Border states pledge 1600 troops for Trump's border fight

Kate Brown the Democratic governor of Oregon said Wednesday that she'll refuse to comply with any Trump administration request for National Guard troops to patrol the nation's southern border

Later in the day, the Arizona National Guard announced an additional 113 troops would deploy on Tuesday.

If 4,000 troops were deployed, that would be about double the current United States military presence in Syria and about half as many as the number of USA troops in Iraq.

California has not decided whether or not to send its National Guard troops to support border control.

The Republican Doug Ducey made the comments Monday after he saw off some of the 250 troops that Arizona is sending in response to President Donald Trump's plan to send up to 4,000 troops to the border.

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey told a group of soldiers preparing to deploy from a Phoenix military base that their "mission is about providing manpower and resources" to support agencies on the border and denied that there was a political motive.

"We want to downplay any notion that would be misinformed that our National Guard are showing up with military bayonets, trying to take on anybody who's coming across the border because that is not their role", the governor explained while appearing on the station's Trey Ware Morning Show.

But the state's National guard did not return phone and email messages Monday seeking comment on how many have arrived.

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

The images shared by the Texas Military Department which includes Guard branches showed members dressed in military fatigues shaking hands with USA border agents.

Under federal law Mr Trump invoked in his proclamation calling for National Guard troops. Organizers talked about they not at all meant to go to the US border.

The group didn't make it into the USA, but this is the type of activity the president wants to stop by deploying the National Guard to the border.

Lacey and Jim Larkin, have said that Backpage notifies law enforcement authorities whenever it becomes aware of illegal activity. The website, criticized as the biggest prostitution website in the world, is seized by the Federal Bureau of Investigation .

El Paso Sector Chief Patrol Agent Aaron Hull says those troops are nowhere near deploying yet.

Trump authorized the National Guard with governors' approval to enhance us border patrol security on Wednesday.

That's according to Gov.

Brown is a Democrat and hasn't spoken publicly about the request. Evan Westrup, a spokesman for Brown, suggested the Related Press Monday that state officers are nonetheless reviewing Trump's troop request. The Texas governor explained that his contribution will be armed.

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

Gov. Doug Ducey addressed part of the force at Papago Park Military Reservation.

South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster, a Republican, offered to send members of his state's Guard as well.

No details were immediately announced on what the Arizona troops would do at the border.

Joshua Wilson, vice president of the National Border Patrol Council, said those facts are wrong.

Trump said last week that he would be sending up to 4,000 troops to the southern border until his proposed border wall was built.
