Fox News reports that the Commander of U.S. Northern Command, General Terrence O’Shaughnessy said that the current migrant caravan is violent, unlike previous similar caravans.
General Terrence O’Shaughnessy: “What we have seen is clearly an organization at a higher level than we have seen before. We’ve seen violence coming out of the caravan, and we have seen as they pass other international borders — we’ve seen them behave in a nature that we have not seen in the past.”
The top U.S. military commander for North America said to expect more American troops to deploy to the southern border.
“What I can confirm is there will be additional force over and above the 5,239 (already heading to the border), the magnitude of that difference I don’t have an answer for you,” Air Force Gen. Terrence J. O’Shaughnessy, head of U.S. Northern Command, told reporters Tuesday afternoon in an impromptu news conference in the Pentagon.
O’Shaughnessy did not have a cost estimate for the deployment of more than 5,200 troops to the southern border.
O’Shaughnessy said each service member deploying would “fully understand the rules of the use of force.” The general said “training programs” were being set up alongside Border Patrol personnel at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas.
Asked to comment on President Trump telling Fox News that “tent cities” would be set up for migrants, O’Shaughnessy said that mission would be left up to Homeland Security.
His forces would only be building tents for the Border Patrol, he said. More

Never in history has a group seeking asylum carried the flag of the country they are trying to escape from. This is orchestrated! That means INVASION, nothing else!
We have to get back to assimilation with the immigrants coming into our communities. We need to stop the balkanization of our country before it’s too late.
The invasion force will attempt to push their way past our military at our border and things might get messy.
