President Donald Trump has signed an order directing the National Guard to deploy to the U.S.-Mexico border, claiming the situation at the border has now reached a “point of crisis.” Trump’s order comes as border crossings by undocumented immigrants are at their lowest levels since 1971. Trump becomes at least the third president in a row to send the National Guard to the border. Meanwhile, The Wall Street Journal reports the Trump administration is requesting that the U.S. military build walls for at least one military base along the U.S.-Mexico border. We will have more on Trump’s border militarization plans after headlines.
