To make the military troops more effective at the Mexican Border, why don’t you “TEMPORARILY REASSIGN” the 15,000 troops to be BORDER PATROL AGENTS and place them under the direction and service of the head of BORDER PATROL. THEY NO LONGER ARE MILITARY and therefore can actively “CATCH” the illegals as they try to enter the USA. This could be done by Executive Order. As POTUS you should be able to realign, merge, and divest divisions, departments, and personnel who work for the Administration at your will. Even if you have to temporarily discharge the military members from their military duty and issue a personnel policy that says: “that any military personnel who are temporarily discharged can be reinstated to military service at their previous or higher rank by the POTUS within 365 days of the Temporary Discharge and if reinstated they will each receive a $1000 Reinstatement Bonus,” that can likely be done by Executive Order. You can also make sure that the Temporary Discharge does not impact the family members of the US Military personnel who have been reassigned, e.g. Housing, education, Commissary access, etc.
Keep taking bold action to protect the USA and Make America Great Again!
I don’t know…as someone who’s been on the internet steadily since 2008ish, there’s a grand dumbening occurring. People who formerly would at least not be exposed to conspiracies are now only exposed to conspiracies and propaganda.
I think you also have to consider that we just have more people on the Internet now. 10 or 15 years ago it was still more of a niche thing, especially decent quality connections in rural areas. Hell, a little over 10 years ago I was still on dial up.
And of course there is also the rise of social media and the fact that anyone can find a community of like minded folks now, no matter how insane or nonsensical your opinions of the world around you. The crazies feed off one another on places like Reddit, 4chan, or even obscure political forums like the one we are on now.
If there were a budget issue, you must remember that we currently are at the beginning of the budget year. As per actions taken buy the Obama Admin., budgets can be fluid between departments and reconciled by Congress at a future date if needed. In this case though, the Coast Guard already falls under HLS along with Border Patrol so the budget acrobatics that Obama pulled from time to time will not even be necessary. The Coast Guard and Border Patrol budgets come from HLS Budget.
