They'd be the primary of an anticipated 250 Guard members from New Mexico to serve on the border.

New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez told The Hill her state would help, but did not announce what date troops would be deployed. 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 US authorities picks up the value. "But it certainly is about border security". The Texas governor explained that his contribution will be armed.

The only holdout border state was California, led by Democratic Governor Jerry Brown, who has not announced whether troops from his state's National Guard will participate and has repeatedly fought with Mr Trump over immigration policy.

Gov Henry McMaster said no specifics about how many troops would be sent or how long they would stay were discussed on his call Monday afternoon to fellow Republican and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott.

"I don't think it's timely and here I don't think it's necessary but it's just, you know the President trying to bully Congress to take care of a wall he wants and this is just another one of the projects he has", Estrada said.

Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis last week signed an order for "up to 4,000 National Guard personnel" to support the Department of Homeland Security's southern border security mission through to the end of September, the Defense Department said.

Texas and Arizona on Monday increased the number of National Guard troops they're sending to the U.S. -Mexico border, The Associated Press reported on Monday.

The statement says the troops will help law enforcement agencies stem "the flow of trafficked people, criminals, narcotics, weapons, and ammunition trafficked in the state". 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.

Governor Doug Ducey said on Twitter that "additional members" would be deployed on Tuesday, without providing details. California National Guard spokesman Lt. Col. Tom Keegan said last week that the request would be "promptly reviewed to determine how best we can assist our federal partners".

Mr Trump and 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.

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.
