U.S. Northern Commander Air Force Gen. Terrence O’Shaughnessy said President Donald Trump’s deployment of 5,200 troops to the Mexico border to halt a caravan of immigrants is ‘just a start.’

Soldiers from Kentucky, Arizona and California are already in route to the Southern border, he said on Monday, as part of the president’s original order but there will likely be more to come.

‘By the end of this week, we will deploy over 5,200 soldiers to the southwest border. That is just the start of this operation. We’ll continue to adjust the numbers,’ O’Shaughnessy said, according to the Washington Examiner.

The Pentagon is dispatching 5,200 active military troops to comply with President Trump’s order to deter an immigrant caravan the president called an ‘invasion.’

The troops en route are in addition to the more than 2,000 members of the National Guard already providing assistance at the border now. Officials say the troops will provide ‘mission enhancing capabilities’ and will be armed.

‘We are bringing three helicopter companies in. They are enhanced with optics and censors that will allow them to operate at night and provide assistance to bring our [border patrol] personnel exactly where they need to be regardless of the conditions,’ Gen. O’Shaughnessy said.

    It’s a joke. You can tell because it’s not 10,000 or 20,000. America is finished. Rebuilding a white south is the ONLY solution but all the watchmen are either retarded or afraid.
