With tens of thousands of unaccompanied minors crossing the border, House Speaker John Boehner called on President Obama to “immediately deploy the National Guard to our southern border” Friday.
In a firm letter to Obama, Boehner — who has blamed the Obama administration for causing the run on the border — enumerated the steps he would like to see taken to ensure the safety of the children and national security of the country.
“It is our duty and obligation to enforce the laws of our country while protecting the most vulnerable and ensuring they are healthy and well protected,” Boehner wrote.
“In that vein, your administration should immediately deploy the National Guard to our southern border,” he continued. “The National Guard is uniquely qualified to respond to such humanitarian crises. They are able to help deal with both the needs of these children and families as well as relieve the border patrol to focus on their primary duty of securing our border.”
Boehner joins other Republicans in his call for the deployment of the National Guard to the border.
