Texas IMMEDIATELY Deploys Troops to US Border, Arizona Next Week

Texas became the first state on Friday to deploy National Guard troops to the southern border of the United States in response to President Donald Trump’s call for troops to fight drug trafficking and illegal immigration.

Defense Secretary Mattis Friday night approved paying for up to 4,000 National Guard personnel from the Pentagon budget through the end of September.

Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, Kirstjen Nielsen held a press conference at the White House to discuss President Trump’s plans to secure the border with troops.

TGP: President Trump signed the legislation this week.

Texas and Arizona officials are deploying a total of 400 troops to the Mexican border, just days after President Trump’s order aiming to stop illegal crossings and drug trafficking, they said Friday.

Texas, which has the longest border with Mexico, sent its first National Guard members Friday evening following a news conference where military officials detailed plans to send about 250 guardsmen to its 1,241-mile-long border within 72 hours. Arizona, whose border with Mexico spans about 375 miles, plans to send 150 troops by next week.
