Pentagon sending 5,200 troops to the border in ‘Operation Faithful Patriot’ amid Trump condemnation of migrant caravan

The Pentagon announced Monday it will deploy 5,200 additional troops to the U.S.-Mexico border by the end of the week to stop thousands of migrants and refugees in a caravan from entering the country.

Gen. Terrence O’Shaughnessy, the commander with the U.S. Northern Command and North American Aerospace Defense Command, announced the decision at a news conference and said the deployment, called “Operation Faithful Patriot,” is to “harden the points of entry.”

“We know border security is national security,” he said. “The president has made it clear that border security is national security.”

Fukushima is worse than ever. A blatant fascist is taking over Brazil , just as Brazil is getting back some humanity since the fascist junta, that ruled it for years. At a time of extreme climate change, unprecedented economic trouble, grave nuclear threats from old-rotten-reactors, DT is all about making it worse
