Trump: National Guard Will “Seal” The Southern Border

Donald Trump

Trump took to Twitter today to tout his plan to have National Guard troops head to the U.S.-Mexico border to help with border security.

From Politico:

On Friday, the first wave of troops left Arizona and Texas en route to their deployment.

As he has in the past, Trump slammed Democrats for not being tougher on immigration, but his plan to send troops to the border mirrors similar actions by then-Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush.

Trump tweeted, “We are sealing up our Southern Border. The people of our great country want Safety and Security. The Dems have been a disaster on this very important issue!”

The move begs the question: If the National Guard can “seal” the southern border, why do we need to build a $40 billion wall?
