SC governor offers to send troops for border to Texas

SC governor offers to send troops for border to Texas

Trump has been frustrated that the Republican-led Congress has refused to fully fund his plan to build a border wall.

Lt. Gen. Kenneth F. McKenzie, Jr., the director of the Pentagon's Joint Staff, said the military's preference was for the troops to be armed for self-protection, as National Guard units used along the border have been in the past.

Some South Carolina members of the National Guard could be headed for border duty.

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

In a letter to federal authorities, Brown said the National Guard troops would be added "statewide", so it was unclear exactly how many of those 400 troops would actually be sent to the border.

The Congress chief then headed for the home of Srinivas, a sweeper with the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), where he had breakfast with the family.

Mattis signed a memo on Friday that authorized the federal government to fund up to 4,000 National Guard troops for the border mission through September.

California deployed troops to the border under former Presidents George W. Bush in 2006 and Barack Obama in 2010. It will not be a mission to round up women and children or detain people escaping violence and seeking a better life. He said most of the southwest border sectors will receive National Guard support. Trump had proposed some 4000 troops to augment the border force already guarding the border.

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.

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. Brown added that "there is no massive wave of migrants pouring into California", saying that overall, immigration apprehensions on the border last year were as low as they've been in almost 50 years.

I look forward to working with you on this important effort. U.S. Customs and Border Protection however says apprehensions in the last six months fell by about 34,000 from the same period last fiscal year.
