Hundreds of U.S. troops are said to be making their way to America’s southern border to assist the National Guard and DHS aiming to stop a migrant caravan making its way from Honduras. According to a U.S. official, 800 soldiers are being sent to offer “logistical support”.

In response to president Trump’s threat to send the military to the border, Defense Secretary James Mattis could order the deployment as soon as today, Fox News reports.

The official said roughly 800 soldiers will be sent to the area to offer “logistical support,” including providing tents and vehicles.

It’s not immediately clear which units are being tasked with the mission as details are still being finalized.

Defense Secretary James Mattis could sign the deployment orders as soon as today.

Thursday morning, president Donald Trump took to twitter calling the caravan a “National Emergency” requiring military support to stop it.

The National Guard, assisting Homeland Security, currently has 2,100 troops on the southern border.

The caravan of around 7,000 migrants is still 1,000 or more miles away from the closest entry point into the United States. Many are suffering exhaustion and other health issues.

The actual number of migrants with the caravan is not known as some are turning back to their homelands while others are joining along the way. Sickness, fear and harassment are whittling down the caravan, CNBC reports.




Little by little, sickness, fear and police harassment are whittling down the migrant caravan making its way to the U.S. border, with many of the 4,000 to 5,000 migrants camped overnight under plastic sheeting in a town in southern Mexico complaining of exhaustion.

The group, many with children and even pushing toddlers in strollers, planned to depart Mapastepec at dawn Thursday with more than 1,000 miles still to go before they reach the U.S. border.

But in recent days a few hundred have accepted government offers to bus them back to their home countries.

President Trump continues to call for a border wall to help combat invasions such as the caravan heading this way. However, it seams to have less appeal now that republicans are trying to fund it through taxpayers instead of making Mexico pay for it as promised.

Though mainstream media outlets such as CNBC paints a picture of hundreds of migrants suffering trying to make their way to America for a better life, there is much more at stake. The safety of this nation. As Sara Carter points out, there are people joining up with the caravan from several terrorist countries including members of the MS 13 gang.

It’s hard to find fault with Trump’s decision to put our military on the border, it is after all where they belong. Our troops are spread out throughout the world fighting battles for rich globalist which have nothing to do with out freedom. The border is where they belong, protecting us from real threats.

The TSA’s (Transportation Security Administration) has a secret program called “Quiet Skies.”  This program is tracking normal everyday Americans and surveilling them without their knowledge or consent – and without the ordinary travelers being accused of a crime or being on any watchlist of any kind.

“Federal air marshals have begun following ordinary US citizens not suspected of a crime or on any terrorist watch list and collecting extensive information about their movements and behavior,” reports Jana Winter, a Boston Globe Spotlight fellow.  The program has been criticized by the Air Marshalls who are tasked with carrying it out because they have been commanded to follow around Americans who pose no threat. Many see it as a waste of time and resources.

As first reported in the Boston Globe, the “Quiet Skies” program uses a computer algorithm to spot flyers (including ordinary and everyday American citizens) whose travel and activities match with current threat intelligence. Those flyers are reviewed by a human team that vets the information. If the human team decides something in the flyer’s background raises concerns, that flyer will be surveilled by Federal Air Marshals.

Although the Air Marshals still followed the orders to invade the privacy of ordinary citizens, they have expressed some concerns. Some air marshals, in interviews and internal communications shared with the Boston Globe, say the program has them tasked with shadowing travelers who appear to pose no real threat. One example is a “businesswoman who happened to have traveled through [Turkey] … a Southwest Airlines flight attendant [who was on duty] … a fellow federal law enforcement officer.” One air marshal’s message to another read: “jeez we need to have an easy way to document this nonsense. Congress needs to know that it’s gone from bad to worse.”

The TSA said in a statement to CBS News the program’s primary purpose is to “ensure passengers and flight crew are protected during air travel,” adding that it doesn’t take race and religion into account and “is not intended to surveil ordinary Americans with routine reviews and active management via legal, privacy and civil rights and liberties offices, it is a practical method of keeping another act of terrorism from occurring at 30,000 feet.”

Most Americans should know better than to accept that answer, however.  It’s a massive expansion of government intrusion into the lives of everyone.
