Pentagon Extends Wall Deployment Through September

0

The Pentagon has extended the U.S. military’s support mission along the southwestern border through the end of September.

Acting Defense Secretary Pat Shanahan also approved a request from the Department of Homeland Security that officials have said will place 116 miles of concertina wire between ports of entry along the border.

The original 45-day border support mission approved by then-Defense Secretary James Mattis last fall was supposed to end on Dec. 15 ahead of the arrival of migrant caravans from Central America.
