WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump on Tuesday said he planned to use U.S. military forces to protect the nation's southern border with Mexico until there is a border wall and "proper security."


He has to be talking about using the National Guard. I thought The Posse Comitatus Act prevents US Military being deployed on US soil to inforce domestic law.

National Guard. That is exactly what the job is for. Domestic defense against a foreign threat on domestic soil.
Is CA really going to comply with this? I would be shocked.
Even if they do, they'll fuck that up as well.

Probably disarm the military like baby bush did.

How large is the National Guard, I don't have a clue. Aren't a lot of the National Guard members living a civilian life with normal jobs?

That's the point of the national guard. To appear to be a citizen militia as called for in the 2nd Amendment, yet they are not.

They are a heavily federalized military force, that is answerable to the state governor and federal military authority.

I am an old fart. Never ever thought the National Guard was anything close to being sold as a citizen militia. They even now have tv spots with air and whatever national guard that isn't too hard to see that it is millitary.

By the looks of their web site, they don't look like a citizen militia at all.
