Contributing sentiments towards policy:

64% : "DOD personnel have been supporting CBP at the border for almost two decades now," Jean-Pierre said.
62% : Gen. Pat Ryder, "until CBP can address these needs through contracted support.
51% : But the deployments have a catch: As a condition for Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin's previous approval of National Guard troops to support the border mission throughout fiscal year 2023, which ends this Oct. 1, DHS had to agree to work with the White House and Congress "to develop a plan and implement solutions to staffing and funding shortfalls to maintain border security and the safe, orderly, and humane processing of migrants that do not involve the continued use of DOD personnel and resources after FY2023," said Pentagon spokesman Air Force Lt. Col. Devin Robinson.
50% : The COVID-19 restrictions allowed U.S. officials to turn away tens of thousands of migrants crossing the southern border, but those restrictions will lift May 11, and border officials are bracing for an expected surge of migrants.
50% : Biden's actions follow similar moves by then-President Donald Trump, who deployed active duty troops to the border to assist border patrol personnel in processing large migrant caravans, on top of National Guard forces that were already working in that capacity.
45% : The troops "will not be performing law enforcement functions or interacting with immigrants, or migrants," Jean-Pierre said.
40% : Last week, administration officials announced they would work to swiftly screen migrants seeking asylum at the border, quickly deport those deemed as not being qualified, and penalize people who cross illegally into the U.S. or illegally through another country on their way to the U.S. border.
