Troops land at border, lay razor wire, ready tent cities, anger narco gangs
[Wash Examiner] The Army has arrived along the U.S.-Mexico border and are moving swiftly to ready for the oncoming "caravan" by laying miles of razor war to steer the thousands of migrants to legal crossings where tent cities are to be erected to hold them.
According to an eyewitness report, troops and trucks are delivering construction equipment, portable bathrooms and security to several areas along the border, the first wave of President Trump’s promise to bolster immigration enforcement with 5,000 or more soldiers.
The show of force is having the beneficial side effect of curbing illegal drug trafficking by the notorious Gulf Cartel, according to the report from the Center for Immigration Studies’ Todd Bensman.
He reported today: "Intelligence friends told me the Mexican cartel across the river, CDG, was angered by the U.S. troop deployment because it slowed the pace of drug smuggling and that the blamed the caravan for this. The cartel, I was told, has threatened the migrants to pay steep fees to cross through their territory or go elsewhere, hence the initial moves to Tijuana. No telling whether this is true. I just heard it from sources with access to such information."
