Trump Adds More Troops to Border Defense Initiative

President Trump has announced that he’s sending more troops to defend the U.S. border from a massive migrant caravan.
It was originally estimated by the Pentagon that they would send thousands of troops, but President Trump announced Wednesday that he would send 15,000.
Trump has stated that the migrant caravan headed to the United States southern border with Mexico is “made up of some very tough fighters and people.”

He has promised that the U.S. will not let these caravans in and has cautioned the caravan to turn around.

The caravan is at minimum 30 days away from reaching the border. It has between 900 and 1000 miles left to travel to the nearest border crossing and is moving at 20-30 miles per day.
