President Trump could order thousands of American soldiers deployed to existing military bases near our borders to actually defend the USA. This was the primary role of the US Army before World War II. The US Border Patrol didn’t even exist until 1924.

This would cost little and could be paid for by existing Army operational and training funding, and could be done in a matter of weeks. Congress would have no say and no permission is required. Anyone who doubts this has been confused by corporate propaganda and can learn from reading this: Defending America at the Border,  www.G2mil.com, 2015.

Carlton Meyer, a former Marine Corps officer who participated in military operations around the world, writes at G2mil.com.

James Fulford writes:I've argued this for years myself—in 2006, I wrote in a note to a Steve Sailer column that:

 It's been repeatedly suggested that using the Army for border control would violate the Posse Comitatus Act, designed to prevent the Army from being used on Americans. (E.g. Raoul Lowery Contreras, in the middle of an attack on us here: "It is illegal to put troops on the border.") No, it wouldn't. Aside from the multiple modern exceptions to the Act, what is at issue here is a matter of guarding the border from foreign invaders. This is what armies are for.”
I said the same thing in a 2010 article called  Memorial Day, The Posse Comitatus Act, and Immigrant Enemies. The Border Patrol is an excellent organization, but we are now past the point where the problem is small enough to be contained by a civilian law enforcement organization
