As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by Axios:
Several hundred National Guard troops are headed to the border in cooperation with requests from President Trump and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis.
Why it matters: The Trump administration has authorized up to 4,000 troops to deploy to the border, but the National Guard’s role on the border is limited by law.
The article goes on to state the following:
- What they can’t do: The troops are not allowed to arrest, detain or even interact with immigrants attempting to cross the border, unless given special permission by Mattis. The memo said the troops will only be armed in situations where they may need it for self-defense.
- What they can do: Help border patrol in supportive roles such as vehicle maintenance, intelligence collecting, aerial support and building border barriers. The idea is that by the National Guard helping in these ways, border patrol officers will be free to focus on arresting and detaining immigrants crossing the border illegally.
