Governor Offers to Send Troops to Border

Texan officials said about 300 troops would be dispatched by the state weekly until the complement of the National Guard reaches at least 1,000

Trump has been frustrated that the Republican-led Congress has refused to fully fund his plan to build a border wall.

South Carolina's governor is offering to send National Guard troops to Texas help fight illegal immigration and drug trafficking along the Mexican border.

Meanwhile, the first members of the National Guard in Texas have already made their way to the U.S-Mexico border.

The National Guard can report violations, but the law lets only police act on them.

The only holdout border state was California, led by Democratic Gov.

Governor Jerry Brown today responded to the federal government's request for an additional 400 California National Guard troops, but not without certain stipulations.

Simmons finished the first half with 13 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists. "They've been playing some good ball". The Cavaliers were playing back-to-back having beaten the Washington Wizards in Cleveland 119-115 Thursday.

The Republican governors of Texas, Arizona and New Mexico on Monday committed 1,600 Guard members to the border, giving President Donald Trump numerous troops he requested to fight what he's called a crisis of migrant crossings and crime. It will not be a assignment to locate women and children or detain persons escaping violence and trying a better existence.

Mattis signed a memo on Friday that authorized the federal government to fund up to 4,000 National Guard troops for the border mission through September.

So far, 1,600 members will be deployed there giving the president numerous troops he requested to fight what he calls a migrant crossing crisis.

Other border states are also deploying National Guard troops.

In a statement, DHS spokeswoman Katie Waldman said Secretary Nielsen "is pleased to have the support of all four border governors to help secure our southwest border". Overall immigrant apprehensions on the border last year were as low as they've been in almost 50 years (and 85 percent of the apprehensions occurred outside of California). Only Border Patrol agents and other law-enforcement officers may apprehend drug runners and people attempting to enter the US illegally.

"And I have got to tell you, the people of Texas are very appreciative", Abbott said on "Fox & Friends" Monday.
