REPORT: Hundreds Of US Troops Headed To Southern Border To Deal With Migrant Caravan

The army of people from central America currently marching towards our southern border is going to be met by a heavy presence of the US military. The Trump administration is taking this very seriously, as they should.

FOX News reports:

Hundreds of US troops heading to the border to deal with migrant caravan, official says

Hundreds of U.S. troops are set to make their way to the southern border to help Homeland Security and the National Guard as a caravan with thousands of migrants pushes north with the goal of crossing into America, a U.S. official confirmed to Fox News on Thursday.

The official said roughly 800 soldiers will be sent to the area to offer “logistical support,” including providing tents and vehicles.

It’s not immediately clear which units are being tasked with the mission as details are still being finalized.

Defense Secretary James Mattis could sign the deployment orders as soon as today.

There are currently 2,100 National Guard troops on the southern border assisting Homeland Security.

President Trump tweeted Thursday morning that “I am bringing out the military for this National Emergency. They will be stopped!”

The migrant caravan as of Thursday is still in southern Mexico, more than 1,000 miles away from the nearest entry point into the U.S. Its size is estimated to be around 7,000, but many of those currently walking are suffering from exhaustion, dehydration and heat stroke.

Isn’t it fascinating how all of this is happening right before the midterms? Does anyone believe that’s a coincidence?
