Pentagon Extends Wall Deployment Through September


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.
