Here’s Today’s Poll Question…
Behind The Poll
During his presidency, Donald Trump considered the possibility of deploying U.S. troops to secure our southern border. Policy experts debated how this could be done. According to Heritage.org:
The Posse Comitatus Act prohibits the Army and Air Force from being used to enforce the laws of the U.S. with only select exceptions. Additional statues and Department of Defense policy directives have further applied Posse Comitatus to the Navy and Marine Corps. The only branch of the military with broad law enforcement authority is the Coast Guard.
Ultimately, the Coast Guard was not deployed, but Trump continued to build the wall until he left office and Biden took over.
