October 30 , 2018
5,200 troops are being deployed by the Pentagon at the border with Mexico to stop thousands of Central American migrants bound for the US. The migrants are nearly 900 miles away and will arrive at the border in some time. At present, there are 2,100 National Guard members posted on the border which were sent after a previous request made by President Trump in April.
