Thousands More US Troops Headed To Southern Border

Over 3,000 additional active duty troops will be deployed to the southern US border to bolster security, says CNN.

The newly deployed troops will be joining the 2,300 troops already there.

The troops that are already stationed at the border were originally scheduled to come home on December 15.

The additional forces will allow the Department of Defense to fulfill a Department of Homeland Security request for assistance approved earlier this month.
