No Danger Pay For US Troops Deployed To The US-Mexico Border

President Donald Trump's decision to deploy U.S. active duty troops and earlier deployment of National Guard forces to the southern border could cost between $200 million and $300 million, according to an independent analysis and Department of Defense figures on guard deployments.

He said that "barbed wire, used properly, can be a lovely sight".

On Oct. 31, the Pentagon announced it would deploy roughly 5,200 active-duty troops to support Operation Faithful Patriot, a mission to reinforce U.S. Customs and Border Patrol in its effort to stop a large "caravan" of migrants approaching the United States from Central America.

"We have a problem at the border", he said.

He was talking about protecting our country from those who aim to storm the borders in an illegal attempt to set foot here and somehow instantly enjoy all of the many benefits of legal, tax-paying Americans citizens - simply because these individuals from other countries choose to and think they deserve this.

President Donald Trump told supporters at a Montana rally on Saturday that the barbed wire installed by active-duty troops deployed to the U.S. -Mexico border this week was "beautiful".

Pentagon spokesman Bill Speaks, meanwhile, said that the military "have not received a request from DHS to build facilities to house migrant families".

"When that comes to me as a military leader, I ask a couple of questions". "Self defense is an inalienable right of an American soldier".

It was also agreed that China will support Pakistan in establishing special economic zones, according to sources. Imran Khan said he had followed President Xi as a statesman during his political carrier spanning over 22 years.

That number could reach 7,000 in weeks to come, The Associated Press reported.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin McAleenan said there was a similar caravan at the Guatemala-Mexico border region consisting of 3,000 people.

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

Manning said only military police would carry weapons and stressed that there were no plans for USA troops to come in contact with protesters or migrants.

Manning also clarified that Military Police (MP's) will be the only active duty forces to be armed during the operation.

There is still no official cost estimate made public for the 45-day mission, but Manning said the Defense Department will "absorb" the costs of the operation.

The official also said there were about 2,600 troops at staging bases, mostly in Texas, with several thousand more expected to flow in this past weekend and move into California and Arizona.
