Abbott said he is planning to send at least 1,000 troops to the border and they could be there for months or years, meaning the SC troops could help rotate other National Guard members out, Livingston said.

New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez told The Hill her state would help, but did not announce what date troops would be deployed. They will only serve as an extra set of eyes patrolling the border and assisting law enforcement.

Arizona, Texas, and New Mexico are all led by Republican governors. Jerry Brown and has not made a public commitment to sending troops from his state's National Guard. He plans to work with federal officials to decide how long the National Guard stays at the border.

Trump said last week he wants to send 2,000 to 4,000 National Guard members to the border, issuing a proclamation citing "the lawlessness that continues at our southern border". SC despatched troops to the border all through Operation Soar Start, the border deployment ordered by Bush in 2006.

Another 113 Guardsmen will follow Tuesday.

Ducey told reporters later that the deployments are needed to stop a surge of border crossings since March and accused the US government of previously ignoring the border "for almost a decade".

A very powerful dedication comes from Texas, the place Gov. Greg Abbott suggested San Antonio radio station KTSA that he would add about 300 troops each week until the complete amount reaches not lower than 1,000 troops. He added that he wanted to "downplay any notion" that "our National Guard is showing up with military bayonets trying to take on anybody that's coming across the border, because that is not their role".

"I work on the border every single day and we make arrests every single day", said Wilson, one of the leading voices of the union representing the Border Patrol.




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.

On Friday, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis signed a memo that authorized the federal government to pay for the potential deployment of up to 4,000 National Guard troops for the border mission through September.

It said "arming will be limited to circumstances that might require self-defense" but did not further define that.

Doug Ducey speaks to Arizona National Guard soldiers prior to their deployment to the Mexico border at the Papago Park Military Reservation, Monday, April 9, 2018, in Phoenix.

The New Mexico Guard members could help with air support, surveillance and infrastructure repairs, Hull said.

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". Evan Westrup, a spokesman for Brown, suggested the Related Press Monday that state officers are nonetheless reviewing Trump's troop request.

Administration officers have talked about that rising numbers of people being caught on the southern border, whereas in keeping with seasonal traits now, require an instantaneous response.
