The U.S. will send 5,000 troops to the U.S.-Mexico to counter a massive migrant caravan, the Wall Street Journal reported Monday.

The new estimate is a dramatic increase from Thursday, when the military planned to only deploy 800 troops.

According to The Journal, troops will be stationed at ports of entry divided among Texas, Arizona and California and will later help with administrative tasks on the U.S.-side of the border.

President Trump aimed another warning at the caravan, stressing that “our military is waiting for you!”
