This isn’t smart; it’s pol­i­tics

The Dallas Morning News - - Editorials | Letters -

See­ing pic­tures of the U.S. Army to­day putting up barbed wire on the U.S. bor­der re­minded me of my re­cent visit to the Korean Demil­i­ta­rized Zone. Send­ing 15,000 troops to the bor­der, away from their fam­i­lies, is not the an­swer to a mi­grant car­a­van that is only in south Mex­ico. Yes, we must pro­tect our na­tional sovereignty and bor­der, but this amount of force is not nec­es­sary. Politi­ciz­ing our mil­i­tary is a slip­pery slope.
