[World Wide Web Comprehensive report] US President Trump said that the United States will deploy about 15,000 soldiers on the US-Mexico border with a similar scale to the Afghan war to stop what he calls "dangerous immigrant groups."

According to Singapore’s Lianhe Zaobao on November 1st, AFP reported that Trump said on Wednesday (October 31) that a large number of poor Central Americans tried to cross Mexico to the US border. "The number of soldiers dispatched can range from 10,000 to 15,000."

Trump said: "This is a group of dangerous people... they can't enter our country."

The report said that the number of soldiers announced by Trump far exceeded The number of military personnel publicly deployed by the US government a few days ago. The Pentagon said on Monday that more than 5,200 soldiers will be deployed to the border, but that number will rise. On Wednesday, the Pentagon said it would send more than 7,000 soldiers to the border to give support to the Department of Homeland Security.

It is reported that homeland security on the southern border of the United States rarely involves active duty forces. The deployment of 15,000 soldiers means that the number of troops on the border is similar to the size of the US war in Afghanistan.

The US mid-term election is coming, and Trump has taken this act of suppressing the "invasion" of illegal immigrants as the core of his campaign with the Republican Party. The Democratic Party believes that such speech is alarmist and even racist.
