SC governor offers to send troops for border to Texas

SC governor offers to send troops for border to Texas

U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen will head to New Mexico for an update on President Donald Trump's proposed border wall.

President Trump last week ordered National Guard troops to patrol the USA border with Mexico.

"Let's be clear on the scope of this mission", the Democrat Brown wrote in a letter to the Trump administration. In the meantime, something had to be done to convince his constituency that he was serious in wanting to stop migrants from across the border from Mexico coming into the USA.

Instead, California's national guard troops will combat transnational drug crime, firearms smuggling, and human trafficking.

The one holdout border state is California, led by Democratic Gov.

Under the federal law Trump invoked in his proclamation calling for National Guard troops, governors who send troops retain command and control over their state's Guard members and the USA government picks up the cost.

So far, only Texas, Arizona, and New Mexico have agreed to send guardsmen, after President Trump called for a military response to what he calls "lawlessness" at the border.

Seeking refuge from persecution and violence in search of a peaceful life "is not a crime", the bishops added. Texas Governor Greg Abbott has said that some of the troops going to the Texas border will be armed.

The Republican on Tuesday reiterated plans to put more than 1,000 National Guard members into action. Earlier under both George Bush and Obama, troops were deployed under Title 32.

Pentagon spokeswoman Dana W. White told reporters Thursday that planners are looking at sending National Guard units that can assist with aviation, engineering, surveillance, communications, vehicle maintenance and logistics support.

On Saturday, five planners from the National Guard arrived in the Laredo border patrol sector, where they heard requests and operational input from Burwell and his staff.

"I don't think this is a partisan issue or an identity issue", he said. The synthetic drug fentanyl, which is exponentially more powerful and deadly even than heroin, also comes into the U.S.at the Mexican border, though too much of it still is delivered by the U.S. Postal Service when it is shipped from China.
