The top U.S. military commander for North America said to expect more American troops to deploy to the southern border.
"What I can confirm is there will be additional force over and above the 5,239 (already heading to the border), the magnitude of that difference I dont have an answer for you," Air Force Gen. Terrence J. O'Shaughnessy, head of U.S. Northern Command, told reporters Tuesday afternoon in an impromptu news conference in the Pentagon.
O'Shaughnessy did not have a cost estimate for the deployment of more than 5,200 troops to the southern border.
O'Shaughnessy said each service member deploying would fully understand the rules of the use of force. The general said training programs were being set up alongside Border Patrol personnel at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas.

Whatever it takes.
Stop the invasion.
Send ‘Puff the magic Dragon” while you’re at it!
Unless they’re there to be more than paper pushers, what’s the point?
They better be packing.
Someone posted an article earlier that stated the total number to deploy would likely be somewhere in excess of 10,000.
Puff has long given the stage to the Spectre/ Spooky AC-130s.
But I like your thinking.
Also, deploy cell phone jammers. They wont be able to get direction from their minders.
I see Kwayme has turned on POTUS now because of troops being sent to border. Says he has been tricked and no longer supports POTUS.
If the Mexican Federales have any pride left, they’ll lend a hand, especially against the second batch. If.
Well they’ve watched them barge through all attempts to co-operate with the authorities.... and get violent as they get closer.....so he gets what must be prepared for if they reach the US.
This is starting to sound like something other than a political GESTURE, something other than optics.
If anyone can do this..?
I bet it cost less than Afghanistan.
Some of these folks undermine troops anytime, anywhere. They don’t appreciate or understand the price of their freedom. God is bigger than whether or not this country goes third world. We need revival!
This hurts the Mexican economy two big ways. 1. A lot of people that are legal immigrants visit relatives and spend money; that number has gone down. 2. The Mexicans that get jobs here send money to Mexico. Central Americans will not send their money to Mexico.
Sheppie: “There is no invasion!”
It cannot possibly cost more than the precious lives and treasure it has cost us. Every American life is another reason to launch a scorched-earth demolition party against the countries that support the invasion against us.
Need special forces also; stop the buses:
What is the cost if nothing is done? That should be our concern right now. Doing nothing like we have done since Reagan bent over is NOT what we should do now. We need to secure the border once and for all. This is a country of laws and they should be enforced.
Time to take out the big _ick and beat it on the table to get their attention.
Only way to stop this invasion. That is what this is and the sooner people understand the better off we will be.
