WESLACO – More troops are heading to the border.

The approval for 320 more troops came following a new report from U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

These border assignments will cost taxpayers more than $7 million.

Authorities say more migrants crossed the border illegally in March compared to any other month within the last decade.

A migrant caravan, which includes less than 300 people, left from Honduras Tuesday to head to the U.S.
