Migrant Caravan Pentagon Refuses Trump Order to Deploy US Troops to Border
"The requests that we have from the Department of Homeland Security and CBP (Customs and Border Protection) is to build (facilities) to support CBP personnel and our military personnel", he said.
The Trump administration last week ordered the deployment of thousands of active-duty troops to support Customs and Border Protection Agents in Texas, Arizona and California in response to the caravans.
"I noticed all that attractive barbed wire going up today", Trump said at a Montana campaign rally on Sunday. As many as 8,000 troops, if not more depending on operational demands, could eventually be deployed to the border in support of Operation Faithful Patriot.
"There are soldiers on the border putting up concertina wire and reinforcing the points of entry", the chairman said. We want to keep our journalism open and accessible and be able to keep providing you with news and analyses from the frontlines of Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish World.
By voicing its opposition, the Pentagon helped ensure that its mission was tailored to only providing support to USA government personnel on the border, US officials said.
On Friday night, Veracruz governor Miguel Ángel Yunes offered bus rides to the country's capital, however he quickly rescinded the offer, blaming maintenance work on Mexico City's water supply which he said left 7 million people without water over the weekend.
The Pentagon's statement is also aimed at dispelling the notion that the troops will be involved in law enforcement, but will rather be working on projects focused on "hardening" the border.
Trump has been very vocal about the caravan, calling it an "invasion" and saying it will be met by the military.
The request was turned down because the Department of Defense felt that active duty troops do not have the authority to conduct that type of mission unless they are granted additional authorities by the President.
The official noted that the request was different than a previously approved DHS request from earlier this year to house migrant families further along in the immigration process, on military bases.
Asked about the cost of the operation, Manning said it had yet to be determined by the Pentagon's financial services. The Department of Homeland Security disputes that characterization, and the story has been updated with DHS comment.
"The costs are being determined by our Comptroller and when we are in a position to provide them, we will do that", said Manning.
