In the absence of a real compromise about border security between Democrats and Republicans, President Trump has sent thousands more military troops to the southern US border. What do you think?

No Military on our borders, unless they are there to ensure that the American Terrorists (Republicans) do not re-enter the United States after they have been exiled.
Maybe. However I feel that the largest threat to our country by far is the Trump administration and the hundreds of swamp creatures within it.
Any Soldier, Marine,Sailor, or Airman has the authority to apprehend law breakers and hold them for Arrival of Civilian Authorities! We are sworn to the Constitution and thusly sworn to Law! If we make arrests then our officers must give the order to make an arrest! UCMJ! Yes! The Rehular Armed Forces can be used to put down rebellion and protect the borders of the United States of America! 🇺🇸 O am Not Wrong! And Thank a Vet!
OK, so Trump wants the military on our southern border. Why? Have we gone to war with Mexico? Have the Governors of the border states asked for the military? Have the mayors of border towns said they are in mortal danger because of the influx of people? I would imagine objective people have answered no to each of those questions. That leads me to believe that we do not need the military at our border with Mexico. Don't get me wrong, border security is a good thing, but it needs to be based in fact, not from an amateurs three-word chant to a group that does not really understand the problem.
We should actually be working toward having no barrier at all considering we are not at war with Mexico.
If you’re not a democrat, yes it makes sense to have military at the border. If you are a socialist I mean democrat that’s your bread and butter, of course the criminals don’t want the border secured
I actually think the border is better served by our troops at this time. No negative reflection on the border patrol. The military is better trained for confrontations. And I think it’s a matter of time before the tensions escalate to an armed confrontation.
The military is to defend the US against armed aggression, not be policemen. They have no real authority to detain, hell fire back if needed, unless authorized by Congress. The Constitution was set up this way to prevent the government calling out the military anytime a politician can’t get their way.
There is absolutely a difference between the military and sworn law enforcement; the two shall not mix. The Posse Comitatus is there for a reason, and our military is NOT to be used for domestic law enforcement. Our lawmakers know this, but our president does not. So on which side will the GOP fall: the Constitution, or Trump?
Why do the democrats think it is acceptable to put the men and women of the Border patrol as the first and only line of defense on our border, even Obama’s former Border Patrol Director agrees with a wall or barrier, and why are democrats now concerned the military at the Border, Obama had troops there as well.
Democrats in Congress refuse to address border security, leaving Americans vulnerable. Until the Democrats take their oaths of office seriously we need military support along our border
The border is being overrun where there is no barrier. The people that live and work there agree. The media are just talking heads pushing an agenda to make the corrupt Democrats rich. And the brainwashed rat it up No facts just parroting like they’ve been trained to do
What makes sense is immigration agents and embassies. Turn people away, like Canada does when Americans try to cross their border illegally. You don’t see them wasting time and money dealing with us. And they have plenty of reasons to try and keep us out.
The military is not allowed to work as a police force. They cannot use weapons, or hold people in any way. They are to protect us from foreign armies, not immigrants. This is a waste of money & people.
They cannot police our border There are laws The laws are in place for many reasons How stupid are the people in charge?
The use of our military for border guards or whatever this administration is using them for is not their primary role. We are not at war. I expect Congress to put a stop to this as soon as possible. We have been misled by false statements by the President re so-called danger. Get the truth out to America.
We need to have more allies than enemies. We need our military in other places. We there is more war type things going on. This is Trumps personal war, no America's war
Is there a difference between a president and a Russian agent? Not when it comes to Trump.
Until congress secured our border.
Our troops should not be sent to the border to make a political statement.
It’s Unconstitutional to use the military for domestic police action
