Pentagon To Send Additional 2,100 Troops To U.S.-Mexico Border

The Pentagon said on Wednesday the U.S. Government would send additional troops to the border with Mexico.

The new deployment of 1,000 Texas National Guardsmen and 1,100 active-duty troops is in support of Presiden Trump’s immigration crackdown.

The Pentagon approved the high-profile deployment of troops to the Mexico border in October, before the November congressional elections.
