  • National Guard troops headed for border Friday night

Kate Brown, no relation to Jerry, isn't alone in her criticism of Trump's plan. What's more, sending the National Guard would be an option - but since National Guard troops are under the command of their states' governors, not the president himself, it would be up to each state's governor to command troops to the border.

President Donald Trump's plan to deploy National Guard troops to the Mexican border has drawn resistance from several Democratic governors and Nevada's Republican governor. "Governors have very little control over whether or not the president can call the National Guard in those circumstances".

- National Guard contingents in USA states bordering Mexico awaited guidance Thursday on the what duties they'll be assigned to help fight illegal immigration and drug smuggling along the border, and a Pentagon official said it has not yet been determined whether the troops will be armed.

A spokeswoman for the Pentagon, Dana White, said Thursday: "These National Guard members will act in support of Border Patrol agents who are performing law enforcement duties".

"We already have a fence that was established during the Bush administration that runs through the city", he said. Gen. Hugo Salazar, then-head of the Arizona National Guard, in 2011. Christian Patterson says about 3,500 MS soldiers are now training in Texas for deployment later this year to the Middle East.

China, Vanuatu deny military base plan
According to him, Vanuatu is a non-aligned country and is not interested in militarisation or hosting any sort of military base. The Sydney Morning Herald said China had approached the Pacific nation about the possibility.

And it's still too early to determine how much the operation will cost, but the two previous border operations cost $1.3 billion - $1.2 billion for Operation Jump Start in 2006-2008 and $110 million for Operation Phalanx in 2010. It came after several days in which the president stewed over the lack of congressional funding to build his promised border wall and suffered criticism from some of his nationalist allies for failure to win more money for the project.

'As Commander of Oregon's Guard, I'm deeply troubled by Trump's plan to militarize our border'.

Asked how many Guard troops the Trump administration would put on the border, he replied: 'As many as it takes'.

But governors, whose duties include commanding their states' Guard units, can say no.

A statement issued Friday by Ivey's office cites the need not to impede Guard missions in the state.

Raikkonen later issued a team statement saying: "What happened to our guy Francesco today at the pit-stop is very unfortunate". Moments later, having left his pit, Raikkonen was told to stop, the Finn subsequently climbing from his auto and retiring.

"The president is frustrated" over continued illegal immigration, Nielsen said, adding, "He has been very clear that he wants to secure our border".

"We'd like to stop it before the numbers get even bigger", she said.

She says Sandoval doesn't believe the current proposal would be "an appropriate use" of the Nevada Guard.

The Republican governors of border states Arizona, New Mexico and Texas back the deployment. Vaughan wrote. "Reportedly, last year's caravan succeeded in gaining entry for more than 100 migrants whose asylum claims are now pending in USA immigration courts, so their expectations are not unreasonable". -Mexican border if asked. "There's nothing that I see right now happening on the U.S. -Mexico border that would constitute an insurrection", said retired Adm. James Winnefeld, who was vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff under President Barack Obama, told CBS News this week, adding, "If the president tried to use military forces in an inappropriate way... he would be violating federal law".

Brown's statement comes after Trump announced Tuesday that the US military will be used to guard the US-Mexico border.
