U. S. President Trump tweeted the same day that the United States will not accept illegal immigrants, trying to enter the United States of Americas practice is an invasion of the United States, our troops waiting for you!
Analysts believe the Trump administrations high-profile troop surge is still a matter of immigration cards as the one-week countdown to the U.S. mid-term elections takes place, hoping to stir up voters with a tough stance. But it will not fundamentally solve the problem of immigration in Central America, but will also cause panic among the border population and strain relations around it.
Is it deterrent but frighten?
At a Pentagon news conference, General Terrence OShonesi, commander of the U.S. Northern Command and air force general, said the main troops were sent to Texas, California and Arizona, and 800 troops had left for Texas that day, and the mission would last at least until December 15.
According to reports, according to the law, these soldiers will not directly participate in border law enforcement, but take on the construction of tents, roadblocks and other auxiliary roles and provide transport, medical support, some of which will also be equipped with weapons to assist border patrols.
Earlier, the U.S. government had mobilized about 2,100 National Guard personnel to help border law enforcement officers deal with illegal immigration across the border.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection Director Kevin McCallinam said the surge was a deterrent, and the U.S. had to keep a large number of Central American immigrants expected to arrive at the U.S. -Mexican border in the next few weeks out of the border.
He said illegal immigrants would be arrested and repatriated after legal proceedings had been completed, and if anyone wished to apply for asylum at the port, they should seek the asylum of the Mexican government, not the United States. If a person wishes to apply for reunification with relatives and friends of the United States, he shall return to his country and apply for admission to the United States through the United States Embassy and Consulate. But he was also worried that the customs and Border Protection Bureau would be in short supply.

The dispatch of troops was immediately criticized in the United States. Shaw Drake, of the Border Rights Center of the Civil Rights Union, argues that it is not necessary to hurt people and money, but only to make Americans in the border areas more alarmed.
The immigration card is good enough to fight.
Analysts say the shortest distance between the Central American immigrant force and the US-Mexico border is 1,600 kilometers, but its route is uncertain, organizers have not clearly planned, but also depends on the arrangements of the Mexican government and public opinion, a number of factors affect its arrival time at the US-Mexico border, but certainly after the mid-term elections.
Analysts pointed out that the immigration card was one of the important factors in Trumps victory in the 2016 presidential election. Trumps government continued to use this strategy as the mid-term elections approached. On the one hand, it seized on the issue of immigration in Central America to highlight its tough stance, on the other hand, it continued to adopt the labelling strategy to attribute the problem. Blame the democratic camp for its weak stance on immigration policy in order to mobilize votes for the Republican camp.

Diao Daming, associate professor of international relations at Renmin University of China, said that the Trump administrations recent actions and actions were high-profile, threatening to cut off aid to some Central American countries, claiming that criminals and Middle Easterners were mixed in the immigrant ranks, and even at the moment spared no effort to mobilize troops to elevate the problem of illegal immigration to National security. Height, but this is not conducive to easing the situation, exacerbates the panic of border residents.
He argues that the Trump administrations attempt to politicize illegal immigration may be self-defeating and counter-productive, and may further deepen the fragmentation of American society.
What makes the melting pot cool down and salad plate taste bad?
The United States is the worlds largest immigrant country, melting pot and salad pan is its well-known common name. But in recent years, the word immigrant has always been associated with bipartisan rivalries and splitting public opinion in the United States. How can it be that there is no human factor behind it?
But it not only cooled the melting pot and made the salad dish taste bad, but also let the flag of America First leak out the bottom card of utilitarianism.
