President Trump wants military to do border control

Donald Trump's tweets come amid tense negotiations over NAFTA between his administration and that of Mexican President

He says, "We're going to be doing things militarily until we can have a wall and proper security".

Trump said other countries are laughing at the USA immigration laws, which he said "are so weak and so pathetic" that the migrants would be allowed to enter.

"Until we can have a wall with proper security, we are going to be guarding our border with our military".

Trump says during a lunch with Baltic leaders that he's spoken with Defense Secretary Jim Mattis about the idea.

"The big Caravan of People from Honduras, now coming across Mexico and heading to our "Weak Laws" Border, had better be stopped before it gets there". The President had threatened to end the NAFTA agreement if the Mexican government did not stop the caravan and to end US aid to Honduras.

Mexico's government has said such "caravans" of mostly Central Americans, including many escaping violence in Honduras, have occurred since 2010. "We have awful, disgusting and very unsafe laws in the United States, and we're going to be able to do something about that, hopefully soon", Trump said. "As of 12 minutes ago, it was all being broken up". Under President George W. Bush, National Guard forces were used between 2006 and 2008 for things like border-related intelligence analysis but did not have a direct law enforcement role, according to the Pentagon.

Several hundred National Guard troops were already on the border to combat the cartels. -Mexican border to provide intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance support to border patrol agents.

Trump had previously alluded to the use of the military on the border with a tweet about "M". Democratic Senator Brian Schatz said Trump should have to ask for approval from Congress.

"The hard part, I think, is in front of us, and that is stabilizing these areas, consolidating our gains, getting people back into their homes", Votel said. "I predict fewer than 20 votes".

Rep. Francis Rooney (R-Fla.), a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, appearing on Fox News, said he advocated abiding by "the normal process". While I was on a reporting trip to the Rio Grande Valley last month, Border Patrol agents told me that when unaccompanied minors began showing up in large numbers in 2014, it swamped their resources and left vast stretches of the border un-monitored.

Trump's call for troops at the border comes as he continues to press Congress to approve $25 billion in funding for the "big, beautiful" southern border wall he promised on the campaign trail.
