Yesterday The Pentagon announced they are expected to increase the number of troops stationed at the U.S.-Mexico border to around 6,000 by the start of next month after our leader Trump ordered more troops.
Speaking on the condition of anonymity, a senior U.S. defense official said our leader Donald Trump planned to deploy around 1,000 additional personnel to the southern border with orders to lay down concertina wire and install detection systems along the border.
This same official told us military forces have already installed around 70 miles of concertina wire along the border and focused their efforts on reinforcing designated ports of entry, assisting Customs and Border Protection agents with transportation and providing medical support to migrants and asylum seekers.
The senior defense official said the mission at the southern border is constantly changing and they are adjusting.
“We are now transitioning to supporting different areas between the ports of entry,” they said. “We’re laying down another 140 miles of concertina wire as well as providing a ground-based detection and monitoring mission in support of CBP.”
