Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen has requested the deployment of civilian law enforcement officers from several other Cabinet departments to the U.S.-Mexico border as early as next week, according to an internal memo obtained by POLITICO.
In what current and former U.S. officials said would be an unprecedented move, the officers — who in most cases have duties entirely unrelated to border security — would help Border Patrol agents repel what the memo calls “migrant caravans originating from Central America.”

Border Patrol Arrests MS-13 Caravan Member
U.S. Border Patrol agents have arrested a member of the infamous Salvadoran MS-13 gang who admitted to authorities that he traveled with a caravan of Central American migrants who were hoping to qualify for asylum in America.
Agents arrested Jose Villalobos-Jobel, 29, shortly after 6 p.m. on Saturday east of the Calexico Port of Entry on the U.S. side of the border, Customs and Border Protection said in a statement Wednesday.
Geraldo could not be reached for comment.

As you watch the struggle along the border, remember two things:
First, this is an ongoing evolutionary conflict. Every day is a snapshot. You can’t look at it in isolation.
Everyone is learning from everyone else. The leftist advisers are studying the Trump administration and advising the would-be illegal immigrants what their next steps should be.
The U.S. government is watching the illegal immigrants and is modifying tactics to try to keep smothering their efforts, keep them off balance, and block them from getting into the United States. The news media are constantly looking for new ways to embarrass the American government and put the illegal immigrants in the best possible light to build sympathy for them.
Second, there is a huge worldwide audience watching. Every estimate of foreigners who would like to move to the United States runs into the tens of millions — and many estimates run well over 100 million.
All these people are watching and assessing their own chances of breaking the law and sneaking into the United States.
If the American government succeeds in closing down the caravans headed toward our border and blocking them from entering the United States, then these would-be immigrants may conclude they have to wait and follow the legal rules for coming to America.
The future is going to be very different depending on who wins the current war on our southern border.

"If the Democratic Party and its presidential candidates in 2020 are seen as abolish-ICE, pro-amnesty, open borders liberals, they will pull their party out of the mainstream of this nation on the most divisive issue of our time -- the Third World invasion of the West" - By Pat Buchanan
Trump's Crucial Test at San Ysidro
(Excerpt) "According to a new Gallup Poll, concern over immigration and illegal aliens soared from 13 to 21 percent of the public in November, as the No. 1 problem on the minds of the American people.
And this was before Sunday's violent collision at San Ysidro where the Border Patrol fired rubber bullets and used tear gas to stop a mob of hundreds -- out of the thousands of migrants housed in a stadium in Tijuana -- from breaching our border and pouring into our country.
For Trump, the die is cast. Not only are border security, the wall, and his pledge to halt the illegal invasion of his country what got him elected, they appear to be a primary argument for his re-election."

America's border war isn't going away and surrender Donkeys are on the wrong side of the invasion.
