President Trump’s U.S. military deployment at the southern border has been authorized to use lethal force in response to civil disturbances at ports of entry, according to Pentagon documents obtained exclusively by The Young Turks.
The documents, marked For Official Use Only (“FOUO”), reveal that during civil disturbance operations, certain military personnel have been granted “lethal capability” to protect soldiers in riot control formation at ports of entry. Military personnel are also permitted, the documents show, to use “deadly force” to protect other personnel engaged in border security operations and even to protect property.”
