Approximately 5,000 U.S. troops will be deploying to the southern border in response to the ‘migrant caravan’ pushing north through Mexico, according to Fox News.
The troops are reportedly support troops such as medical personnel and military police working in a “force protection” capacity, and may arrive as early as Tuesday.
In a Tweet, President Donald Trump said, “Many Gang Members and some very bad people are mixed into the Caravan heading to our Southern Border. Please go back, you will not be admitted into the United States unless you go through the legal process. This is an invasion of our Country and our Military is waiting for you!”
The caravan of Central American migrants is still roughly 1,000 miles away from the southern border.
