(Worthy News) - The administration will send about 800 troops to the U.S.-Mexico border ahead of the illegal immigrant caravan, a defense official confirmed Thursday, following through on President Trump’s pledge.

A majority of the new troops will be active-duty Army soldiers who specialize in support operations such as logistics and engineering. Medical staff will also be part of the deployment, with an Air Force contingent assisting in aerial evacuations.

They will join more than 2,000 National Guard troops already in the region, deployed in April as a previous caravan was testing the border. [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More...) ]
