Trump immigration: Texas sends National Guard to Mexico border

07 April, 2018, 14:46 | Author: Chad Mckenzie
  • President Donald Trump is expected to sign an order on Wednesday

The Texas National Guard says it is preparing to deploy to the U.S. -Mexico border in response to a call from President Donald Trump.

Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds said she would be willing to deploy Iowa National Guard soldiers to help fulfill President Trump's order to send the National Guard to the Mexican border.

Texas has started sending troops to the U.S. -Mexico border, with 250 members of the National Guard expected to deploy within the next 72 hours.

The Arizona National guard says a team of planners has been activated to coordinate deployment of 150 Guard troops to the U.S. -Mexico border.

Congress has largely refused to fund Trump's full request for the wall.

Arizona governor Doug Ducey said about 150 Guard members would deploy next week. Opponents may not be able to prevent the president from calling on their state National Guard troops if Trump employs a federal law. The GOP governors of Arizona, New Mexico and Texas also back the plan.

"It is imperative that this administration sit down with leaders in Congress on both sides of the aisle who want real solutions to our immigration challenges, rather than using political ploys to fire up President Trump's base and distract from growing controversy", Carper said.

In December, US Border Patrol announced arrests at the southern border had fallen to their lowest level since 1971, apparently indicating that fewer people were attempting the crossing.

DHS and White House officials have also not provided details on what the duties of the troops will be, especially considering that Pentagon regulations prohibit National Guard troops from searching vehicles, or pursuing and arresting anyone.

Texas made a similar announcement Friday.

Democratic Gov. Kate Brown of OR said she would not send troops if asked because she is "deeply troubled by Trump's plan to militarize our border".

Gov. Doug Ducey tweeted Friday that his office was working with the Department of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security on the deployment. If the administration determines that more troops are needed, "we'll make that decision at that time".

According to the complaint, the accused, barged into the girl's house when she was alone and tried to rape her. The victim had met Cinthia through social media, inviting her to her home with the offer of some baby clothes.

Sandoval's spokeswoman, Mary-Sarah Kinner, said Friday in an email to The Associated Press that the Trump administration has not contacted the Republican governor's office about the idea.

But he says North Dakota supports those states and will help if asked.

Congressional appropriators also noted that the agency's request for more Border Patrol agents "was not supported by any analysis of workload and capability gaps" that would allow them to assess whether the agents were even necessary.

However, if a National Guard mission were ordered under Title 32, the protocol would be different.

Bush announced the deployment in Yuma, as part of a larger immigration reform plan. The 2018 government spending bill said that CBP expects to lose more agents than it will hire this year, and accounted for that in its funding.

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey, a Republican, said Friday that she will consult with the head of the Alabama Guard to see what resources are available.

"Tonight there are National Guard troops moving in support of the border security mission", said Dana White, the Pentagon's chief spokesperson, in a statement Friday night.
