BREAKING: Shanahan Vows “Military Won’t Leave Until Border is Secure” | News Thud

On Saturday, Patrick Shanahan, the current acting Defense Secretary, made it clear that the military remains committed to securing the US-Mexico border, as law enforcement officials continue struggling to address the growing numbers of migrants.“We’re not going to leave until the border is secure,” said Shanahan, who explained, “This isn’t about identifying a problem, it’s about fixing a problem more quickly.”Yesterday, Shanahan approved an additional $1.5 billion dollars which will be allocated from Pentagon funding and used to further construction of the barrier at the US southern border.US Border Patrol and other law enforcement agencies have repeatedly sought help as the border crisis worsens exponentially, with over 100,000 illegal migrants being reportedly detained in March, and another 100,000 in April.
