It’s War: President Trump Wants ‘battlefield commander’ On Border To Stop ILLEGALS

President Trump’s moves at the Department of Homeland Security this week amount to an all-out declaration of war on illegal immigration, one that will rewrite rules of engagement and require his top aides run the battle from the border, according to officials.
A senior aide said that the president wants a “battlefield commander” who will take the fight to the border and not get stalled or sidelined by agency and congressional politics.
“We have to have somebody in the battlefield on a day-to-day basis, in like a forward theater, that’s actually making decisions in real time to meet deadlines and meet targets,” said the official. It is "very difficult to direct that ... from a distance,” said the official.
While the media has been focused on the West Wing’s “purge” at Homeland Security and the possibility that the president will restore a program to separate illegal immigrant children from parents suspected of crimes, the administration has already shifted to reducing the numbers of illegal immigrants crossing the border and entering on asylum claims.
One official said the goal is a simple. “We need to stop illegal immigration, bring those numbers down.”
Everybody is now acknowledging that, right from the time I announced my run for President, I was 100% correct on the Border. Remember the heat I took? Democrats should now get rid of the loopholes. The Border is being fixed. Mexico will not let people through!

Trump, said insiders, has been frustrated with Homeland Security officials who he feels didn’t get the message of his 2016 presidential campaign that opened with a promise to fight illegal immigration.
