Head of National guard says hundreds of troops are heading to southwest U.S. border immediately

The Texas National Guard has also deployed 150 members for the border security mission announced by Trump earlier last week. In a press launch, the Guard talked about the troops will help frequent laws enforcement stem "the motion of trafficked people, criminals, narcotics, weapons, and ammunition trafficked inside the state". SC despatched troops to the border all through Operation Soar Start, the border deployment ordered by Bush in 2006.

Doug Ducey, a Republican, was present to send 225 troops on Monday. The governor met with New Mexico National Guard leaders over the weekend to determine deployment plans and duty assignments, The Washington Post reported.

According to ABC News, citing an Arizona National Guard statement, the additional 113 troops, which brings the total number deployed to 338, will support federal and local law enforcement agencies to stop illicit trafficking in drugs, humans, and arms, among other crimes.

Brown has repeatedly fought with Trump over immigration protection.

"We may be in this for the long haul", he said. It's not clear when they will head to the border. Organizers talked about they not at all meant to go to the US border.

New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez's office said that more than 80 troops would deploy later this week.

Despite drops in apprehensions of undocumented immigrants over time, Ducey said March saw a surge of unauthorized border crossings and illegal activity.

California has not decided whether to send National Guard members to the border with Mexico to help President Donald Trump's deployment of troops to fight illegal immigration and drug trafficking. Jerry Brown's spokesman Evan Westrup.

The Republican governors of Arizona and Texas have already deployed troops.

Ducey spoke Monday as he saw off guard members at the Papago Park Military Reservation in Phoenix.

"These Guard troops are there to support the Border Patrol". They will only serve as an extra set of eyes patrolling the border and assisting law enforcement. Under the federal laws Trump invoked in his proclamation calling for Nationwide Guard troops, governors who ship troops retain command and administration over their state's Guard members and the US authorities picks up the value.

"The state of Arizona must not be used as a political pawn that will leave visitors questioning the safety of our state", he said in his letter to Ducey. It's now unclear where along Arizona's 370-mile border the troops will be stationed.

Trump has said he wants to use the military at the border until progress is made on his proposed border wall, which has mostly stalled in Congress. Defence Secretary James Mattis last Friday approved paying for up to 4,000 National Guard personnel from the Pentagon budget through the end of September.
