800 US troops are moving to the Texas border as well as 5, 200 troops expected to be deployed to the south-west region by the end of the week according to the head of US northern command, General Terrence O’Shaughnessy. The government’s is responsible for the thousands of Central American migrants who are presently in southern Mexico and are heading north. They are said to include families, children and elderly people. US President Trump, en-route winning the presidential election in 2016, fueled fear and anger concerning illegal immigration. His latest move is coming just days before the midterm elections. He is leveraging on the caravan situation in his campaign for next week’s midterm polls with the expectation of firing up his core support. In a tweet on Monday, he ordered the migrant caravan to go back as they won’t be received into the US except through legal process. He also stated that the Military is waiting for them at the border as their movement is seen as an invasion of the country.
