Local soldier discusses possible deployment to US-Mexico border

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

Jerry Brown says his state will accept federal funding to deploy National Guard troops to the Mexican border - with lots of strings attached.

The Governor made sure to add these conditions, "But let's be crystal clear on the scope of this mission".

The Senate said that the 400 wouldbe in addition to 250 already involved in the program, including fifty five members stationed in the us's southern border. Doug Ducey said 225 members of the state National Guard are heading to the border with Mexico to help the Border Patrol and other federal agencies that help secure the border.

The only holdout border state was California, led by Democratic Gov. On Saturday, Mattis signed an order to send up to 4,000 Guard troops to the border, but barred them from interacting with migrants detained by the Border Patrol in most circumstances. It will not be a assignment to locate women and children or detain persons escaping violence and trying a better existence.

Some Guard members is perhaps armed in the event that they're positioned in potential hazard, Abbott talked about, together with he wished to downplay speculation that "our Nationwide Guard is displaying up with military bayonets making an attempt to sort out anybody that's coming all through the border, on account of that is not their place". "Working closely with the border governors, the Department of Homeland Security identified security vulnerabilities that could be addressed by the National Guard", they said. President George W. Bush sent 6,000 in 2006.

It's unclear what operations or missions troops will perform along the border that might require them to carry weapons.

And the governor insisted in his letter that Trump's public pronouncements on border threats were misguided - pointing to statistics that show the number of detained immigrants in California is at its lowest point in almost 50 years. U.S. Customs and Border Protection however says apprehensions in the last six months fell by about 34,000 from the same period last fiscal year.

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