Trump sends troops to border, an issue that fires up base

Here, Central American migrants, part of a caravan trying to reach the USA, cross from Guatemala into a Mexican border and customs facility in Ciudad Hidalgo on Wednesday.

In a statement sent out Thursday afternoon, Border Patrol says media groups, and possibly armed civilians, will be trying to access people's land without permission. No one at CBP, including the Border Patrol, endorses this activity.

The additional troops would provide logistical and other support to the Border Patrol, said the US official, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss a plan that had not been finalized and formally announced.

The troops are part of a security operation that is expected to be up and running by Tuesday.

KRGV's Christian von Preysing spoke with several property owners about the agency's efforts.

The president said nobody is getting across our border illegally and the caravan should just turnaround now, in a tweet Thursday. Most are Hondurans, seeking to escape the poverty and violence that plagues the region.

Secretary of Defense James Mattis is reportedly planning to deploy hundreds of troops to the United States' border with Mexico - something President Donald Trump has repeatedly threatened.

Migrants who do reach the USA border can claim asylum under US and global law.

"If they come here illegally with no legitimate reason to stay, they absolutely will be apprehended and removed immediately", she said, adding that the migrants should seek refuge in Mexico instead. "Go back to your Country and if you want, apply for citizenship like millions of others are doing!" tweeted the President. There are 2,200 national guard troops now serving on the border; 1,145 soldiers in Texas, 115 in New Mexico, 580 in Arizona and the remaining 360 in California.

"If someone migrates to the United States, it's to work, and working is not a crime", he said.

Trump earlier this year ordered the deployment of National Guard members to the U.S. -Mexico border to respond to a spike in illegal border crossings.

The troops will also provide tents and medical care for border authorities in those areas.

Trump hinted at the troop announcement at a rally in Wisconsin on Wednesday. You're going to see a very secure border.
