Trump administration requests more U.S. troops at Mexican border

The Department of Homeland Security asked for more US troops to be sent to the Mexican border, according to NBC on Thursday.
The troops would be deployed to add 160 miles of wire on top of the current fencing, the report stated.
Troops were first sent to the border in late November and were set to come home at the end of January. If the additionally troops are approved, two US officials told NBC that the troops may not come home until September.
