So il Donald writes that 10,000 new ICE agents, 5000 Border Patrol agents and 500 Aircraft/Drone pilots will be hired.

Based on what DHS says there will be some lag time. From the time an application is received there are several steps. First, for ICE position generally at least a Bachelors Degree is needed. A Border Patrol Agent requires at least a High School diploma.

Second, security clearances average around three months.

ICE training runs at least 5 weeks.

Border Patrol training is 19 weeks. FLETC (in Brunswick Georgia) is already running close to capacity and has been for decades.

Then there is a probationary period.

A few other facts. Currently ICE employs about 20,000 people total so what is being called for is a 50% increase. Right now ICE does not have the supervisory staff needed to take that on in any reasonable time line.

Hiring a person is just the very beginning; you then need to equip them, train them, place them with experienced agents, evaluate their performance.

Oh, and there was no check attached to the Executive Order.

Feeling safer now?

So instead of starting a war in a foreign country to run up the debt like all good republican presidents do ...

... #Fake45 wants to start an internal war ...

at least all the money stays local? (or will the uniforms be made in China?)

oh, and he's bringing jobs home by having the war here.

Well, since the check is still not even in the mail, and it would likely take at least his first term to fill the positions it should not be a very exciting war.

And it would still do nothing to secure the borders.

And the crops still need picking.

And workers are still needed.

And lives will still be disrupted.

And ladders are still cheaper than walls.
