Washington, The Pentagon is moving some 250

troops from the state of Arizona to a border crossing in Texas after a

large number of immigrants from Central America arrived in northern

Mexico.

The spokesman said the troops would be sent to Eagle Pass in Texas

at the request of the Department of Homeland Security. This number of

soldiers will assist Customs and Border Protection officials in logistical

matters.

The United States has recently reinforced its military presence on the

south-western border in anticipation of cross-border convoys of

migrants.

The Pentagon announced on Sunday that it would send 3,750 troops

to the area to support border protection forces.
