Local soldier discusses possible deployment to US-Mexico border

Texan officials said about 300 troops would be dispatched by the state weekly until the complement of the National Guard reaches at least 1,000

"This will not be a mission to build a new wall". However, the governor said the additional troops will "supplement the staffing of its ongoing program to combat transnational crime".

Trump last week called for thousands of National Guard troops to be sent to the border to help fight illegal immigration.

"Let's be crystal clear on the scope of this mission", Brown wrote in a letter that accompanied the Memorandum of Agreement he submitted Wednesday to Defense Secretary James Mattis and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.

Second, they won't enforce immigration laws, make any immigration arrests, participate in any border wall construction, or be employed in a direct law enforcement role. Doug Ducey said 225 members of the state National Guard are heading to the border with Mexico to help the Border Patrol and other federal agencies that help secure the border.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott Announces Run for Senate
Anticipating Scott's entry into the race, Democrats have spent months readying their attacks on his two terms in Tallahassee. Over the last few years the governor has relentlessly traveled the state to promote businesses that are adding jobs.

The one holdout border state is California, led by Democratic Gov. "Illinois has not been requested to send troops".

Arizona recently deployed its first 225 troops to its border. It will not be a mission to round up women and children or detain people escaping violence and seeking a better life.

New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez's office talked about that larger than 80 troops would deploy later this week.

Former presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama both deployed National Guard soldiers to the southern border during their tenure.

According to Trillium Gift of Life Network (TGLN), every three days someone will die without one. She thinks the conversation around organ donations should begin in schools.

In an letter Brown sent to members of Trump'so administration, he mentioned the federal currency would help "the Guard to do what it works better", including fighting transnational drugs offense, firearm and drug smuggling and human trafficking.

A very powerful dedication comes from Texas, the place Gov. Greg Abbott suggested San Antonio radio station KTSA that he would add about 300 troops each week until the complete amount reaches not lower than 1,000 troops. "These National Guard members will act in support of Border Patrol agents who are performing law enforcement duties".

"The National Guard's efforts will include aviation, engineer, surveillance, communications, vehicle maintenance and logistics support", Chief Pentagon spokesperson Dana White said in a statement last week, according to ABC News.

But despite the sight of a caravan of migrants headed toward the United States, the U.S. Border Patrol says the number of people crossing illegally from Mexico is at its lowest point in nearly 50 years. Only Border Patrol agents and other law-enforcement officers may apprehend drug runners and people attempting to enter the US illegally.

RACE: Vettel holds on to beat Bottas in Bahrain
He had earlier told his team that everything was under control but that, he recognised later with a smile, was not the reality. The Finn had to settle for second place on the grid after having set a time that was just 0.143 seconds slower than Vettel's.

"I don't think this is a partisan issue or an identity issue", he said.
