Upwards of 800 soldiers will soon be deployed to the United States’ southern border with Mexico, with US officials telling Fox News they will join thousands of National Guard members already operating in the region.

According to Fox, “Hundreds of U.S. troops are set to make their way to the southern border to help Homeland Security and the National Guard as a caravan with thousands of migrants pushes north with the goal of crossing into America, a U.S. official confirmed to Fox News on Thursday.”

The troops will provide “logistical support” for federal authorities patrolling the region; including vehicles and additional equipment.

“I am bringing out the military for this National Emergency. They will be stopped!” said the President Thursday morning.

This is a developing story.
