Roundup: Twitter Responds to Donald Trump Sending National Guard to Border

Advocates, reporters, experts, and members of Congress slammed the decision over Twitter, pointing out that border crossings are at an all-time low, that National Guard troops are not supposed to be deployed for domestic enforcement, and that other situations — for example, the ongoing hurricane recovery in Puerto Rico — would benefit from deployment more.
