members and criminals from the Middle East, that are currently in the news, but it falls far short of what is actually needed to secure the border against the ongoing daily invasion by illegal aliens.
Watch the press conference held on Monday, October 29, here:
We call on President Trump to take decisive action, as the Commander-in-Chief, and deploy not just support personnel, but also active duty combat arms troops, en mass, on our Southern border with Mexico in order to actually seal and secure the entire border and stop the ongoing illegal invasion.
Specifically, we ask President Trump to deploy active duty infantry from both the U.S. Army and Marine Corps; mechanized infantry units; light infantry, such as the 82nd Airborne, 10th Mountain Division, or USMC FAST Companies; air-mobile light infantry, such as the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault); and our larger special warfare units, such as the 75th Ranger Regiment.
That is what it will take – skilled combat arms boots on the ground – to actually put a stop to the daily infiltration/invasion all along our border by the Mexican drug cartels – many of whom have military training (such as Los Zetas).
Those cartels smuggle in tons of drugs in heavily armed “mule trains” (see below video) as well as smuggling in women and children pressed into the cartels’ illicit sex industry slavery, along with all of the other illegal aliens they smuggle in, at a current rate far in excess of the approximately 1,900 who are apprehended by CBP each day. For every one caught, hundreds get through. These violent, militarized cartels are also now taking over small border towns and entire border regions on the U.S. side of the border, just as they did in Mexico (with their infamous offer of “Plata O Plomo” – silver or lead – take their bribe money, or get their bullets).
We are also being invaded by a foreign military force in the form of paramilitary gangs such as Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13), who likewise have military training and work hand-in-hand with the cartels, and by jihadist terrorists, including ISIS, who infiltrate through South America, Central America, and then through Mexico.
