Probably a move made to appear "tough" on immigration so the Amnesty can be pushed through..
Im not sure if he can somehow pass Amnesty but if he does the backlash will be HUGE.

Just more political posturing from an open borders administration.

Too little, too late.

Yes. Far too few troops being sent with probably not much authority to do much of anything. Timing is very suspicious also.

The troops will be about as affective as UNPROFOR was in stopping the Srebrenica genocide. I am curious to see what "exercises" these 1200 troops are going to perform - it sure seems like a Chinese fire drill to me.
