The president also indicated last week that the number of troops deployed for this cause could reach 15,000, although the Pentagon put the number at 7,000 for now. "There is no plan for the soldiers to come in contact with immigrants or to reinforce the Department of Homeland Security as they are conducting their mission".

Nor will troops receive hostile-fire pay, which is given to service members in close proximity to a firefight or exposed to a barrage of fire from an enemy combatant.

"But we're going to arrest those people quickly and for a long time", he told reporters. "I didn't say shoot".

US troops, along with Customs and Border Protection officers, have been working to secure sections of the Texas-Mexico border, in part by laying down barbed-wire fencing, as new photos show. DOD is also providing some medical support.

Trump said last week he plans to build tents to house migrants, who would be held in those facilities while the USA government weighs their asylum request. "We are absolutely in support of [Customs and Border Patrol]".

When the Trump administration first asked the Pentagon to send troops to the southern border, the administration wanted the troops to take on duties that Department of Defense officials viewed as law enforcement functions, CNN has learned.
