Pentagon approves 4000 national guard troops for US-Mexico border

National Guard troops headed for border Friday night Governors could be powerless to deny Trump troop request

"We will answer the call", Burgum said.

The government could keep a larger number in detention, but that would be extremely expensive.

"I'm always amused that the way to increase the budget is by pleading incompetence", he added.

Governors have some leeway to say no to presidents, but depending on which federal law Trump uses to order the deployment, the matter could be out of the governors' hands.

"We are the eyes and ears, mainly".

Lt. Col. Travis Walters, Texas Military Department state public affairs officer, told CNN the state is "awaiting additional guidance from the Department of Defense and President regarding the border". Gen. Hugo Salazar, then-head of the Arizona National Guard, in 2011.

While he cautions it's better for Trump to "request" that state's assist with their National Guard units politically, he says the President may play his "Trump" card. His proposal, announced Wednesday, was quickly greenlighted by three Republican governors: Greg Abbott of Texas, Doug Ducey of Arizona and Susana Martinez of New Mexico. Estimates put the price of the wall at around $20 billion, but a spending bill pushed through Congress allocates only $1.6 billion for the wall, and that money is earmarked for repairs to sections of the existing border fence, not new construction.

Border arrests this year are down almost 13 percent compared to last year, but according to the Department of Homeland Security March saw a big spike with more than 37,000 arrests. National Guard troops assisted in 11.7%.

Facebook to let research commission access proprietary user data
That was the giant loophole the British researcher legitimately used to access data but then unjustly sold to Cambridge Analytica. Associated Press reporters around the world have been surveying users, none of whom have reported seeing anything from Facebook .


Although Trump has suggested that his plan to send troops to the border is an exceptional move, past presidents ― including Barack Obama and George W. Bush ― also deployed the National Guard to the Mexican border during their time in office. The administration made it clear that the mission, named "Operation Phalanx", would be aimed at catching drug smugglers and not targeting migrants.

"Moving up to 500 #NationalGuard troops immediately on the SW border security mission".

"Until we can have a wall and proper security, we're going to be guarding our border with the military".

The governor of OR says she'll resist any attempt by Donald Trump to deploy her state's National Guard detachment to protect America's southern border, and California's governor appears poised to follow suit. "It was understood that this was something that was needed to mitigate fears on the U.S. side of the border".

Pentagon chief James Mattis and National Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen claim that "troops are deploying to support border security missions". "The Democrats stand in our way - they want people to pour into our country unchecked..."

Trump in recent days has been tweeting his frustrations about current immigration laws.

On Wednesday, the US President signed a memorandum to the Defense Department to support Homeland Security in securing the US-Mexican border with the assistance of the National Guard.

'I'd would like further conversations with him, ' she said, 'before I jump ahead of him and how he would like to secure his border'. "Every American should be outraged by this wasteful, damaging, and opportunistic use of taxpayer dollars".
