Pentagon: 5000 Troops Will Be Deployed To U.S.-Mexico Border

Pentagon: 5000 Troops Will Be Deployed To U.S.-Mexico Border

The massive chain of migrants slowly making its way towards the USA southern border, which is still some 1,000 miles north, is now demanding that the Mexican government provide transportation for its estimated 4,000 participants - demands issued amid reports of outbreaks of violence as more groups have forced their way through Mexico's southern border.

Good news is, the "caravan" is still 1,000 miles away from the nearest crossing at McAllen, Texas, AP reported, and the trek "could be twice as long if the group of some 4,000 migrants heads for the Tijuana-San Diego frontier, as another caravan did earlier this year".

Added to the 2,000 troops already at the border, Mr Trump's announcement means the number of U.S. soldiers on the southern border will roughly be the same as those serving in Syria and Iraq combined. O'Shaughnessy, commander of U.S. Northern Command.

He has drawn attention to a caravan of migrants that is trekking through Mexico toward the United States as he seeks to fire up support for his Republican party.

A group of migrants from the caravan tried to make their way into Mexico using sticks, rocks and Molotov cocktails, according to authorities.

26, that migrants wishing to obtain temporary identification documents, jobs, and/or education for their children could do so by registering for asylum in southern Mexico. However, previous administrations, including Trump's, have utilized National Guard troops, not active duty forces for border security.

The migrants are walking towards the USA despite threats from President Donald Trump to employ the military to prevent them from entering.

Mail-bomb suspect arrested in Florida
The records show eight arrests, including on suspicion of grand theft, battery, fraud, drug possession and probation violations. Authorities are seen in Plantation, Florida taking a man into custody in connection to the mailed package bombs.

It was not clear whether the man was injured during clashes with Guatemalan police in Tecun Uman or with Mexican police when the migrants were crossing the Rodolfo Robles bridge connecting the two countries. "You will not be allowed to enter the U.S". They said asylum in the United States is their primary goal, but some expressed openness to applying for protected status in Mexico if that doesn't work out. One of the migrants died from the confrontation. Officials said on October 24, that approximately 1,743 migrants have sought asylum in Mexico while 116 people agreed to be deported. "'Our destiny is to get to the border, ' she said".

Mr Trump has described migrant groups moving through Latin America and aiming to get into the USA as an "invasion", and the military deployment is far larger than was expected a week ago.

Pueblo Sin Fronteras, who helped organize the caravan and has been deeply involved with its continuation, has said it hopes to hold meetings in Mexico City with federal lawmakers and authorities as well as representatives of the incoming government to discuss migrants' rights and the caravan's future.

Shaughnessy said the plan is to deploy the additional troops first to Texas and then to Arizona and California in support of U.S. Customs and Border Patrol.

"Please go back", he urged them, "you will not be admitted into the United States unless you go through the legal process".

"Many Gang Members and some very bad people are mixed into the Caravan heading to our Southern Border", Trump tweeted.

On Sunday, Mattis told reporters that some construction materials were already being moved to the border, including barriers. USA officials have told Reuters the support mission would be coordinated by the US military's Northern Command.
