Trump 'looking for land mines' in border deal; more troops heading to U.S.-Mexico border

WASHINGTON (AP) The Latest on congressional border security negotiations and President Donald Trump (all times local):

4:45 p.m.

U.S. active-duty troops from dozens of units around the country are flowing to the southern border, as part of the latest plan to send 3,750 new forces to beef up surveillance and install more wire barriers.

As of this week, the military had installed about 105 miles of wire barriers along the border, and plans to put in another 140 miles of concertina wire. The bulk of that will be in California and Arizona, in locations between ports of entry that are identified by U.S. Customs and Border Protection as vulnerable.

Many of the troops who have been serving on the border mission are going home. As of Monday, there were a bit more than 2,000 active-duty forces there. That number is expected to go up to more than 4,300.

Again. Go to the source: Border Patrol agents on the front line. You can arm-chair-quarterback all you want but those are the people trying to hold off those who choose to enter the U.S. illegally (for whatever reason).
The Border Patrol needs help. They support our Commander-in-Chief.
It's sickening that Americans would rather see our country destroyed than to support our president.
