Default White House authorizes lethal force for troops at Mexico border

Quote:
The White House gave troops stationed at the southern border the OK to use lethal force if necessary — a move that legal experts warn may violate the Posse Comitatus Act, which bars the military from being used for civilian law enforcement.

So, the Armed Forces are not allowed to repel invaders, eh? How about the National Guard under the president? No? Leaves little choice to the "armed to the teeth" civilians, who are not leashed by bullshlt Rules of Engagement. No?

Oh! Oh! Golly! Some help here, while I stand here with my thumbs up my ass watching the invaders cut through my town.

If people trespassing into this country try to harm our troops and border guards then our troops should be authorized to use lethal force. What kind of retard thinks our troops should just stand there and take what ever abuse these trespassers may try to do?

right its against the constitution. a matter for the police. so if there really was an invasion we would send troops to their country or Mexican soil. as it stands the border patrol might be legal but have to check on that. the whole thing is gross. there is a problem but instead of facing it and gathering people to solve it he grandstands for politics. Donald Trump just delegitimized himself as president of anything except maybe a key-less cell.

How is this against the Constitution? The federal government has 3 basic functions. Fighting the wars, facilitating interstate commerce, and protecting our borders.

Borders are federal. Police are local. Why is this hard to understand?

No Salty, we would not send troops to their country. Until the invaders set foot into our country, or send a missile of any sort across our border, they are not invaders. Why is this so difficult to understand?

President Trump IS gathering people to solve it. They are known as the military. This too is not difficult to understand.

The second paragraph of the article in the OP make it QUITE clear...

Quote:
The “cabinet order” was signed by White House chief of staff John Kelly — not President Trump — and authorizes “Department of Defense military personnel” to “perform those military protective activities that the Secretary of Defense determines are reasonably necessary” to protect border agents, the Military Times reported.
This is 100% a DEFENSIVE measure...

The Left will want everyone to believe that if someone simply crosses the border, they could be shot...Nothing is further from the truth...
