Currently, two sets of migrants, in accordance with various estimates numbering around 6,500 people, families mainly, are heading towards the united states through Mexico. Meanwhile, a third caravan from El Salvador has been formed at the El Salvador-Mexico border reportedly. Concurrently, in accordance with military planning documents, a lot of the crowd might dissolve along their long journey to the united states.
While the united states still has hardly any intel concerning the composition of the migrant caravans, a proven way or another the White House plans to outmatch the real amount of potential illegals and, or even, suppress them with brutal force. Currently, Washington has allocated roughly exactly the same amount of troops it has focused on fighting Islamic State in Syria (2,000) and Iraq (5,000). And when 15,000 troops are deployed to the border, they’ll outmatch the amount of US forces currently fighting in Afghanistan (14,000 troops).
In addition to sheer numbers, the united states forces could have drones, helicopters with night-vision capabilities, and fixed-wing aircraft at their disposal to guarantee the success of the military operation. Donald Trump is apparently happy with the deployment up to now, noting the “beautiful” sight of barbed wire decorating the tranquil scenery of the Rio Grande’s crossing across the US-Mexico border.
“We’ve our military on the border,” Trump said in Montana, while campaigning for the Republicans in hawaii before next week’s midterm election. “Today and I noticed all that beautiful barbed wire increasing, the barbed wire used could be a beautiful sight properly.”
