ABC Reports: The Department of Homeland Security is asking the Pentagon for additional manpower and equipment to help secure the southern border, U.S. defense and Homeland Security officials tell ABC News.
The defense official said the Department of Homeland Security Wednesday will request about 700 additional National Guardsmen plus helicopters and other equipment. Defense Secretary James Mattis is expected to review the request and respond to DHS on Thursday.
The goal is to have it finalized in the coming days, according to a DHS official.
Thursday, Populist Wire, was the first to complain about Getty’s fake photo and filed two complaints against RAICES with the FTC & The Texas Attorney General’s Office.
“20 Million dollars in fraud is a lot of money,” said Senior editor of Populist Wire.
Social Media was on fire last week with the photo of what looked like a child who was separated from her parents on the Southern Border of the United States. The photo was used as Democrat propaganda against President Donald J. Trump’s policy of Law and Order.
According to CBS:
“A Getty photographer has shared the story behind a viral image of an asylum seeker at the U.S.-Mexico border. John Moore said a Honduran woman and her 2-year-old daughter were taken into custody after crossing the Rio Grande from Mexico. He said they were expected to be transported to a U.S. Customs and Border Protection processing center.
“As a father myself, it was very difficult for me to see these families detained, knowing that they would soon be split up,” Moore told Getty’s FOTO of his recent ride-along with the Border Patrol. “I could see on their faces that they had no idea what was about to happen.”

Democrats are pushing for open borders and lawlessness in the Southern Border regions, and are hopeful for new immigrant voters for the 2018 elections.
The photo and propaganda campaign, meant to cause damage to Trump and his supporters was a fake. Not only a fake, but a fake that has raised over 20,000,000 dollars for the Democrats to use to fight Trump and his agenda.
Populist Wire has just filed a FTC violation against RAICES. They have committed fraud by misrepresenting this photo of a child who has NOT been separated. This is illegal.
Tuesday, the White House, under President Donald J. Trump released the following statement on The Crisis At The Border By The Numbers and following video footage.

Monday, after a week of fighting President Donald J. Trumps’s economic prosperity for the common people, the Democrat party exposed their plan for Blue Wave victories in the 2018 midterms: blame Republicans for Democrat policies on the Mexican Border.
“Outrage grows over US policy at the border,” reported CNN.
SHIFTING BLAME FROM YEARS LONG TIME POLICY TO TRUMP:
As everyone who has looked at this agrees, this was done by the president, not Democrats. He can fix it tomorrow if he wants to, and if he doesn’t want to, he should own up to the fact that he’s doing it. https://t.co/PC5UUIUyFj
A. The Ongoing UAC Crisis and Human Trafficking Since 2014, the United States has experienced a large increase of unaccompanied alien children from Central America at the southern border. The influx shows no sign of abating in FY2016: Customs and Border Protection (CBP) apprehended 10,588 UACs from October 1, 2015 through November 30, 2015, more than double the number of UACs apprehended during the same period one year ago.
The border surge has also produced a shift in the origin of UACs. Prior to FY2014, most UACs entering the U.S. came from Mexico.16 But in each year since, the majority of UACs apprehended by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) have come from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras.
The causes of the surge of UACs are disputed, but all stakeholders, including HHS, agree that one reason UACs come to this country is that they are “brought into the United States by human trafficking rings.”
According to the State Department’s 2015 Trafficking in Persons Report, “[t]he United States is a source, transit, and destination country for men, women, transgender individuals, and children—both U.S. citizens and foreign nationals—subjected to sex trafficking and forced labor.”
Human trafficking involves transporting or harboring human beings, often for financial gain, through the use of fraud, force, or coercion.
There is evidence that criminal organizations—including Mexican cartels and other transnational gangs—are engaged in both the smuggling and trafficking of children and other victims on the border. In 2014, the Texas Department of Public Safety, in collaboration with other law enforcement and homeland security agencies produced a State Intelligence Estimate finding that:
[m]any illegal aliens who are transported by alien smuggling operations into and through Texas are vulnerable to or become victims of trafficking or other crimes, including kidnapping, extortion, assault, sexual assault, forced prostitution and forced labor.
Surely McCaskill knows the definition of “unaccompanied” :
The Homeland Security Act 2002, passed by the Dem Majority Senate on Nov 19, 2002. This law contains the language that tells DHS how to deal with the kids. Detained parents can't care for their kids, so their kids are "unaccompanied".@SenSchumer vote~YEShttps://t.co/GGMg6V9XHkpic.twitter.com/jqGnAmIkkV
Hi Claire, I am working on an article for Populist Wire and I wonder if you could give me a statement about this report that YOU were a part of, about the conditions at the border from 2014: https://t.co/xaeDVaHAym
What are the CBP detention conditions being challenged in Doe v. Johnson?
“The Tucson Sector is the second largest CBP sector on the border; more than 63,000 people were apprehended there in fiscal year 2015.Many of these people are held in what are supposed to be short-term detention facilities operated by CBP, with cells designed for temporary use of no longer than 12 hours. Despite this, many people are subjected to long periods of detention—often for 24 to more than 72 hours—and dehumanizing conditions.”
CHILDREN ARE THE POLITICAL FOOTBALL IN DEMOCRAT SCHEME:
Research from 2011, 6 month investigation supported this article, Report: Obama Administration Handed Child Migrants Over to Human Traffickers
“The United States government placed an unknown number of Central American migrant children into the custody of human traffickers after neglecting to run the most basic checks on these so-called “caregivers,” according to a Senate report released onThursday.
As detention centers became incapable of housing the massive influx of migrants, the Department of Health and Human Services started placing children into the care of sponsors who would oversee the minors until their bids for refugee status could be reviewed. But in many cases, officials failed to confirm whether the adults volunteering for this task were actually relatives or good Samaritans — and not unscrupulous egg farmers or child molesters.”
Many people who created the conditions at the border, or who had the authority to change conditions at the border when they were in power, have curiously only very recently turned to the Media to speak about the problems at the Southern Border, to cast doubt and blame on their political opponents. But they are not concerned about the children who ending up trafficked. No concern for those cruel and inhumane conditions.

DON’T BRING YOUR KIDS OR SEND YOUR KIDS HERE ILLEGALLY:
“We are seeing an increase of people who disregard our laws. People are taking advantage of our insecure border. Border security at it’s heart is a matter of Law and Order. Law Enforcement sees the ugly business of Human Trafficing. Sherriffs shared a 14-year-old boy recruited by the drug cartel, was brutally attacked. These are not humanitarians. We need to address complex ideas together. Law enforcement has told us that past Presidents have failed to act.
We need Congress to fund the Border Wall System. We need to enforce the laws, close loopholes. Illegal actions have consequences, no more lawlessness, no more get out of jail cards.
Every day in our communities, if you commit a crime, you go to jail regardless if you have children. We are not doing things that intentional cruel. We are enforcing laws on the book. We need Congress to address these laws.
The previous administration let adults go if they had children. We enforce the laws. Don’t believe the press. The children are well cared for, with high standards. Do not believe the press. We will not apologize for doing it’s job,” said DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.
Trump is resolute to stop the violence, trafficking and abuse- and that is why Americans voted for him.
From his Contract with American voter, Trump said he would, “End Illegal Immigration Act Fully-funds the construction of a wall on our southern border with the full understanding that the country of Mexico will be reimbursing the United States for the full cost of such wall; establishes a two-year mandatory minimum federal prison sentence for illegally re-entering the U.S. after a previous deportation, and a five-year mandatory minimum federal prison sentence for illegally re-entering for those with felony convictions, multiple misdemeanor convictions or two or more prior deportations; also reforms visa rules to enhance penalties for overstaying and to ensure open jobs are offered to American workers first.”
TIME FOR DEMOCRATS TO GO TO THE TABLE
Adults and Children are held for different periods of time. Democrats need to do the Math, even if they want to pretend to be surprised on the conditions, the massive numbers, and the law enforcement delimas.
Children are being used by some of the worst criminals on earth as a means to enter our country. Has anyone been looking at the Crime taking place south of the border. It is historic, with some countries the most dangerous places in the world. Not going to happen in the U.S.
