Trump gets 1600 troops for Mexico border

Trump gets 1600 troops for Mexico border

Texas and Arizona on Monday increased the number of National Guard troops they're sending to the U.S. -Mexico border, The Associated Press reported on Monday.

National Guard troops were also sent to the border to assist by President George W. Bush in 2006 and President Barack Obama in 2010.

"I don't think this is a partisan issue or an identity issue", Ducey said. "For Arizona, it's all about public safety". The Arizona deployments were beginning Monday but Capt. Aaron Thatcher said it was unlikely all 225 would be at the border by the end of Monday.

Texas announced Friday that it would send at least 1,000 National Guard members, and helicopters took the first of them to the border.

Although Trump wants to bolster border security, it appears that illegal border crossings are down.

Members of the Arizona National Guard listen to instructions on April 9, 2018, at the Papago Park Military Reservation in Phoenix.

Isabel Garcia, the co-chair of the Tucson-based Coalición de Derechos Humanos, called the move "anti-human". He supports the deployment but is concerned Guardsmen will militarize the border.

But not all Arizonans are opposed to the measure.

"Somebody has to make a show of force to Mexico", Davis said.

The Republican governors of Arizona and Texas have already deployed troops.

He said between March 2016 and 2017, arrests at the border were up by 200 percent.

Doug Ducey, a Republican, was present to send them off on Monday.

"This mission is about providing manpower and resources to support federal, state, county, tribal and local law enforcement agencies in stopping the flow of criminals, narcotics, weapons and ammunition that is being trafficked into our state", Ducey said. "The Guard will provide air support, reconnaissance support, operational support, construction of border infrastructure and logistical support".

The National Guard will act as support for Border Patrol rather than taking a "law enforcement role", according to a statement from Customs and Border Protection.

Officials planned to deploy 225 Arizona National Guard troops from Phoenix on Monday.

On the same day, Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey (R) said the Arizona National Guard would send 338 troops to the southern border. This weekend, Mattis authorized deployment of 4,000 troops.

Trump authorized the National Guard with governors' approval to enhance US border patrol security on Wednesday.

New Mexico's Republican governor has said her state would take part in the operation but no announcement has been made on deployment.

It follows President Donald Trump's failure to get the US Congress or Mexico to fully fund his proposed wall along the border.

New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez's office said it would be deploying 250 guardsmen, including 80 later this week.
