President Joe Biden has ordered 1,500 U.S. troops to the southern border to protect against an anticipated tidal wave of illegal immigrants.
Title 42, the federal law that allows the government to expel illegals without a hearing because of a public health emergency, will expire next week. Former President Donald Trump invoked the law, citing the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to CNN, the troops will fill “critical capability gaps” faced by the Border Patrol and are intended to perform “administrative” functions, thus freeing up the Border Patrol to do its job more effectively. “They will not be doing any law enforcement work,” an unnamed U.S. official told CNN.

Of course, when Trump did this a few years ago, liberals believed it was the worst thing ever.
In 2018, Trump sent 5,900 troops to the border to beef up security in anticipation of a “caravan” of illegals coming up through Mexico.
At the time, for example, the left-wing ACLU accused Trump of “accelerating the militarization of the southwest border.” “Coupled with President Trump’s use of the border and immigration issues to drum up racial animosities among voters, the United States continues its slide towards a fully militarized border region that will further erode constitutional protections and human rights in our borderlands,” ACLU Advocacy Manager Cynthia Pompa said at the time.
Now, however, the media is covering for Biden.
In its report, for instance, CNN noted, “the US military has long provided support to the Department of Homeland Security on the border and a surge of personnel to the area is not unprecedented. Currently there are approximately 2,500 National Guard troops on the border.”

Politico, like CNN, also mentioned that former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama had likewise deployed troops, and blamed Congress for Biden’s move. “The Biden administration’s move continues the trend of presidents using troops to fill in for the personnel-strapped Border Patrol as Congress hasn’t fully funded the agency to do its work,” Politico added.
Still, the move comes as Biden also claims illegal immigration is down.
White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on Monday claimed that Biden’s catch-and-release program has reduced illegal immigration by “more than 90%.”
Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody urged the media to do what it normally will do in such situations.
“If any media outlet pushes this false narrative from KJP that illegal migration is down more than 90%, they are complicit in an outright fabrication and a scam on the American public,” Moody tweeted on Tuesday.
“@JoeBiden’s parole program is not just unlawful, it is a laundering scheme. The whole point is to move illegal immigrants into the program so they can sell the lie that illegal immigration is down. It is a scam.”
In December of 2022, Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody said that President Joe Biden has been “breaking down” America’s southern border from the moment he took office.
In an interview with Fox News, Moody, a Republican, denounced Biden for lax immigration policies that, in essence, have erased the U.S. southern border.

“From day one of Biden’s administration, he has started breaking down the border,” Moody said.
Moody added the federal border authorities have told her, under oath, that Biden has stripped them of the ability to detain immigrants while forcing them to release illegals into the heart of the country.
During her comments, Moody referred to a training video that she released, in which federal agents say they simply hand illegals a piece of paper and no other processing.
“They have purposefully dismantled from day one our immigration system, and now they want to blame Title 42’s rescission for what is about to happen,” said Moody.
“They can’t manage the border now. They’re not managing the border now. And the day of reckoning for the United States is upon us when Title 42 gets lifted.”
