The Use of United States Military Police in Migrant/Refugee Relief Operations.
ARMY WAR COLL CARLISLE BARRACKS PA
Pagination or Media Count:
The US military has a long historical involvement with migrant refugee relief operations, both at home and abroad. These missions are resource intensive, seldom quickly resolved, and often as not, have limited success at meeting their stated objectives. While the military has often been used in the past, it is not the preferred national asset for these type operations. If the military is to continue performing these type missions in order to meet national security objectives, it is absolutely imperative we do so in a manner that is suitable, feasible, and acceptable. This paper will examine the militarys involvement in migrantrefugee relief operations from a historical perspective and as they exist today. Alternatives to military responses will be reviewed, focusing on ways to bring the other elements of nation power to bear in future operations.
