DAVID WARD: The military is going to be a tremendous asset at the ports of entry to prevent the people from coming across the ports of entry. However, what we need to look at is what happens between the ports of entry and what the border patrol is going to have to face. We have three tenants of problems here, we have national security, public safety and public health issues with these caravans coming to the United States. Now in the national security realm, we've got all sorts of people, not only Central America but they're coming in from Africa, from the Middle East and other places in this caravan. It has already been documented, it has already been noted by our intel people that are down there.
Then public safety we have already had people interviewed in this caravan that have already been deported from the United States for crimes such as attempted homicide. Now these are prior deports that are coming in. And they will not come through the port of entry, they're going to come between the ports of entry where it's the path of least resistance. Then public health, we have these individuals coming from all over the world that have some of the most extreme medical care in the world. And they're coming in with diseases such as small pox and leprosy and TB that are going to infect our people in the United States.
