Up to 1,000 of the troops will be members of the Texas National Guard. About 750 of them will assist the department of homeland security “with operational, logistical, and administrative support” at “temporary adult migrant holding facilities” in Donna and Tornillo, Texas, according to the Pentagon statement.

“Migrants will be supervised by DHS law enforcement personnel,” it added.
