Pentagon Stops Calling Trump\'s Border Deployment \'Operation Faithful Patriot\' Day After Election

The Trump administration announced plans to >deploy thousands of active-duty troops to the border in late October, amid the president’s frequent campaign refrains and tweets about incoming migrant caravans. Officials insisted it wasn’t a stunt, although the number of troops to be sent exceeded the first caravan’s numbers at that time and the military is barred from conducting immigration arrests. Trump said at one point that he might send >as many as 15,000 troops to the border, but as of last week, had deployed about 5,900.
