Texas will send more than 1,000 National Guard troops to the US-Mexico border, in response to President Donald Trump's call for the military deployment to the southern frontier, the state announced yesterday.

Ducey, who met with sheriffs Monday before addressing troops in the first wave of what he called Operation Guardian Shield, said state, local and federal governments need to work together do "what Washington has failed to do for too long - secure the southern border".

The continued militarization of the U.S./Mexico Border distorts the reality of life on the border; this is not a war zone but instead is comprised of many peaceful and law-abiding communities that are also generous in their response to human suffering.

The only holdout border state was California, led by Democratic Gov.

National Guard troops are normally commanded by governors.

Last week, the Texas National Guard activated 250 personnel to support the Department of Homeland Security missions and begin the planning for follow-on forces.

Former Texas Governor Rick Perry ordered 1,000 guardsmen to the border in July 2014 as a result of a large increase in border crossings that year by unaccompanied migrant children.

On Friday, Defense Secretary James Mattis approved paying for up to 4,000 troops along the border through the end of September.

Ducey said the deployments are not partisan.

That group of 150 individuals joined 100 Guardsmen, who had been working on a previous border-support mission.

California has not announced whether troops from the state's National Guard will take part.

President Donald trump said that he wants the military remained at the border until the construction of the wall.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott said in a statement on April 4 that he welcomed the Trump administration's announcement, and that Texas will "immediately" deploy guardsmen to the southwest border.

Trump administration officials have said immediate action is needed to deal with the increasing number of people caught at the border.

Videgaray said Pena Nieto will make a decision "in the context of the relationship with the United States, in view of the very public and notorious differences we have today with the United States".

The worldwide border cuts through Nogales, Sonora, Mexico, rear, and Nogales, Ariz., as seen Monday, April 9, 2018, from Nogales, Ariz.

His office says guard members will provide air, reconnaissance, operational and logistical support to border patrol agents.

New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez's office said that more than 80 troops would deploy later this week.

The Mexican Foreign Ministry has said it was assured by Nielsen that guardsmen would not be armed and would not be making arrests but would be acting in support roles only.
