President Joe Biden has authorized the Secretaries of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to activate individual members and units of the Ready Reserve to ensure that the Department of Defense (DOD) can provide uninterrupted support to the DHS in the fight against international drug trafficking along the southwest border.

The new measure comes in response to the growing threat of drug trafficking and illegal immigration in the region, as smugglers continue to find ways to bypass the border patrols and move drugs and people into the United States.

The Ready Reserve is a group of individuals who are trained and ready to provide additional support to the DOD in times of need. By activating the reserve, the DOD will be able to sustain its support of the DHS along the southwest border.

The authorization will allow the Secretaries of Defense and the DHS to order individual members and units of the Ready Reserve to active duty, which means they will be required to report to duty and perform their assigned tasks. The order will remain in effect until revoked by the President.

The authorization has been welcomed by officials in the DHS, who have been struggling to combat the influx of illegal drugs and immigrants along the southwest border. With the additional support from the DOD, the DHS will be better equipped to track and intercept smugglers and prevent them from entering the country.

The new authorization is part of President Biden’s broader efforts to address the root causes of migration from Central America and improve border security. The President has also proposed a comprehensive immigration reform bill that aims to provide a path to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants living in the United States.

The authorization to activate the Ready Reserve will provide critical support to the DHS in the fight against drug trafficking and illegal immigration along the southwest border. With the new measures in place, officials hope to create a safer and more secure border for all Americans.
