New York Times: More than 5,000 active-duty military troops will deploy to the southern border by the end of this week, Defense Department officials said on Monday, an escalation of a midterm election show of force against a caraan off Central American migrants that President Trump has characterized as an “invasion of our country.”

Stars and Stripes: President Donald Trump late Wednesday told reporters that he intends to send 10,000 to 15,000 troops to the U.S.-Mexico border, indicating that as many as 6,000 additional troops could be notified to prepare to deploy.

President Trump:  if the immigrants who are marching to the U.S. border throw rocks at our troops they will be shot.
