Again, and for the thousandth time, Trump has the unfettered ability to secure the southern border using the military and has declined to do so.

I notice that everyone who desperately wants to believe the fairy tale of Trump "doing his best" simply chooses to ignore that most glaring and obvious deficit. He is indeed the commander in chief of the armed forces.

People seem to go to extreme lengths to ignore this because it's the real and true elephant in the room. Everyone voted for a wall because everyone knows that once heritage Americans become a minority then aaaaalllllllll the other shit doesn't matter a jot. Your economic policy. Your foreign policy. All of it, irrelevant. Once your people look like Brazil then you're done. Fucked. It's over.

And ironically that's the one thing he had the unilateral power to avoid. Another single living soul crossing the southern border without permission.

After all. That is fundamentally what a military is for.

To protect your borders.

But I get it. In order to go on playing this silly game of make believe and maintain the cognitive dissonance required to really give it your all, you just have to ignore that one, glaring, blatant, obvious piece of the puzzle. Trump's steadfast refusal to militarize the southern border.

I mean, other than that then of course he's stuck negotiating the perils of a constitutional republic.

The public will judge a man by what he lifts, but those close to him will judge him by what he carries.

That proves that you know absolutely nothing about U.S. law or politics. Since 1878, the Posse Comitatus Act prohibits the use of the U.S. military within the U.S. borders. Its violation results in a felony. The National Guard can only be called up during an bone fide emergency, which is why Trump can only use it as a support supplement at the border and not on the front lines (which he has done).

Quote:The resulting Democratic Congress was at odds with the Republican President Hayes. In response to what was seen as undue influence over the 1876 election, Congress outlawed the practice of posse comitatus by enacting the Posse Comitatus Act (PCA) (as 20 Stat. 152) as a rider to the Army Appropriation Act for 1880. The act stated: "Whoever, except in cases and under circumstances expressly authorized by the Constitution or Act of Congress, willfully uses any part of the Army or the Air Force as a posse comitatus or otherwise to execute the laws shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than two years, or both."

https://www.encyclopedia.com/social-scie...itatus-act

So, if you have said for the thousandth time that Trump has the unfettered ability to secure the southern border using the military you have simply wasted a thousand breaths. If Trump violated this federal statute and placed U.S. troops at the border, then he would be the dictator that his socialist critics claim him to be. I have watched Trump carefully. Regarding the border and immigration enforcement, he has done almost all that he can do. After all, immigration policy is the role of Congress, which has failed to act.

RE: The Boomer Question
The link you posted allows for the use of the military to do precisely what I've said. Did you even read it?

Trump already put the military on the border to a tiny, insignificant degree, so you're kind of played on both counts.

Either he's not allowed to and he did it anyway (albeit to an irrelevant degree) or he's allowed to do it (but he did it to an irrelevant degree).

So did he commit an indictable offence (for no real gain)?
Or did he simply use his powers of office legitimately (for no real gain)?

p.s. Not that it matters. Even my dinky little country uses the military to stop illegal immigrants in our territorial waters. If the great and mighty USA can't even put its soldiers on the border to stop millions of Mexicans simply walking in then what you've got is not a country, it's a joke. IIMT is correct. Frankly at this point you should be begging Trump to toss the Constitution in the bin and become the dictator he needs to be to save your nation. The next Democratic administration will never be voted out ever again and they're going to use the Constitution for toilet paper anyway. They did all through Obama's terms.

Even the Communist nations in Europe recovered because they still had the most important capital of all. Their people.

You guys are on track to not even have that when the penny finally drops.

Like I said, a President can lawfully place troops at the border, but only in a support role to free up law enforcement officers, which Trump has done. As a matter of law, troops cannot act as front-line law enforcement -- only in support roles.

In other words, if there are a total of 50,000 border patrol officers and 30,000 are front line law enforcement officers and 20,000 are in support roles, then the most that Trump can do is send 20,000 troops to fill the role of support, so that those 20,000 support border patrol officers can go to the front lines. So, even if Trump has 100,000 troops available all that can be accomplished is getting 20,000 support border patrol officers to the border. It is not easy to effect change in a divided constitutional Republic with an entrenched bureaucracy.

If you want to see what Trump has tried to do to get more law enforcement officers to the border, which is a relatively thankless job, then read this article:

"Trump ordered 15,000 new border and immigration officers — but got thousands of vacancies instead"
