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

National Guard Border

US President Donald Trump has ordered through the Pentagon the deployment of no less than 5,200 troops at the US-Mexico border over refugee and migrant influx. He claimed that the caravan at the Guatemala-Mexico border is employing "violent and dangerous" tactics. When this group tried to cross into Mexico through the river on Monday but were stopped again by Mexican federal police who insisted they register and show travel documents before entering the country.

Mr Trump is not the first president to send troops to the border with Mexico.

USA officials told Reuters last week the military will have not have an active law enforcement role, instead sending engineers, pilots and other support staff including some that may be able deal with crowd control on the US side of the border.

The caravan of migrants clash with the Guatemalan Police, in Tecun Uman, Guatemala.

The U.S. military is preparing to send as many as 5,000 active duty troops to the southwest border in coming days to meet a request from the Department of Homeland Security to augment resources in anticipation of the arrival of the caravan of migrants now in Mexico, according to multiple U.S. officials.

In an interview Monday, Trump said the USA would build "tent cities" for asylum seekers.

"We do it by helping to train and to help them professionalize their non-commissioned officer corps and to recognize that their legitimacy derives from the respect of the population, and so it's important that they be viewed as protectors and not as predators". "We'll continue to adjust the numbers and inform you of those, but please know that's in addition to the 2,092 [service members] that are employed from our National Guard". All of the active-duty troops are scheduled to be deployed by the end of the week, but some are already in the Rio Grande Valley.

He said the more than 5,200 troops now slated to go to Texas, Arizona and California were only the start of a larger deployment and that eventually troops would go to New Mexico as well.

The 23-year-old from Corinto, Honduras, was part of the first caravan, whose members set off Tuesday, walking and hitching rides on the highway through Mexico's narrow, windy southern isthmus.

"They're incentivized to try to cross our border by the gaps in our legal framework, and the expectation that they will be allowed to stay".

"Many Gang Members and some very bad people are mixed into the Caravan heading to our Southern Border", he wrote without supporting evidence. "This is an invasion of our Country and our Military is waiting for you!"

Military personnel are legally prohibited from engaging in immigration enforcement.

The US President said that those illegal immigrants who enter the United States and request for asylum will not be released as long as their cases will not be considered by the immigration court.

They will bring border "personnel exactly where they need to be, regardless of the conditions", he said.

The U.S. military still had no firm idea of what the operation would cost, he added.
