President Trump is sending thousands of more troops to the southern border.

The news comes as the caravan of Central American migrants continues to cause controversy.

According to The Hill:

“The U.S. military will send more than 5,200 active duty troops to the southern border with Mexico by the end of the week, the Defense Department announced Monday.

“By the end of this week will we deploy over 5,200 soldiers to the southwest border. That is just the start of this operation, we’ll continue to adjust the numbers and inform you of those,” U.S. Northern Command and North American Aerospace Defense Command head Gen. Terrence O’Shaughnessy told reporters.

The troops are in addition to the 2,092 National Guard troops deployed in April to the border as part of Operation Guardian Support.”
