The Pentagon said Monday more than 5,100 US troops are now stationed across the border with Mexico. "The defense Ministry expects that more than 7 thousand soldiers will soon be to support the border service", - he said. The untrained volunteers plan to dig in along border spots with camouflage clothing, flak jackets, semiautomatic weapons, night-vision goggles and aerial drones with thermal sensing equipment to locate people in darkness, McGauley said.

"Our military will not receive combat pay or hostile-fire pay as they are not deploying to a combat area, nor are they expected to be subject to hostile fire", he said, adding that they will be eligible for a separation allowance.

A second caravan of around 1,000 to 1,500 people from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador entered Mexico last week and is around 1,000 miles from the southern U.S. border, while a much smaller caravan also entered Mexico from Guatemala on Friday - wading across the Suchiate River after Mexican authorities blocked access over a bridge. "Fought back hard and viciously against Mexico at Northern Border before breaking through". "When they throw rocks like they did at the Mexico military police, consider it a rifle".

The first coils of razor wire were unwound last Friday near McAllen-Hidalgo-Reynosa International Bridge in Texas.

Lion Air jet had damaged airspeed indicator on last 4 flights
The Lion Air investigation comes after Indonesia's government ordered an inspection of all Boeing 737 Max 8 planes in the country. Black box data recovered from the crashed Lion Air jet showed the plane had an airspeed indicator problem on its four flights.

"There is no plan for us military forces to be involved in the actual mission of denying people entry into the United States", Dunford said. And shooting someone over throwing a rock is definitely not proportional.

"Barbed wire looks like it's going to be very effective, too, with soldiers standing in front of it", Trump told a campaign rally in Cleveland. But they do that with us, they're going to be arrested for a long time. "I didn't say shoot".

The Posse Comitatus law forbids the USA military from enforcing domestic laws, unless there's no other choice. The Department of Homeland Security's Customs and Border Protection agency have the mission of securing the borders.

Last week, President Trump described "massive cities of tents" being built by the military that he said would house migrants seeking asylum. They shouldn't have any interactions with individuals at the border unless absolutely necessary.

According to the New York Post, "The soldiers worked with US Customs and Border Patrol officers to lay about 1,000 feet of fencing along the river, the Defense Department said". DOD was tasked to provide logistical and medical support.

That, in part, led Banks to say the use of active-duty troops to defend against the caravan was unlawful on its own.
