    When Arkansas governor Orval Faubus attempted to prevent the integration of a segregated school in his state then President Dwight David Eisenhower ordered in the 101st Airborne division.
    Since the American Civil war the U.S. Army has been allowed to engage in selected duties in the United States. But not law enforcement. In particular it's governed by the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 which was the result of a compromise after the Disputed election of 1876. That compromise was as the Republican candidate lost the popular vote. However then as now the popular vote is not the actual method of Presidential election the Electoral collage comes into play. With a number of states holding back there electoral votes it was Tilden 184 to Hayes 165 With 20 untallied electoral votes. A seal deal was struck which is how President Hayes came to office.
    As part of the deal federal troops were withdrawn from southern states ending reconstruction. This combined with a majority Democrat Congress in 1878 allowed the southern states to push restrictions on deployment of Federal Army troops in side the state's. The state's of course control there National guard. But you see there is always a loop hole. For Ike it was the Enforcement acts of 1870.
    Another case was in 1992 When the Insurrection act was used to order the 7th infantry division to deply to put down riots in LA.
    It's hard to say on this one.
    I side with the preference of use of national guard troops for this, because of the law. And that really doesn't actually exclude support and assistance by active federal troops. The DOD and active military support local and other federal agencies with logistics, intelligence and more all the time.

    I still recall discussions at Fox News (if to deploy to the border) from the time I had lived in the US, which was in 2001 and 02;

    at first glance it sounded like an outrage to have "permeable" borders with Terrorists potentially coming,

    but from what I figured, there wouldn't have been enough Illegals to for example pick up apples for less-than-minimal wage, so

    LOL no big tasty apple for a quarter,

    and of course enough Lobbyists to keep this going

    (not sure if it's changed since then)

    Not only that Jura but this.....

    U.S. EP-3 Intercepted in the Black Sea by Russian Su-27

    Release Date: 11/5/2018 11:15:00 AM

    From U.S. Naval Forces Europe-Africa/U.S. 6th Fleet Public Affairs

    BLACK SEA (NNS) -- On Nov. 5, 2018, a U.S. EP-3 Aries aircraft flying in international airspace over the Black Sea was intercepted by a Russian SU-27. This interaction was determined to be unsafe due to the SU-27 conducting a high speed pass directly in front of the mission aircraft, putting at risk the pilots and crew. The intercepting SU-27 made an additional pass, closing with the EP-3 and applying its afterburner while conducting a banking turn away. The crew of the EP-3 reported turbulence following the first interaction, and vibrations from the second. The duration of the intercept was approximately 25 minutes.

    While the Russian military is within its right to exercise within international airspace, this interaction was irresponsible. We expect them to behave within international standards set to ensure safety and to prevent incidents, including the 1972 Agreement for the Prevention of Incidents On and Over the High Seas (INCSEA). Unsafe actions‎ increase the risk of miscalculation and potential for midair collisions.

    The U.S. aircraft was operating in accordance with international law and did not provoke this Russian activity.
