Sending more troops to our southern border has been under Trump administration discussion.
Among reporters and press photographers snapping photos at a Friday meeting at the Pentagon, a reporter asked Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan, “How many additional troops do you anticipate deploying to the border, and will those troops be involved in detaining migrants?” . . . .
He added, “To your detainee question, we haven’t received any details on that, but I expect increase in support will occur.”
