Will US troopers use force VS. caravan of Central American migrants?

The NOAH Channel is a unique style of posting articles and news which contain just enough satire tone and treatment for amusement and comic relief only. There is no real intention to malign or cause any harm on events, office, agency and personality(ies) mentioned or referred or alluded to.

When you come across posts that are completely factual stories yet outright ridiculous and/or absurd, we stamp our red happy smiley button smileredunhappy Other posts you have to press the buttons SHOW FACTS and HIDE FACTS if only to check which is real and not. Sometimes, you find both smiley and the buttons convenient for fact checking.

smileredunhappyWe are like waiting for something expected could happen as the ‘illegal’ migrants from Central America, but mostly Hondurans, mass and knock at the border between Mexico and US.

This tense expectation is fueled with the alleged leak of information that the White House has reportedly issued a memo authorizing troops stationed at the Mexican border to engage in law enforcement duties and use lethal force against illegal immigrants if necessary.

It must be noted there are over 5,000 active-duty troopers now stationed along the 200-mile border with Mexico. President Trump earlier deployed the US force awaiting the migrant caravans arrival.

Originally, the troops are tasked with bolstering the presence of Customs and Border Protection and the National Guard including construction of barriers, provide reconnaissance and logistics support.

One fork of the caravan is now in the Mexican border city of Tijuana.

Homeland Security officials briefed reporters that over 500 criminals are mixed with the crowd. Mexican security personnel even made arrests already of 34 caravan participants for drugs and public disturbance charges.

This development is worth monitoring.


Avatars are saying:

Read reports that the White House signed a memo late Tuesday authorizing the troops to “perform those military protective activities that the Secretary of Defense determines are reasonably necessary” to protect border agents. These activities include: “a show or use of force (including lethal force, where necessary), crowd control, temporary detention, and cursory search.”

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly reportedly wrote, because “credible evidence and intelligence” have indicated that the thousands-strong horde of migrants “may prompt incidents of violence and disorder” at the border.”
