More National Guard Troops Heading to Texas-Mexico Border

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

The Republican governors of three states alongside the U.S. -Mexico border pledged a whole of 1,600 Nationwide Guard troops to the frontier Monday - close to half the utmost amount President Trump requested to help crack down on illegal immigration and smuggling. Governor Doug Ducey says that is the name for the plan to deploy National Guardsmen to supplement the Border Patrol.

The original announcement that Arizona troops would be deployed came after Texas announced on Friday it would send 250 National Guard troops to its border with Mexico.

Doug Ducey met with border sheriffs about Monday's deployment of National Guard troops to the US border with Mexico.

The National Guard is officially a state militia that can be called into Federal service.

Last week, President Donald Trump said, "Until we can have a wall and proper security, we're going to be guarding our border with the military". "You current me any one who's for drug cartels or human trafficking or this ammunition that's coming over a wide-open and unprotected border proper right here".

New Mexico has not yet deployed any National Guard members to the U.S. -Mexico border in response to President Donald Trump's call to use troops to fight illegal immigration and drug trafficking.

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

Doug Ducey, a Republican, was present to send 225 troops on Monday. Hull says the troops could help with air support, surveillance and repairs of infrastructure along the border so that Border Patrol agents have more time to enforce immigration law.

After plunging at the start of Trump's presidency, the numbers of migrants apprehended at the southwest border have started to rise in line with historical trends.

California National Guard spokesman Lt. Col. Tom Keegan said last week that any request will be "promptly reviewed to determine how best we can assist our federal partners". The caravan had sparked furious criticism from Trump, adopted days later by his Nationwide Guard border security deployment plan.

The National Guard has previously been deployed to help patrol the southern border, including in 2010 under former president Barack Obama, and from 2006-2008 under George W. Bush.

South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster, a Republican, provided to ship members of his state's Guard as correctly.

In Mexico City, a caravan of Central American migrants that had been heading north stopped in the Mexican capital.

Joel Villarreal, the mayor of Rio Grande City in Texas, said he did not agree with what he characterized as "the militarization of the border".
