First 100 troops arrive at US-Mexico border and start erecting tents after Trump orders them to SHOOT migrants, as he warns Missouri rally 'these are not angels and we are not letting them in'


  • Some 7,000 military personnel will arrive at the border through the weekend

  • Trump issued a dire to would-be immigrants with the caravan saying that the troops would return fire if rocks are thrown at them 

  • The 4,000-strong caravan will depart from Matias Romero, Mexico, early Friday and make its way toward Veracruz, stopping in Donaji or Sayula de Aleman

  • Federal police in Mexico have done little to stop the caravan headed for the US 


By MEGAN SHEETS  and GEOFF EARLE DEPUTY U.S. POLITICAL EDITOR FOR DAILYMAIL.COM
PUBLISHED: 23:17 EDT, 1 November 2018 | UPDATED: 09:20 EDT, 2 November 2018The first 100 troops have arrived at the US-Mexico border to await the arrival of the migrant caravan slowly making its way north from Central America.
On Thursday, 109 troops from the 591st Military Police Company were taken from Fort Hood, Texas, to to Lackland Air Force Base to help with operations there. 
Separately, troops were seen erecting tents at the Fort Huachuca base in Sierra Vista in Arizona. 
President Trump has vowed to send as many as 15,000 troops to tackle the three migrant caravans which are snaking their way through Mexico towards the U.S.
They are still 900 miles away and weeks from getting close but the president has bolstered his promise to stop them,  
Some 7,000 military members will be arriving at the border through the weekend as President Donald Trump has said he's willing to send as many as 15,000 troops to provide support to Border Patrol agents.
The migrants, of which there are now are still at least 900 miles away. 
Trump issued a dire warning to the would-be immigrants with the caravan in a fiery speech at the White House on Thursday, saying that the troops would return fire if rocks are thrown at them. 
With their eyes set on Texas, the 4,000-strong caravan will depart from Matias Romero, Mexico, early Friday and make their way up the Gulf coast toward Veracruz, likely stopping in Donaji or Sayula de Aleman.
Meanwhile, Mexican federal police have been fairly tame in their efforts to stop the determined group.

The first 100 active-duty US military servicemembers have arrived at the US-Mexico border as part of Operation Faithful Patriot, as a caravan of Central American migrants winds its way north through Mexico after having rejected Mexico's offer of "shelter, medical attention, schooling and jobs."

The US troops are doing initial assessments of the border crossing at McAllen, Texas according to Fox News, while a Defense Department official told the network that there are around 2,600 troops at staging bases "largely in Texas," while several thousand more are anticipated to arrive this weekend to California and Arizona. 



The Pentagon has said that over 7,000 US troops are being sent to the border, while President Trump said on Wednesday that the number could reach as high as 15,000.

Trump has drawn a hard line on immigration just ahead of the midterm elections.
Last week, officials indicated that 800 to 1,000 troops might be sent. On Monday, they announced that about 5,200 were being deployed. The next day, an Air Force general rejected a news report putting the figure at up to 14,000.
The troops going to the border areas of Texas, Arizona and California are a small fraction of the nation's roughly 1.3 million active-duty service members, and the mission is set to last only 45 days. -Fox News

Troop movement has been documented over the last several days over social media:

The military operation is being headed up by Gen. Terrance O'Shaughnessy - head of the US Northern Command. He has argued that the caravan is a potential threat, though has not expanded on what he meant. 
"I think what we have seen is we’ve seen clearly an organization at a higher level than we’ve seen before," O’Shaughnessy said. "We’ve seen violence coming out of the caravan and we’ve seen as they’ve passed other international borders, we’ve seen them behave in a nature that has not been what we’ve seen in the past."
On Thursday following reports that members of the caravan were throwing rocks at Mexican forces, President Trump said that the US military would treat anyone throwing rocks as if they were "rifles," implying that troops would fire on the caravan.

[ltr]On whether the military at southern border might fire on migrants, Pres Trump says "I hope not."

"I hope there won't be that, but I will tell you this – anybody throwing rocks... we will consider that a firearm, because there's not much difference." https://abcn.ws/2QdaevU [/ltr]

Trump's comments come on the heels of several clips featuring violent migrants, including this one of rocks being thrown at Mexican security forces on the Guatemalan border. [/size]
