The troops President Donald Trump sent to the border ahead of the elections earlier this month will reportedly soon be leaving, in spite of continued flows of asylum-seekers and other migrants coming to the United States.
There are 5,800 to 5,900 troops assigned to the border mission.
Some of the troops sent to America's southern border with Mexico will start going home this week because the assignments for which they were deployed are complete.
Gastelum has appealed to the federal government for more assistance to cope with the influx - while more migrants continue to head to the U.S. -Mexico border.
Buchanan said troops are done with placing about 75 percent of the obstacles at the border that they planned to.
"Our end date right now is 15 December, and I've got no indications from anybody that we'll go beyond that", said Buchanan.
Still, the reduction in troop levels now ― after Trump largely stopped tweeting or talking about the caravans post-midterm elections, but while thousands of migrants are still en route to the USA ― is likely to bolster critics who said the deployment was more about pre-election fear-mongering than responding to a need.

Anti-Pelosi Democrats Sign Letter Committing to Voting Against Her for Speaker
Sixteen votes against Pelosi might block her from getting the 218 votes, a House majority, that she'd need to win the speakership. But it goes on to argue that voters showed they want change in the last election and that should include new Democratic leaders.
Trump's apparent move now to withdraw them also caused criticism.
Ornstein expressed disappointment that Jim Mattis, the defence secretary, had gone along with the plan. Trump said that up to 15,000 could be deployed.
A US Border Patrol officer stands in front of the border fence that divides the US and Mexico at Friendship Park on November 16, 2018 in San Diego, California. It is the busiest border crossing between the two countries, with about 110,000 people entering the USA every day in 40,000 vehicles.
Homeland Security officials say some 10,500 migrants are camped along the border and on Monday the country's busiest land border crossing had to be hardened with new razor wire and barriers to try to prevent what authorities feared would be a mass incursion, similar to the violent entrance the migrants into Mexico last month. The Department of Defense, however, said no.
She provided no further information or evidence for the claim and David Abud, a representative from Pueblos Sin Fronteras, the organisation coordinating the caravan, said: "Secretary Nielsen's false comments about the refugee exodus are a deliberate attempt to mislead the public and demonise refugees fleeing government sponsored violence and displacement". "Out!" referring to the caravan that arrived in the border city last week. Tijuana, itself a city of immigrants, was roiled by a demonstration on Sunday against the new arrivals, who have been lodged in a recreation centre near the border.
