Operation Guardian is underway with 225 Guardsmen deployed to the border

Operation Guardian is underway with 225 Guardsmen deployed to the border

A very powerful dedication comes from Texas, the place Gov. Greg Abbott suggested San Antonio radio station KTSA that he would add about 300 troops each week until the complete amount reaches not lower than 1,000 troops.

A Defense Department memo said the National Guard members will not perform law enforcement functions or "interact with migrants or other persons detained" without Mattis's approval. The caravan had sparked furious criticism from Trump, adopted days later by his Nationwide Guard border security deployment plan.

There is no end date for the deployment, Abbott said: "We may be in this for the long haul".

The smaller group of 113 Guardsmen will "provide support to federal, state, county, tribal and local law enforcement agencies in stopping illicit activity including the flow of trafficked people, criminals, narcotics, weapons, and ammunition trafficked in the state", a second press release said.

Brown has repeatedly fought with Trump over immigration policy. 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 USA authorities picks up the value. In this case, Arizona National Guardsmen will stay under Governor Ducey's command but the Federal government will cover the costs. The state's National Guard in a statement later that 113 members would follow the initial deployment of 225.

Susana Martinez's office said that more than 80 troops would deploy later this week. Organizers said they never meant to go to the US border.

The Arivaca area rancher says that in recent months she's seen an increase in the number of undocumented immigrants coming across her land.

Grijalva said deploying troops send the wrong message to Mexico and to America.

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.

In California, Brown's spokesman, Evan Westrup, said Monday that state officials are still reviewing Trump's troop request.

New Mexico's Republican governor says her state will participate as well.

The Republican Ducey in a tweet Monday said more of the state's Guard members will be deployed on Tuesday.

Those duties will include "air support, reconnaissance support, operational support, construction of border infrastructure, and logistical support". It's now unclear where along Arizona's 370-mile border the troops will be stationed.

Mr 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.
