Hundreds of vulnerable migrants cross river into Mexico

Texas company secures $145 million contract to build part of border wall

CSBA says that on the high end, the deployment would cost $143 per troop per day for operating and maintenance costs and $112 per troop per day on the low end. "There is no plan for soldiers to come in contact with immigrants or reinforce the Department of Homeland Security as they are conducting their mission".

The next day, he said troops should take action if the migrants threw rocks at them. Over the past week, thousands of troops were deployed to the border to begin hardening points of entry and securing crossings ahead of the anticipated arrival of migrant caravans.

The migrants hope to regroup in the capital, seeking medical care and rest while they await stragglers. That doesn't mean shoot them.

According to official documents obtained by the Washington Post, troops are allowed to use deadly force to protect "all persons, foreign or domestic, who are faced with imminent threat of death or serious bodily harm, and where lesser means have failed or can not be reasonably employed". However, he clarified that only military policemen would be armed along the border as they provide force protection to other military units. It's not clear if Mattis weighed in on the decision to reject the request for troops to perform law enforcement functions.

Pentagon officials declined a preliminary Trump administration request for the United States military to build facilities to house detained migrants as part of its new mission on the Mexican border, USA officials said.

Customs and Border Protection declined to comment.

Last week, the Pentagon announced it would send 5,200 additional troops to the U.S. -Mexico border in "Operation Faithful Patriot", a mission aimed to "harden the points of entry" as a caravan of migrants approaches the U.S. border from the south.

Mauricio Pochettino is without a number of players for PSV clash
We showed great character and I am so pleased with the way we played, trying to be patient and not making rash decisions'. Only in Pochettino's first season in charge - the 2014-15 campaign - have Spurs posed less of a goal threat.

Soldiers of the United States Army have strung barbed wire along the Rio Grande river in South Texas as part of Operation Faithful Patriot.

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Joseph Dunford speaks during a press briefing August 28 at the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia. A wasteful deployment of over-stretched soldiers and Marines would be made much worse if they use force disproportional to the threat they face.

The cost of mobilizing all those troops is estimated to be around $220 million.

The president said last Wednesday that the number of troops deployed could reach 15,000, although the Pentagon put the number at 7,000 for now.

Pentagon spokesman Bill Speaks, meanwhile, said that the military "have not received a request from DHS to build facilities to house migrant families". One official says that DHS was informally discouraged from making the request by the defense department.

Reuters was first to report that the Pentagon had balked at the initial request from the Department of Homeland Security.
