Nearly 4,000 additional U.S. troops will be deployed to the southern border to assist Customs and Border Protection, the Pentagon announced Sunday.

CNN reported that 3,750 troops will head to the border for 90 days to aid in placing razor wire along the border, as well as with mobile surveillance operations. The deployment will bring the number of active-duty forces in the area to roughly 4,350.

Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan said last week that the department would send "several thousand" additional troops to the border, but declined to be more specific.

The Hill has reached out to the Pentagon for comment.

Are these troops allowed to shoot? Or are they to be deployed feeding and diapering the offspring of the illegal criminal invaders like the Border Patrol? They should get NOTHING when they reach the border except a few shots fired at them. The minute you let them into the States for “asylum hearings”, they will disappear and thereby get what they want: getting on the Uncle Sugar gravy train.

Like President Trump says, he has more flexibility with the temporary help than with the confirmed Cabinet members.

They’re there so the American people think the government is ‘doing something’ to stop illegal immigration. The reality is, just like before, they’re going to speed up and make it an orderly process for the BP to process the illegals in one by one.
Yeah, I’m cynical....and sick of the complete BS.

Shove through a whole ton of bas-ass stuff while they throw the football around.

Nice cover.

Construction battalions and riding point to counter any fire from cartel “soldiers” from the other side. The “border crashers” being swept on ahead of the MS-13 members seeking to slip in while the Border Patrol is thus occupied will come face to face with a new reality.

“Go ahead, boy, make my day.”

Dirty Harry, now that we need you, where are you?

Ooooo, you might separate FAMILIES with the slice and dice routine. Families who CHOSE to bring kids over a perilous journey with the hopes of making it onto the gravy train. Disgusting, and doesn't evoke one iota of pity in me.

Build new military bases along the border. One in each border state with a wall that runs the whole length of the state’s border.
