Troops to the Border?

By Bill O'Neil

Another call is raised for sending National Guard troops to the border--as the crisis surrounding the continuing flow of undocumented children in to Texas goes on.  

Among the lawmakers pressing the White House to take more decisive action is House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Mike McCaul. 

"I personally believe this administration's policies have contributed to the problem--and have encouraged more people to come" said McCaul during a Tuesday hearing on Capitol Hill--at which he told Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson the Obama Administration must be clear with those who are thinking about making the trip, telling them they will not be allowed to stay.  

"Because if we don't provide that deterrence, this probblem won't stop" McCaul told Johnson, who replied " I agree--we need to stem the tide."
