川普总统称将向美墨边界派遣军队 Trump Plans to Deploy Troops to Mexican Border

美国总统川普星期二对媒体表示,将把军队派往美国与墨西哥的边界,以阻止更多的非法移民进入美国。

川普总统在白宫东室记者会回答一名记者问题时说:“我认为这是我们必须做的一件事。”

川普总统以及国防部长马蒂斯、国土安全部长尼尔森和司法部长塞申斯等内阁成员星期二听取了简报,并研判川普政府能采取的相关对策,讨论的议题包括动用国民卫队以及向国会施压,紧急通过立法,堵住那些目前为贩运犯罪团伙、贩毒的恐怖分子以及走私团伙所利用的法律漏洞。

五角大楼对川普使用军队守卫边界的计划做出了回应。

一名五角大楼高级官员说:“我们仍在与白宫磋商。”他答应今后提供更多信息。

墨西哥外交部长比德加赖在推特上说,墨西哥政府已经要求美国进一步澄清川普总统的宣布。他还说,墨西哥将根据美国的澄清确定其立场,但是必将维护国家的主权和利益。

Troops are to be dispatched to America's border with Mexico to thwart further illegal immigration, U.S. President Donald Trump told reporters on Tuesday.

"I think that it's something that we have to do," the president said in response to a question from a reporter at the afternoon event in the White House East Room.

The president and several cabinet members, including Defense Secretary James Mattis, Homeland Security Secretary Kirsten Nielsen, and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, received a briefing Tuesday to examine his administration's strategy. The discussion included the mobilization of the National Guard and the need to pressure Congress to urgently pass legislation to close legal loopholes exploited by criminal trafficking, narco-terrorist and smuggling organizations.

The Pentagon responded to Trump's plan to use military to guard the borders.

"We are still consulting with the White House," a senior defense official said, promising more information.

Mexican Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray Caso said on Twitter his government has asked the United States to clarify Trump's announcement. He wrote Mexico will define its position based on that clarification, and always in defense of its sovereignty and national interests.
