National Guard to Be Deployed to Southern Border Immediately

National Guard to Be Deployed to Southern Border Immediately

In a supporting role, possibly for aerial reconnaissance, the Guard will help U.S. Customs and Border Protection personnel with stopping illegal immigrants from entering the country, Nielsen said at a White House briefing with reporters. "It will take time to have the details in place, but we are beginning today and we are moving quickly".

Homeland Security secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said: "We continue to see unacceptable levels of illegal drugs, risky gang activity, transnational criminal organisations and illegal immigration flow across our southern border".

The report comes as Trump's proposed border wall has yet to be paid for and constructed, leaving the southern border just as open as it was under former President Obama. "Today is the day we want to start this process", Nielsen said.

Ernst served as a battalion commander in the Iowa Army National Guard.

In Texas, which already has about 100 National Guard members stationed on the border, Republican Gov. Greg Abbott, said the president's decision "reinforces Texas' longstanding commitment to secure our southern border and uphold the Rule of Law".

Trump first floated the prospect of sending military personnel to the border Tuesday, calling it a "big step" during a meeting with the leaders of three Baltic nations at the White House.

The North Carolina National Guard contains many different specialties, including troops focused on engineering, airlifts and logistics. Nielsen said she thinks troops will act as support to Border Patrol similar as they did during the Bush operation.

"We've recently seen the numbers of illegal border crossings rise from 40-year lows last April to back to previous levels", Nielsen said.

Five Shabaab fighters killed in Somalia strike — United States military
Fierce gun battle lasts for several hours after attack on military camp in Bulo Marer, 160km southwest of Mogadishu . This claim was dismissed by al-Shabab's military operations spokesperson Abdiaziz Abu Mus'ab.

She said the administration had drafted legislation and would be asking congress to provide the legal authority and resources to address "this crisis at our borders".

United States President Donald Trump.

The attorney general's office adds, President Obama and President Bush also sent troops down to the border, and he expects they'll be equally as effective, if not more under President Trump.

"I don't believe in the American dream, because the president over there is a son of a bitch who doesn't like immigrants", she said.

Trump announced on Tuesday that he plans to deploy the military to the southern border until his long-promised wall is built.

Trump has also demanded Mexico break up the caravan of hundreds of Central Americans traveling to the U.S.

The White House gave very few details of its plan to further militarize the border, but one thing a Trump administration official did say was that Trump plans to ask at least the governors of Texas, Arizona, New Mexico and California to deploy their guard units. Recent, highly-publicized caravans of thousands of foreigners heading for America's border emphasize that it is past time for Congress to reform laws that entice and reward foreign nationals who illegally invade America.

The mobilization only makes sense as a very expensive way to send a message: that Donald Trump is still tough on immigration, damn it.

Nielsen said the USA continues to see "unacceptable levels" of illegal drugs, unsafe gang activity, transnational criminal organizations and illegal immigration flow across the southern border.
