Trump Threatens “Human Wall” On Southern Border

USA Today reports:

Hours before he is set to deliver a State of the Union address that aides have said will strike a note of bipartisanship, President Donald Trump floated the idea of a “human wall” on the southwest border if Democrats reject his demands border security funding.

Trump has ordered about 2,350 active-duty troops and an additional 2,200 National Guardsmen to the border. Earlier this month, the Pentagon announced it would send a fresh deployment of troops at the request of the Department of Homeland Security. Those deployments will extend through September.
