Armed Militia Groups Head To The Border, Sparking Military Concerns

Army soldiers from Ft. Riley Kansas install protective wire along the Rio Grande at the U.S.-Mexico border on Nov. 2 2018

The number of United States troops sent to the border with Mexico to assist border guards, until the end of Monday (local time), will reach 5.2 thousand people. Currently, the caravan is moving in the direction of this border and its population has already exceeded seven thousand people.

"The Caravans are made up of some very tough fighters and people", he tweeted October 31.

"We're not going to put up with that", Trump said during a White House press conference. "Mexican soldiers hurt, were unable or unwilling to stop Caravan".

"There is no plan for USA military forces to be involved in the actual mission of denying people entry into the United States", Dunford said.

"While DHS has discussed the need for potential assistance with force protection of CBP personnel, calling this line of support "law enforcement activities" would be factually inaccurate", the DHS official said. "They hit them with rocks".

"Barbed wire looks like it's going to be very effective, too, with soldiers standing in front of it", Trump told a campaign rally in Cleveland. "I didn't say shoot". "But we're going to arrest those people quickly and for a long time", he told reporters.

Recreational marijuana advocates were lighting up and passing joints in Detroit after a ballot proposal passed to legalize pot. And while a majority of legal states only allow the cultivation of six cannabis plants per individual, MI will allow 12 .

The Pentagon estimates that by the end of Monday there will be 5,200 active duty forces in Arizona, California and Texas with that number rising to more than 7,000 in coming days.

Air Force Gen. Terrence O'Shaughnessy, head of U.S. Northern Command, last week reaffirmed that "everything that we are doing is in line with and adherence to Posse Comitatus", a congressional act dating to 1878 prohibiting the military from participating in domestic law-enforcement activities.

That's not all: DHS also asked the Defense Department if troops could build detention facilities for migrants trying to enter the United States.

This weekend, USA troops continued to work along the border with Mexico, ostensibly to protect the United States from what President Trump has called an illegal immigrant invasion.

The U.S. Border Patrol late last month warned landowners in Texas to expect "possible armed civilians" to come onto their property because of the caravan, The Associated Press reported. DOD was tasked to provide logistical and medical support.

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.
