Over 5200 USA troops heading to Mexico border

Migrant caravan takes a break in southern Mexico

"We're going to put tents up all over the place", told Fox News Channel's Laura Ingraham. "This is an invasion of our Country and our Military is waiting for you!"

President Donald Trump is escalating his threats against a migrant caravan traveling to the US border, labelling the effort an "invasion" and declaring the "Military is waiting for you".

"The president has made it clear that border security is national security", O'Shaughnessy said, as he detailed a much larger deployment that the 800 to 1,000 troops predicted by US officials last week.

In private, Homeland Security officials acknowledge they were alarmed by scenes of migrants breaking through a gate at Guatemala's border with Mexico last week.

Many in the caravan have been on the road for more than two weeks, since the group first formed in San Pedro Sula, Honduras.Raul Medina Melendez, security chief for the tiny municipality in Oaxaca state, said the town was distributing sandwiches and water to migrants camped in the central square Saturday night when a man with a megaphone asked people to wait their turn.Some hurled insults at the man with the megaphone, then they attacked him, Medina said.

Pedro and Olivier Giroud are also injury doubts while Ethan Ampadu's return to training may come too soon to feature on Wednesday. It was a special night for the manager who returned to Stamford Bridge for the first time tonight as a manager.

The troop deployment, one week before the U.S. midterm elections, appears to be the largest U.S. active-duty mobilization along the U.S. -Mexico boundary in decades and amounts to a significant militarization of American border security.

The Customs and Border Patrol is pushing a surge in personnel in response to the caravan of Central American immigrants, which was still hundreds of miles from the USA border, three administration officials said.

"By the end of the week, we will deploy over 5,200 soldiers to the southwest border", Air Force General Terrence O'Shaughnessy, head of the USA military's Northern Command, told reporters.

The move represents a massive military build-up along the border, where some 2,000 National Guardsmen are already working to provide help to overwhelmed authorities.

Trump denied his focus on the caravan is meant to help Republicans in next week's midterms, saying, "This has nothing to do with elections".

Luiz Inacio de Silva, former Workers Party President is now serving a 12-year prison sentence for his part in the corruption. French far-right leader Marine Le Pen has sent a message of encouragement to Brazilian President-elect Jair Bolsonaro .

Eight hundred troops already are on their way to southern Texas, O'Shaughnessy said, and their numbers will top 5,200 by week's end. Those deployments, which primarily include military police and engineers, began Monday and will continue throughout the week, according to the document.

On Monday, he tweeted without providing evidence, "Many Gang Members and some very bad people are mixed into the Caravan heading to our Southern Border". He said the caravans was "different" than those seen by the United States in the past, adding that they were better organized. But active duty troops are rarely deployed within the United States except for domestic emergencies like hurricanes or floods.

The projected US deployment is already roughly the same size as the USA military contingent in Iraq.

The US military, at the urging of the White House, plans to send 5,000 troops to the southern border to support the thousands of National Guard personnel and customs officials already there, The Wall Street Journal reported Monday.
