Pentagon to send about 800 troops to US-Mexico border

800 more troops to be sent to Mexican border

The White House is considering a major executive action to stop a massive caravan of Central American migrants traveling north through Mexico from entering the USA, according to several reports on Thursday.

President Trump has vowed to "call up the U.S. Military and CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER" if Mexico is unable to stop a caravan of thousands of migrants from attempting to cross illegally into the United States.

"To those in the Caravan, turnaround, we are not letting people into the United States illegally".

He told them to return to their home countries and if they want, they can apply for citizenship status like millions of others are doing.

"We've come fleeing our country". We simply can not allow people to pour into the United States undetected, undocumented, unchecked and circumventing the line of people who are waiting patiently, diligently and lawfully to become immigrants in this country. The intent of the email sent by one of the Border Patrol Landowner Liaison's was to provide the landowners within that specific area of responsibility a point of contact in case they encounter media or any unauthorized individuals on their respective properties. Many in the group are women and children believed to be seeking refuge from violence and economic hardship.

Trump, in a tweet urged them to rather apply for US citizenship like others.

The soon-to-be-ex-Trump-staffer also appeared to use the event to rebuke her boss' recent rhetoric on political opposition. On the president's advice for Haley's speech: "He said if I get stuck for laughs, just brag about his accomplishments ".

Altogether the order would prevent hundreds in the caravan from entering the USA and asking for asylum, the newspaper said. But the longer-term implications could be more profound, potentially shutting down altogether an avenue - permitted under both USA and global law - that many people fleeing violence and persecution use to take refuge here.

The ones from Texas aren't armed and are helping in key support roles such as running motor pools so more Customs and Border Protection agents can work directly along the border, said Texas Army National Guardsmen spokesman Maj.

The US military is prohibited from carrying out civilian law enforcement on American soil unless specifically authorized by Congress.

Details of Mr. Trump's plan, including a web of complicated legal issues that will most likely prompt a swift challenge in federal courts, were still being finalized on Thursday, according to the people who described it, all of whom insisted on anonymity to discuss an action that is still under development. So far, only a little over 2,000 have been used. You're going to see a very secure border.

But Nielsen warned: "This caravan can not come to the United States".
