US sends troops to border with Mexico

United States Department of Defense , The Pentagon is sending over 5,200 troops to the border with Mexico as thousands of central American migrants walk towards the US in a caravan.

Pentagon General, Terrence O’shaughnessy said Operation Faithful Patriot would focus on Texas, Arizona and California.

O’shaughnessy said the troops would be deployed by the end of the week with weapons, helicopters, airplanes, barriers and miles of razor wire to support border patrol agents.

President Donald Trump earlier said the invasion of migrants would find the US military waiting for them adding that tent cities would be built to house migrants seeking asylum in the US.
