National Guard Coordinates Deployment to Border

In a presidential memorandum authorizing the request of deployment of Guards to the border, Trump says US security is "imperiled by a drastic surge of illegal activity", in particular drug trafficking by gangs and unlawful immigration. As governor, Brown serves as commander in chief of the state's military forces, a role that gives her sole responsibility for mobilizing and deploying the state's National Guard. A Democrat, Brown is the nation's first and only out bisexual governor.

"There's been no outreach by the President or federal officials, and I have no intention of allowing Oregon's guard troops to be used to district from his troubles in Washington", she added. If the administration determines that more troops are needed, "we'll make that decision at that time".

It is not the firm time troops have been sent to the US' southern border. Texas, Arizona and New Mexico appear to support the plan, the AP reported.

Arizona's Gov. Doug Ducey responded on Twitter that his state "welcomes this enhanced security", and that he appreciated the opportunity to discuss the plan with Nielsen as well as Abbott, Martinez and California's Gov.

Before the statement by Mattis and Nielsen, the state of Texas had already announced the "immediate" deployment of 250 soldiers on its border section by order of its governor, Greg Abbott.

Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) said Thursday that the California governor, who has previously accused the Trump administration of "basically going to war" with his state over immigration policy, could say no to the deployment request.

Marine Lt. Gen. Kenneth F. McKenzie told reporters at the Pentagon Thursday that it has not yet been determined how many, if any, of the National Guard troops participating in the border security operation will be armed.

"We all sympathize with migrants fleeing poverty and crime, but the answer is not to open the borders", Vaughn said.

Having served in the military for 21 years himself, Gordon said this option would keep some of our troops in the United States instead of overseas.

'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'.

The urgency to increase manpower on the southern border follows a sharp uptick in illegal border crossings last month. Around 30,000 Guard members eventually participated, according to a 2008 National Guard analysis, including more than 1,000 each from Kentucky, North Carolina and SC.

What Trump fails to realize, according to Newsweek, is that the president can not authorize the active military to carry out exercises on US soil without approval from Congress.

Bush sent troops back from June 2006 to July 2008, with guard members performing support duties aimed at freeing up federal agents from routine non-enforcement tasks so they could focus on border security.

It remains to be seen, the level of collaboration of the fourth state that shares the border with Mexico: California, whose Democratic leaders have opposed the majority of Trump's immigration measures to date.

Sending the National Guard to US-Mexico border is completely irresponsible.
