BREAKING: Pentagon Sending Hundreds of U.S. Troops to the Border Ahead of ‘Caravan’ Invasion Force

The Pentagon is reportedly preparing to send hundreds of U.S. troops to the southern border to stop the “migrant caravan” of thousands of illegal aliens who are marching through Mexico on the way to crash across our border.

The Army force will supplement the National Guard soldiers and Homeland Security teams already on the border.

A Pentagon official said that approximately 800 soldiers will be sent to the border, according to Fox News.

It’s not immediately clear which units are being tasked with the mission as details are still being finalized.

Defense Secretary James Mattis could sign the deployment orders as soon as today.

There are currently 2,100 National Guard troops on the southern border assisting Homeland Security.

President Trump tweeted Thursday morning that “I am bringing out the military for this National Emergency. They will be stopped!”

The invading “caravan” is currently days away from our southern borders, but the number of these criminals is growing.

Reports on the caravan claim there are as many as 7,000 in the army of illegals. Other reports put that number as high as 14,000.

Most of the media want to portray the invading caravan as “refugees,” but even those actually in the invasion force admit that it is filled with criminals trying to sneak into the U.S.A.

One migrant in the caravan recently told the media, “Criminals are everywhere. It’s criminals in here. It is. But it is not that many. It is good people here trying to get through Mexico and then get to the United States. It doesn’t mean that everybody is a criminal.”

Another report found that up to 80 percent of the caravan is filled with young men under 35 years of age.
