Washington: US President Donald Trump is expected to grant a new authority to American troops on the Southwest border with Mexico to protect border personnel from migrants if they engage in violence, according to defence officials. Currently, troops do not have any authorities that would allow them to intervene if the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) personnel came under attack unless they need to act in their own self-defence. The officials told CNN on Monday that the authority would also allow protection of federal property. There are 5,800 to 5,900 troops assigned to the border mission. (IANS)
