It disappeared with the pre-election middle class tax cut and infrastructure week. Thanks Obama!

They were a week or two late getting to the border before the midterms. The media gave amazing amounts of attn thinking it would culminate with the caravan at the border a few days ahead of the election. When they 700 miles out two days before the election the media clearly dropped all coverage.

Actually, it was Fox News and Trump and right wing web sites pushing the caravan. 

Election over, Fox, Trump and the right wing doesn't care anymore.

Stop making up crap ..

Actual journalists.. the kind you eschew.. never once suggested that those refugees were a week of two from the border.  In fact they regularly mentioned that they were some 1000 miles away at the time. 

It was entirely the fake reports from Trump and Fox that suggested that invading hordes were about to storm the border any moment.  Once Trump and Fox saw that people weren't buying the notion of imminent danger THEY dropped the ridiculous story.. 

Why do you lie so much?

We saw interviews of angry "migrants" in the "caravan" who said they were promised buses would be waiting for them when they reached the Mexican State of Veracruz.  The buses were all ready to roll, but the President of Mexico told  the governor of Veracruz not to provide the buses and he complied!  President Trump was very pleased with Mexico's assistance.  (no doubt there was some arm twisting to gain compliance)

Oh...  All of the "interviews" you saw were on Fox News...  Right?  Aren't they still on the way?

Department of Defense drops 'Operation Faithful Patriot' title from military border mission

The U.S. military mission at the Mexican border will no longer be called "Operation Faithful Patriot," according to officials.

The formerly named "Operation Faithful Patriot" is a deployment of nearly 5,200 troops, who joined 2,000 troops already stationed at the U.S.-Mexico border.




Pentagon spokesman Lt. Col. Jamie Davis said in a statement on Wednesday that while the Defense Department was dropping the name, the operation was still named and still ongoing.

Davis said the operation will now be referred to as "border support."

I suspect it won't be long before the troops get reassigned elsewhere...
