Today, on President Obama’s last full day as President of the United States, some Americans are in a state of mourning. There’s a huge sense of loss for many Obama fans who are now staring down the next four years under a Trump administration. During his farewell address in Chicago on Jan. 10, Obama was met with enthusiastic chants from the crowd who called for “Four more years! Four more years!” “I can’t do that,” Obama said.

Former President George W. Bush sent 6,000 National Guard troops to the southern border in 2006 to assist the Border Patrol while more border agents were hired and … [Read more...] about White House: Trump border proposal would mobilize National Guard
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump’s strategy for the U.S.-Mexico border includes mobilizing the National Guard, the White House said on Tuesday, after Trump had earlier spoken publicly to reporters about “guarding our border with the military” to stop illegal immigrants. U.S. President Donald Trump arrives for the Easter service at Bethesda-by-the-Sea Episcopal Church in Palm Beach, Florida, U.S., April 1, 2018. REUTERS/Yuri Gripas The White House statement was released after Trump met with Defense Secretary James Mattis, Attorney General Jeff Sessions and other officials on border issues. It gave no details on whether or when Trump’s strategy might be implemented. The National Guard, part of the U.S. military’s reserve forces, has been used in recent years for surveillance and intelligence on the border, but not direct law enforcement.
