(CNN) - Having active duty troops on the border is getting more expensive.

Two U.S. defense officials say the price tag is expected to be $132 million by the end of the month.

That's $10 million more than a previous estimate that was revised after an internal review by the department of defense.

This new total has already been given to Congress.

The officials also say the deployment of national guard and operation guardian support is expected to cost $308 million by the end of the fiscal year 2019.
