Trump to grant troops authority to protect border personnel from violence: report

ㅤ"President Trump is expected to give troops on the border the authority to protect Customs and Border Protection (CBP) personnel if they are attacked by migrants crossing into the country, CNN reported Monday, citing three U.S. officials.
ㅤCurrently, the troops at the border don’t have the authority to intervene if CBP personnel were to be attacked, CNN noted. The directive from Trump, which reportedly could be announced as soon as Monday night, will stipulate that any use of force by the troops must be ‘proportional.’"
