Troops at U.S.-Mexican border to start coming home

Troops at border starting to come home

The 5,800 troops who were rushed to the Southwest border amid President Donald Trump’s pre-election warnings about a refugee caravan will start coming home as early as this week — just as some of those migrants are beginning to arrive.

Democrats and Republicans have criticized the deployment as a ploy by the president to use active-duty military forces as a prop to try to stem Republican losses in this month’s midterm elections. Their withdrawal after just a few weeks could further fuel claims that the military was misused when there was no emergency.

Architect of bin Laden raid: Trump 'threatens the Constitution' when he attacks the media

Admiral McRaven targeted by Draft Dodger in ChiefRetired Adm. William McRaven on Sunday stood by his previous statement that President Donald Trump's attacks on the news media represent "the greatest threat to democracy" after the President dismissed him as a "Hillary Clinton backer" in an interview that aired on Fox News.

"I did not back Hillary Clinton or anyone else," McRaven, who oversaw the operation that killed Osama bin Laden, told CNN. "I am a fan of President Obama and President George W. Bush, both of whom I worked for. I admire all presidents, regardless of their political party, who uphold the dignity of the office and who use that office to bring the nation together in challenging times."

US military rejected White House request to build migrant detention facilities

Military rejected WH request to build detention homes on the borderThe US military declined a draft request from the Department of Homeland Security last month to build housing for detained migrants, during early discussions in the Trump administration about the military’s role on the border, according to officials.

By voicing its opposition, the Pentagon helped ensure that its mission was tailored to providing support only to government personnel on the border.

After initial discussions about the issue, there was no mention of troops building migrant housing facilities when the DHS later made a formal request to the Pentagon for help on the border, the officials said.

US plans to send 800 troops to border as caravan travels through Mexico

US to send 800 troops to border

The Trump administration is planning to dispatch at least 800 active duty troops to the southern border at the direction of a president who has sought to transform fears about immigration into electoral gains in the midterms as a caravan of thousands of migrants makes its way through Mexico.

The US defense secretary, Jim Mattis, is expected to sign an order sending the troops to the border, bolstering national guard forces already there, an official said Thursday.

The action comes as Donald Trump has spent recent days calling attention to the caravan of Central Americans slowly making their way by foot into southern Mexico, but still more than 1,000 miles from US soil.
