The Pentagon is not wasting any time in securing the southern borer, even as lawmakers continue to debate the matter on Capitol Hill.
Another migrant caravan is reportedly forming in Honduras. The caravan’s organizers plan to leave for the U.S. sometime next week, and they are using social media as a way to spread the word. Mexico is already sending hundreds of additional law enforcement agents to its southern border, in anticipation of the caravan.

A federal judge ruled the government cannot deport a Honduran woman without her daughter. U.S. District Judge Randolph Moss issued a temporary restraining order on Monday, saying the mother could not be deported if her daughter is still in custody. The unidentified mother and daughter reportedly came to the U.S. two years ago, and are currently being held together at a family detention center in South Texas. This ruling follows recent reports indicating how illegal immigrants are using loopholes, including illegally crossing the border with children, in order to avoid deportation. U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner, Kevin McAleenan said earlier this year, with families and children crossing, there are virtually no consequences to being apprehended.
