Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan said Friday that he expects the Pentagon will soon send additional troops to the border, though the Defense Department (DOD) has yet to receive a formal request for such support.

“It shouldn’t come as a surprise that we’ll provide more support to the border,” Shanahan told reporters prior to meeting with German Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen at the Pentagon.

“Our support is very elastic, and given the deterioration there at the border, you would expect that we would provide more support,” he said.
