On Tuesday President Trump tweeted he will build a ‘human wall’ if necessary meaning he has and will send more U.S. troops on the Southern border to secure the border if a deal does not come through from both parties.
Tremendous numbers of people are coming up through Mexico in the hopes of flooding our Southern Border. We have sent additional military. We will build a Human Wall if necessary. If we had a real Wall, this would be a non-event!

The Pentagon announced on Sunday that nearly 4,000 additional U.S. troops would be deployed to the Southern border to assist Customs and Border Protection.
The Defense Department said in a statement that 3,750 troops would assist immigration officers for 90 days, placing razor wire along the border.
The deployment pushes the amount in the region to roughly 4,350 U.S. troops.
In order to avoid another shutdown, the continuing resolution expires on Feb. 15. An emergency declaration would likely lead to legal challenges.
Trump is scheduled to give the State of the Union address on Tuesday at the U.S. Capitol at 9 p.m 6Pm Pacific LIVE on Golden State Times
