This isn’t smart; it’s politics
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.
