Thousands of USA troops to be deployed to Mexico border

Thousands of USA troops to be deployed to Mexico border”

We have about 5,000, eight [thousand], we'll go up to anywhere between ten and 15,000 military personnel on top of Border Patrol, ICE, and everybody else at the border, ' Trump said.

Thousands of tired Central American migrants in a caravan that has advanced 250 miles (410 kilometers) into Mexico but remains far from the USA border hope they won't have to walk anymore, at least for a while.

As 700 Salvadoran migrants started their 1,500-mile journey by foot from the capital of El Salvador to the U.S. border Wednesday, in Washington, DC, the White House was vowing to deploy thousands of troops to stop them and thousands of other migrants from entering the United States.

"It's a risky group of people", Trump said of the latest group of a few thousand migrants, who are still deep inside Mexico far from their goal.

Should the President decide to send the full 15,000 troops to the United States border, then that would be almost double the number of troops the U.S. has deployed in both Iraq and Syria combined to fight ISIS.

While taking questions from the press after a meeting with South Korea's national defense minister, Mattis rejected the accusation and said that the Department of Defense doesn't "do stunts".

"The Caravans are made up of some very tough fighters and people". "As we sit right now, we have three C-130s and a C-17 that is ready to deploy with [Customs and Border Protection] personnel wherever they need to be".

Trump has consistently exaggerated the size of the caravan and the threat it plays to the United States.

Pelosi explained that the migrant caravan - consisting of several thousand asylum seekers from Central America consists mainly of families, including small children - are fleeing some of the world's poorest and most violent countries.

But the coming caravan provides a good opportunity for Trump anyway, he adds, because it's revealing that Democrats really do support open borders and illegal immigration.

According to Pentagon data, a deployment of 15,000 service members would be rivaled only by USA troop deployments to Japan, Germany, and South Korea. The caravan of an estimated 4,000 people is still almost 1,000 miles (1,600 kilometres) from the border.

Not everyone is pleased the militias plan to deploy to the border ahead of the caravans, though. We will NOT let these Caravans, which are also made up of some very bad thugs and gang members, into the U.S. Our Border is sacred, must come in legally.

The administration has been discussing various options to address the caravans for days and it was possible that things could change before Trump's 4:15 p.m. remarks "on the illegal immigration crisis" before he departs the White House for a campaign rally in Missouri.

O'Shaughnessy did not have a cost estimate on Tuesday. Thousands have already dropped out, applying for refugee status in Mexico or taking the Mexican government up on free bus rides back home, and the group is likely to dwindle even more during the arduous journey ahead.
