Is Trump right to send the National Guard to the border?
President Trump signed a proclamation Wednesday night to deploy National Guard troops to the southern border immediately in response to what the administration described as an "unacceptable" flow of illegal immigrants and criminal activity, as well as loopholes in immigration enforcement.

Rather than directly enforcing the border by apprehending migrants, the troops are expected to assist the Border Patrol in a support role, conducting tasks like intelligence gathering and administration.
