TROOPS TO TX: US Military Sends 250 ‘Active Duty Troops’ to Eagle Pass, TX to BLOCK ‘Caravan’

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.11.19

The US military is deploying 250 “active duty troops” to Eagle Pass, Texas to block the approaching ‘migrant caravan’ from entering the United States, reports NBC News.

“Under the new directive, the troops will be moved from Arizona to Texas and — in a sign of the Pentagon’s frustrations — will not represent an increase in the overall number of U.S. troops assigned to the border mission,” writes NBC.

“We are extremely appreciative of the work that they do … but this is something that is unprecedented,” said Eagle Pass Mayor Ramsey English Cantu.
