US could send as many as 15,000 troops to Mexico border: Trump

President Donald Trump said Wednesday that as many as 15,000 soldiers could be dispatched to the US-Mexican border to stop what he described as dangerous groups of immigrants.

 

With more than 5,000 soldiers already being sent, Trump told reporters "we'll do up to anywhere between 10 and 15,000 military personnel."

 

"It's a dangerous group of people," Trump said of the latest caravan of mostly impoverished Central Americans trying to walk through Mexico to the US border.

 

"They're not coming into our country."
