Trump says the military will secure the southern border until wall can be built

Trump had not made such a threat of nuclear bombs, but the president has called out Mexico and even said Tuesday that he had discussed a plan with Defense Secretary Jim Mattis to send the USA military to the southern border.

U.S. President Donald Trump hosts a working luncheon with Baltic leaders at the White House in Washington, U.S., April 3, 2018. He further added that he discussed the matter with U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis.

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

He's calling it a "big step". "Pretty much everybody agrees to that, except very stupid people".

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

Currently, officers with U.S. Customs and Border Protection enforce security within 100 miles of any point along the U.S. border, encompassing major cities along the southern border including San Antonio and El Paso in Texas; Las Cruces, New Mexico; Tucson, Arizona; and San Diego, California.

Despite his claim on Tuesday that he is taking an nearly unprecedented step, Donald Trump is not the first commander in chief to deploy troops to the US-Mexico border.

The Pentagon, of course, even with its $700 billion budget, doesn't have the ability to shift billions around without the approval of Congress, and it would be hard to imagine many lawmakers willing to siphon money from badly needed modernization of procurement plans - which produce jobs in home districts - in order to fund a border wall.

Republican Representative Francis Rooney, a member of the Foreign Affairs Committee in the U.S. House of Representatives, said there was a risk of increased violence.

"I would rather have the dealings with immigration be handled in a civil context rather than a military one", Rooney said.

"It's sad for the people in the caravan and it's sad for the people in the United States".

Trump on Tuesday also emphasized his willingness to pull American troops out of Syria, telling reporters, "I want to get out".

Many migrant advocate groups argue that given the scale of the armed law enforcement presence, the extensive surveillance infrastructure, fencing, and numerous checkpoints, the border is, in effect, already militarised. We were very successful against ISIS. "And we're thinking about that very seriously". "We'll see what happens", he said. "That is our mission and our mission isn't over and we are going to complete that mission".

In 2010, President Barack Obama sent some National Guard troops to the U.S.

"I think we should put that new law to a vote in the Senate as soon as possible", he said on Twitter.
