THE SURGE: Trump Poised to Send 15000 TROOPS to US-Mexico Border

Central American migrants are moving through southern Mexico in a second US-bound caravan

It's not exactly clear when the migrant caravans will arrive at the US border, but Trump said the military and Border Patrol will be ready to process them.

Thousands of tired Central American migrants in a caravan that has advanced 250 miles (410 kilometers) into Mexico but remains far from the US border hope they won't have to walk anymore, at least for a while.

Trump has ordered the deployment of thousands of American troops to the U.S. -Mexico border ahead of a thousands-strong caravan of migrants heading north from Central America, who are now in Mexico.

Trump made the announcement after a wave of falsehoods, many of them racially charged, about what he again called an "invasion" of Central American migrants and asylum seekers now traveling toward the USA border.

He also suggested that US troops the US-Mexico border could fire on someone in the migrant caravan if the person throws rocks or stones at them.

Reported by the Wall Street Journal, a total of 5,000 troops will be deployed to the southwest border by the USA military.

The migrant caravan poses a serious threat to the sovereignty of the nation's borders, said Trump.

On Wednesday, it said more than 7,000 troops would support the Department of Homeland Security along the border.

This smaller group is similar to the first migrant caravan, which infuriated US President Donald Trump and fuelled his anti-immigration message ahead of the midterm elections.

Trump has been escalating his already aggressive attacks on undocumented immigrants ahead of the November 6 midterm elections. The group is approximately 900 miles from the border.

"Mass uncontrolled immigration is especially unfair to the many wonderful law-abiding immigrants already living here who followed the rules and waited their turn", he said.

Los Angeles finally scored on a safety with 2:47 left in the first half when the defense blew up a run play from the Green Bay 1. Rams: WR Cooper Kupp missed his second straight game with a knee injury, opening the chance for Reynolds to shine.

Should the President decide to send the full 15,000 troops to the U.S. border, then that would be almost double the number of troops the United States has deployed in both Iraq and Syria combined to fight ISIS.

Just 24 hours later, Trump thrust new uncertainty into the picture, catching the Pentagon by surprise.

Currently, over 5,200 soldiers are heading to Texas, Arizona, and California to secure the border before two migrant caravans, currently comprising roughly 6,500 people, reach the US. This is Trump speaking to reporters Wednesday.

"We are not releasing anymore", he said.

"I will fulfill my sacred obligation to defend the United States of America", Trump said.

White House aides had considered having Trump deliver an immigration speech earlier in the week, but the Pittsburgh synagogue massacre on Saturday delayed those plans.

Several groups, including the American Civil Liberties Union, have accused Trump of politicizing the military ahead of next week's congressional elections with his plans to use active military personnel to buttress border patrol efforts.

The president also pointed to the "roughness of these people" in the first and second caravans.

"This shooter also apparently believed that Jews were funding this caravan", Schiff told CNN.

Trump has tweeted that the caravan is a "National Emergency" but has made no formal declaration as required under the 1976 National Emergencies Act, which governors executive powers.
