The Pentagon is sending over 5,200 troops to the border with Mexico as thousands of Central American migrants head north through Mexico.

General Terrence O'Shaughnessy said Operation Faithful Patriot would focus on Texas, Arizona and California.

There are already 2,100 National Guard members at the border, sent after a previous request by President Trump in April.

Meanwhile, President Trump speaking about open borders said that “it is not happening in his watch.”
