More than 3,000 active duty troops are heading to the southern border.
They will join the 23 hundred already there.
Secretary of defense pat shanahan asked the department of homeland security for more assistance earlier this month.
They will work in surveillance and detection.
President trump confirmed the increase in troops on twitter:
“More troops being sent to the Southern Border to stop the attempted Invasion of Illegals, through large Caravans, into our Country. We have stopped the previous Caravans, and we will stop these also. With a Wall it would be soooo much easier and less expensive. Being Built!”
