Troops On The Texas-Mexico Border; Reducing Dementia Risk With Exercise

California Gov. agrees to deploy National Guard troops, but with a twist California has agreed to deploy 400 National Guard troops at Trump's request

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

The governor of California agreed Wednesday to beef up the nationrsquo;s National Guard, declaring roughly 400 members wouldbe used according to an existing system to fight transnational offense.

That comes after President Donald Trump said last week he wants 2,000 to 4,000 National Guard members stationed along the entire 2,000-mile (3,200-kilometer) U.S. -Mexico Border.

"Let's be crystal clear on the scope of this mission", Brown wrote in the letter to Defense Secretary James Mattis and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.

A few troops were spotted on Monday along the Mexico-United States border in Roma.

Using the National Guard to do border security is very expensive.

Until Wednesday, California was the only border state that hadn't responded to Trump's request. It will not be a mission to round up women and children or detain people escaping violence and seeking a better life.




The federal government must agree to California's terms before the troops would be deployed.

Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, the union representing agents, said Guard units could help by freeing agents to do more patrolling to search for smugglers. Earlier under both George Bush and Obama, troops were deployed under Title 32. Jerry Brown. Some Guard troops already are deployed on the border for counter-drug operations.

On Saturday, five planners from the National Guard arrived in the Laredo border patrol sector, where they heard requests and operational input from Burwell and his staff.

But despite the sight of a caravan of migrants headed toward the United States, the U.S. Border Patrol says the number of people crossing illegally from Mexico is at its lowest point in nearly 50 years.

I look forward to working with you on this important effort.

Officials say the 20-mile (32-kilometer) stretch in a sprawling desert separating the USA from Mexico will be at least 18 feet (5.5 meters) tall.
