The President has declared that he is “bringing out the military” as a means of securing the U.S. border from a wave of Central American migrants attempting to enter the United States.
While no details were given, it’s clearly expected that there will be a large confrontation when the thousands of migrants reach the border. While many calls for the caravan to disperse have been made, it has only grown as it travels toward it’s intended destination.
“I am bringing out the military for this National Emergency. They will be stopped!” Trump posted to Twitter.
However while there are National Guard troops adding additional support to the Homeland Security forces, a Pentagon spokesman said that the Defense Department has not yet been asked to add to the border security.
