Operation Guardian is underway with 225 Guardsmen deployed to the border

Arizona sending 225 troops to Mexico border, more heading soon

Ducey said on Twitter that additional National Guard members would be deployed Tuesday.

"This (deployment) isn't specifically around a border wall", Ducey said.

Trump's call for sending troops to the border came after he was heavily criticized by his supporters for passing a federal budget that only allocated $1.6 billion for border security.

New Mexico's governor has said her state would take part in the operation, but no announcement has been made on deployment. On Monday, Abbott told San Antonio radio station KTSA that Texas will significantly ramp up its commitment to President Trump's call over the next several weeks.

Ducey says the Arizona troops' mission is "about providing manpower and resources to support federal, state, county, tribal and local law enforcement agencies in stopping the flow of criminals, narcotics, weapons and ammunition that is being trafficked into our state".

The National Guard troops are expected to help Border Patrol lower the number of people and contraband entering the US through the southern border.

Over the weekend Aghdam's family reported her missing to police when she disappeared and stopped answering her phone. Aghdam was known for protesting against animal cruelty and supporting a vegan lifestyle, relatives said.

There is not a end date for the deployment, Abbott talked about: "We may be on this for the prolonged haul". "You show me somebody who is for drug cartels or human trafficking or this ammunition that's coming over a wide-open and unprotected border here".

El Paso Sector Chief Patrol Agent Aaron Hull says troops are nowhere near deploying yet.

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

The New Mexico Guard members could help with air support, surveillance and infrastructure repairs, Hull said.

Officials planned to deploy 225 Arizona National Guard troops from Phoenix on Monday.

As Texas and Arizona follow President Donald Trump's vision to step up security at the U.S. -Mexico border, California has yet to indicate its plans on mobilizing National Guard troops.

The Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs said two of those injured were Dutch, one of whom was in a critical condition. Their names weren't given, as is customary in Germany. "The perpetrator killed himself in the vehicle", Bode added.

Mr Brown's spokesman, Evan Westrup, said California officials still were reviewing Mr Trump's troop request.

Administration officers have talked about that rising numbers of people being caught on the southern border, whereas in keeping with seasonal traits now, require an instantaneous response.

South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster, a Republican, offered to send members of his state's Guard as well.

The National Guard has previously been deployed to help patrol the southern border, including in 2010 under former president Barack Obama, and from 2006-2008 under George W. Bush.

Joel Villarreal, the mayor of Rio Grande City in Texas, said he did not agree with what he characterized as "the militarization of the border".
