9/11 as we know that resulted in the death of deaths of roughly 3,000 Americans in New York, Pennsylvania and excuse me – Virginia in the Washington, D.C. Area. The net effect for 3,000 lives was to invade Iraq and Afghanistan at the cost of trillions of dollars and many thousands of lost lives by military personnel and civilian support personnel.
In contrast, illegal aliens cost roughly 2,000 homicides on American soil per year at least over 2,000 illegal aliens were apprehended by Federal law enforcement officers in fiscal year 2018 for homicides.
And as was mentioned earlier that the Congresswoman Hartzler and Congressman Scott, drug overdoses cost roughly 70,000 American lives per year. And the evidence is overwhelming that a substantial portion of the drugs, those poisons that cause the loss caused the loss of American lives come across our southern border illegally.
In terms of lost American lives then, our poor southern border combined with the homicides of illegal aliens far exceeds the loss of lives caused by 9/11.
With that as a backdrop, I want to direct your attention to (10) United States code 284, which authorizes President Trump to deploy the military to southern border to build fences and do a lot of other things and for clarity if you look it up in the dictionary word fence includes the word of barrier and the word barrier includes walls made of a variety of different materials.
So that having been said, it seems to me that (10) U.S. Code 284 can be used by the President of the United States to direct the military to build a wall.
As of today, you mentioned military forces along the southern border. Have any of them been deployed pursuant to (10) U.S. C. 284?
[Hon. Rood:] Source: LYBIO.net
Congressman, I don’t believe any of the forces have been deployed pursuant to (10) U.S. C. 284. You are correct however the use of authority would authorize the Secretary of Defense to erect barriers, roads, fencing and those types of materials to disrupt drug smuggling.
Does(10) U.S. – excuse me (10) U.S. C. 284 as you understand that require the declaration of the national emergency before it is implemented?
[Hon. Rood:] Source: LYBIO.net
It does not.
Has President Trump to your knowledge ever used (10) U.S. C. 284 to direct the military to build the wall that is necessary for border security?
No, not to my knowledge, Congressman.
If President Trump were direct the Pentagon the United States Military pursuant to (10) U.S. C. 284 to build such barriers to secure our southern border from drug trafficking and international crime cartels, would the United States military obey that order?
If we judge it to be a lawful order, yes sir, and I assume it would be.
Thank you and I appreciate your responses, and Mr. Chairman I yeild back the remainder of my time.
