The military got new orders that are the bad news the migrant caravan was dreading
Donald Trump sent troops to the border to stop the migrant caravan invasion.
Fake news journalists accused the President of an election year stunt.
But Trump just gave the military the one order that is bad news for the caravan.
Former Secretary of Defense James Mattis was not a fan of deploying troops to the Southern border.
However, he resigned just before Christmas.
Now that Mattis is no longer in the way, the Pentagon stated that the troops’ deployment will last until at least September.
Fox News reports:
As the ongoing partial government shutdown over funding for President Trump’s proposed border wall continues and the White House debates declaring a state of emergency to pay for it, the Pentagon on Monday extended the military’s mission on the southern border by eight months.
In a statement, the Defense Department said Acting Secretary of Defense Pat Shanahan had approved a Dec. 27 request from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to extend and expand the troops’ role. There are currently roughly 2,350 active-duty troops currently supporting the border mission, down from a high of nearly 6,000 late last year.
U.S. military support to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), which was previously set to expire Jan. 31, is now slated to end on Sept. 30. The Pentagon had extended the troops’ mission on the border once before, on Dec. 15.
Trump supporters took the President’s order to send troops to the border as a sign of his commitment to stop illegal immigration.
The President also proved the fake news to be liars when they claimed he sent the troops to the border for a political stunt.
The mission is real and the extended deployment proves it.
