How long will active-duty troops be deployed to the US-Mexico border? | Military Times

As the number of active-duty troops headed to the U.S. southern border continues to rise, critics are demanding answers on how long the controversial mission will last and how much it will cost.

In a letter to Defense Secretary Jim Mattis on Thursday, 108 House Democrats blasted the commitment of more than 7,000 troops to southern states as “another example of the President using fear-mongering tactics” rather than sound national security policy.

They want to know specifics on the timeline for the mission, costs of the effort and “what is the nature of the expected interaction” with migrants.
