President Trump has activate nearly 4,000 troops to help with the southern border and intercept multiple large carvans.


WASHINGTON, D.C. (KETK) – The Pentagon announced on Sunday that 3,750 active-duty troops will be headed to the U.S.-Mexico border, just hours before Super Bowl LIII was set to kick off. They will be sent for 90 days.

“Additional units are being deployed for 90 days, and we will continue to evaluate the force composition required to meet the mission to protect and secure the southern border,” the Pentagon said.

Earlier in the week, Acting Defense Secretary Pat Shanahan that a next phase of a military mission on the border was upcoming.

Shanahan said that the troops would mostly be installing additional wire barriers and a new system of mobile surveillance technology.

Moments ago, President Trump warned of caravans marching towards our southern border.

“With Caravans marching through Mexico and toward our Country, Republicans must be prepared to do whatever is necessary for STRONG Border Security. Dems do nothing. If there is no Wall, there is no Security. Human Trafficking, Drugs and Criminals of all dimensions – KEEP OUT!” Trump tweeted.
