Texas, Arizona hike number of troops heading to border

As Texas and Arizona follow President Donald Trump's vision to step up security at the U.S. -Mexico border, California has yet to indicate its plans on mobilizing National Guard troops.

New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez's office talked about that larger than 80 troops would deploy later this week. On Friday, Defense Secretary James Mattis signed a memo approving U.S. Department of Defense funding through September for up to 4,000 troops along the border.

He said that based on his conversations with President Trump and other officials, there's no end date on the deployment.

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.

Arizona, Texas, and New Mexico are all led by Republican governors. Governor Doug Ducey says that is the name for the plan to deploy National Guardsmen to supplement the Border Patrol. SC despatched troops to the border all through Operation Soar Start, the border deployment ordered by Bush in 2006.

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

In the attempt to lift the bar, the knees may bend, and the legs may split, but no other part of the body may touch the ground. When the movement is complete, the competitor must remain absolutely motionless until the referees' decision is made.

"It will make a difference because I psychologically if the people that want to cross think that it's going to be harder, then they are going to take more time to think about it and if it's really worth it", said the rancher.

Trump had said on Thursday that the final deployment would range from 2,000 to 4,000 troops, and he would "probably" keep many personnel on the border until his promised border wall is built.

The department said the troops would not carry out law enforcement activities without the defense secretary's approval and would be armed only in "circumstances that might require self-defense".

Governor Doug Ducey said on Twitter that "additional members" would be deployed on Tuesday, without providing details.

The troops have been barred from interacting with migrants or any people that Border Patrol agents detain. 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. Evan Westrup, a spokesman for Brown, suggested the Related Press Monday that state officers are nonetheless reviewing Trump's troop request.

Apprehensions are still well below their historical trends during the terms of former presidents George W Bush and Barack Obama, both of whom also deployed the Guard to the border.
