Report: Biden Sending 1,500 Active Troops to Border Before Lifting of Title 42

Report: Biden Sending 1,500 Active Troops to Border Before Lifting of Title 42

Biden’s administration is ending the COVID national emergency, including Title 42, on May 11.

Jennifer Griffin at Fox News revealed President Joe Biden’s administration approved sending 1,500 active troops to the border days before he lifts Title 42 on May 11.

Title 42 “allows for the rapid removal of migrants at the border” because of COVID.

Biden’s administration is ending the COVID national emergency on May 11.

Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has concerns the influx of illegal immigrants will grow once Title 42 goes away:

The U.S. soldiers would come from a variety of active duty Army units and would serve in mostly administrative and transport roles to free up law enforcement and Border Patrol, according to two senior U.S. officials familiar with the deliberations.

Officials said the troop deployment would be similar to deployments to the border ordered by former President Donald Trump. The troops would be armed for self-defense but would not assist with law enforcement.

Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has previously warned migrants that illegal entry into the U.S. “will result in removal.” The Biden administration is encouraging migrants to use the CBP One app to schedule appointments at points of entry where their asylum claims can be processed.

Biden has already angered the left with other immigration decisions. The troops will not help him:

In preparation for the end of Title 42, the Biden administration has developed a new asylum rule that will bar migrants from being eligible to claim asylum if they have crossed into the U.S. illegally, have not scheduled an appointment via the CBP One app, and have not claimed asylum in a country through which they previously passed.

While [DHS Secretary Alejandro] Mayorkas has stressed that the “presumption of ineligibility” will be rebuttable and there are exemptions made for some people, it has enraged some Democrats and immigration activists who claim it is similar to the Trump-era transit ban and that it encroaches on the right of anyone from anywhere in the world to claim asylum at the U.S. border.

Sending troops to the border is likely to anger the left and draw more comparisons of Biden to Trump.

Deportations have gone down under Biden despite the White House declaring otherwise.

1500 is a JOKE. The absolute bare minimum so he call spew BS about how he was ‘working on it’.

What are they going to do? Help the Border Patrol with their babysitting and chauffeuring duties?

    EXACTLY. That’s how they’ll be used. It’s the new WOKE Army.

      They we well trained in an diversity, equity and inclusion issue that might arise

      This is a very serious situation. After an illegal was almost run over by a border patrol vehicle last week, it was determined that we need border crossing guards. Active duty military will be trained to blow a whistle, hold up one hand to stop border patrol vehicles, while using the other hand to wave illegals safely across the border.

Border Security Theater begins. “Most secure border ever! Sending actual military troops there!”

5 million illegal immigrants and $150 billion billed out of taxpayers to support them, plus untold drugs, crime, child abuse and sex trafficking, and terrorist infiltrators.

And at least 1/4 of the GOP Senate wants to give them amnesty for the chamber of commerce bucks.

    CommoChief in reply to PrincetonAl. | May 2, 2023 at 7:14 pm

    1/4 might be too low a percentage. Though to be fair there are some previously muted voices among the GoP Senate with the opposite view that are joining their historically more vocal colleagues in denouncing the influx.

How active are they?

The current administration has found the easy way to avoid illegal immigrants attempting to find holes in the wall. Just line them up at border checkpoints, have them recite the “I want asylum” statement (printed on cards for their convenience), and ship them wholesale into the country with a fictional date for their court hearing ten years or so away.

Election season is approaching. Biden and his party don’t want to appear to hate Americans but so much. For now.

Report: Biden Sending 1,500 Active Troops to Border Before Lifting of Title 42

This is just more treason – these troops are going to be used to give aid and comfort to the invasion by speeding up processing to bring more invaders in and distributing them through American territory.

TREASON. Nothing new, though.

We all remember the covid emergency, the one where a lot of working Americans were forced to choose between the vaccine and their jobs.

Except for illegal aliens. Now, if they were compelled to be vaccinated when they were processed (wouldn’t they be the prime candidates for emergency vaccination?), the influx would have come to a screeching halt and we wouldn’t be blessed with millions of huddled masses yearning to be free. That would seem to have been a common sense solution, but was somehow skipped. An oversight, I’m sure.

Those 1500 will process the influx, nothing more

Sounds good but they will merely act as traffic cops to insure the unimpeded flow of illegals into the country.

paracelsus | May 2, 2023 at 3:50 pm

There is now unequivocal evidence that the person in the White House that some call POTUS has done more to destroy the country once known as the United States States of America than any foreign enemy at any time in our history.
Will he be, not impeached, but tried for treason?

If there will be no more emergency why are covid shots still being sold? Their EUA presumably evaporates the day the emergency is canceled.

Can any of you imagine living on the border? Your life and property are worthless and Biden and his admin have failed in every way to uphold the Constitution to protect our borders from invasion. The fact that the illegals are not armed makes no difference, it is an invasion. I have a sneaking suspicion that the RINOs are just as much to blame as the Dems because we all know big agro-business is always on the hunt for cheap labor. J6 prisoners and this alien invasion should be the first two things that come out of any Republican’s mouth EVERY DAY! Crickets!

Looking at the mess at the U.S./ Mexico border, obviously something is seriously amiss. Perhaps troops being sent will provide the additional manpower seemingly needed. Obviously, action from our government is needed, as the Mexican government is either unable to control its side, or not interested in so doing. Correct me if I’m in error.

Additional note: every country in the world makes some effort to control its borders. Nothing wrong there. Strange to note, as some would have it, should this country so act, the end of the world is upon us. How come the difference.

Ok, is FJB sending already on active duty or the ready reservists he just called up? Kinda mealy-mouthed to say this when other things are going on.

[catastrophic] [anthropogenic] immigration reform (CAIR)

Meanwhile, Lightfoot is demanding to erect a wall in order to prevent illegal aliens from entering Chicago… diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI).

    Lightfoot called for that wall back in September? How are they coming on that? I suggest they get busy and do some urban renewal this summer. Demolish all the blighted areas of the city (that’s most of the city) and use the materials to build the wall. They probably have enough materials to build something akin to what the Israelis have built along portions of their border.
