Re: Stopping the invasion?

US Northern Command has a good synopsis of the Posse Comitatus Act.
Section 1385 of Title 18, United States Code (USC), states:

“Whoever, except in cases and under circumstances expressly authorized by the Constitution or Act of Congress, willfully uses any part of the Army or Air Force as a posse comitatus or otherwise to execute the laws shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than two years, or both.”

Re: Stopping the invasion?

What most folks don't know is that Texas, AZ, NM, and CA already have "troops on the border." Do an internet search for "joint counterdrug task force." I did not memorize which states have a Joint Counterdrug Task Force, but many others do.

The Posse Comitatus Act is a United States federal law (18 U.S.C. § 1385, original at 20 Stat. 152) signed on June 18, 1878 by President Rutherford B. Hayes. It seeks to prevent the use of military forces as police. JCTF personnel don't perform law enforcement duties, but rather serve in support roles, thus freeing sworn officers from admin or surveillance duties, allowing them to concentrate on law enforcement.
