Arizona deploys first 225 National Guard members to Mexico border

A U.S. Customs and Border Protection K-9 unit checks vehicles crossing into the United States from Mexico

After the deployment was approved by Ducey, the National Guard said 225 troops will be deployed to the border Tuesday and another 113 on Wednesday. The troops were sent to the town of Marana, northwest of Tucson, according to Ducey's spokesperson, Patrick Ptak.

"We're glad that they are coming", said one rancher who didn't want to be identified.

On their way to the border, Guardsmen will pass through a National Guard Base at Pinal Air Park just north of Marana.

The group didn't make it into the US, but this is the type of activity the president wants to stop by deploying the National Guard to the border. On Monday, Abbott told San Antonio radio station KTSA that Texas will significantly ramp up its commitment to President Trump's call over the next several weeks.

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".

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. 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. "You show me somebody who is for drug cartels or human trafficking or this ammunition that's coming over a wide-open and unprotected border here".

Also on Friday, the Texas Army National Guard said 250 guardsmen would be deployed to the U.S. -Mexico border in the following 72 hours.

New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez's office said it would be deploying 250 guardsmen, including 80 later this week.

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

Administration officials have said that rising numbers of people being caught at the southern border, while in line with seasonal trends in recent years, require an immediate response.

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

Apprehensions are nonetheless correctly beneath their historic traits all through the phrases of former presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama, every of whom moreover deployed the Guard to the border.
