US Troops Lay Down Barbed Wire Along Border Ahead of Caravan

As three separate migrant caravans slowly made their way north through Mexico on Saturday, newly arrived US troops worked to lay a barbed-wire fence along the Texas side of the Rio Grande.

The soldiers worked with US Customs and Border Patrol officers to lay about 1,000 feet of fencing along the river, the Defense Department said. The makeshift barrier was installed underneath the McAllen-Hidalgo International Bridge, which crosses into Mexico. The overpass is in the small town of Hidalgo, about 250 miles south of San Antonio.

“I saw that beautiful barbed wire going up,” Trump said at a Saturday campaign rally in Montana. “Beautiful sight.”

A Border Patrol spokesman said in an email to The Post the fencing was part of “necessary preparations” for the caravans.

Roughly 900 troops have reached the US-Mexico border since the Trump administration began the deployment Oct. 26. The president vowed the forces would block the caravans, which contain thousands of migrants, from entering US turf.

Military units are heading to outposts along the border from Texas to California.

After saying about 5,000 active-duty troops would be deployed as part of Operation Faithful Patriot, Trump on Wednesday boosted the number from 10,000 to 15,000.

  1. If anyone is planning on going down there to fill in the gaps I would recommend watching this video from Security Guy on Youtube.. https://youtu.be/pkklepO5668

    I personally don’t know about the situation down there, just getting it from other people. I did leave a comment about this on the video, though I will say it here too.

    Supposedly Mexico City is shutting down their entire water system for 4 days to do repairs or something, so like around 7 million people will be without water for those days and who knows if it will only be 4 days. It could be longer and it just seems fishy they choose now to do it, during all the caravan stuff and right during election time.

    So I’m not sure if that could be connected, but if something goes wrong with that there could be a lot more caravan people coming then there is now if something does happen.

    1. Great idea. Like if we can’t get water here in Mexico city, let’s just join the caravan and head North to the good ole USA. They’ll let us all in at the same time and there’s lots of water up there.
      Soros must have stayed up all night thinking about that one?

    2. actually the water line repair has been in the works long since the caravan departed. I believe I read about it 5 weeks ago.

    3. I just Text my friend from church and he has family in Mexico City. He text back that yes they are going to shut down the water but selling it to surounding states and creating a fiasco. He is a former coyote and drug smuggler and has lots intresting story’s. He got saved in Christ about 12yr ago. Now a very good brother in Christ to me.

    4. Mexico City has been running out of water for the last 40 years. It is built on top of a lake that is drying up with to many people.

  2. I suspect this is the beginning of something big. Also, with Russia and China beating war drums, Israel and Iran,, as well as American election results about to get real, we may be in for a very bumpy ride in the near future.. I dont think the Democrap -Communist filth are going to let up. They have plans to ignite something disastrous in our nation. I hope and pray I am wrong. God, save our Republic. And help us turn back to You. Vigilance.

  3. Why does everyone continue calling razor wire barbed wire? You get tangled up in razor wire & you’ll wish it was barbed wire.

  4. I am confused as to why everyone is calling it barbed wire , when plainly its razor wire . there are no barbs on that wire in the photo’s , It appears to be the new square type of razor wire , not that I care or are any kind of expert , but their is a huge difference . either way it wont work without the will of the people to stop the invasion of our country. posturing is just a bluff , and cowardice . Prayer is much more powerful , pray to heal our land . Godspeed Patriots !
